Have You Had The NMR LipoProfile Test Run On Your Cholesterol Yet?

Raleigh, NC-based LipoScience changing the way cholesterol is measured

It seems just about everyone these days is aware of cholesterol because of the relentless (and might I add nauseating) daily barrage of advertisements from the pharmaceutical companies pushing these cholesterol-lowering statin drugs like Lipitor, Crestor, and the like. The television commercials always show examples of patients who say their doctor told them their “high” cholesterol required that they start taking this little daily pill to “go lower” with their numbers. But why does everybody so easily buy into this very simplistic, conventional way of looking at cholesterol as the primary measuring stick for heart health risk?

The reason I’m bringing up this issue is because my wife Christine and I had the opportunity to visit a place located up the road from us in Raleigh, North Carolina called LipoScience. They are the first company to commercialize a laboratory test using state-of-the-art NMR spectroscopy systems as a detection method to determine blood cholesterol particle size and number called the NMR LipoProfile┬« test. I wrote extensively about this unique cholesterol test in the Introduction and Lesson #2 of my brand new book 21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: How The Healthy Low-Carb Lifestyle Changed Everything I Thought I Knew. This information is too vital for people to miss!
