Has anyone seen hdl as high as mine at 127 based on lab testing?

Most of the time if inflammation is low it's not indicative of a problem, though. It's a good thing.

Massive HDL can be indicative of problems, just like massive LDL, but the solution isn't to eat less saturated fat, it is the fix the problem. The lipoproteins are the firefighters putting out the fire.

That's pretty high -- might want to cut back on the saturated fat a bit... That said, here's a blog post where some people on a low carb diet discuss HDL values in that range: http://freetheanimal.com/2009/12/can-your-hdl-be-too-high.html

Paul Jaminet has had some interesting posts recently on HDL.

I wouldn't rely on that too much. Raising HDL has never been a proven strategy for preventing heart disease.

Mine came in at 147 last month. I understand that this number doesn't really tell much...what I need to know is the particle number or something like that. :)

Also, triglycerides are 43.

Yep, I probably eat way too much saturated fat, but no intention to stop. :)
