Elevlated ldl and hdl
My brother had checked my HDL and LDL levels two months back. They were perfectly normal. But a lab test that was done yesterday shows elevated levels, higher than the normal range for the full lipid profile. Can this be due to incorrect fasting time or is it possible for levels to rise in 2 months. He has maintained a similar lifestyle. His APO B/APO A1 ratio is 1.1. All other things were perfectly normal.
