Default LDL subclasses

Total LDL-C 158 mg/dL (Berkeley Heart Lab LP Plus3 Test)
HDL-C 79 mg/dL

Triglycerides 41 mg/dL

Per the Iranian Formula the LDL - 118 mg/dL - MUCH BETTER

HOWEVER - the LDL subclasses are what's interesting

LDL IVb - 1.8% Ref Range 1.7% - 9.8%
LDL IVb goal - <= 5%
SO - This represents very low cardivascular risk

LDL IIIa + IIIb - 17.9 mg/dL Ref Range 12.0 - 32.1 mg/dL
Again - low risk

LDL IVb - 1.0 mg/dL Ref Range 1.5 - 11.2 mg/dL
Again - VERY LOW risk

So - total LDL-C doesn't mean much - BUT - they base giving statins on that number

Default Re: LDL subclasses

If the LDL-C of 158 is the result of a direct measurement, you cant use the Iranian eq. to get the lower number (118).

IIRC, the subclass breakout folllows the idea that LDL size is the key parameter to watch instead of total LDL-P.

The issue remains the same: Dayspring, et al say total LDL-P is what matters while others think its only the sdLDL.

LDL was calculated not direct measure
