Gets complicated


Bottom line is sub-fractions of HDL cholesterol and measurement so of HDL size or particle number is still not considered routine. Risk sees to be best predicted by HDL particle number but we do not have any evidence that using medications to target HDL p or HDL size helps. Recently the national lipid association released a report suggesting not to use HDL sizing for risk evaluation. www.lipid.org
