High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

I have two test-at-home cholesterol meters. One is from Lifestream and only measures total. The other is a newly acquired BioScanner 2000 and measures Total, HDL, and Trigs. With these readings, I can calculate LDL.

I have used the Lifestream for nearly a year with very good results. Today I did a side by side with my new BioScanner 2000 device.

The Lifestream can only read as low as 150 total. Today it read <150. The BioScanner read 125 for total. I then went on to do an HDL and Trigs. HDL was 43. My most recent lab work (two weeks ago) showed an HDL of the same 43, and Trigs was 113. This gives me a calculated LDL of 60.

My norm with no supplements or statin is around 240 total, 30 HDL and 168 ldl.

I take 20mg Zocor, 20 mg policosanol, fish oil, Citri-Cal, and olive oil whenever I use oil.

Just thought I'd weigh in on the new meter. I am pleased with its performance and it appears to be right on.
