New Report Tool in Development

I haven’t had a chance to write about Cholesterol Remnants or Atherogenic Index of Plasma, but I will at a future date. For now, I have a tool I’ve been writing and testing which will report those and other metrics for copy/paste use. You’ll find it on the new Report page.

Feel free to test it out yourself and copy/paste your report in the comments below.

I have just tested your new tool, this is the result (and the conversion between mmol/L and mg/dL seems to match, what I found on another website.

I haven’t read about cholesterol remnants yet – is that also what is called VLDL? Because I had that measured in my last blod test, and the number was 0.4, which matches the test result.

Just as an asterisk, all of my numbers aren’t strict LCHF. I’ve only become strict since Late-December 2017 and am curious how my future lipid panel results would turn out. Any tips Dave on how to get labs done without having to see my PCP?

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.

It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.

Reading the link for Atherogenic Index … it says avoid saturated fat. This is wrong, sPTB4aturated fat is heart and brain healthy.

I have been low-carbing since July 2002. Trying to sort out a heart arrythmia problem, and fasting blood test was taken on Friday. Hauled in to the GP’s surgery because of the Total Cholesterol figure. They didn’t have a LDL figure because it couldn’t be generated apparently, so I’ve used the LDL calculator at the mdcalc.com site. Personally, I’m happy with the HDL and TG figures, and not bothered by the TC. But the health care assistant was freaking out. She calmed down a little when she went through a QRisk assessment, and my cardiovascular score was 3.7/10, which is excellent, and it seems, not so often seen in the surgery.

I came across your very interesting looking site via the Protein Power/Mike Eades blog, as this has re-ignited my interest in cholesterol, and finally I have an appointment with a cardiologist early next week so need to gen up a little in case this comes up in the consultation. I will be watching the video about eating more fat for the next test in 6 months time.

There is a reason that Richard Morris would say TG/HDL less than 1 for Australia/Rest of World units and less than 2 for US units.

With units of mmol/L Trig/HDL should be less than 1 because of conversion of units mmol/L to mg/dL. http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/High-density_lipoprotein_cholesterol.php2

http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/Triglycerides.php1

LDL has same conversion factor as HDL
http://www.endmemo.com/medical/unitconvert/Low-density_lipoprotein_cholesterol.php

The conversion factor for trigs is about 88 and the conversion factor for HDL and LDL is about 38. It is the difference in molecular weight between triglycerides and cholesterol and the volume (dL v L). That roughly covers accounts for the difference of less than 2 for mg/dL to less than 1 for mmol/L for the Trig/HDL ratio.

I learned the hard way that it is only in the US that we use mg/dL. It is easier to convert to weight percent from mg/dL because dL contains 100 mL which is pretty much 100 grams. Can you tell I taught chemistry in one of my former lives?

Cholesterol: Molar mass: 386.65 g/mol

Triglyceride: Molecular Weight: 885.453 g/mol

Hi Dave

I think you would make a stellar presenter at The Quantified Self Symposium on Cardiovascular Health that will be held at Atkinson Hall at the University of California, San Diego in April 2018.

Here is the link for more info: http://qscvd.quantifiedself.com/.

Been following your work for a year now. Keep up the great work!

My doc is extremely concerned about my total C and LDL and making me re-do lipid panel in late January. I will be doing your 3.5 day Feldman protocol prior to this test as my PSMF “fasting” one back in October, my Total and LDL were still too high for my doc. Although she has no idea of this way of eating and wants me on statins which i refused. I will be much more informed for my next docs visit.

Also, have the APO-E3/E4 and PPAR gamma markers.

Thanks for all of your info and hard work! It is much appreciated.

Almost 8 Months Keto. Results are 2 days after a 4 days Eggfast (Egg, Butter, HWC, Mayo and Cheese).

It was my first lipid panel, I got a bit scared when I saw the big bold “Abnormal” sign next to my blood test online result. After one restless night of no sleep, I found this page/blog and I’m so glad I did! Thank you for all of your research on Keto and Cholesterol.

I’m being called into my GP office… I’m not sure what he will say, but I have a feeling it’s to discuss the below results:

I have to throw my $0.02 in here. The bottom line with C Remnants and AIP is this: keep your triglycerides under 100.

Now, exactly what kind of diet is known to do that?

Hi Dave. I’m confused about the AIP calculation. The website you link us to indicates my score is medium risk. Not lower third. Did I put the numbers in wrong?

