I can't believe they don't do VLDL and particle size on a standard lipid panel. It's just stupid.
Here's what you can do to get it close. Add your HDL & LDL and subtract that number from total cholesterol. That will give you your remnant. The remnant is a constituent in VLDL. Also you can take your triglyceride number and divide by 5 to get VLDL. Both of these aren't exact but will give you a decent ballpark.
