    Just Recieved Blood Work

    Shop Now
    I am 46 year old female and have been mostly primal/paleo for about 8 months. We just finished a Whole30, so I went to the local lab and had my blood work done. My total cholesterol kind of shocked me, but I know that certainly doesn't tell the whole story. I don't know whether some of these things are good or not because I don't know either what they are or what a good score is. I would appreciate any comments, especially on the values relating to VLDL, Lp(a), IDL, and those Apo thingys. Thanks in advance.

    Direct-Measured Cholesterol Panel

    Total LDL 179
    LDL 4+3+2+1 147
    Lp(a) 13
    IDL 19

    Total HDL 76
    HDL2 23
    HDL3 52

    Total VLDL 19
    VLDL 1+2 6.7
    VLDL3 12

    Total Cholesterol 274

    Triglycerides 85
    LDL Density A

    Apo B 123 (I don't know what these are)
    Apo AI 186
    Apo B/AI ratio .66

    Hemoglobin A1c 5.1

    C-Reactive <0.10

    What did you eat the day before your test ? Last meal ?

    Pattern A = fluffy
    Your A1c = excellent
    HDL = excellent
    LDL = excellent (best 120-160 for strong immune system)
    Triglycerides = Best below 150 BUT...primal folks usually have this around 30-60. Below 70 is ALL fluffy pattern.
    Tri/HDL = excellent
    LDL/HDL ratio = excellent

    People with cholesterol above 220 live longer as long as you have Pattern A.
    Cholesterol acts as an Anti-oxidant...on top of MANY other functions.
