What type of inflammation markers does your Dr test for?
Inflammation has been shown to be as big a cause as, in fact bigger than, Cholesterol. My Dr uses hsCRP AND LPLA2. Both were low end of borderline, just above normal. But he also ran MPO, or myeloperoxidase, whixh came back off the charts, at 2600 and 2300 on retest. I posted about this once before, nobody seemed to know about it, and in fact even some of ten Drs I've spoken to didn't know much about MPO.

Wondering if anyone new here knows about it

heslop et al states that MPO causes a lesion that renders plaque to be unstable. also, you are double the risk for chd and mortality rates are being critically factured in. the enzyme is a defiency that is genetic. - so wiki tells me. the turtle did some research!!! ha!! and yes, it is being purported that testring these markers is becoming a good necessary factor.

thx prat. I learnt something. will try more.
