Abstract


Low serum high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) is an independent coronary risk factor, because HDL acts to mediate the uptake of peripheral cholesterol and return it to the liver. Therefore, raising HDL-C may be one of the goals in the management of atherogenic dyslipidemia for cardiovascular disease risk reduction. Although lifestyle modification such as diet and exercise may be important to increase HDL-C, effects of dietary factors on HDL-C remained largely unknown. Interracial differences on HDL metabolism may exist. Here we reviewed published articles about effect of alcohol consumption on HDL metabolism in Asian populations, regarding systematic review and meta-analysis and also clinical studies performed in Asian populations as important articles in this review.
