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
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!
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.
Cholesterol total 7.63 mmol/l
Triglycerides 0.61 mmol/l
HDL- cholesterol 2.12 mmol/l
LDL- cholesterol 4.7 mmol/l
VLDL – cholesterol 0.28 mmol/l
