I had been somewhat following a low carb diet and gradually losing weight for 5 years, until I found I had a CAC score of 1257 in early October. I took a "crash course" in cardiology by reading "Heart Book" by Jeffrey Dach, "Undoctored" by Dr Davis, and "Eat Rich, Live Strong" by Ivor Cummins.

On Nov 1, 2020, I went full on with the Undoctored program and the Cardiac Protocol, including the Omega-3 EPA + DHA fish oil, Magnesium, Vitamin D and other supplements listed in the Undoctored and Undoctored Cardiac protocol. I also added some supplements based on studies listed in "Heart Book" that have helped people reduce CAC scores (see bottom of the spread sheet).

On Dec 2nd I got my first set of blood tests, and compiled them here along with some body measurements. Most of them look pretty good, but got some in the red zone. Can anyone tell me what I need to worry about, if anything? I’d appreciate any thoughts you have. 

Here is a legend:
B part of a Basic workup (e.g. annual physical)
C part of a Cardiac workup
M part of a Metabolic workup (metabolic syndrome through diabetes)
T part of a Thyroid workup
O Other program (Jeffry Dach + Eat Rich, Live Strong, Ivor Cumins)

Bob,
what makes you say ApoE4/2 is more concerning than 4/3?  I would think if anything, the opposite is true.  I do agree 4/4/ is more concerning.

Regarding Vit D, mjweb, consider raising intake by 2000 iu, up to 6000 iu. I weigh 150 pounds, and need 6000 iu for a serum Vit D of 75. But, yes, it does take several months for the Vit D level to stabilize.

All the best!
