Does taking Rapamycin help reduce a high LP(a)?

Does taking Rapamycin help reduce a high LP(a)? Also, I have recently heard that if your total cholesterol is below 200, you are at higher risk for dementia! Thoughts on either of these please?

I have never heard of Rapamycin lowering LPa, however it would be awesome if it does. I can more imagine it decreasing the inflammatory effect of LPa and thus decrease arterial inflammation / plaque formation.

I have not heard about the below 200 cholesterol increasing your risk of dementia. Several steps away from understanding dementia, I think of it more as a neurologic/ vascular issue with plaque formation being an end stage. @tongMD has an interest in this with I am sure more insight.

It has had no effect on LP(a) for me over 3 years at progressively increasing doses.
