Dr. Dicken Weatherby & Beth Ellen DiLuglio, MS, RDN, LDN

Welcome to episode 13 of "Optimal - The Podcast". In this episode of Optimal, join Dr. Dicken and Beth Ellen DiLugio as they dive into the NMR Lipoprofile test!

After a little discussion about real food, Dr. Dicken and Beth dive deep into the NMR Lipoprofile panel and uncover the small nuances doctors need to be aware of when ordering this important series of biomarkers. They go through what can be measured with the NMR Lipoprofile, and why it would be a good option to consider– while also comparing it to the Cardio IQ Report (Ion Mobility).

Don’t miss out on this episode as they share their findings on some biomarkers that initially had them scratching their heads; namely the key difference between the sdLDL and sdLDL-C biomarkers!
