Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol and Factor involved in It

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol and Factor involved in It

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol: Cholesterol is a wax like chemical, which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages in heart arteries, resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:
1. Heart disease
2. Stroke
3. Atherosclerosis
4. Peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol: This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the blood stream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. 

Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

Women - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides
Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are:
a. Lack of physical activity
b. Obesity or being overweight
c. Excesses in alcohol consumption
d. Smoking
e. Bad diet and others

Thus the good cholesterol versus bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in lifestyle and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad. You can consult a cardiologist for more details.

I feel dry sputum sticking on throat and chest for last 30 years (i am 66 yrs. Every 10-15 mts I hake to take deep breath. Also for last 1 year, while doing brisk walk, burning sensation on the chest & it gradually reduces accompanied by belching. I had tb 42 years back. Drs examine my chest & find it clear. What should I do ?

DNB (Respiratory diseases), MBBS

Yes obviously because you don't have anything abnormal in chest. All you seem to have is a post tb allergy state in your nose and eating pipe. It is common post tb. Dry sputum is due to nasal & sinus fluids running from the back of nose over your throat. Burning & belching is due to allergy in eating pipe. I can help.

If levelers or shutters are used, be sure to clean them weekly with a damp cloth. The crib should be placed away from air vents. A HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air-filter) can be placed under the crib. The filter will help to decrease airborne allergens such as pollens, mold spores, and animal danders.
