Large HDL >10 μmol/L
The usual answer given is for cholesterol associated with apo-a1 protein
, the chief organizing protein of HDL
particles, called hdl-c & mg/dl.
But this is not the correct or most important.
Hdl is a complex particle which carries fat molecules, not just cholesterol. Hdl particle concentrations are measured in µmol/l. Large HDL particles are the protective ones & should be ?10 µmol/l for low risk.
