???? What readings are most important?
There is so much info out there now. I keep reading different theories/opinions on what is and what is not bad.
So what I can gather the two most important numbers are:
HDL/Cholesterol = You want it above 24%
Triglyceride/HDL = Ideal below 2
Well, my doctor has been doing the NMR lipid testing for over a year now and the number he goes by is the amount of LDL particles or LDL-P (as opposed to LDL-C in a traditional lipid profile). LDL-P should be under 1000; you can have a "normal" LDL-C result on a traditional test but your particles could still be too high which is what happened with my husband. His LDL-C was under 100 but his LDL-P was 1800 so the doctor got more aggressive with his meds. Problem is, a lot of doctors do not order NMR testing.
