    How to find LDL pattern A and B on a lipid test result?

    A buddy showed me his results from a VAP, but I didn't see anything about pattern A (good LDL) or pattern B (bad LDL).

    There's: HDL-P, small LDL-P, large VLDL-P, small LDL-P, large HDL-P, VLDL size (in nanometers), LDL size (nm), HDL size (nm).

    Pattern A = large LDL, pattern B = small LDL.

    That's just it: large LDL is not listed. There's large VLDL, is that it?

    LDL-P are the small density (Bad) LDL's. My last Lipid Panel showed a count of total LDL, and then a count of small LDL-P amount. I assumed the "good" amount of large LDLs was simply subtracting the LDL-P from the total LDL. However, I see in your example that they list small LDL-P twice. Is that a typo?

    No, sorry, it was from two different sections. All that's listed that's actually useful is:

    - large VLDL-P
    - small LDL-P
    - large HDL-P
    - VLDL size
    - LDL size
    - HDL size

    Doesn't seem too useful though, then again he only sent me page 1 of 2. Where are triglycerides? And are "large VLDL-P" the large, fluffy (good) LDL?

    Yeah, that's got to be the missing part. Demand page 2! Hahaha.
