Hi,

When we go for our bloodwork checkup, what should be the standard additional blood monitors be done for lipo sufferers ?
Would be nice if this was available on the site. Shall we make the list ?

Triglicerides
HDL cholestoral
LDL cholesterol
Lipids
??
??
??

newt:
EVERYONE should get a full blood fat panel, triglycerides, total cholesterol HDL, LDL

DEXA and MRI scans plus Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis are also useful for monitoring the ratio of bone (or for BIA water) muscle and fat, and can detect fat loss before it becomes visible.  MRI, tis expensive, others, much cheaper.
