... 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)

Crp levels

... The lower the hs-CRP, the better off you are. The C-reactive protein is a measure of inflammation, and in this case, arterial inflammation. The normal first course for oral treatment is going to be daily aspirin. Since you already exercise, you are doing what you can to affect your other parameters in your lipid profile. Chances are that if you can get to a state of... (4 replies)
... My doc feels I can't overlook the significance of the high LDL and this CRP level. She thinks its a deadly combo no matter what is causing the inflammation. What do you think? ... (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...

... Ric, I would do what Jacqueline suggested and as far as supplements, perhaps try to take an aspirin in the evening before bed. Doing these (weight loss, exercise, aspirin) took my hs-CRP from 1.8 down to 0.11. However, by the first time I had my hs-CRP measured, I had already dropped 30 lbs and started exercising--no telling how high it had been before when I had my MI... (14 replies)

... 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)

... 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)
