High Density Lipoprotein

The chart above provides a visual comparison of high density lipoprotein breakdown in three categories: low, normal and desirable. The majority of the men who participated in this study exhibited low HDL values and may be at risk for future cardiovascular disease. However, the vast majority of the women displayed either normal or high levels of HDL in the serum and have low risk of heart disease.
