  • Help me read my blood test?

    Hi hi everyone

    I just got a full blood test done and I want to know how my cholesterol looks, my doctor didn't believe the results and said outright that he thought they were wrong because I 'couldn't possibly have such high results', everything else seemed normal he said. I'd like to know if it actually bad, or if I'm good to continue eating my 6 eggs a day!

    Cholesterol: 8.7 (Desirable range 0.0-5.5)
    Trig: 0.8 (Desirable range 0.-2.0)
    HDL Chol: 2.0 (Desirable range 0.9-2.2)
    LDL Chol: 6.3 (Desirable range <3.4)
    CHOL/HDLC: 4.3 (Desirable range <4.3)

    I know that cholesterol does not cause heart desease, and I know that CV has it all wrong. What I don't know is if I am in the clear or if there is anything I need to worry about. I've been primal for about 6 months.

    Any help deciphering would be appreciated!

    Oh, and my potassium was slightly high as well.

    Thanks in advance,

    Trigs and HDL are both good. You shouldn't believe everything you read on this board, but I ignore the other numbers, so I think you have no worries
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
