Apod Ive seen patients' basic lipid results change dramatically in two weeks. DrD says an LDL particle lives for five days. However insulin sensitivity takes longer to adjust.
I usually tell patients three months, but if you are impatient six weeks might be enough to track the cholesterol subfractions alone ( if insulin sensitivity is still resolving then TGs and the LDL carrying them will still be affected)
