I recently had my first in depth advanced lipid panel / Cardiometabolic Report done. It tested things like Lp-PLA2 Activity, ADMA, 11 dhTxB2/Creatinine, hs-CRP, along with the basic LDL, HDL, and other cholesterol tests. I haven’t seen my doctor to discuss my results yet, but a lot of my numbers were high. i’m a 22F. has anyone else has these advanced blood tests done? if so, what did they show and what resulted from them? As of now i’m not doing anything to treat my high cholesterol (270’s) and lipids (190’s)
Thanks!

    I also deal with high cholesterol, so before you will meet your doctor I can recommend reducing fatty foods and increasing your exercise. In fact, I've never done these advanced tests. Why did you do these tests? Just because you have high lipids?

    I did these advanced tests because I saw a lipidologist, otherwise known as a lipid specialist. He recommended doing the tests to get a better idea of what was going on. they can see a lot more than the basic lipid panel. My primary doctor referred me to a lipid specialist because i’m so young to have such high cholesterol and she wasn’t sure how to treat it so she wanted a 2nd opinion. I know lipid specialists aren’t very common and are hard to come by
