Test ID: TLDLP
LDL Particle Concentration NMR, Plasma
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
TOTAL LDL PARTICLE CONCENTRATION
< or =15 years: not established
Adults (> or =16 years):
<1,000 nmol/L (optimal)
1,000-1,299 nmol/L (near or above optimal)
1,300-1,599 nmol/L (borderline high)
1,600-2,000 nmol/L (high)
>2,000 nmol/L (very high)
Interpretation of LDL lipoprotein concentration should be conducted within the context of standard lipid profile results (total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, calculated LDL cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol).
