LDL cholesterol

LDL cholesterol, or low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, is the so-called “bad cholesterol“. LDL cholesterol builds up on your artery walls and makes the arteries narrower and harder for the blood to go through. This is the major cause of Myocardial ischemia and blood clot. Higher LDL cholesterol level generally means higher risk of heart attack. Medication is necessary for lowering your LDL cholesterol level.

The normal level of LDL cholesterol is < 190 mg/dl. And for high level LDL cholesterol treatment, doctors suggest statin.
