This is my first post on this forum, or any other. However, after getting the results of my first heart scan, I’ve conceived a sudden urge to participate.
 
I am male, 54 years of age, and have a Lipoprotein (a) measured at 130… a cause for concern.
 
Average BP – 125/72
Cholesterol – 181
Trig – 41
HDL – 53
LDL – 120
CRP – 1.8
Homocysteine, Cardiovascular – 8.1
Total Testosterone – 641
Fasting glucose – 96
A1C – 5.2
 
T4 Free – 0.8 (low) – Have begun NatureThroid 1 grain/day
 
I regularly exercise.
 
As mentioned, I got my heart scan results, and then I got Good News/Bad News. 
My calcium score is 0.0.   
Wonderful!...    wait, what’s this?… 

Ascending aorta dilation, measured at 40mm.  Yikes!
 
There’s never been any indication that I might have Marfan’s, Loeys-Dietz, Ehlers-Danlos, or Turner syndrome. So, what gives?? I’m apparently 5mm away from being classified as having an aneurysm.
I’m having trouble figuring out what this is supposed to mean to me.

e0067847 - welcome!  You might get better results if you start a new topic just for your personal concerns.

In the meantime, thyroid, Lp(a) do look like concerns.  Have you had your Free T3 tested?  Have you checked your vitamin D?

One just starts a new forum for their individual concerns? I’m new to this type of thing. 

I figured my issues were minor, compared to many others’.
 
T3 – 2.9 (low normal)  (present levels not known, after starting thyroid meds)
 
Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy – 51  (upped supplementation to 10,000 IU/day)(present levels unknown)
 
Thanks for the reply.

LCL’s right - just start a new topic in the "Tell Us Your Story" section of the forum.  We’d love to hear you and you should get lots of response there, rather having it  buried here.  

It turns out our individual concerns and stories are very much all our concerns.  We learn so much from each other!

Lp(a) is certainly a concern for you, and is recurring topic on the forum -- many of us have high Lp(a). There are special reports on Lp(a) elsewhere on the website; it’s addressed as well in the Revised Track Your Plaque  book that is being made available to us on the website as it’s being written, as is thyroid. 

You can do a search on the website for these topics, as well as aortic aneuryism, to find other threads.

e0067847 -----As the dilation of your ascending aorta wasn’t caused by high blood pressure, we have to look at other possible causes.

LDL cholesterol : The higher your LDL cholesterol, the greater your risk for aortic dilation because LDL causes atherosclerotic plaque to grow and weaken the aortic wall.(Can  this be 100% non calcified plaque?) Aim for 60 mg/dL LDL cholesterol.
Inflammation:   Protein-digesting enzymes degrade supportive and structural tissues in the aortic wall which leads 
to weakening and expansion.Inflammation is lowered by fish oil,exercise, weight loss,Slo-Niacin,soy products and B vitamins.

The inflammatory proteins called matrix metalloproteinases(MMP) are responsible for increases in the diameter of
an aorta.Vitamin D is very effective in suppressing MMP activity.Flavonoids inhibit MMP’s.One can take pycnogenol pine bark extract,green tea extract,quercetin,mixed flavonoids and grapeseed extract.You can drink 1-2 glasses of red wine per day and eat blueberries and green vegetables.An optional additional step is taking 20mg doxycycline per day for 6 months to reduce MMP levels by up to 50%.


Moderator note 2022-06-22: date revised on as a side effect of getting this "UnKnown" TYP-vintage thread assigned to a suitable Inner Circle forum.

Lobelia and acupuncture and exercise for me.

I've no doubt that synthetic drugs would be worse than the nicotine.

Thanks for your well wishes.

I just finished doing that.  The theory is that the antibiotic kills all the bacteria and probiotic makes sure that you get back the good bacteria instead of bad bacteria.
