Default Cholesterol Survey on Dave Feldman's Cholesterolcode blog

FYI: Dave Feldman is conducting a simple cholesterol related survey on his blog site (see link below). He is asking for the cholesterol numbers from the last pre-diet lab work and numbers from your latest cholesterol results. If you have that info handy, it is a quick survey. He put the survey up a month ago and I just noticed it. So it may not be there for very much longer should you want to participate.

I put in my numbers. When I looked up the my lab work that met the criteria that he was asking for I was amazed to see that my Total cholesterol was the exact same number for both labs. Some of the other numbers were quite different, though.

LCHF/Keto since February 2014

March 2013 cholesterol numbers (eating SAD, weight 416 lbs):

TC:......207 mg/dL (5.4 mmol/L)
TG:......165 mg/dL (4.3 mmol/L)
LDL-C:.132 mg/dL (3.4 mmol/L)
HDL-C:..42 mg/dL (1.1 mmol/L)
VLDL:....33 mg/dL (0.9 mmol/L)
TG/HDL Ratio: 3.9

June 2018 cholesterol numbers (eating LCHF, weight 215 lbs):

TC:.......207 mg/dL (5.4 mmol/L)
TG:........ 47 mg/dL (1.2 mmol/L)
LDL-C:..119 mg/dL (3.1 mmol/L)
HDL-C:...79 mg/dL (2.0 mmol/L)
VLDL:.......9 mg/dL (0.2 mmol/L)
TG/HDL Ratio: 0.6

My Highest/Lowest LDL-C since going low carb (not asked for on the survey)

March 2015 cholesterol numbers (eating Keto < 20 net carbs, weight 287 lbs):

TC:.......314 mg/dL (8.1 mmol/L)
TG:........ 66 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L)
LDL-C:..248 mg/dL (6.4 mmol/L)
HDL-C:...53 mg/dL (1.4 mmol/L)
VLDL:.....13 mg/dL (0.3 mmol/L)
TG/HDL Ratio: 1.2

March 2017 cholesterol numbers (eating* LCHF 30-40 net carbs, weight 212 lbs):

TC:......166 mg/dL (4.3 mmol/L)
TG:....... 65 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L)
LDL-C:.. 57 mg/dL (1.5 mmol/L)
HDL-C:.. 96 mg/dL (2.5 mmol/L)
VLDL:.....13 mg/dL (0.3 mmol/L)
TG/HDL Ratio: 0.7

* Of note: on this March 2017 I borrowed ideas from the Feldman Protocol, eating a significant energy surplus in the days before the labs were taken - mostly from adding fat to what I was eating at the time. I also had an NMR done the same day as the standard lipid panel. It produced very similar results, confirming these numbers.

I've never taken cholesterol lowering drugs. Excluding the 2013/pre-diet lab numbers I was exercising daily (10K to 15K steps - mostly walking) year-round, including the weeks and months before each of these labs.
