New Report Tool in Development

I haven’t had a chance to write about Cholesterol Remnants or Atherogenic Index of Plasma, but I will at a future date. For now, I have a tool I’ve been writing and testing which will report those and other metrics for copy/paste use. You’ll find it on the new Report page.

Feel free to test it out yourself and copy/paste your report in the comments below.

I should also say I was coming off a sinus infection and meds when theses numbers were pulled. My LDL was 58 points higher than my last and my triglycerides were surprisingly high. Normally in the 80’s.

Just as an asterisk, all of my numbers aren’t strict LCHF. I’ve only become strict since Late-December 2017 and am curious how my future lipid panel results would turn out. Any tips Dave on how to get labs done without having to see my PCP?

Any chance you typed in the LDL incorrectly?

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.

It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.

Reading the link for Atherogenic Index … it says avoid saturated fat. This is wrong, sPTB4aturated fat is heart and brain healthy.

I have been low-carbing since July 2002. Trying to sort out a heart arrythmia problem, and fasting blood test was taken on Friday. Hauled in to the GP’s surgery because of the Total Cholesterol figure. They didn’t have a LDL figure because it couldn’t be generated apparently, so I’ve used the LDL calculator at the mdcalc.com site. Personally, I’m happy with the HDL and TG figures, and not bothered by the TC. But the health care assistant was freaking out. She calmed down a little when she went through a QRisk assessment, and my cardiovascular score was 3.7/10, which is… Read more »

There is a reason that Richard Morris would say TG/HDL less than 1 for Australia/Rest of World units and less than 2 for US units. With units of mmol/L Trig/HDL should be less than 1 because of conversion of units mmol/L to mg/dL. http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/High-density_lipoprotein_cholesterol.php2 http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/Triglycerides.php1 LDL has same conversion factor as HDL http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/Low-density_lipoprotein_cholesterol.php The conversion factor for trigs is about 88 and the conversion factor for HDL and LDL is about 38. It is the difference in molecular weight between triglycerides and cholesterol and the volume (dL v L). That roughly covers accounts for the difference of less than 2… Read more »

I have to throw my $0.02 in here. The bottom line with C Remnants and AIP is this: keep your triglycerides under 100.

Hi Dave. I’m confused about the AIP calculation. The website you link us to indicates my score is medium risk. Not lower third. Did I put the numbers in wrong?

Regina Peterson
Guest
I am so glad you are doing this. I have been low carb for years and my numbers are consistently around the same. I haven’t had my cholesteral tested recently so I would like to see if actually eating fat makes a difference. I have always been a little paranoid about eating fat and my numbers, so I would often cut down on fat right before testing. I may have been unknowingly just making them higher yes? I personally don’t care but don’t want any lectures or perscriptions trying to be pushed on me. Units of measurement:   mg/dL   mmol/L   … Read more »

Further to my initial message: My reference last night to the “error” message was that the tool initially said, for remnant cholesterol: “ERROR: this score cannot be negative. Please doublecheck your values.” As posted, it came through as “negative 9, high risk quintile.” This sent me down the rabbit hole, reading the Varbo, Nordestgaard study report and trying to figure out how I could possibly be in a high risk category. (I did see the one reference to high remnants/low trigs, smaller and easier entry into endothelial walls, etc., but I have none of the high remnant risk factors, so… Read more »

Here are my results, Dave. Been on Keto for about 2 years, and my docs have me really freaked out about my high LDL-C. They’ve been trying to get me to take statins for months, but I’d ideally want to know what’s causing the spike before I take medicine to treat it. We’ve already ruled out Familial Hypercholesterolemia, Hypothyroidism, and I have the ApoE3/E3 genes so that’s not an issue either. I tried to ask my physician (and the endocrinologist I was eventually referred to) about whether I’m a “hyper-sythensizer” in regards to insulin resistance, but they kind of just… Read more »

Dave, you might consider adding this LDL estimation formula to the Friedewald and Iranian, above.

http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1258/acb.2012.011259

Some relevant excerpts:

“The generally accepted formula (LDL-F) for estimating LDL-c developed by Friedewald and colleagues in 1972 using data from 448 individuals suffers from known inaccuracies at extremes of triglyceride (TG) and total cholesterol (TC) values.”

“The new simple formula 3/4 (TC – HDL) accurately estimates LDL-c while avoiding some of the limitations of currently published formulas, and presents an attractive alternative when direct quantification is not possible.”

Just got back my results. My doctor is generally not too concerned about my cholesterol, she is more interested in my blood glucose control as I have been diagnosed as a T2D. My A1c was 5.4 – up a bit as the 3 month period included Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years, the trifecta of crazy food parties. I have an appointment in a few weeks to go over it all. ==== CholesterolCode.com Report v0.8 ====– Total Cholesterol: 244 mg/dL 6.31 mmol/L LDL Cholesterol: 153 mg/dL 3.96 mmol/L HDL Cholesterol: 75 mg/dL 1.94 mmol/L Triglycerides: 81 mg/dL 0.91 mmol/L –CHOLESTEROL REMNANTS– Remnant Cholesterol: 16… Read more »

Hi Dave, just punched in the data. This actually represents a significant improvement on 6 months ago when I had Total 288, LDL 219, HDL 33, Triglycerides 182; what changed is I kicked the carbs and am on a paleo/keto diet now (and currently shedding excess fat). So hopefully over the coming year my lipid profile will continue to improve –==== CholesterolCode.com Report v0.8 ====– Total Cholesterol: 351 mg/dL 9.08 mmol/L LDL Cholesterol: 286 mg/dL 7.4 mmol/L HDL Cholesterol: 41 mg/dL 1.06 mmol/L Triglycerides: 122 mg/dL 1.38 mmol/L –CHOLESTEROL REMNANTS– Remnant Cholesterol: 24 mg/dL 0.62 mmol/L >>> Medium Risk Quintile… Read more »

-I still have a lot of research to do but my doctor urged me to stop keto. I’m a 34yo male, doing CrossFit 5x a week, and I lost 10 lbs in 3 months on keto. I love low carb and think it works well for me but just seeing these numbers has me a little afraid.

This is me on an LCHF. No matter what I do my HDL never seems to increase. I have years of test and I have never had HDL above 39 and have been as low as 8.

Dave,
I spotted this in your reports section on AIP. Please explain this item about Saturated Fats. It looks out of place on your site. Could it have been pulled up incorrectly in a former public advisory?…  

“Saturated Fats
Eliminating saturated fats from your diet will lower your atherogenic index and promote heart health when it’s part of an active lifestyle.” 

I really need your help on this! 

I’ve been eating everything on the list, beef, pork, lamb, dairy products, poultry fat, cheeses, etc.! 

Help! Am I eating the wrong fats? 
Regards,
Dave B
Full on keto 1y4m and counting!
