A study by researchers from Munich, Germany shows that high-density lipoprotein (HDL), a "good" cholesterol improves blood glucose levels, protects individuals from heart attacks and reduce weight. The incidence of an atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is higher in type 2 diabetes (T2D) individuals. The important factor for the occurrence of this disease is due to low circulating levels of HDL cholesterol. HDL cholesterol levels must improve for the proper functioning of muscles. ApoA-I is a major protein component of the HDL cholesterol that helps in burning calories. Both ApoA-I and HDL cholesterol improves usage of glucose and calories inside muscle cells. Researchers observed that as the levels of ApoA-I and HDL cholesterol raises there was greater protection against hyperglycemia and age-related diseases. ApoA-I is clinically tested for prevention and regression of atherosclerosis. Lead researcher of the study is Dr. Susanna Hofmann, Ludwigs Maximilians University, Munich, Germany. Some facts :
Measures to manage HDL cholesterol and blood glucose levels are same. Some tips are