I am so glad you are doing this. I have been low carb for years and my numbers are consistently around the same. I haven’t had my cholesteral tested recently so I would like to see if actually eating fat makes a difference. I have always been a little paranoid about eating fat and my numbers, so I would often cut down on fat right before testing. I may have been unknowingly just making them higher yes? I personally don’t care but don’t want any lectures or perscriptions trying to be pushed on me.

So I guess im most concerned with the chol to HDl 0.25 medium risk, hope this is not a bad #, seems like most are lowest risk third on AIP. Been LC 9 years now, have labs again in spring so hopeing to see about your last experiment and get some tips

Perhaps someone can elucidate the “error” message? I know my numbers are weird, but they’re real.

Naomi Norwood

Further to my initial message:

My reference last night to the “error” message was that the tool initially said, for remnant cholesterol: “ERROR: this score cannot be negative. Please doublecheck your values.”

As posted, it came through as “negative 9, high risk quintile.” This sent me down the rabbit hole, reading the Varbo, Nordestgaard study report and trying to figure out how I could possibly be in a high risk category. (I did see the one reference to high remnants/low trigs, smaller and easier entry into endothelial walls, etc., but I have none of the high remnant risk factors, so I remain confused.)

So then I put my nmr numbers (from the same blood sample) in the tool, just for fun, and they yielded a remnant number of 4, lowest risk quintile. Those numbers are TC: 156; LDL-C: 35; HDL-C: 117; TG: 21.

Please tell me I’ve revealed a glitch in the beta, rather than having just found a major problem I didn’t know I had. 🙂

Appreciate your work as always. I don’t know how you were able to stay on the strict eating plan that you did for your last experiment! My body would have absolutely freaked out. I also wonder how my mood which has improved 1000% on LCHF would have fared eating that much bread. I’m not as brave as you I’ll never put THAT to the test. Personal health I probably had Metabolic syndrome for decades. Eating LCHF over the past year has allowed me to not need BP meds, SSRI’s and I stopped statins on my own after taking them for decades. I feel better than I have in forever. Battle scar of prediabetes (now resolved) is CAC of 255 at age 57. My LDLc was kept low for decades at or under 100 with a statin. Not at all convinced the statin did anything to stop CAC score progression. I have only had the 1 test so far. I’m only mildly interested in my high Total LDL-p numbers virtually no smLDL-p. Could care less about LDL-c. I’m laser focused on BG control with my HOMA-IR improving from 1.39 to 0.96. Here are my lipids.

Thank you for responding, Dave. I know my numbers are unusual. I am happy to send you confirmation of my lab results, and I have lots of data points over the years.

1. I take no medications.
2. Primal since February 2013; VLCHF since August 2013, mostly in nutritional ketosis (BHB 1.5 ish, but I don’t test very much anymore); daily IF, 2 meals in roughly 7 hour window.
3. Not that I know of. My 91 year old mother has more normal lipids, as does my 29 year old daughter. (I am 64; 5’6″; 127 lbs.)

Lest you suspect the blood sample, here are some more.

Low-fat, primarily vegetarian:

2010 nmr: TC: 149; LDL-C: 43; HDL-C: 103; TG: 15

2012: TC: 125; LDL-C: 36; HDL-C: 86; TG: 14

Primal, LCHF:

2013: TC: 183; LDL-C: 35; HDL-C: 118; TG: 30

2016: TC: 152; LDL-C: 28; HDL-C: 133; TG: 19

2016 nmr: TC: 156; LDL-C: 35; HDL-C: 117; TG: 21

So would you concur that I don’t have a remnant problem? I’ve never tested for Lp(a); that’s next.

Here are my results, Dave. Been on Keto for about 2 years, and my docs have me really freaked out about my high LDL-C. They’ve been trying to get me to take statins for months, but I’d ideally want to know what’s causing the spike before I take medicine to treat it.

We’ve already ruled out Familial Hypercholesterolemia, Hypothyroidism, and I have the ApoE3/E3 genes so that’s not an issue either. I tried to ask my physician (and the endocrinologist I was eventually referred to) about whether I’m a “hyper-sythensizer” in regards to insulin resistance, but they kind of just ignored my inquiry (or they didn’t know what I was talking about).

