I am a 24-year old female, 101 lb (46kg), 5'3" (1.60m), been paleo (mainly meat fish eggs dairy, very high fat, low/moderate carbs) for over 1 year.
I've just had a routine blood test, which included the following result:
Total cholesterol 550 mg/dl
Triglycerides 49 mg/dl
Fasting blood glucose 75 mg/dl
Now, I know Total cholesterol is pretty much meaningless, and I need to get HDL and LDL tested (will get another blood test in a few weeks for this), but I've been looking at some paleo sites and examples of other people's results, and while many people have "high" cholesterol (higher than CW normal range), I haven't found anything as high as 500... Even if my HDL turns out to be something like 200 (which would be A LOT), that still leaves 300 as LDL....
On the bright side, trigs are very low which I'm happy about (am I right in thinking low trigs are a good sign?).
How worried should I be? Any danger to having high LDL if all other health variables are OK?
