Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain the leading cause of death in the world despite the efforts in prevention and treatment. Low plasma HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) is consistently associated with increased risk of atherosclerotic disease. In addition to the well defined role in reverse cholesterol transport, HDL has other protective functions. In healthy individuals HDL has anti-thrombotic, antioxidant anti-inflammatory and nitric oxide dependent vascular relaxation effects. Individuals diagnosed with diabetes have low levels or impaired HDL metabolism. Thus, the lack of these protective effects is one of the factors increasing their CVD risk.
