HDL is called as high density lipoprotein. When compared to the other types of cholesterol, HDL is denser and hence known as high density lipoprotein. You can find the HDL cholesterol in your body with triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol. HDL below 40 mg/dl are dangerous and has higher risk of heart disease.
HDL is known as good cholesterol. It is a very good factor for human health. High level of HDL reduces heart disease risk and lower level increases the risk.
Consider the total cholesterol is 100, LDL is 50 and triglycerides is 25, then
HDL = 100 - 50 - ( 25 / 5 )
Non HDL = 100 - 45
Therefore, the HDL value is 45 mg/dL and non HDL value is 55 mg/dL
