Dave, great debate. After watching several of my patients successfully reverse their DMII with a ketogenic diet, I decided to take a stab at both dintermittent fasting and carb reduction to <30g daily myself. Just got back my lipid results after 1 month of ketosis and my LDL is 200. Prior, was 130. You mentioned a study for “lean mass hyper responders”. Not sure if I would qualify, but as a physician, would be interested in helping with the study in whatever way possible.

Hi a Lean Mass Hyper-responder is someone who has HDL of 80+, TG of 70 or below and LDL of 200 or above. So without further information it’s difficult to tell if you fit the profile or not. With that said, we’ve noticed from the data people have reported back to us that results from switching to a ketogenic or low carb diet aren’t typically representative until about 4+ months in – although we’re not doctors ourselves, and thus can’t give medical advice. The Lean Mass Hyper-responder follow-up study is via the Citizen Science Foundation, so any updates (e.g. on recruitment, qualifying conditions, etc) would be posted there, though I’m sure we’ll cross-post to CC as well. It’s helpful just to spread awareness of its existence to others who may be interested, although donations are helpful too and very much appreciated – but of course not required. 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
