My doctor said my lipid panel blood test results looked good. Is that an indication that I am not eating to much saturated fat?

My doctor said my lipid panel blood test results looked good.  Is that an indication that I am not eating to much saturated fat?

Not necessarily but: Saturated fats can affect cholesterol levels, but about half of those who die from cardiovascular disease have "normal" lipid levels. Saturated fats may cause arterial damage independent of effects on lipid levels, but the degree to which saturated fats increase risk of heart disease is controversial.

What foods would you recommend eating a week before a lipid panel test to try to improve results?

What foods would you recommend eating a week before a lipid panel test to try to improve results?

Same as prior weeks: Getting lipid panel test results is not a game, so there is no goal of getting better numbers within a week's time. One should be eating the same type of diet for the whole month prior to the testing, so that the results will reflect reality. If one eats more healthily for one week prior to the test just to get a better score, she may get better numbers but it won't reflect her past diet. ...Read more

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
