LDL Cholesterol  (Low-Density Lipoprotein), often referred to as “bad” cholesterol, is a type of cholesterol that can accumulate in the walls of blood vessels, leading to atherosclerosis and increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

• High Levels: Elevated LDL levels are a major risk factor for coronary artery disease. Levels above 3 mmol/L are generally considered high, but the target level can vary based on individual heart disease risk factors.

• Low Levels: Lower LDL cholesterol is generally better for heart health. However, extremely low levels should be discussed with a healthcare provider, as they might be a sign of other health issues.
