  • An elevated level of VLDL cholesterol like elevated LDL cholesterol is considered a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

  • The presence of high VLDL in addition to high LDL may affect the choice of therapy used to lower a person's cholesterol, such as lifestyle changes or drug treatment.
