So what is HDL’s real role in coronary heart disease?

It may be known as the good cholesterol, but it’s been unclear exactly how high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) protects against coronary atherosclerosis.

Now researchers have discovered that medium-sized HDL particles (MS-HDL-P) and the number of HDL particles (HDL-P) are better markers of coronary artery disease than HDL-C per se.

The say it is possible to move past HDL-C to measures that better reflect
