    Reading NMR Cholesterol test

    Shop Now
    Hi, I just had this test done after hearing recommendations on various podcasts, but am having difficulty reading the numbers correctly (non-CW, of course). Does anyone have a recommendation for a good website or blog that explains the particles count and size and how they are represented on an NMR test.

    You could ask Dr. Attia what he thinks by posting a comment in his Cholesterol - Straight Dope blog entry. He has answered one of my questions before. His site is probably the best I have read pertaining to cholesterol and he really encourages the use of NMR's.

    This is from the lab that does the testing:
