    Men with low HDL cholesterol levels of 30 mg/dl or less were 81% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease during an average follow-up of 4.9 years than men with HDL levels of 41-50 mg/dl according to a 2016 study from Canada.

    The study found that HDL levels that were either too high (>90 mg/dl) or too low (≤30 mg/dl) were associated with an increased risk of death when compared to men with more moderate HDL levels (41-80 mg/dl).


    Subjects: 631,762 people

    The study followed 631,762 people from the CANHEART (Cardiovascular Health in Ambulatory Care Research Team) dataset, which was created by linking together 17 different individual-level data sources.

    On average, people were 57-years-old and had an HDL level of 55 mg/dl.
