Skyrocketing LDL-P and small particle LDL-p

Posted by tbellhappy @tbellhappy, Oct 5, 2021

Healthy 51 year old female whose LDL-P was VERY LOW at 600 5 years ago. Now is 1450? No changes to diet. Small particle LDL-P went from LOW at 250 to HIGH at 850. Same diet. No changes in exercise. Active 5 days a week with yoga, weights, aerobics. Something odd. Potassium also elevated. speaking with doctor, but trying to make sense of this.

I'm betting these algorithms (computer data extrapolations) used to predict "normal" are skewed !
