Cholesterol Ratio

Home » Cholesterol Ratio
Optimal Health Solution in the press

Cholesterol ratio can provide useful information about the risk of heart disease.

Formula: Total cholesterol/HDL

Explanation:

HDL (good cholesterol): High-density lipoprotein, high levels seem to protect against heart attack. It helps to remove cholesterol from the blood by carrying bad cholesterol (LDL) back to the liver to process and prevent the formation of plaque.

LDL (bad cholesterol): Low-density lipoprotein, a major risk factor for heart disease, excess cholesterol circulates in the blood and it can build up and stick to the wall of arteries and cause arteries to harden and narrow. It combines with other substances and forms thick and hard plaque, this condition is known as atherosclerosis.

Total cholesterol: the sum of HDL and LDL

According to American Heart Association (AHA), an optimal cholesterol ratio is about 3.5 to 1; a higher ratio indicates a higher risk of heart disease.
