Just talked with my Doc's office manager to find out how I would go about getting the LipoScience LDL-P test done. She told me my Doc considers this test to be experimental and not reliable. I was a little surprised because he almost died of a heart attack himself several years ago even though he was very fit (big time cyclist) and had very low LDL-C. He was taking statins prior to his attack because he believed and apparently still believes that risk of CVD is directly related to LDL-C. In his mind you can never get LDL-C too low.
