My Lab Info

  • Total Cholesterol Before 28 Vegan Days: 190
  • Total Cholesterol After 28 Vegan Days: 167
  • LDL Before: 78

Here’s a quick recap about what all those mean.

LDL=BAD cholesterol. Ideally this would be less than 100. Lower is better.

HDL=GOOD cholesterol. Ideally this would be at least 40. Higher is better-it’s protective against heart disease.

VLDL= very low density lipids- They’re also a bad kind.

Total Cholesterol= HDl+LDL+VLDL
