Jamie Question 4

Post by jrodriguez54 on Mon May 15, 2017 10:05 pm

I learned that the NIH recommends cholesterol testing for children between 9-11 and 17-21. Testing in between those ranges is not recommended due to the higher chance of false test results.

I knew that niacin, aka vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid, was used to treat hyperlipidemia, but it also has the added benefit of raising HDL levels.

Obviously smoking is bad for you, but I didn't realize that one of the negatives of it is that it can lower HDL levels.
