In brief: Blood lipids

In the so called "vap" LDL is measured directly and not calculated from total cholesterol, HDL and triglycerides.
However, if your triglycerides are below 400, it does not add value. I would suggest that you stick to a usual fasting blood lipid profile and follow your doctor's advice.
