HDL cholesterol is usually considered “good cholesterol” and is cardioprotective; however you ca have too much. If you have high HDL levels, we would advise you to discuss these results with a GP to consider further investigations. If you have low HDL levels, this can also be problematic, depending on your other lipid levels (LDL and triglycerides). Lifestyle changes should be considered if you have low HDL, especially if you have underlying health problems such as hypertension.
