Hi 

My post from last year got confounded/confused so I thought it would be best if I started afresh.

Quick summary, I joined the programme in June 2019 when I got a CAC heart scan with a score of 1860. I have been following the lifestyle and supplements since then and have had tests/analysis for thyroid, vitD, CRP, liver, fasting glucose and insulin and posted the results on my previous thread.

Here are my latest lipids blood work compared to my previous results back in September 2019. As I noted previously the lipids subfractions assay here in Australia is done using the gel electrophoresis - unfortunately we can’t/don’t have access to NMR.

September 2019                      July 2020

Trig - 0.8 mmol/L                  Trig - 0.7 mmol/L
HDL - 2.2 mmol/L                  HDL - 2.3 mmol/L  

VLDL - 0.59 mmol/L               VLDL - 0.44 mmol/L

IDL
Mid C - 0.64 mmol/L               Mid C - 0.79 mmol/L
Mid B - 0.26 mmol/L               Mid B - 0.37 mmol/L
Mid A - 0.35 mmol/L               Mid A - 0.45 mmol/L

LDL
LDL 1 - 1.62 mmol/L               LDL 1 - 1.59 mmol/L
LDL 2 - 1.58 mmol/L               LDL 2 - 1.30 mmol/L

Small Dense LDL
LDL 3 - 0.29 mmol/L               LDL 3 - 0.32 mmol/L
LDL 4 - Not Detected              LDL 4 - Not Detected
LDL 5 - Not Detected              LDL 5 - Not Detected
LDL 6 - Not Detected              LDL 6 - Not Detected
LDL 7 - Not Detected              LDL 7 - Not Detected

 Initial observation is that Trigs have decreased, HDL has increased, VLDL has decreased, IDL has increased, LDL has decreased and small dense LDL has increased.

My weight on joining the programme was 87Kg and has now stabilized at 74Kg.

I also rechecked my Vit D level which gone up from 97 to 187 nmol/L. I am on 5,000 units per day.

I have now checked my Lp(a) and it was 0.06 g/L (<0.30) (gel electrophoresis).

I also checked my HbA1c and it was 5.3%.

I’ve also had my ApoE tested and it was 3/4.

I have just received the aire device and will post my results is due course.

So questions:-
1. Can anyone help assist with the interpretation of the lipids subfraction results (gel electrophoresis) and if they are moving in the right direction.?

2. Does my Lp(a) result means that I should be on the higher fish oil dose of 6000mg ?

3. I’ve watched interviews and lectures from Dr Steven Gundry and also read that APOE4 people should reduced their saturated fat and cheese intake. What does the programme say to these suggestions ? What are the findings/outcomes for other members with this genetic profile?

4. Any thoughts on any of the above that needs further attention or am I missing some other aspect ?

5. I plan to have another CAC scan in Feb/March 2021 as this will be 2 years from my initial one. Is this inline with programme advice ?

Again, thank you so much for all and any comments, observations and advice.

HS-CRP is a good idea. Your Lp(a) was well within the lab range, so fish oil EPA+DHA 3600 mg.

Rodney D kindly shared an excellent video with Dr. Arthur Agatston you may also find helpful. Wish I could find this info in a written form so I could share with my doctor who ordered my scan.
