In 2009 I had blood work done and was determined to be "pre diabetic". After following the ADA diet for 90 days with no improvement in lipids I started my own research and went Low Carb. I had done Atkins before and lost weight but got away from it and put the weight back on. I knew I was eating wrong and so I wanted the blood test. During this period after 2009 I also researched a lot and found the correlation between high blood sugar, triglycerides and heart disease etc.My father died of heart attack at 49. I also joined TYP and made a few posts but let my subscription expire. I recently rejoined and finally got the scan. So I am a 58 year old male and my score was 57 which puts me in the 50th percentile. The scan was done in Naples Fl and I believe was a 64 slice. I have been low carb since 2009 and find it easy to follow. I am very sensitive to carbs and check my blood so I know what I can and cannot eat. I need to lose a few pounds and do a little more exercise and I want to go the next step and get my blood work done. Where can I find a doctor that can order the tests and interpret my lipids and scan score. I don't want a doctor to tell me low fat and put me on statins. I'm pretty sure I can do it with diet and exercise and the proper supplements.So I am low to moderate risk but what I don't want is to get another scan in 18-24 months and find my score has increased to >100 or so.  Also here are my lipids before and after low carb:

                    08/09                                                                                                                  12/10

Glucose                                 131                                                                                                                    87

A1C                                         6.3                                                                                                                    5.5

C Reactive Protein                    NA                                                                                                                    .17

Triglycerides                          213                                                                                                                     93

HDL                                     45                                                                                                                         74

LDL                                      141                                                                                                                      153
 
Thanks to all  for any feed back.

Your crp is high too. Thus high lp-pla2 with high crp is a serious inflammation warning. Take it serious. Your dad die young

Also, free T3 is too low. Don't underestimate what it can do for your lipids.
