      Glad to see this resurface, as not all of us have gotten good results:

      Right now I'm looking at fish oil and niacin, and considering the unhappy possibility that my genetics are more powerful than my diet...

          These are from before I was truly primal (no sugar, no grains, no legumes) but was eating a diet very high in saturated fat and animal protein:


          Total 156

          LDL 74

          HDL 71

          Trigs 54


          I've been fully primal for 5 months now and at next test I expect HDL will be higher and trigs lower.. and probably total higher as well, which would be a good thing considering all the health effects associated with TC under 160.

              This is after 2-3 months of PB


              Total : 252


              HDL : 42 (Is very low ..don't know why)

              LDL : 198 by Friedewald and 167 by Iranian equation

              Tri : 60


              What do you think guys? Any suggestions to improve HDL. Are the TriGly too high?

                No idea, those tests cost money.

                  Last time I had mine checked was about 3 years ago. Mine were:


                  HDL: 100

                  LDL: 47


                  My mom's side of the family has unusually high HDL counts.


                  Now that I've been primal for over 6 months, I will probably have it checked again.
