    Those noodles are a killer.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

      Total Cholesterol 4.47 mmol/L 173 mg/dl

      HDL 2.01 mmol/L 77.7 mg/dl
      LDL 2.16 mmol/L 83.5 mg/dl

      Total/HDL 2.2
      Just read Griff's Cholesterol Primer again and because my triglicerides are below 100 the Friedewald equation is inaccurate.
      Using the Iranian equation my LDL results are even more Awesome LDL 1.74 mmol/l 67 mg/dl

        Hi guys can I have some advice.
        Been primal for exactly 2 years and here's my last 2 sets of blood test results. The second number is the latest results.
        TOTAL 144, 191
        Trig 105, 124
        HDL 46, 58
        LDL 85, 109

        After doin a little research on PB it seems that my Trigs could be a little high. What do you think? If so how would you drop them?

        Thanks for and help!

            BigDick1, your trigs might be a bit high. But they are not high enough to worry about in my opinion. Worry doesn't come in to play until its over 150. If you want to bring it down more, I would try adding in a long relaxing walk as often as your schedule allows.
