While most docs and patients focus on high LDL (bad) cholesterol it has been known for some time that low HDL (good) cholesterol is an independent risk factor for heart disease. I was one of those patients who had low LDL cholesterol so my doc told me I was safe but never even mentioned my HDL cholestrol was low as well.
Unfortunately, there are not as many ways to treat low HDL as there are to treat high LDL. Has your doctor discussed your HDL cholesterol with you? If so, how are you treating it? Your experience, could help many community members so please chime in!
