I have read through this thread and see that knowledge of LDL-P is well researched. Just a note to anyone who may feel that LDL-P levels are not crucial to heart disease or possible heart attack, here is my story. My husband went through his normal physical testing which included testing of LDL an HDL along with LDL-P. His overall cholesterol was 199 however his LDL-P, small particles was 2097. This was left untreated by his cardiologist and 5 months later he died after a massive heart attack. We did not find out this numbers until we pulled medical records. Sadly we were not educated about these numbers. All I can say is pay attention and be your own health advocate. I always remind myself it is still the "practice of medicine".
