What does it mean when your good cholesterol is bad ?

What does it mean when your GOOD cholesterol is bad ? LOL? Usually it s the bad cholesterol that rises, but when it s your good cholesterol that is bad exactly what does that mean? Some of these doctors either can t explain things or don t want to. I like to know in medical terms what is happening. And also, even if a product has ZERO cholesterol but has fat, does that make your cholesterol rise regardless? That is what I thought thought too about the HDL...that if it was bad it was low...I almost think of it as being mal-nourished in a sense, not getting enough goodies to keep it up there??

It probably means that someone believes that your levels of HDL are too low. most of these doctors simply cant explain things, as they only regurgutate what the pharmaceutical industry tells them If you want to know about cholestrol, I've spelt it all out here
