Oxidized LDL Cholesterol with Lipids
Having high LDL cholesterol levels can place you at risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Current guidelines recommend that your LDL levels should be below 100 mg/dL. However, not only does having high LDL cholesterol levels place you at risk for heart disease, the type of LDL particles circulating in your blood can also make a difference. LDL particles can range between large and buoyant to small.
Oxidized LDL (OxLDL) is formed when the ApoB protein on LDL particles becomes oxidized. Elevated levels may be the result of poor lifestyle choices and identify risk of metabolic syndrome.
