 HDL function is more important than HDL levels

Dr. Pourramezan conducts research at the Division of Cardiology at University of California Los Angeles.  She completed her medical education in Mashhad and served as a clinician, public health educator, health researcher and advocator.  She was a member of several health organizations and received awards and was recognized for her valuable efforts.  In the US, Dr. Pourramezan has been serving at the VA Medical Center in Westwood and conducting research at UCLA Center for Health Sciences.  In her talk she will explain why we should not allow our low HDL levels to be a health concern.   She will indicate that while in populations low HDL is associated with higher risk of heart disease and stroke, in an individual, it is not necessarily a cause for alarm.  Many individuals with low HDL levels live long with no complications and many with high HDL levels end up having heart disease or stroke.  Dr. Pourramezan will emphasize that HDL is a highly complex molecule containing some 200 proteins and hundreds of lipids and other components and serves many functions.  The key is to lower our LDL and reduce the need for having high HDL.
