LDL Cholestoral

Were you looking for information about LDL Cholesterol? LDL cholestoral is a common misspelling of LDL cholesterol.
 
LDL (low density lipoprotein) is also known as "bad" cholesterol because it "lets go" of any excess cholesterol in the blood, which can result in a buildup of plaque on the walls of the arteries. Over time, this buildup of plaque can cause a narrowing or hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). If you have a high LDL level, you are at an increased risk of developing heart disease. However, lifestyle changes and certain medications can help lower your LDL level.
