We've been stressing for over 16 years now that HDL is not the most important item to watch to help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

To raise HDL and keep it high

Many people become frustrated when they lower their total cholesterol and find that their HDL has gone down. But that's natural, the body makes HDL to take out the plaque producing elements, so when total cholesterol is lowered, it doesn't need to make as much HDL. In fact, there are no good studies that reveal what a good HDL level is for people who maintain a total cholesterol level below the "heart attack-proof number of 150 (3.9mm/L).

Keeping LDL (the stuff that puts the plaque in your arteries) down is as important as keeping HDL at aafe level.
