What are LDL and HDL?

Health has gradually become a public concern, and today we introduce LDL & HDL.

 

What are LDL and HDL?

 

Two types of lipoproteins carry cholesterol in and out of cells. One is low-density lipoprotein, LDL. The other is high-density lipoprotein or HDL.

 

LDL cholesterol is considered "bad" cholesterol because it causes fatty buildup in the arteries (atherosclerosis). This narrows the arteries and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

 

HDL cholesterol can be considered "good" cholesterol because healthy levels protect against heart attacks and strokes.

 

HDL carries LDL (bad) cholesterol from the arteries back to the liver, where LDL is broken down and excreted from the body. But high-density lipoprotein cholesterol does not completely eliminate low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Only one-third to one-quarter of blood cholesterol is carried by HDL.

 

Triglycerides

 

Triglycerides are the most common type of fat in the body. They store excess energy from your diet.

 

High triglyceride levels combined with high LDL (bad) cholesterol or low HDL (good) cholesterol are linked to the buildup of fat in the walls of arteries, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

 

Our LDL Model

 

Low-Density Lipoprotein Blood Vessel Model is an LDL container simulation model. Visible is normal, fibrous plaque, plaque combined with three blood vessels.

 

LDL is a microscopic spot composed of the outer edge of lipoprotein and the cholesterol center. Its full name is "low-density lipoprotein".

 

This is bad because it becomes part of the plaque, which can block the arteries, making heart attacks and strokes more likely.

 

Low-Density Lipoprotein Blood Vessel Model can help people understand the damage of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol to blood vessels more clearly and easily.

 

Improve people's awareness of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes, and other diseases, and pay attention to the daily diet.
