How LDL Particles Cause Atherosclerosis

Welcome to The Center for Cholesterol Management. For the past fifty years, medical science has learned a lot about the causes of heart disease.  At first, doctors looked at total cholesterol numbers but then discovered that not all cholesterol was dangerous.

That's when doctors discovered the importance of identifying the different types of cholesterol - LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) and HDL (the "good" cholesterol).  Generally speaking, the lower the LDL numbers and the higher the HDL numbers, the better.

While measuring cholesterol is helpful, knowing these numbers isn't enough for all patients.  Doctors are beginning to realize that determining your risk of a heart attack is not as simple as just measuring your cholesterol.  A staggering fact shows this:

Doctors now know that approximately 50% of people who had heart attacks have had "normal" cholesterol numbers at the time.

This has caused many doctors to look for answers beyond cholesterol.
