Personalized cholesterol analysis

My wish for the ultimate health data analysis website

Is there a health website where I can enter all my cholesterol levels? Then the website would give me recommendations based on the various levels of HDL, LDL, and triglycerides.

Actually, it would be super great if this website would also have fields for a comprehensive chem panel with component results for:

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Chloride
  • Bicarbonate
  • Calcium
  • Albumin
  • Blood Urea Nitrogen
  • Creatinine
  • Glucose
  • Protein
  • Alt (Sgpt)
  • Alkaline Phosphatase
  • Ast (Sgot)
  • Bilirubin,Total

Numbers for each of these are provided with a standard blood draw at my doctor’s office. But wow, there’s lots of things to look at. How does one interpret all these results?

I randomly took the reading for bicarbonate, because the word “bicarbonate” looks kinda cool. It looks like carbonated soda. Does that mean I’m drinking too much soda? Actually, my bicarbonate levels are near the max, meaning my blood can’t balance the acid/base balance–because I have a potassium deficiency.

Looking at my potassium, it is indeed low. Who knew!?

I had to dig around on several health websites interpreting numbers to find this discovery. Imagine if there was a website that analyzed all the combinations of these numbers and gave insights.

Couple that with my genetic genome numbers from 23andme, and this service could give very personalized recommendations.
