- n. large lipoproteins rich in triglycerides; VLDLs circulate through the blood giving up their triglycerides to fat and muscle tissue until the VLDL remnants are modified and converted into LDL
“It's also wise to know your entire cholesterol profile, including total HDL, LDL and VLDL.”
“The blood tests they take to measure your cholesterol look at different components of fatty acids in your blood, components with acronyms like VLDL, HDL, and LDL.”
“My cholesterol readings are: LDL = 189/HDL = 48/VLDL = 24/Total cholesterol”
“Far more important are LDL and VLDL cholesterol levels, Triglycerides, blood glucose – any number of other indicators.”
“VLDL Cholesterol Cal: 19 mg/dL; LDL Cholesterol Calc: 78 mg/dL.”
“In August of 2002, my HDL was up to 124, triglycerides 37, VLDL 7, and a direct-measure LDL of 125.”
“Also, I consider HDL and LDL good cholesterol–except for VLDL and LPa.”
“Because then I got to take a new medication for the triglycerides on Friday, something called Tricor, which works on your VLDL very-low-density lipoproteins.....”
“TG and VLDL put me to a great disadvantage in front of the gathering which did not want to believe me anyway.”
“However lower LDL in this case will actually lead to higher amount of much smaller sized and more harmful VLDL particles … a double whammy of lower HDL and higher VLDL … Could this be why we have more risk of plaques with statins in combination with the ‘healthy’ high carb/ lowfat diet?”
‘VLDL’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for VLDL.
