USA], Aug 12 ( ANI ): You may want to add almonds to your diet as according to a recent study, they not only help boost levels of "good" or HDL cholesterol
, but also improves the way it removes cholesterol from the body.
The strong inverse association between HDL cholesterol
concentrations and risk of coronary disease gave rise to the "HDL hypothesis"--namely that a therapy that increased concentrations of HDL might reduce risk of atherosclerotic disease.
The study also bolstered established evidence that LDL cholesterol and triglycerides boost the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) but showed no contribution of HDL cholesterol
to that risk.
The relationship between increased levels of HDL cholesterol
and early death is unexpected and not fully clear yet.
The next most likely contributors were the negative effect of cumulative hypertension and the beneficial effect of HDL cholesterol
A new study that included almost 40 randomized, controlled trials investigated whether drugs that raise HDL cholesterol
levels lower the risk of adverse cardiovascular outcomes.
As measuring Non- HDL cholesterol
in T2DM patients is simple, cost-effective and convenient because it does not require 12-hour fasting, which may be a risk for hypoglycaemia in these patients, clinicians may choose Non-HDL as a routine measure in everyday practice.
To identify if this compound truly was responsible for cocoa's effects on HDL cholesterol
, this study was designed.
Trouble is, other characteristics of HDL besides the total amount may correlate with heart attack and stroke risk, and simply increasing HDL cholesterol
may not be the key to cardiac protection, a Cleveland Clinic expert says.
Researchers have discovered a genetic variant that raises levels of good HDL cholesterol
The results are important because of the use of drugs, sometimes inflicting side effects, which are administered to boost HDL cholesterol
Results: When the blood lipid levels were compared between athletes and sedentary groups the triglyceride, cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels were found higher in sedentary subjects, whereas HDL cholesterol
was higher in athletes (p less than 0.
We aimed to establish reference intervals for serum total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol
and non-HDL cholesterol
concentrations in Batswana adults.
Older studies have sugested that HDL cholesterol
may also help improve mobility.
Taking antiretrovirals for a longer time raised the chance of achieving a normal high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol alter having a low HDL cholesterol
in a large study in France.
