I just found out about this. Gotta love the word "fluffy" used in medical terminology!"The Heart Attack Culprit: Cholesterol Isn't to Blame" by Dr. Barry Searshttp://www.cbn.com/health/naturalhealth/drsears_heartattack...."So now you have good “bad” cholesterol (large, fluffy LD particles) and bad “bad” cholesterol (small, dense LDL). "And post #7104 from sheila727 mentions fluffy LDL w/r/t eggs.Yet another angle on healthy-heart risk factors -- two types of bad cholesterol. This article also mentions the importance of TG/HDL and AA/EPA ratios. And trainer at my gym mentioned that based on the type of blood test done, HDL and LDL levels might just be approximations based on the more accurate total cholesterol and triglyceride numbers.This investigation of mine is all around my basic blood test that I took this week (tot+HDL+LDL+TG), and a WellnessFX-run advanced test (http://youtu.be/gDybKKDYAXI) that I could take next week if I choose to.So which numbers/ratios are worth getting tested on and paying attention to?--Rod
