... Arizona did a great job of explaining it. It depends on how deep you really want to go, but basically, think of Apo A (mainly Apo A-I) as an alternative measure to HDL and Apo B-100 as an alternative to LDL. Really though, the Apo B-100 also is a primary protein component of VLDL, which are your triglyceride carriers. There are breakdown percentages of these Apolipoproteins... (9 replies)

... was ordered and also copied off the apolipoprotein B test spelling for this post to find out what it was. ... (9 replies)

... B is that they are carrier molecules for cholesterol. The Apo B is the carrier molecule for LDL, and the Apo A is the carrier molecule for the HDL. At least, that's my understanding of it. ... (9 replies)
... Hi Jacqueline: Lets see where to begin (the VAP is similar to an NMR lipoprofile): They have fractionated the HDL into two types, the non-beneficial dense HDL, and the buoyant beneficial form. Your total HDL is 55, of which 12 is the better form, 43 is the more dense form. I too started off with almost all my HDL as dense. Exercise and weight loss brought it such that... (9 replies)
... Ubernier I've been looking at your lipoprofile and trying to associate the results I got on my recent VAP test. There were a lot of subclasses on the second page of it that didn't mean much to me. Maybe you can make sense of them. Dense HDL 3d 10.9, 3c 12.0, 3b 5.8, 3a 14 Total 43 (less protective) Buoyant HDL 2a 8.2, 2b 1.2, 2c 2.3 Total 12 ... (9 replies)
... Beyond what I told you, I am not familiar with the test as your wrote it. ... (9 replies)
... I don't think anyone is familiar with the test as written. I have a friend who is a lab technician and runs tests. He said it was confusing and if he was running the tests, he would have to call the doctor. ... (9 replies)

... Any chance that U.S. HMO's will cover this testing, or would they likely be considered experimental with test costs falling on us experimentees? ... (20 replies)
... HDL ratio was 5.27. His last test in July after being off Lipitor for two months showed TC 301, HDL 47, TRI 227 and LDL 209. ... (18 replies)

... eagleheart, I'm in the same boat but with Lp(a) of 50...which I thought was super-high. I am getting a little luck with slo-niacin but I do only 500 mg./day. (with 20 mg. Lipitor) I think the risk of 2 grams niacin and 40 mg. Lipitor is too risky. If I were you, the FIRST thing I'd do is get a retest on the Lp(a)...If you have parents, ask them to test also because...

... Hi, could someone please make sense of these results? Thx! Cholesterol 4.02 2.00-5.19 mmol/L LDL Cholesterol 2.21 1.50-3.40 (0 replies)
... Ubernier, thanks, I appreciate that. I hope my doctor has a better grasp on this than I do. (9 replies)
... Thanks to both of you for the great explanations. I will have to mull them over for a while. Maybe more than I wanted to know, but it is becoming clearer. (9 replies)

High Lp(a)
Nov 20, 2004
... "I too have an elevated Lp(a) of 150, cholesterol 170, LDL 90, HDL 58." Are you sure your Lp(a) is 150? I don't see how that is possible. "Lipoprotein(a) is a modified form of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in which the glycoprotein apolipoprotein (a) is covalently linked to the apolipoprotein B (Apo B) moiety of LDL. Multiple Lp(a) isoforms exist due to... (5 replies)

... My father recently passed away, first bypass at 55, second at 62 and sudden death at 65. I have always tried to stay reasonably fit and my cholesterol is relatively normal. I take about 2 grams of fish oil, CoQ10, Vit C, Vit E--run daily along with weights. I decided to have a more in depth cholesterol profile with a cardiologist along with a coronary calcium screening... (2 replies)
