LDL “Bad” Cholesterol

"Bad" cholesterol or LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) refers to the carrier that transports cholesterol to the arteries leading over time to the narrowing of the arteries and serious problems including atherosclerosis, stroke and heart attacks. LDL in diabetes patients should be kept <100 mg/dl and even below 70 mg/dl if you have cardiovascular disease.
