Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), often deemed the “bad cholesterol”, is a lipoprotein that carries cholesterol throughout the body via blood circulation. Due to its role in dispositioning cholesterol TO tissues and organs of the body, having high levels of LDL can lead to plaque formation in the arteries, possibly increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. (American Heart Association, 2014)

It is recommended by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to maintain a LDL cholesterol level lower than 100 mg/dL, optimally. (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, 2016)

LDL size has been shown to be linked to cardiovascular health. The larger the LDL particles, the greater correlation to a cardiovascular event. (Foroutan, MS, RDN, 2015)

Lowering LDL to the levels of a new-born baby has been shown to dramatically decrease the risk of heart disease. (News Medical Life Sciences, 2016)

Direct homogeneous assays rather than determining LDL-C values based on the Friedewald calculation may improve lipoprotein analyses and allow for a more accurate LDL value, especially in regards to patients suffering from hyperlipidemia (Nauck, Warnick, & Rifai, 2002).
