LDL

Bible DictionaryHepatitis Central (TM) Liver Disease Medical Glossary
Low Density Lipoprotein, Also known as "bad" cholesterol, LDL's are large, dense, protein-fat particles composed of a moderate proportion of protein and a high proportion of cholesterol. Higher levels of LDL's are associated with a greater risk of cardiovascular disease. The ideal LDL cholesterol blood level in the United States ranges from 60 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter of blood) to 160 mg/dL. The value of blood LDL cholesterol level by itself is limited. It should be compared to other blood lipid levels such as Total Cholesterol, HDL (High Density Lipopritein) Cholesterol, and triglycerides to draw accurate conclusions about diagnosis and treatment
