HDL & LDL - There is a Difference
Cholesterol can't dissolve in the bloodstream, so it depends on two things to carry it to where it needs to go. High-density lipoproteins (HDL), or "good" cholesterol, act as scavengers removing "bad" cholesterol from the body.
Low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, carry cholesterol throughout the body. Too much LDL in the blood causes cholesterol to build up along arterial walls, forming plaque that can block arteries. When you have your cholesterol checked at the doctor's office, they are looking at these (HDL and LDL) levels as well as your triglyceride levels.
