I’ve had 1 cardiologist and 2 lipidologists recommend a low dose statin which I don’t want to take. I eat a low carb, moderate fat/protein diet. Lots of vegetables. Pastured meats and eggs. No seed oils. Very little sugar aside from some low glycemic fruit. Supplementing with D3/K2, Ubiquinol, Red Yeast Rice, Aged garlic extract, Seed probiotics, 4-6 grams of DHA/EPA, quercetin,  curcumin, magnesium and NAD (liposomal). My CAC score is 2.6. Lp(a) was 150 nmol/l in January and is now 117. Anyone think a statin is advisable? Thank you.

DavidC2: You don’t need a statin.

Your results are great. Maybe some minor tweaking but that’s it.

Yes. I could lose some weight. Taking 5000iu Vit D per day. I dropped from 57-47 over the course of a few months. I ordered some zinc and sea kelp ( iodine) cause I suspected my thyroid numbers were a little off. Thanks for the reassurance and input!

Oh. No. No weight loss. I’ve gained some weight in the last 30 days.

I’ve been taking Thorne research brand Choleast red yeast rice. Apparently it’s monacolin content is 1/10th that of lovastatin.

David - you have large healthy buoyant LDL - don’t mess with it.
