If your triglycerides are still 223 after 9 months of low-carbing, you may have a large genetic component in your lipid profile. You don't give your age, but values this high are unusual in young adults, which would further suggest genetic... (more)

From what I understand , if you eliminate saturated fat and replace it with PUFA for a few weeks your numbers will look good. You may trigger a lot of inflammation and be far worse off, but you numbers will look good to insurance buffoons.
