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...??
Can't see the results yet. Attachments take forever to be approved.

any thoughts or perspective?
Looks fine to me. You could always be healthier, but I don't see any cause for alarm.
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
