I got the results back from the lipid panel. Although not great news, the values are pretty much the same as they were 2 years ago when I did the last test, and pretty much the same as they have been my entire life. This probably means that I could use a statin to lower the values, although diet probably does help somewhat. My HDL is pretty good. I am kosher, and somewhat vegetarian, so that helps to reduce saturated fat.
