Lipoprotein particles are proteins that encapsulate lipids like cholesterol and triglycerides to transport them in the bloodstream. The more the lipids, the lower the density of the lipoproteins. Low Density or LDL particles can deposit themselves on the wall of the arteries to form plaque and overtime build up to cause atherosclerosis. If a piece of plaque drops from the artery wall, an acute problem arises where the clot can obstruct a blood vessel causing stroke or heart attack.
LDL = Low Density Lipoprotein
