    Default High HDL a Heart Attack Risk?

    Just read this very short, not in depth article regarding HDL. Answering a readers query, the DM doctor states that new research shows that levels above 1.4 are high risk.
    Googling gives me conflicting information.

    Whoops - my HDL is 3.9. Am I worried - NO.
    One is too many a thousand not enough.

    So the "good" cholesterol is now "bad" cholesterol.

    I'm screwed.

    LDL = low density lipoprotein
    HDL = high density lipoprotein

    Lipoprotein = transport mechanism for C27H460 taking it to any place in the body where it is needed.

    The very idea that you can have a bad bus and a good bus, a bad taxi and a good taxi etc etc makes my logic circuits overload.
