Interesting. I had no idea.
My results from the lab were 148 for ldl-c. The Friedewald formula calculation also gave me 148. I'm assuming the lab measured the ldl-c and didn't just use the formula to generate the number, but...
Nice! My ratios are also pretty stellar:
HDL/total cholesterol ratio = 0.38
triglyceride/HDL = 0.45
Interesting. The iranian formula gives me 109.9 ldl-c, at the low end of moderate.
LDL-C is basically useless. Ask your insurance if they cover an NMR Lipoprofile (cpt code 83704):

If your LDL is below 217 and your LDL pattern is A (i.e....
Mine was calculated without subtracting out the hdl. Odd that they were calculated differently.

They talk about this exact issue starting around the 35:40 mark. Paraphrasing Jimmy Moore: “Does it matter if...
Nice article! That makes me feel a bit better, as my CRP is very low at 0.2.
245/94 = 2.6, not 1.5 !?!?!
I've done some more research. According to both NMR (the company that performed the test) my LDL particle number (LDL-P) puts me at "high risk":
Btw, my C-reactive protein score was 0.2!!! Needless to say I was pretty pleased on that one.
I'm an 80/20 primal guy, with macro nutrient ratios about 60/20/20 for fat/carbs/protein. I have no idea about my genes (although heart disease runs in my family), but I'm eating right.
The number the doctor is worried about is LDL-Cholesterol at 148. She wants to see it below 129. I doubt she even knows what the pattern means, as she is mainstream and had just ordered a standard...
OK, I tried a different method to post my panels. Hopefully you can see them now. Sorry bout that:
Are you saying you can't see my attachments? They look fine to me.
I recently had an "NMR LipoProfile(R) test." Check it out:
I'm new to fermenting vegetables. I recently made my first batch of sauerkraut. The first few days, I was eating it cold (room temperature), and the taste was less than stellar. Then, on a whim I...
Good call on the 0g fat, Pete. That makes sense that there wouldn't be oil if it was at 0g.
Thanks for the tips on radiation, drumroll. I will definitely research that.
And yes, REH is the...
I'm trying to get some seaweed in my diet for iodine. All they have at the local grocery is the following:
Sushi Chef Toasted Seaweed Sheets - Nori 5.00 ct ShopRite
All that is listed under...

Oh I know. My wife, who's not paleo, does the shopping. I just went to cook some sweet potato fries from the freezer. They contain "food starch," which apparently "can be made from wheat, potato,...
Thanks for the heads up! I did a search and found this:
Amazon.com: Jarrow Formulas Optimal Plant Proteins, 19 oz (540 Grams): Health & Personal Care
Just ordered some.
Yeah, no kidding. If there is one thing I'm learning from this experiment it is READ LABELS. Holy cow, I have cauliflower in my freezer. I was about to eat some today, but read the label: ...
Do raisins have sugar? Under ingredients it lists one thing: raisins.
Another unexpected result: Yesterday I was pretty gassy all day long. I'm lactose intolerant, yet still normally have dairy daily. I thought reduced gas was one thing I could count on over these 3...
