    Wish I had labs from back before 2017 shift to ketogenic diet. From keto to carnivore, I have seen 25% rise in total cholesterol. (lots of “warning” red in the lab results) 🙂

    1. Ah yes, I definitely wish I had more results from prior to keto as well. It’s an often heard musing, unfortunately. 🙂

    If not asked to be in a study, I’d like to be notified of ongoing results

    1. I imagine any updates to any project we’re doing, now or in the future, will be posted about here on cholesterolcode as soon as we have updates to share, so keep an eye out! 🙂

    Please add comments field at the end of the form

    1. Hi – if you have any comments to add feel free to leave them right here in the comments – the length of the survey needed to be kept short enough to make sure dropout rate was kept to a minimum (e.g. more people likely to complete it).

    I too am looking forward to the results. Our medical community has an online portal that keeps our test results back to 2012 available to look on. I am happy to give any information that I have.

      I would be curious to see that. Helps us understand this.

    Are you looking for LM hyper-responders only? I’m not that lean, but LDL quite high on LCHF/ZC.

    1. I would submit regardless. Or if not, you could always submit your data elsewhere on the site! It does sound interesting, in general. 🙂

    Cholesterol levels high and LDL high

    1. Hello, would you mind posting your actual numbers? It’s hard to comment without further context.
      E.g. what is your total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides?

    Hi, I am a 52 year female post menopause. My test results are very high and I’m scared out of my mind. Dr wants me on medication and fruits and veggies diet. I eat meat, eggs,and little veggies. I do not work out like I should but I am active. My cholesterol levels are HDL 88, LDL 447.2, Trig 124, ttl 560 (mg) do I need to be concerned with these numbers?

    1. Hi, although I’m not a doctor and can’t give medical advice, the higher than expected triglycerides are interesting considering the expected level of HDL. Was this test done 12-14 hours water-only fasted (no coffee, no tea, no caffeine, etc – water only)? If so, you may want to check out this post – non-fasted or improperly fasted tests can sometimes be wonky, so I’d want to be sure to get a properly fasted test so I could be sure I was looking at accurate information.
      If it was 12-14 hours water only fasted, I’d check out this post and see if anything sounds like a possibility.

    Hello,

    I am currently a graduate student studying nutrition and I am doing a research project on cholesterol and how it affects the hispanic population. I came across this survey and I think It would be very helpful for me to use in my research since it asks alot of questions that I an interesting in measuring myself. I was hoping if I could borrow your survey for educational purposes? If you could please let me know as soon as possible that would great. Or if you know of anywhere or somewhere where I can find something similar to this that would also be great!

    Thank you

    1. Hi, I’m not sure what you mean by borrowing the survey. Do you mean the results of the survey, or just using the same questions/structure for your own work? Let me know, and I’ll be sure to get a response from Dave for you ASAP.
