    I have been on KETO for three months , starting from Nov 2020
    I had a Lipid profile test last week. My LDL shown spiked from 3.05 mmol/L (on Sep 18 2020 , just before I start Keto) to 4.85 .
    As per cardiology standard, 4.85 is just below the very high risk category in terms Cholesterol issues
    My triglyceride went down from 1.62 to 1.16

    I have seen in few YouTube video about the spike of LDL in KETO . In the video , they explain that , for some people the LDL will spike on KETO, but its nothing to worry about

    Anyone has such an experience of LDL spike during KETO ?
    Anymore information about the LDK spike during KETO ?

    You'll find lots of info on LDL specifically and cholesterol generally on the thread I linked to below.


    Do you happen to have your HDL levels for both tests too as it's now considered that the Trig/HDL ratio is far more likely indicative of possible future problems than LDL levels.
