Brief Answer:
Kindly upload the reports if possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

HDL is usually around 60. 222 is too high. So kindly upload reports to confirm the values.
LDL is high. Apo-b is somewhat high.

Since keto diet is low carb and high fat diet, I will expect it to derange your lipids further. If the fats get metabolised then lipids maynot derange.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
