    here this should help

    Fats in the blood are called lipids. Lipids join with protein in your blood to form lipoproteins. Lipoproteins make energy for your body, so they're important to the cells in your body.

    Three kinds of lipoproteins, (also called cholesterol), are in your blood: (1) high-density (also called HDL, for short) cholesterol, (2) low-density (also called LDL) cholesterol and (3) very low-density (VLDL) cholesterol. HDL is sometimes called the "good cholesterol" because it keeps cholesterol from buiding up in yur arteries. (You can remember this is the "good" cholesterol if you think "H is for healthy.") LDL can be thought of as the "bad" cholesterol because high LDL levels can increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke. (You can remember this is the "bad" cholesterol if you think "L is for lousy.")

    Hope this helps bro.
