What Do The Following Stand For And Mean? Tgl, Ahdl, Tsh

Is TGL or AHDL or TSH the same as LDL?

Answer

Hi CJ,

Each acronym has a variety of possible meanings, I'll give you the medical one:

TGL - triglycerides or triglyceride lipase

AHDL - I'm not familiar with this acronym. (HDL - High Density Lipoprotein)

TSH - thyroid stimulating hormone

Each is different from LDL (low density lipoprotein).

All the best,
