Elevated LDL Cholesterol


Elevated LDL cholesterol, also known as high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, is a condition where the levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood are higher than the normal range. LDL cholesterol is often referred to as 'bad' cholesterol because it contributes to plaque buildup in the arteries, which can lead to atherosclerosis and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
