I've had a terrible time getting my doctor to call me back regarding my results from my physical a month ago. The office lady was able to tell me my cholesterol number was 265
HDL:89 / LDL: 176. She said everything else was normal
I ordered a VAP test but she couldn't give me the results, only the doctor. I expect it to be light fluffy LDL as it was 2 years ago when I had a VAP test. Am I still in the good range according to my PAleo brothers and sisters?

I don't like it when they say "Everything else is normal". What does that mean???? What may be "normal" for someone eating SAD may not be what you're aiming for.
Your HDL is plenty high, so that suggests your trigs will be low and your ratios good. So probably nothing to worry about. But ask for a copy of the results, so you can decide for yourself. My HMO gives almost immediate access to lab results online--I really appreciate that.
