    so let me get this straight, your doc agrees that your numbers are actually good (especially your LDL is mostly A, and your VLDL-C is in the good range, which the genetic test did not foresee), and the doctor still wants you to change diet and go on a statin?! on what basis?!

    I wouldn't change a thing, your numbers are good, so why change it?
    Also the genetic test might say you are prone to higher VDLD-C levels, but your levels are actually good, so isn't that more important then what a genetic test might predict could be the case eventually (see the impreciseness here :-) )?

    sorry, i don't want to sound rude! i just don't see the problem here, and especially not why you should go on a statin (proven to only work for males over 65 with at least one heart attack prior, anyway)! If it ain't broke don't fix it!

    also, I guess the total numbers of your blood panel don't say a lot, what are your ratios?
