"Dr. Dall discusses LDL, making the distinction between LDL-C and LDL-P (LDL Particle Concentration); and the NMR test to determine LDL-P ( http://www.liposcience.com ) LDL-P is a better predictor or heart disease. Your LDL-P "number" should be below 1000."
Such a good explanation as to why standard cholesterol tests preformed today are lacking.
