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).