They think I have something called Polygenic Hypercholesterolemia, as opposed to FH, but my 23andme results may be suggesting the contrary. In my research, I’ve found that there have been 37 SNPs identified by the Global Lipid Genetics Consortium (GLGC) as associated with raising LDL-C. Researchers have been using a genetic score (calculated from 12 of these SNPs) to determine whether or not it’s Polygenic Hypercholesterolemia. After calculating my own GLGC Weighted LDL-C genetic risk score, based on these SNPs, my score (0.891) more closely matches the results of the control groups — those who do not have familial or polygenic hypercholesterolemia. (Here’s the link to the study, if you’re curious to check it out: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(12)62127-8)

Anyway, I have no idea why my LDL-C is so high and I could really use your input. Should I just take the statins as my docs are recommending… or should I insist on confirming 100% whether or not I have Polygenic Hypercholesterolemia first?

Being a “Hyper-Sythensizer” would be the only other possible explanation that I’ve read about. However, it was really hard for me to understand BJJ Caveman’s notes on it. How would you recommend I rule being a “hyper-sythensizer” out?

Thanks so much for your hard work!
Justin

Also, in case it’s relevant, I live a very sedentary lifestyle and never really work out, so I don’t think I fall under the Lean Mass Hyper-Responder category, which seems to be for really athletic/fit people.

Hi, Dave,

We met at the Epigenix conference in february, and I heard you speak at KetoCon about your findings on Dietary cholesterol and blood test results, and they were fascinating. I’m scouring your site for a single report on this but I can’t find anything; do you happen to have a summary paper written up on what you’ve found, or some of your numbers?

I would love to share your results with a graduate professor of mine, who is teaching a course I’m taking entitled “Therapeutic Lifestyle to Combat Chronic Disease” here at the University of Miami, if that would be something that is okay with you.

Thanks in advance!

Dave, you might consider adding this LDL estimation formula to the Friedewald and Iranian, above.

http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1258/acb.2012.011259

Some relevant excerpts:

“The generally accepted formula (LDL-F) for estimating LDL-c developed by Friedewald and colleagues in 1972 using data from 448 individuals suffers from known inaccuracies at extremes of triglyceride (TG) and total cholesterol (TC) values.”

“The new simple formula 3/4 (TC – HDL) accurately estimates LDL-c while avoiding some of the limitations of currently published formulas, and presents an attractive alternative when direct quantification is not possible.”

Just got back my results. My doctor is generally not too concerned about my cholesterol, she is more interested in my blood glucose control as I have been diagnosed as a T2D. My A1c was 5.4 – up a bit as the 3 month period included Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years, the trifecta of crazy food parties. I have an appointment in a few weeks to go over it all.

Hi Dave, just punched in the data. This actually represents a significant improvement on 6 months ago when I had Total 288, LDL 219, HDL 33, Triglycerides 182; what changed is I kicked the carbs and am on a paleo/keto diet now (and currently shedding excess fat). So hopefully over the coming year my lipid profile will continue to improve

-I still have a lot of research to do but my doctor urged me to stop keto. I’m a 34yo male, doing CrossFit 5x a week, and I lost 10 lbs in 3 months on keto. I love low carb and think it works well for me but just seeing these numbers has me a little afraid. Also noting again that I still have a lot of info to go through on this site.

This is me on an LCHF. No matter what I do my HDL never seems to increase. I have years of test and I have never had HDL above 39 and have been as low as 8. Is there anything I can do or is a statin my only option?

I need your help!!

Dave,
I spotted this in your reports section on AIP. Please explain this item about Saturated Fats. It looks out of place on your site. Could it have been pulled up incorrectly in a former public advisory?…  

“Saturated Fats
Eliminating saturated fats from your diet will lower your atherogenic index and promote heart health when it’s part of an active lifestyle.” 

I really need your help on this! 

I’ve been eating everything on the list, beef, pork, lamb, dairy products, poultry fat, cheeses, etc.! 

Help! Am I eating the wrong fats? 
Regards,
Dave B
Full on keto 1y4m and counting!

Strict keto for 10 months at time of testing mid December 2017. Functional MD is highly concerned and wanted me to take red yeast rice. I declined. Will retest in May. Never had a prior NMR before, but lipid panel in 02/16 was:

TC 206
Triglycerides 49
LDL 138
Ratio 3.6
HDL 58.

He kind of made me fearful that I was at high risk of cardiac disease. I am not an athlete and barely work out at all. I am having a cardiac CT in the next few weeks.
