Risk calculators and risk factors for High HDL causes

Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]


The causes of elevated high-density lipoprotein (HDL) include life-style measures such as aerobic exercises, weight loss, smoking cessation, consumption of dietary fibers, as well as medications (e.g., fibrates, niacin, statins). Genetic factors which affect the catabolism of HDL have also been implicated in high HDL serum concentrations, including cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) deficiency and familial hyperalphalipoproteinemia or hepatic lipase deficiency.


Life Threatening Causes

Life-threatening causes include conditions which may result in death or permanent disability within 24 hours if left untreated.

High HDL does not have any life-threatening cause.
