Triglycerides, HDL and cardiac risk

Most reliable predictor of heart risk 

The ratio of Triglycerides to HDL: TG:HDL ratio is the most reliable predictor of heart risk, not LDL..

Ideally it should be 1; but no more than 2. You want TG <100 (<95 better); HDL >60 in men (>70 in women).

TG/HDL ratio is also termed AIP (Atherogenic index of plasma).
