A lower level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol may be a key discriminator of increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) among postmenopausal women. HDL-cholesterol-related ratios (such as total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol) provide a powerful predictive tool, independently from other known CAD risk factors.
