The stomach is a muscular sac that is important for absorbing food and preparing food for further digestion.
Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) is one of the three main types of cholesterol. VLDL cholesterol contains the highest amount of triglyceride, which is a blood fat. VLDL is considered“bad” cholesterol because it contributes to an increase in the risk of coronary artery disease. VLDL cholesterol cannot be measured directly and is therefore calculated as a percentage of triglyceride levels.
