find that most physicians base their advice on studies and journal articles that involve patients whose lab levels are high. For instance, low HDL in people with high total cholesterol is a proven predictor of risk, but studies of the significance of low HDL in people with low total cholesterol don't exist.

The body makes HDL according to the amount of total cholesterol found, so when total cholesterol is lower, HDL will all also decrease. There is no evidence that low HDL in people with low total cholesterol is a valid predictor of risk.

Do you have any supporting document or study to support your above statement? I will be curious to see evidence. Thanks
