Please Critique My Lipid Panel
I just got the results of my first lipid panel after going Bulletproof/Primal/paleo/low-carb for a number of months now. I don't have any pre-diet change results to compare it to. I read extensively all the varying views and heard a lot of stories about how individuals' numbers changed in every direction. While I am not worried about my numbers (nor is my doctor) I'm not sure they are as stellar as I was hoping for - but I don't really have a good grasp on what is ideal.
Please, let me know what you think or link me to articles that lay some reasonable (non-conventional wisdom) ranges.
I am male, 29 years old. 6'2" and about 165 lbs.
My results as just appeared in my MyChart app are listed below (note, my doctor does consider â€œgood fatsâ€ saturated and monounsaturated â€“ he is anti-vegetable oils. Blood was taken after a 12 hour fast):
Comment from Doctor's office:
Your cholesterol is a bit up, but that would reflect a lot with the good cholesterol. I would suggest looking to eat the healthy fats only in diet. I would continue to focus on vegetables and fiber, and would continue excellent exercise practices!
