A Provocative Question About Cholesterol and Mortality

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)…

Hello Mr Feldman,

I am on a LCHF diet for about 4 months (first two on strict KETO) and these days I have made some blood tests and I was not very surprised when I saw elevated levels of total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and lowered triglycerides. The ratio between HDL and triglycerides looks fine. I have a lean body so I made the test for LMHR and it looks I am one of the hundreds of lucky persons who are hyper-responders. My questions are: should I do something to lower my LDL and total cholesterol or I am fine? How can I help you with your research regarding LMHR?
If you need I can send you my blood tests.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards

Hi – it’s difficult to comment without seeing the actual numbers. Could you post them? If you’d prefer you can post them in a separate comment and just add “PRIVATE” to the top of the post and we’ll make it so only site owners can see the post.
