Dyslipidemia refers to a lipid profile that increases the risk of atherosclerotic development. Generally accepted, dyslipidemia is a condition in which LDL levels are elevated and HDL levels are low. HDL particles are involved in reverse cholesterol transport, in that they transport cholesterol from tissues and other lipoproteins to the liver. Among the lipoproteins, LDL is most heavily involved in the atherosclerotic process and also oxidation of the LDL causes this lipoprotein to be altered and can initiate damage leading to the atherosclerotic process. In addition, oxidized LDL is more likely to be taken up into the atherosclerotic plaque.
