I am a 61-year-old female who had done Atkins back in 2002 and reached my lowest weight since college of 127 lbs at 5’4" tall. I then gained until reaching my heaviest weight of 166 lbs in late 2016. Found Dr. Davis’ books and began the Wheat Belly way of living in mid-March 2018 including the recommended supplementation. The only health issues I had prior to the program were mild arthritis in knees and wrist and piriformus pain due to broken bones or injuries from skiing and horseback riding accidents; plantar fasciitis in feet upon waking; mild adult acne; high total cholesterol and LDL numbers but good HDL and low triglycerides; snoring and December 2017-diagnosed sleep apnea. I rarely had been sick, slept soundly, and was taking no medications but an occasional Naprosyn for hip pain. My blood pressure has always been on the low side, with a few fainting incidents in high school years. Sample BP recently has been 95/56, 90/55, 85/54, with lowest recently of 78/58. Pulse ranges from 82-85.
 
Since starting Wheat Belly, the knee and wrist pain are gone, the plantar fasciitis has disappeared, the acne is no more, and I’ve stopped snoring. Still have the occasional hip pain and unsure yet whether the sleep apnea will resolve. I’ve only lost 25 lbs since beginning the program, so will be interested to see if thyroid issues, my low Vitamin D3 values or SIBO play a role in the slow weight loss. Absolutely love this way of eating with no cravings! Still working on developing better sleep habits; tend to be a night owl due to full-time caregiver role. Have also recently received my 23andMe Health results and will be reviewing posts to see how to have data interpreted.
 
Hoping that you all can help me to interpret my newest NMR and other lab results to better understand my cardiac risks or thyroid issues. My primary doctor is pushing statins big time and I’d like to make an informed decision as I would like to avoid taking statins if possible. My father, a former smoker, had a heart attack at age 49, underwent a quadruple bypass, was on statins since that time, and later developed congestive heart failure which was managed fairly well until his death at age 92 from cancer, we believe. He also was treated for hypothyroidism. His brothers and sisters had heart issues as well, and there is a history of some heart issues with my mother’s brothers and sister.
 
Following is a chart of labs over some time, although I’ve only recently had my first NMR lipoprofile on 04/12/18. Thank you for any insight you can provide. I will be seeing my Primary doctor on Wednesday, so would appreciate any recommendations for further testing needed. I plan on asking for a CAC, Lp(a), reverse T3 and reverse T4 (which she refused to order last time). Others?
