Yes, I also think it isn't possible to separate. But I've asked Roche (Prof. von Eckardstein) - they measure nmol - and Ganzimmun - they measure g/l with nelometer - what they think about it. I'd like to see their answer :) and I'll report.

I got an answer from Prof. Eckardstein. He says, that nephelometry isn't per se problematic. The basic problem is the difficult standardization of lp(a) measurement. According to Prof. Eckardstein a good summary of this problem can be found at https://www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pubmed/26637278.
It appears to me, that I took up a very interesting (and important) question.

Today I had a telephone call with Prof. Scharnagl, Medical University Graz. He also said that the basic problem is the difficult standardization of lp(a) measurement. According to Prof. Scharnagl, it does not have to do with the separation of LDL. Lp(a) can be distinguished from this. The reason for the problem is the repetitive kringle structure of apo(a) protein.
OK. But now I don't know furthermore which of my lab values are correct.

Although from what you sent me - the nmol/l is probably accurate and thus elevated. And no matter, taking Lp(a) binding inhibitors is warranted, and over time, I suspect the Lp(a) will decline.

Thank you, Owen. I see that too. And I'll continue to report at the forum.
To provide complete information, the article from Prof. von Eckardstein: https://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/arti ... oprotein-a (I hope it's correct)
But take into consideration, it's school medicine.

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is
research!

Good advice! Thank you. I'll make sure when I check my value next time. I hope, I'll find a suitable lab in Germany.

It seems to me, that my post is of great interest. More than 6.000 klicks within 9 months. I hope, that it is helpful for you. Furthermore I'm sure, my lp(a) will decline with PT. And I'll report. But much more important, after my heart attack one year ago the damaged part of my heart muscle has begun to work again. No angina. No problems. And I'm fit. Every day 1 to 2 hours nordic walking, muscle training and riding a bike, although I'm 70 years old - sorry, young. And I learned, I can all if I believe it.

From the meeting with Dr. Rath in Sept. 2017 in Leimen/Germany I have taken with me the german version of the article about lp(a) and arteriosclerosis in transgenic mice. And I have read it again. It is very interesting. And it shows and proves, cholesterol isn't the culprit. With PT we are on the right way. I think, that you know the study from Dr. Rath. If not, here is the link to the orginal english version: ajcd.us/files/ajcd0007056.pdf
Otherwise, it is worth to read the study again.

Thank you. Another anecdote for our "collection" :D

As far as the connection between thyroid, LDL and Lp(a). It is my understanding that Lp(a) *IS* LDL cholesterol, but that a new surface has been attached to the lipoprotein, made up of apo(a) - thus Lp(a). The University of Chicago found, after Pauling died, that the apo(a) binds to LDL via proline binding sites. I am not chemist and do not pretend to be one on the Internet, but it seems the same logic Pauling used to increase lysine in the blood (knowing Lp(a) bindings sites are what sticks to collagen residues on the arteries) applies, and that increasing proline might interfere with the production of Lp(a) in the liver.

Another question: In addition to PT I take a number of nutrient capsules. Most of them contain magnesium stearate.
Does anyone know if magnesium stearate is harmful?
