Wow, Patzer. Just, Wow.
My HDL is 39, so I can hardly conceive of how one gets to a 76 rating on this one. What on earth are you doing?

Oddly enough, the bad point was vitamin D. I'm currently on a supplement for 3 months, then we recheck.

My Vitamin D situation is a disaster. I first had it checked about 2-3 years ago when I started hearing more about the prevalence of deficiency from people. First time I got this checked, my level was 13. OUCH. No wonder I felt awful. I've been through about 4 cycles of hyperdosing D, retesting, then doing a daily supplement - with the daily supplement increasing every time. I've never managed to get my D to stay about 40 for any length of time. Last time I'd been on 10,000 IU of D3 per day for 7 months and the rating was 30. It's aggravating to be sure.
