  • Full lab results + CIMT

    Thank youDr Brewer and this forum. I did the following lab tests and everything seemed reasonably ok. Then the CIMT shows my areterial age at 10 years more than my actual age. Good incentive to continue with the improved health program.

      Given the results you must have improved your health over the last few years. Hopefully over time you can continue to decrease your overall plaque burden and discrete plaques. Good news for your MACR and hs-CRP, especially on the hs-CRP given the pollution levels where you live.

        Tom,

        Thank you for the feedback. In 2013, I had crippling and undiagnosable joint pain. Could have been gout, rheumatoid arthritis or some other disease. Many doctors, in several countries, of various disciplines, with many tests were never able to conclusively diagnose the issue. In the end, I have developed what I think is an effective, evidence based, protocol of nutraceuticals that are effective for inflammation, so that may contribute to the good hs-CRP results. I will respond to rich below with what I have been doing.

      Your HDL and vitamin d can probably be easily fixed. For me, I would want both to be above 60. Exercise outside with as little clothing on as permissible!

      Estradiol is going to be harder, but you really need to get that under control.

      What was the other info from CIMT - what type pf plaque?

        rich,

        Thank you for the feedback. I added the second page of the CIMT, does that have the information you were looking for? Here is what I have been doing:

        1) Lost 40 lbs in the past 3 months - Will maintain this and gradually lose another 10 lbs
        2) Indole-3-Carbinol 200mg 2x/day - See if it impacts estradiol
        3) Vitamin D-3 25mcg 2x/day + increased sun exposure - To increase vitamin d
        4) Plant sterols / Phytosterols 400mg 2x/day - To lower LDL
        5) Increased activity (walking, vertical hang, rock climbing) - I know about HIT and am not onboard at this time
        6) OMAD (One meal a day) / Intermittent fasting - Regulate blood sugar and weight
        7) Dark chocolate - I have enough for 1 month of this. It is the most expensive item and not sure I will continue
        8) Reduced consumption of fat
        9) Increase consumption of salt - Though noticed a slight blood pressure spike, so took that down.

        Plan is to redo the blood work 4 months after the previous time. I know about niacin and statins and will probably give my current protocol at least 8 months before trying either of those. Do you think that is too conservative with a +10 year CIMT result?

      If you can, get a lab test for zonulin, which is an indicator of leaky gut. I'm starting to think that leaky gut may be one of the causes of atherosclerosis.
