Apolipoprotein A1 (APOA1)

What is it and how does it affect me?

ApoA-1 promotes the formation of HDL (healthy cholesterol). Low ApoA-1 may cause low HDL and put you at risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Adapting healthy habits like sleeping, exercising, and eating healthy foods can improve ApoA-1 levels, but there may also be underlying genetic causes for low ApoA-1.
