    Does more LDL colesterol lower HDL colesterol. I could have sworn I read this somewhere, but I can not find the artical. Can someone tell me if they read about this study, and if so where?

    They are regulated in different ways to keep them where ther suppose to be.
    That is what the Doc told me as the good is trying to become great.
    Its best if both are fairly stable and fall within guide lines.
    Best to ask a professional. Opinions differ.

    LDL: bad cholesterol. Your goal LDL is based on heart disease risk factors and 10 year hear disease risk score. Lotta MD's are too lazy to calculate your 10 year risk score and risk factors and automatically set a LDL goal of <100.

    HDL: good cholsterol. Higher is better. Regular exercise and diet are best ways to increase your HDL

    3rd component is triglycerides: Lower is better.

    Factors such as diet, genetics, and lifestyle that raise LDL also lower HDL and raise TG's.

    80% of cholesterol in your blood is produced by your liver, and remainder comes from diet. Genetics play a big role in how bad your cholesterol is. If you are on a statin, I highly recommend you use Co-Q10.
