What about the Lp(a)? I've read some sources that say it should be below 10 and some sources that say it should be below 30. The sources that say below 30 point to the fact that the statistical inflection point in CVD risk occurs at or after 30.... (more)

Hello, paleohacks world! After many months lurking in the background, here I am with my first post. Male, 30 years old. I have been increasingly Paleo over the last 8 months. January was a "Whole 30" month. I wanted to see how things went so... (more)

Just got the results of the VAP I took on 11/2. I've been Paleo since about August. Before that, was eating a lot of whole grains (just b/c I think there may be some "clearing out" going on here) So, my LDL is high, but it's pattern A (I... (more)
I use a VAP and a GI fx test. @WCCPAUL Here are my detailed thoughts. Jack Kronk's VAP stimulated this response When most people get a VAP they think heart and lipid study. I do not. I use this test to assess levee 5. Most people in the paleo... (more)
I know this might seem a bit controversial but adding goat milk into my diet has helped a lot. I am not recommending it to anyone, it's just what has worked for me.
I posted some blood work numbers under another question, but at the time only had calculated LDL numbers. Turns out my Dr. did do a full VAP test, but only gave me basic totals over the phone. Since I'm generally new to Paleo (about 8 months) and... (more)

Interesting podcast with Chris Masterjohn: Episode 16 ??? Chris Masterjohn on cholesterol & heart disease (part 2) A part that caught my attention was the reliability of cholesterol particle size tests. Specifically the varying results... (more)
In some ways, it's more important that they are precise rather than accurate. If a VAP test can't be compared to a later VAP test, then we're in trouble. That being said, my VAP test agreed with my standard lipid panel almost exactly.
I just had blood tests run (through HealthCheckUSA - Labcorps). Here are my thyroid, VAP, and other results. I am 52, pre-menopausal (no symptoms at all), mostly paleo (absolutely no gluten, carbs around 100g per day, little to no junk),... (more)
