So just a general question. I try to stay healthy for the most part, but I do love fast food. I've cut down fast food to the weekends, and typically eat a vegetarian + lean meats (like twice in the week) diet Monday to Friday and workout 4 days of the week. I came back from a blood test and my Triglycerides is 74, HDL 54, and LDL is 144 (doctor says it's close to high). I took the blood test on a Thursday, and being honest with my doctor, I told him I binged a lot more than usual the Fri-Sun prior to the test, and didn't exercise because I felt bummed that I have to take surgery soon. I guess I adopted the I don't care attitude after hearing that. He explained that cholesterol is affected later than other things like blood sugar and that might have been the culprit for why it was so high 4 days later. After the results I've been stressing the numbers and back on my exercise and healthy eating routine, but just wondering if this would make sense?

How long does bad LDL cholesterol stay in you system?

What does it mean if you have high LDL-P?

LDL-P stands for 'LDL-Particles' (as opposed to LDL-C which is LDL-Cholesterol). It's measured with a blood test commonly called "the particle test", and your LDL-P tells you the number of LDL particles in your blood. Usually LDL-P is measured along with LDL-C to obtain a more complete, detailed measure of cardiovascular risk - some doctors believe that particle levels as well as total cholesterol matter. Treatment strategies differ depending on the relationship between LDL-P and LDL-C, so there's not a 'cut and dried' target number for LDL-P (as there is for LDL-C).
