    The one-fourth of women with low triglyceride levels of less than 74 mg/dL were 2 times more likely to have a hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding stroke) than the one-forth of women with the highest triglyceride levels of greater than 156 mg/dL during an average follow-up of 19.3 years according to a new study.

    “LDL-C levels <70 mg/dL and low triglyceride levels were associated with increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke among women," the authors of the paper concluded.

    Another study: Men & Women with LDL > 159 mg/dL, 48% less likely to have hemorrhagic stroke

    The paper notes that another study (Sturgeon, Stroke, 2007) found that among men and women, those with LDL levels in the top quartile (LDL levels greater than 159 mg/dL) were 48% less likely to have a hemorrhagic stroke than those in the bottom three quartiles (LDL levels less than 159 mg/dL).

    Subjects in current study: 27,937 women

    The current study was a prospective cohort study among 27,937 women enrolled in the Women’s Health Study.
