There are different type of cholesterol such as total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol had been known to be 'bad' cholesterol as it increase risk of strokes, heart attack etc. While, HDL cholesterol is known to be 'good' cholesterol as it reduce the risk of such medical conditions. Triglycerides are not cholesterol, they are another type of fat. But they often get measured when cholesterol level is measured.
