Good and bad cholesterol.
In general, blood cholesterol tests give a person’s low-density lipoprotein (LDL) level and their high-density lipoprotein (HDL) level, with HDL being considered the “good” cholesterol and LDL the “bad” cholesterol. Only a physician can make dietary recommendations based on these findings, taking many other health factors into consideration. It is wise, of course, to watch fat consumption and monitor cholesterol issues for all seniors in home care. For those with a diagnosed cholesterol problem, specific eating strategies can help.
