Now with 28 NMRs, Low Carb USA, and Upcoming Part IV

Greetings again, my friends! These past four weeks have been pretty packed and my next three weeks will be no different. That said, I’ve managed plug in a lot more NMRs due to the experiment I’ve been conducting which involved another week of successive blood draws, bringing the total to a whopping 28! In so doing, it appears the “diversion” I wondered about in Part III of the series appears to be a one-off. (See graphic below)

Tonight I’ll be flying to San Diego to attend the Low Carb USA conference this weekend. I’m excited to update a number of the doctors I’m typically connecting with over Twitter and email. I already have five meetings and am getting worried about my bandwidth impacting my lecture attendance. It’s gonna be busy!

I have completed a fairly involved experiment a couple weeks ago which I’ll be previewing at the conference to a number of people, and for which I’ll have posted here at the blog before August 8th (as Part IV of the series) to coincide with my discussing it on Jimmy Moore’s Living La Vita Low Carb Show. Needless to say, I’m extremely excited to share the results.

    Dave,
    It was great meeting you at Low Carb USA/Apoe4 meetings. I also enjoyed you on ZDogg. I have been doing keto for 2 yrs now. I told you I would send you my NMR results. I had them done after my Apoe 3/4 discovery in May. In my constant search for information I have also found that I am homozygous for the APOA2 gene. (GG)
    I really know nothing about this except everything I read says I should stay away from saturated fat. And that it effects the HDL. Anything you can share with me on this would be great.

    NMR: 5/27/17 (labcorp)

    LDL-P 1797
    LDL-C 146
    HDL-C 51
    Triglycerides 93

    Particle concentration & size
    HDL-P (total) 35.1
    small LDL-P 876
    LDL size 20.8

    LP IR 40

    Thank you so much for your research.

      Hi Renee–

      Your profile is unusual on LDL-P/small LDL-P ratio and quantity difference. This seems to be suggestive of coming from insulin resistance, which appears to be corroborated by the LP IR score of 40.

      For context:
      Are you on a low carb, high fat diet (LCHF)?
      What is your activity level?
      Are you on any medication?
