The higher your HDL (good) cholesterol the more natural protection you have against heart attack. Medical experts believe that HDL carries harmful cholesterol away from the arteries and removes excess cholesterol from arterial plaque, slowing its buildup. Just as lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol is a primary goal of cholesterol treatment, raising HDL (good) cholesterol levels is also important. With the CardioChek home cholesterol test system, you can easily track your HDL level between physician visits.
