Interesting. Thanks for the info. Let us know you do with it and what your doctor thinks of the results.

I just found another link with more info. It looks like most insurances will pay for this test, a good sign.

The reason I was looking is because my total cholesterol and LDL (not directly measured) are very high while my HDL is very high and my Triglycerides are very low. My doctor is not at all concerned but I wanted to confirm that my LDL is the harmless, fluffy type, not the dense, small type. I will get results later this week.

I found out about this test recently and wanted to pass on the information as soon as possible. This tests is likely to predict much better who is at increased risk of heart attack. I had it done and hope to get my results in a few days. Any doctor's office can do the blood draw, but make sure your insurance will cover the test.
