Hi Inezm1, I dont know much about this but I have this wonderful link to Lab Tests online which I am going to post here to you so that you can do some research on this for yourself.  Hopefully you can find what your looking for and also you will get some replies from a member or two who knows what this is about.  Please keep us posted.  Take care

Thanks again for your imput...and the web-site...and yes I am at UCSF..with Anne Thorson..very well respected) cardio doc.  but re: Lipo-protein a ...I had to ask her to check my level...it is not readily done..I am beginning to believe this is a relatively new area for the am. heart assn. to delve into..at least it appears that way to me...I believe this is in ones gene's and really should be closely studied...and yes I believe diet has much to do with ones healthy lifestyle..I shall pursue the book you mentioned...Inez M.
