HDL % of Total


HDL % of total represents what proportion of your total body cholesterol is carried by HDL, or High Density Lipoprotein - a molecule which carries cholesterol and lipids to the liver to be destroyed. Other lipoproteins carrying cholesterol around the body include LDL, IDL, VLDL and chylomicrons. A percentage recording of how much of the total cholesterol that HDL makes up is considered to be more indicative of your risk of cardiovascular disease than total cholesterol alone.
