What blood tests should I get done? I want to get an idea on overall cholesterol so I'm guessing a VAPs test is something I want to include? I'm a 26 year old guy 162lbs I do HIIT bootcamp 4 days a week I am healthy with a BP of 110/60. Thank you (more)

I read through lots of lipid and VAP test questions here, but this seems to be a new one. Here are my VAP results: LDL 235 HDL 75 (>60 is optimal) TTL 331 (TTL:HDL = 4.4 where <5:1 is good & 3.5:1 is optimal) TRG 92 (<150 is good)... (more)

Dan, if you are comfortable where you are at, then stay there. Personally I would be interested in conducting an LDL experiment. Change nothing about your diet other than removing butter and the bulletproof coffee. I have seen some hypothesize... (more)

Look, the first thing is not to panic over your LDL which I would not describe as a "sharp rise." Your directly measured LDL was 150 compared to a calculated LDL in 2012 of 135. Assuming the 2012 number was accurate (an assumption), the change... (more)

your HDL is not low. they are looking for >= 40 mg/dL and you have 80. Your LDL appears to be fine, not remotely close to the worrisome range (plus we don't really know what high LDL is). Also Pattern A is good, here's the great wiki: LDL... (more)

Your Total to HDL is 2.4 (251/104), that's awesome. If you're worried I would check out some of Chris Masterjohn's work, If you don't want to sift through it you can listen to his podcasts with Chris Kresser Explains how we've come to this point... (more)

First off, don't panic as this isn't even remotely severe. If you just got off a cycle of anabolic steroids and your TGs were 800, then you might want to worry. Even the average person is probably walking around with your panel or worse into... (more)

Iodine + Carbs helped the majority of my thyroid symptoms after only 2 months. I am taking it very slow with the Iodine. I started 1 drop of Iosol in June, worked up to 2 drops after 3 weeks and then 3 drops. I am now on 1 pill of Iodoral. Since... (more)

Yah but your HDL is 20% higher on the VAP, and your LDL is 18 points lower as well on VAP. Your trigs are up 8 though, which is odd considering the change in HDL/LDL. Seems like it would be the opposite. But a difference of 54 to 62 in Trigs is... (more)
