I found out I have high lpa but an otherwise normal lipid profile. Is this a problem and what should be done?

Tg is used to estimate vldl, while ldl-c and hdl-c estimate LDL and HDL particle levels. Current nih and national lipid association (nla) recommendations are that all children between 9 and 11 years of age should have screening lipid testing performed. ...Read more

Perhaps High TG's: Patients with high triglyceride (tg's) levels often have increased levels of vldl with low or normal LDL levels. Tg's in vldl move into LDL and in return LDL sends cholesterol back into vldl. This same process happens with HDL cholesterol, depleting cholesterol from LDL and hdl, and thus lowering LDL and hdl, while vldl cholesterol increases. ...Read more
