(Q) Cholesterol Total Up

Almost a year ago, I changed my diet from a very high carbohydrate diet to a low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet. Triglycerides, weight, C-reactive protein, Hb-A1C, blood pressure, and many other markers went way down. However, total cholesterol went up to over 400.

(A) Cholesterol going up can be because the size of the cholesterol particles increased and that is a very desirable thing. This should be measured via a VAP cholesterol test
