I just received my lipid panel. I didn't get any info from the doc because he wanted me to pay for another visit and I refused. I think the numbers look pretty good but I don't know what some of it means. The name on the paper says "Lipid panel plus"
I've been paleo about 6 months, I've lost 70lbs and feel great. I no longer eat low carb, but still paleo, plus potatoes on occasion(once a week).
Total Cholesterol 229, a little high by CW, I'm not worried
HDL: 55, good, could be a little better
TC/H: 4.2, wondering if this means trigs or total / hdl
LDL: 157, probably calculated so I'm not worrying about it
VLDL: 18, not sure what this is
So, any idea what TC/H and VLDL mean? and I'd like to hear opinions on my numbers.
