    Gary Taubes Blood work results

    Primal Fuel
    I ran across these results on Taubes' blog. I do not intend to lobby for his site, his books, or his way of thinking, but I would like to hear any opinons on the actual numbers and how healthy/unhealthy they are:

    I think Mr. Taubes needs more bandwidth...I'll try again as this link appears to work when it wants to:

    The links worked for me. Looks fine to me. He should've let Oz test him.

    Look at that CRP and glucose. Further confirming that Taubes doesn't know anything at all about inflammation or metabolic health. It is fools gold to look at blood lipids in a person on a low carbohydrate diet and try to extrapolate anything at all about his health, but CRP and glucose don't lie.

    I just mean his CRP is high, meaning excessive inflammation. That's all.

    A little off-topic, but could someone tell me the "name" of the test I should request that would return all the categories of the test referenced above? I'm going in for a physical next week and would like to get more than the "calculated" LDL numbers of the typical test. Thanks in advance

    There's a list of suggested tests and some basic info on what they mean in Robb Wolf's book.
