    Sorry but that was not a deep dive…harldy even a snorkel dive. Understanding a lipid profile is much more complex than the good/bad passe science most middle aged doctors still cling too. In reality a true lipid profile should give you several dozen markers for the various kinds of LDL and HDL – e.g., not all HDL is harmless and not all LDL molecules are harmful. Plaque is the real culprit and you can have very low cholesterol levels (which is dangerous) and yet have plaque buildup. Conversely, you can eat a high fat diet (fats from grass fat dairy and meats) and have very high cholesterol, over 300, while also have compeltely clear arteries. There are a number of formulae, most involving small molecule LDL, calcium, C-Reactive protein level, homocysteine level and triglycerides and pulse pressure (numeric difference between your systolic and diastolic pressure) that are far better indicators. But you’re correct about avoiding junk food – though you need to add sugar, the byproducts from high temperature cooking and grains to your list. Those are some of the substances that can cause glycation turning cholesterol to plaque.
