You should get a copy of the4 lab report so that you can see all of the items on it that was tested.

I believe that you got an NMR cholesterol test.

If so then this is the company that did the test. http://www.liposcience.com/nmr-lipoprofile-test/patients/understanding-your-test-results

Alhtough it might have been done through a different company that drew the blood such as LabCorp, Quest, or a local lab company.

There is some research that the number of particles that contain LDL cholesterol gives a more accurate risks assessment than total amount of cholesterol.

The total LDL cholesterol is a common an easier test. And for many person those with higher levels of cholesterol have higher numbers of cholesterol containing particles.

But that is not true in all cases.
