Why is it bad to have LDL to low?
billh99 responded:
Cholesterol is a key to many basic body functions.

However, a lower limit for LDL has never been determined.

Very low LDL can be caused by other diseases. And those disease can be a problem.

However, there are some people that have generic very low LDL and are otherwise very healthy. IIRC they have LDL in the 5 to 10 range.
