8 months ago I was 16st 5lbs, did little exercise and drank too much. I had an ankle brachial pressure index test for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and all was fine. Over the next 8 months I lost THIRTY pounds, exercised a lot more, stopped all bread, alcohol, biscuits and cakes.
I then had a repeat Ankle Brachial Pressure Index test for Peripheral Arterial Disease and I now have possible abnormal vessel hardening.
In July I had a PLAC ( Lp-PLA2) test and was 'borderline risk'.
I continued to lose weight (July i was 15stone) through diet and exercise.
In October I had another PLAC test and my risk had increased.
Just what am I doing wrong and what should I do next? (My GP had never heard of a PLAC test)
