Your Small LDL-P number is a measure of the number of small LDL particles in your blood.

These particles are associated with an increased risk of heart disease; more of these small particles lead to greater risk. Your Small LDL particle score can vary widely, with a lower score being much better. People are generally at lower risk for heart disease if their Small LDL-P is less than 700. People are at the lowest risk when both your LDL-P number and your Small LDL-P number are low.

The Small LDL-P marker is usually part of the Lipoprotein Fractionation NMR test. The lipid panel is used, along with other test, during routine assessment to determine an individual’s risk of cardiovascular disease. A lipid panel can also be used to monitor the efficacy of lifestyle interventions or medications.
