About Density Lipoprotein:

Cholesterol is an organic compound. It is waxy in substance, and found in the cells of the body. The blood cells circulate through the blood cells because of density lipoproteins, and it's synthesized in the liver. Cholesterol is not an essential nutrient in the body, but it's important for the cell membranes as they are naturally produced by our body.

HDL is a type of cholesterol that works for good health. It works well to remove fat from the walls of the artery, which lowers the risk of heart disease, but it is possible for HDL levels to be too high. It stands for high-density lipoproteins and it's known to be good because it carries all of the cholesterol from other parts of the body back to the liver. The liver then removes that cholesterol from the body. In normal, healthy subjects, normal HDL levels are known to promote angiogenesis, but it's not entirely understood as to why. There are more important functions of HDL and the structures and cholesterol transport abilities of HDL are determined by properties of their exchangeable apolipoproteins components.

LDL is known to be the "bad" cholesterol. It stands for low-density lipoproteins and in high levels, it leads to a buildup of bad cholesterol in the arteries. If you have too much of this, it can form into a plaque and this then builds up in your arteries, causing atherosclerosis. High LDL levels can also lead to other issues in your kidneys and people with diabetes often have higher LDL levels, too.
