LDL Particle Size and Particle Number, What Gives?

Superiority of Calcium Score

Ron is a 72 year old retired engineer, and has a total cholesterol of 174 which hasn’t changed over the seven years we have been following him. This is quite low. Yet, Ron is concerned because his LDL particle number and LDL particle size are “outside of the lab range”. He is very worried about this and is concerned about his risk for future heart attack. I explained to Ron the lab range doesn’t apply to him. Ron’s Calcium Score is low, and his total cholesterol is 174, and he does not have metabolic syndrome or diabetes, so he doesn’t need to worry about the LDL particle size or particle number.
