New Study Shows Low Cholesterol Could Be A Risk Factor For Stroke In Women

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

Your doctor says lowering your LDL cholesterol is a good thing, but for women, new research indicates that might not be true. UPI reports that a study published Wednesday in Neurology found that women who lowered their LDL cholesterol below 70 milligrams had double the risk of suffering brain bleeding during a stroke than women whose LDL was between 100 and 1,300 milligrams. Prior to this study, high triglycerides were thought to increase a person's chance for a stroke, but the study shows that women with fasting triglyceride levels lower than 74 milligrams or non-fasting levels lower than 84 milligrams have twice the risk of a hemorrhagic stroke than women with much higher levels.
