High lipoprotein (a)

Lipoprotein (a) is a lot like LDL cholesterol (sometimes called ‘bad cholesterol’) but it’s more ‘sticky’. If you have high levels of lipoprotein (a) in your blood, it can stick to your artery walls and clog them up, leading to heart disease and stroke at a young age.

High lipoprotein (a) is passed on in your genes. This webinar explains what you need to know about lipoprotein (a).
