What is the correlation between insulin resistance and lipid particle size. I have a low LDL particle number. Also my LDL c is low. But my particle size evaluation equated to a high lp - ir of 68 . Why wound this be...

I had my lipid NMR done. My doctor I could see did not know what she was looking at...par for the coarse I guess. I started doing my own eval. As I stated usually people with low particle count are not associated with apob b LDL elevation...which lead to insulin resist. I could try to use coconut oil with fasting etc.... But my LDL pis already low...how would this help.

I think the LP-IR score is computed from several different values, not just your LDL particle size. I'm pretty sure the correlation is negative though (lower particle size = higher LP-IR score) since smaller particle size is regarded as a negative marker of cardiovascular health.
