Thanks, VeeJay.

Since I know my clinic does not do those tests routinely, I think I'll have to figure out which test I want and find a diplomatic way to make sure they know how to interpret the results. Education time!

It is an expensive test and not all insurances policies will cover it. Mine did.

There are two LDL particle size tests. I had the VAP one run. (Don't remember what the other one is)
If the LDL particles become Type A, would the reading come down? Mine didn't budge .

Thank you so much. I hope I can keep it up. 5.6 is a tough act to follow for me. Hopefully, I can keep it the same.
