sLDL particles are more atherogenic than large, buoyant LDL particles, meaning they easily permeate the inner arterial wall. Individuals with high levels of sLDL are 3 times more likely to have a heart attack. Therefore, it is vital to test for sLDL cholesterol to prevent and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The most significant factor that contributes to elevated sLDL levels includes a diet high in saturated fat and a sedentary lifestyle.
