I believe more and more in testing the remnants. Which can be done with simple blood test. There are many athletes and highly sportive people out there who get infarcts with no signs of elevated lipids. The remnants should always be checked because LDL HDL tot etc..... are not anymore the only main indicaters.
I would like an expertise to correct me if I´m wrong.
