Cholesterol is a type of lipid or fat your body uses to function properly. The goal of health is to achieve a state of balance in your body to ensure it functions optimally. The moment any organ or system in your body slips out of balance, health issues become apparent. There are four cholesterol-related measurements that your physician tracks:

Your total cholesterol count
The amount of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in your bloodstream
The amount of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol present
Your triglyceride count

HDL is referred to as the good cholesterol while LDL is the bad cholesterol. Hyperlipidemia is a condition in which your body contains too much LDL cholesterol. In general, you want to raise your HDL count while reducing your LDL count. Hyperlipidemia increases the presence of fatty deposits in your arteries and can lead to blockages, resulting in a variety of coronary diseases.
