Hdl --> high density lipoprotein

(Science: biochemistry) These lipoproteins acts to carry cholesterol in the bloodstream.

Raised high density lipoprotein levels have been correlated with a lower risk for heart disease. Less than 35 mg/dl is considered a positive risk factor for coronary artery disease, over 60 mg/dl is considered a negative risk factor (reduces your risk of heart disease).

recent studies show a low high density lipoprotein level is the strongest predictor of cardiovascular death in women.
