Wow! That is a model of clarity, that lab report. Doesn’t look as though you have any problems, if I am grasping the gist. And when I posted about the CIMT I was just seconding what you had already said. CIMT is the official name (or one of them).
yes, I’m calling them today to see if their are photos of the ultra-sound
Not to be a pedantic asshole, but there’s an important little detail. Look at it from the other side. We all know that correlation does not prove causation, but there’s a really important detail here. Lack of correlation proves a lack of causation.
For the people who say LDL is bad and will kill, the “lack of correlation between higher LDL and better health outcomes (lower all-cause mortality and lower cardiovascular events), particularly in women over 50” completely disproves their theory.
Sorry. My inner statistics geek was poking me.
And an inverse correlation, also. So that if cardiovascular disease goes up when cholesterol goes down, then cholesterol level definitely does not cause cardiovascular disease.
