Scientists find low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) in people who have a high risk of heart attack. Cholesterol-LDL-called MGmin is very sticky, so easy to stick to the arteries and form a thick pile so that arteries become narrow.
The results of this English team to explain why a higher risk of heart disease in diabetics, thus opening opportunities for the creation of an anti-cholesterol drugs to date.
In the research by a team from Warwick University, scientists create MGmin-LDL in the laboratory through glycation, sugar groups, which added to the bad cholesterol (LDL). The process to change the form of cholesterol is becoming more and more quickly form a sticky plaque deposits, narrow the arteries and reduces blood flow, and turn them into “super bad cholesterol.”
“The results of this research provide greater understanding about the type of cholesterol that contribute to heart disease in diabetics and the elderly. The next challenge is to control this type of bad cholesterol so as not to endanger the arteries,” said Naila Rabbani, researchers say.
