Dysfunctional Cholesterol Can Impact Your Heart Health
There’s good cholesterol, bad cholesterol and a new study says there’s also dysfunctional cholesterol.
Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic say good cholesterol called HDL helps protect the heart.
However, in some cases, a protein in HDL can turn bad and start hardening the arteries.
Doctors say patients with higher levels of this dysfunctonal cholesterol also have a higher risk of heart attack.
