Cholesterol Test

My employer was offering discounted blood tests, so I decided to take advantage of the offer.  Below are the results.  This was after about 5 months of eating a low-carb, high fat diet.


Lipid Profile

  • Triglycerides: 45
  • Total Cholesterol: 140
  • HDL: 66
  • VLDL: 9
  • LDL: 65
  • Total/HDL ratio: 2.12
  • Triglycerides/HDL ratio: 0.65
  • LDL/HDL ratio: 0.98
I normally don't worry about my cholesterol levels.  I just wanted to show everybody that eating a high fat diet doesn't cause high cholesterol.
