TommyTurtle wrote:You wonder why Lp(a) testing is not part of the regular cholesterol panel test. It's not expensive and far more predictive than LDL / TC. Also doctors are reluctant to do CT scans. Also not expensive if considered from a preventative angle
Purely coincidental that big pharma make a motza by keeping the focus on LDL / TC and keeping statins as the #1 selling drug. They truly are concerned for our wellbeing and making money is just a happy by-product
