    Highest HDL around? Who has it?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm wondering if anybody has a 1:1 ratio of HDL to LDL, or better. My tested HDL is 93.7, and calculated LDL is 150. Total Cholesterol is 252, for perspective. I doubt I'm winning this one, so who's got me beat?!

    How's your CRP? Sometimes very high HDL can mean that you have a systemic infection. If high CRP then probably, if low then probably not. If not then that's pretty excellent.

    I'll see if they'll run a CRP for me soon. Thanks for the heads up! I sure haven't noticed any inflammatory symptoms, but the truth is in the numbers. Maybe I'm running a mild cold and have no idea.

    My HDL was 103, LDL 80 something. But I am a woman and read women tend to have higher HDL. I also looked around some because Iw as worried about it, and actually found quite a few primal folks with higher HDL numbers. I didn't get a CRP, but when you do request highly sensitive.

    My HDL is 80, LDL is 119, Trigs 50. My mom (in her 60's who is pretty fit but not paleo at all...eats very sensible though) has an HDL in the 120s.

    I only know my total cholesterol. It's 158. The blood form said they only measure the individual sections if it's over 190. I read somewhere that a total number doesn't mean anything but my Dr seems happy.

    When I read Primal Body, Primal Mind she suggested high HDL can be an indicator of inflammation, just like LDL. But my doctor did not seem to be concerned. The other important thing is particle size. Are your LDL type A, nice a fluffy; or are they type B, small and hard. Check your test. High HDL can be genetic as well.

    If you got additional testing done, look through it and see if anything else is off. Most of mine came back normal, with only one other indicator suggesting inflammation. But I know that personally my cortisol is high, and that is a big factor for inflammation. FWIW I have been strictly primal for a year. I have no idea what my numbers were prior to this, but I was eating a ton of whole grains daily!

    About a year ago when I tested HDL was 94, LDL was 101.

    About two years ago when I tested, it was over 1:1 when HDL was 77 and LDL was 72.

    I have no idea what size the LDL are. Trigs have always been low, think the last time it was in 30s. Oddly, since going primal both the HDL and LDL increased as I definitely started eating more primal from two years ago to the last checkup.
