Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and today we’re gonna talk about HDL problems. We’re gonna talk about good cholesterol and bad cholesterol and how you know what the difference is. High-density lipoprotein or HDL, is considered the good cholesterol, and if you have problems with HDL being too low, I’m going to make some recommendations for you today. First off, did you know that HDL actually helps remove bad cholesterol, known as low-density lipoprotein from your blood? Optimal levels of HDL should be in the range of 50 to 75 mg/dL in the blood, that’s just a range, don’t worry about the term, but it should be between 50 to 75.
