How are you? I am trying to find LDL variable in SHHS_data-dictionary-0.20.0-variables. I can find HDL, Cholesterol, and Triglycerides, but not LDL.. Is it right that SHHS doesn't have LDL data?

Thank you for your help!

Hey - thanks for checking out the site! Unfortunately, you are right, we do not have LDL in SHHS. The lipid panel variables were "A variables", which means they weren't collected as part of the SHHS protocol, but rather requested from the parent cohorts separately (to be taken from separate research visits). Evidently, LDL was not in the "A variable" request list.
