because it means that my growth rate over the last year and a half was only 5.7%, as opposed to the previous growth rate of 27%.

10/16/09  1589.7
04/18/08  1461.1
05/11/07  1166.4

What did it?  I really don’t know.  I can’t take statins or niacin, I still have high Lp(a), and a recent blood test shows high LDL-P and high % of small LDL.  But I did increase vitamin D levels from 20s to high 40s.

I’ve been taking: 
4000 IU vitamin D (recently increased to 6,000 IU)
3000 mg fish oil
flaxseed, oat bran, almonds

One other good thing.  When the heart hospital called with my results, I asked if they knew any board certified lipidologists or cardiologists who knew about and treated Lp(a).  She actually knew what I was talking about, said many of their doctors were using Berkeley tests now and gave me a couple of names.  

HOPE!
Linda

Yup, Lindy, that's 3000 EPA/DHA.  Have trouble digesting that much, so not sure about going up.

Thanks for the support!  You folks are the best.

Got a bottle of Carlson's today and will give it a try.  Here's hoping for fewer burps, belches, and bloating.

Just purchased a 16.9 fl. oz bottle of Carlson’s Very Finest Fish Oil for $45.59.  At that price, I expect it to cure everything!

Just remember to do divided doses.  Taking it once a day is less effective.
