... Very provoking, Mark. And I appreciate many of your viewpoints on the uneasy relationship between much of today's 'science' and its funding sources. I'm no fan of statins and I'll admit I am decidedly disenchanted with many aspects of my medical care. I will certainly be looking at work of the people you referenced. Like you, I have had a very positive experience on... (16 replies)
... How does saturated fat cause arteriosclerosis? That is a new one on me. It is not clear what causes the inflammation. One theory is that high insulin and cortisol levels are behind it. There are also numerous causes of oxidative stress that could be the culprits - smoke, pollution etc. If saturated fat caused inflammation and heart disease, the human race and carnivourous...

... Hi Rig, I'm very glad to hear an endorsement of this plan. My doc is very aware of just how sick I was on the statins so I feel she'll not push the dosing up or insist upon my taking it if I do have symptoms. I, too, am reading plenty of stuff that indicates this high hs-CRP is nothing to scoff at. It's got my attention and that's a fact. Thanks for the input and... (16 replies)
... Hello From what I have researched, hs-CRP is a strong risk factor and should be addressed. Also from my research I have learned that very low dose statins reduce the inflammation. This is done without visible impact or lowing of the LDL value. At this very low dose the risk of statin related problems are very low. My hs-CRP is very low and I practice this approach. I was...

... Hi Mark, Hi Red, I'm due to have a repeat echo this winter so I'll ask about a heart scan then. My cardio was not at all concerned with my cholesterol numbers and never asked about them or mentioned them. I only saw him when I suddenly went into severe arrythmia (20 to 30K PVCs per day) a few months post-surgery and post-cortisone treatments. Out of the workup done at... (16 replies)
... Heart Scan would be the way to go if you can get one (16 replies)
... CRP is an inflammation marker. It is only a problem if it is caused by inflammation of your artery linings and plaque is being laid down to fix it. It sounds like there could be other causes of the inflammation. How about having a heart scan done. You should be able to see what is happening to your arteries and whether you should be concerned. As far as the diet goes,... (16 replies)
... uggestion I would make would be to have your Vitamin D levels checked. Then supplement to get them to the upper limits. Vitamin d can have a direct impact on the CRP levels.

VAP test?
Sep 16, 2006
... WOW, Jane, That is appealing...I assume the lab won't charge TOO much for a blood draw. Of course it must be coordinated: whether centrifuged, refrigerated, cells blood removed from plasma, etc. etc. etc. Mailing blood seeems a bit problematical. Why not call Atherotek and ask them for the cheapest method and if they see any problem with the discounters? I found one... (11 replies)
