I posted this reply several months ago in which I share my blood test results. http://paleohacks.com/questions/25542/i-think-my-cholesterol-level-caused-a-heart-attack-for-my-doctor/25564#25564
I have been noticing on this site that my cholesterol is much higher than most folks on paleo. At what point should I start being concerned instead of brushing if off? My trigs are low, but does that really mean everything is all right?

You need to put your cholesterol numbers in perspective. Did you follow up w/a VAP test? It's not so much for the particle size as for some other risk factors. What are your inflmmation markers (CRP, ferritin, Il-6, etc.), liver enzymes, thyroid measures (TSH, T3/4), BG control (A1c), WBC, etc.? And what are your risk factors (smoking status, family history of CVD, other diseases, BP, whether your exercise, what kind of job you hold, stress, etc.) That's why someone has to get paid to do this job properly.
You can't ask these questions in a vacuum. I would be concerned but how concerned will depend the details you provide.
