Having very low cholesterol DOUBLES the risk of hemorrhagic strokes in women, study finds
Researchers measured levels of LDL cholesterol, known as 'bad' because it can buildup in the arteries
For LDL cholesterol, optimal levels are generally less than 100 milligrams per deciliter of blood
But 0.8% of women with cholesterol 70 mg/dL or lower had a bleeding stroke compared to 0.4% of women with cholesterol between 100-130 mg/dL
Women's levels of triglycerides, fat found in the blood, were also measured
Those with the lowest levels had nearly double the risk of a stroke compared to women with the highest levels
