I've been doing paleo/primal since December 26, 2011. Prior to that I was vegetarian for 20+ yrs. Just had blood work done (3/10/12) and here's what came back:
Tot Cho - 252 LDL - 180 HDL - 57 Trig - 73
A year ago, when I was still veg, these were my numbers:
Tot Cho - 141 LDL - 90 HDL - 37 Trig - 70
I was surprised to see the huge difference. I have been pretty strict with my diet and been around 74-100 gr of carbs a day as I have no wt to lose (6'1", 157 lbs, <10% BF). I was especially intrigued by my LDL which came out as "extreme" on the chart from the test report.
Is this normal for the short time I've been on the diet? Anything to be concerned about here or should I just file the results and move on?
