This test was taken earlier this year, prior to my starting my ketogenic diet. I will report back soon with new results. I test using a CardioChek PA. In a month or two I’ll have a full panel VAP (Vertical Auto Profile) to make sure that my cholesterol is improving. There is a chance that it will go up temporarily. I will get this same test done several months later. A vast improvement should be seen once I am closer to my target weight (~185lbs). This is because large amounts of cholesterol are released into the blood during rapid weight loss.
