    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.
