1 doctor agrees

In brief: Very indirectly

If it raises triglycerides, then it might lower HDL cholesterol a little but i don't think it's a significant effect.

In brief: Transfats not good

For you. Margarine may lower HDL which is bad, however, margarines contain transfats that are a known risk factor for heart disease.
Avoid using transfats.
