I am a 23 year old Male, 5'10 and 150 pounds. I recently had my cholesterol measured and was slightly surprised by my triglyceride levels as I eat a very healthy diet. My blood pressure has always been normal.
What is the meaning of these numbers in this context? I am aware that high Triglycerides/ Low HDL can mean insulin resistance and could also mean that ApoB is elevated even with low ldl. Does this warrant an ApoB or A1c measurement?
My doctor isn't concerned. I have a bit of a family history of heart disease so I would like to make sure I am covering my bases, especially since I am young and have time on my side.
