... reactive protein and homocysteine. The VAP test will be much more accurate than a regular lipid test and show particle sizes. Due to your low triglycerides, you have an excellent chance of having large particle LDL, which is mostly harmless. ... (3 replies)
... keep swirling around my head. I feel like I'm waiting for the results of a biopsy or something. I guess my question is, is this test anywhere near as damning as I've built it up in my head to be? ... (12 replies)
... Today I got my VAP test result to read back, the doc didn't even know how to read it, as a matter of fact, he didn't even know it was in the file, and after he told me he wanted to send me for blood tests, he looked embarrassed when I told him they should be in the file already! I took the tests on October 22, 2007 and he didn't even read it before seeing me! When I was... (3 replies)
... So I've always had somewhat high cholesterol, but recently my results have given my doctor some pause as they have continued trending upward. He decided to do a VAP test a few weeks ago, but has been unable to provide me with a proper interpretation. ... (1 replies)

... I was wondering what the average ranges are for most people for some of the VAP test categories. For example, my HDL2 and HDL 3 numbers are 12 and 28 respectively. Apparently, this split is not that good. ... (18 replies)
... Glad to hear U got a decent report..Congrats. Hopefully your other tests will also come back as good. I really don't think a glucose of 101 is bad, or did they lower that too? My last one was 116. Keep up the good work, sounds like things are going ok.... :) (14 replies)
... week. None of the lab work was done at my doctor's office or through the lab they normally use. In fact, my doctor didn't even know where I should go to get the VAP test. I stopped by the lab she thought might do it, and even they had to call to find out who did it and what to draw for the test. ... (14 replies)

To me it looks like you have three areas to address with your treatment. Elevated LDL, Small particle LDL and Elevated Lp (a). The statin that your doctor is recommending will only address one of the issues the elevated LDL. With... (7 replies)
