Okay I will. Thanks!

Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health by Gary Taubes. Ask your doctor if he's able to check for the "A" and "B" components in the LDL other than that you might be too concerned for little reason.
Also, since your mentioned your insulin levels are good have you ever had your A1C just to be sure that's ok
My LDL and my Cholesterol are both going up which concerns me. A and B? I need to Google along with A1C. Google is my friend.
