Vascular Health Vs. Bloodwork
Have been reading the forum for a few weeks and while I noted many people have improved their bloodwork--eg improved triglycerides and cholesterol--has anyone had a PET scan or other test run to see their actual arterial health before and after embarking on the diet/eating plan?
There are a number of MDs recommending vegan, low fat and similar approaches that post the results of their patients along with objective pictures (PET scans, etc.) of improvement in arterial health. Severeal MDs have posted information regarding patients dropping their calcium scores by 14% or more in six months. Strict vegan MD Caldwell recently published a paper documenting either halting or reversing CVD in patients whole are compliant with his program.
All good stuff, for sure.
But, I can't find anything -- objective -- that aligns with the results these doctors, etc., have produced and published. Whether it is this group, Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, etc., etc., certainly excellent data on improvements in bloodwork but when getting off the standard US diet, one would expect improvements. However, what are the before/after results regarding the arteries?
