I was diagnosed in June 2005 with CAD when I had a TC of 205 and LDL of 143. Been on the Lipitor program since then. I actually asked the doctor for the Lip(a) test in January 2006 because a neighbor mentioned it to me; my doctor had to look it up, but said he would do it because lip(a) can be considered an independent risk factor for a heart attack and he wanted to put my mind at rest. Unfortunately, the Lip(a) result was not good in my case. I did not have the test prior to the diagnosis of heart disease, so I don't know what my reading was in June 2005, but given my so-so cholestorol/LDL readings then (certainly not indicative of moderate-severe heart disease), it probably wasn't good.
