    I'm no doctor nor am I an expert but since her VLDL is so low, and HDL high and triglycereide low she looks good to me. Maybe you should get a second opionion and/or talk to a specialist. It seems most doctors are not used to working with these kind of numbers because I've seen this a few times. Its very unusual for the standard american to have low tryglercides and high HDL...wonder why... hmmmmm

    Thanks I think the LDL was estimated not measured... not sure if that counts for anything but I've heard people say that before.........
