If your cholesterol and HDL are really good, do you need to worry about your LDL?

Probably not, but it depends.When doctors do a cholesterol blood test, they’re looking for your low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol; your high-density lipoprotein, or HDL; and your triglycerides, or fatty acids in the blood. LDL is considered the “bad” cholesterol because is gets deposited in blood vessel walls as plaque; HDL is “good” because it take cholesterol out of the blood.
