Cholesterol: Its more complex than you think. Standard lipid panel is cheap only provides basic numbers but not lipogenic particles. This requires NMR test. It identifies lipogenic particles. There is concordance and discordance. Means numbers look good but lipogenic particles are bad. They are car and cholesterol is passenger. Too many on road- blocked artery. Ask dr. For diet and if can do nmr.No space detai.
