Mnemonic For Good And Bad Cholesterol

Do you have trouble remembering which type of cholesterol is the "good cholesterol" and which is the bad? Here's a simple mnemonic that occurred to me:


HIGHER levels of HDL (good) cholesterol will make you and your doctor HAPPY. LOFTIER levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol will LOWER your and your doctor's spirits.

Hope this helps you keep these two important terms straight!
