How does high density lipoprotein leads to diabetes?

How does high density lipoprotein leads to diabetes?

It does not: Low hdl-cholesterol does not cause diabetes. However, diabetes is often associated with low hdl-cholesterol and other abnormalities of lipids and lipoproteins. The derangements of lipids and lipoproteins commonly seen with diabetes is one of the major drivers of increased cardiovascular disease. ...Read more

Whats best high density lipoprotein cholesterol range?

Whats best high density lipoprotein cholesterol range?

Higher the better: Acceptable hdl-c traditionally has a lower level in men of 40 mg/dl and 50 mg/dl in women. But generally, the higher the better. The problem is that our current therapies (lifestyle and drugs) have minimal to modest impact on raising hdl-c. Future agents may be more effective, but the proof of improved outcome will be needed. Plus, all hdl-c may not be alike, some more functional than others. ...Read more

What is the difference between HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein)?

What is the difference between HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein)?

Big difference: Ldl, when found in high concentrations in the blood, can enter your artery walls and initiate an inflammatory reaction that culminates in the development of atherosclerosis, plaque formation in the arterial wall. Hdl had many functions. If HDL is functioning well it can help to prevent atherosclerosis. One of its major functions is to remove cholesterol from the arterial wall. ...Read more

What health risks are associated with a very high concentration of high density lipoproteins in the bloodstream?

How high density lipoprotein(hdl) play a role in fats in body?

How high density lipoprotein(hdl) play a role in fats in body?

Complicated molecule: Hdl-c is more than a scavenger particle of cholesterol in blood vessels. It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, thrombotic characteristics as well. There are families of hdl, not all of which may be beneficial. Plus, HDL may change in the circulation depending on active disease states. It also exchanges triglycerides & bad cholesterol in the circulation for disposal. Treatment benefit unknown. ...Read more

How are high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) related to your heart health?

Can regress artery: plaque. HDL is not cholesterol but complex protein particles, 1, 2 or 3 ApoA-1 organizing proteins plus ~100 other proteins. HDL are fat/lipid scavenger particles: cells having excess lipids can bind HDL-particles to remove lipids, then excrete the HDL-particles into the extracellular water around the cell & the HDL-particles will carry the fats elsewhere; potentially to the liver for excretion. ...Read more
