I’ve been lurking on TYP, Wheat Belly, and Undoctored for years and have been intermittently following the lifestyle. However, I haven’t stuck to it, and am now seeing the reality in hard numbers. Laziness doesn’t pay off. 

I’m a 37yo male, long standing history of elevated lipids, predominantly small particles, low HDL, high Trigs - typical metabolic disease symptoms. Elevated LP(a). TSH above 3.0 at last check. Always low CRP, HgA1C <5.0, fasting glucose ~80, etc. Recent labs pending.

Received a CAC Score of 7 today. No details yet on location of plaque distribution. 

CIMT was 530 Right and 580 Left, respectively. No visible plaque. Cardiologist did not provide reference range, but said I had mild thickening. 

I’m well-versed in what’s required of the lifestyle and plan to get back on the wagon now that the numbers are in my face.

That said, I had a Zero CAC Score in 2010, and my cardiologist was quite excited that there was only a 7-point increase in 10-years. His theory is that for the 1-year I was on statins, soft-plaque stabilized into calcified plaque as a result of the statin.

Given my CAC score, he is willing to let me try dietary/supplement approach before starting statins, despite not being a believer in a high fat, low carb diet. Obviously, I’m not thrilled to have any calcium present at my age. 

So fire away with thoughts. Much appreciated!
