Can someone explain the way cholesterol measurements are recorded now. Until 2 years or so ago you had : Total; HDL; ratio; LDL and triglycerides. Now you have Total; HDL; ratio; and se no HDL. This last measurement puzzles me and what does the 'se no' stand for? I understand it is LDL and trigs combined but am not sure and also no idea what the number should be in relation to the others.
2 years ago a cholesterol test was a fasting test, now it isn't. Is this for convenience?
