  • DH got VAP test results today, 3 years primal... thoughts?

    He wants my opinion on his test, since we self-ordered through AcessaLabs. I've been trying to find some good info on "how to lower" this or that, but gosh! It's hard to find info out there that isn't SAD/Modern medicine and obviously that's not what I'm interested in. If it were, we would just depend on what the docs tell us to do!

    Here are his results - snap shot form. Btw, he's been mostly primal for 3 years, dropped all his excess weight around the belly, is back to his 20 y/o weight and pant size (he's 45) and feels great. The exercise portion hasn't been incorporated (work-a-holic) but he and I will get there!

    Any thoughts? I think we shouldn't worry about any of the results, but does anyone have a suggestion for what we might tweak to better certain results, if we even need to...??

          Looks fine to me. You could always be healthier, but I don't see any cause for alarm.
          My opinions and some justification

            Was it a fasted test or not? Trigs look pretty high to me. Pattern A LDL looks great.

              He fasted 10 hours instead of 12
