Why would cardiac markers be different over time?

According to Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis by Weatherby & Ferguson (2004), elevated blood lipids (cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides, ApoB) and low HDL may be implicated with

  • Adrenal cortical dysfunction / increased stress
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Early development of fatty liver/liver congestion, especially since he presents with elevated triglycerides, and historically lower HDL and high LDL
  • High intake of refined carbohydrates, atherosclerosis, fatty liver, and oxidative stress
  • Low HDL is associated with all of the above, in addition to
    • Oxidative stress
    • Heavy metals/chemical overload
    • Lack of exercise/sedentary lifestyle
    • Antihypertensive medications
    • Hyperthyroidism
  • C-reactive protein may have increased due to a number of factors, including obesity, insomnia, depression, lack of exercise, cigarette smoking, and diabetes.
  • Non-genetic factors that can contribute to elevated fasting-triglycerides are listed in Table 1 (below) by Keirns et al. (2021).
