Healthy Heart Reports

Hdl Cholesterol Prevents Heart Attacks

People who have blood levels of the good HDL cholesterol below 35 are at increased risk for heart attacks, and raising HDL cholesterol helps to prevent them.

The bad LDL cholesterol causes heart attacks by depositing cholesterol into arteries to form plaques. The good HDL cholesterol prevents heart attacks by carrying cholesterol to the liver and preventing the bad LDL cholesterol from being oxidized to form plaques. People with low HDL levels often have high blood triglyceride levels, usually are carbohydrate insensitive, not particularly fat sensitive, and therefore, should reduce their intake of sugar, bakery products and pastas and other sources of refined carbohydrates. The vitamin, niacin, may be the first choice drug to raise blood levels of HDL cholesterol because it appears to be more effective than other drugs, rarely interferes with the use of other drugs, and is very inexpensive.
