I felt the urge to riff for 4.5 minutes on this topic and made it a video.
And for a few examples, see also my NHANES tweets here (taken from my risk presentation)…
A preview of my new slide for the upcoming talk this weekend #LowCarbSeattle. This is the lipid profile of the five living Centenarians from the NHANES dataset (1999-2015). NOTE: these lipid profiles were taken ~16 years *before* the follow up that confirmed they were still alive pic.twitter.com/kO8VOYiucQ— Dave Feldman (@DaveKeto) May 1, 2019
9/ Whatever adjustments are defensible and justified that would flip this trend to its reverse I’m certainly interested in knowing about. Again, and as always, I welcome productive discussion on this crucial topic. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/5D2GvRLn9l— Dave Feldman (@DaveKeto) April 28, 2019
LDL stratified vs mortality by year of follow up. 50 and up, no statins, HDL >= 50, TG <= 100, no consolidation (so less statistical significance at the tails). Pop avg for 50 and up mortality/year is 2.3%. pic.twitter.com/uWi0JZXezi— Dave Feldman (@DaveKeto) April 27, 2019
