Hello Dave, I am a keto/carnivore/omad programmer and I could help you with tools development if needed; feel free to contact me when needed 😉

Thank you for this tool. I wonder why my AIP is negative (-0.51). Is this a good thing?
TC: 344
HDL: 84
TG: 59

Jon
Guest
Jon

Ok, got it.
AIP = log(TG/HDL-C)
So it’s negative if HDL-C > TG.

Siobhan Huggins

Sorry for the late reply – and it looks like you already figured it out – but yes negative AIP is 1) not an error 2) lower risk

Just did 3 day protocol, lots of butter, heavy cream, etc. Everything got worse!
No coffee, fasted 14 hrs, etc.
Average before Tchol: 226. HDL: 44. Trig: 85 LDL 169.
Numbers after Feldman 3 day: Tchol: 223 HDL: 36 Trig: 119 LDL: 163
Usually LCHF, Bulletproof Coffee, but none during 3 days.
Drank isopure protein shakes with heavy cream and butter to increase fats?????

Hi – thanks for reporting back, even if it wasn’t the result you wanted! Hearing when it doesn’t result in lower LDL-C is just as important as hearing when it does.
Perhaps the liquid fats had something to do with it? Some people can have some trouble with that. If you ever want to try again, perhaps a more solid form of fat (like fatty cheese, or fatty meat) may work better? I would be curious to see if that is the case.
Regardless, thanks again for letting us know how it went!

Siobhan Huggins

You can include them if you post your results in the comments, if you want, but for the risk calculation the studies used are only taking into account the info it requests.

The Remnants are showing up in the text box but not as a pretty slider box with the others. Is that intentional?

Otherwise… thanks you so much for a simple way to look at these numbers.

Siobhan Huggins
Admin

It is intentional, because unfortunately we cannot find a study focusing on mortality prediction which uses *fasted* remnants. Because of this, it is likely not representative for low carbers, because their non-fasted remnants can be much different from high carbers due to the immediate fat trafficking after a meal. So, the information is still available for now, but is not highlighted.

Commenting here via DietDoctor website for your study. I am one of those who was already on a statin, already had artherosclerosis, and already had 5 stents before changes to my diet. My internist put me on the (not) ideal protein diet and my cholesterol numbers went way down. I ditched that for a keto diet and the numbers were still down last August, but shot way up this past February. Internist upped the dose of statin and I’m having painful side effects. (Tested: I stopped the statin a couple days ago to see if there was a connection and wouldn’t you know it? The pain stopped.) So now I’m wanting to assess my risk from high cholesterol with known heart disease versus risk and pain from statins. Can I be part of your study? (Not asking for medical advice, just seeking info on cholesterol and heart disease research)

Siobhan Huggins
Admin

There’s currently not a formal study ongoing, but if you’re looking for research on cholesterol and heart disease you may want to check out the Cholesterol Code facebook group, as a lot of research and discussion is posted there. 🙂

As far as your cholesterol goes, could you post your actual profile? Without the full numbers it’s difficult to comment on the risk, as it appears it can depend on the context.

Siobhan Huggins

Neither Dave or I can comment on whether you should take a statin or not, as we are not doctors, but I would encourage you to do your own research. Likely, because we don’t know everything, the best bet is to do what makes you most comfortable.

The insulin is something I would want to look further into it if it were me though, there is some evidence of insulin involvement in CVD etc.

Please see message ID: 22182

Nick

Siobhan Huggins
Admin

Hi Nick – apologies for the delay on this, I did give Dave a heads up but apparently didn’t reply! Remnant calculation was changed between the two versions, you are correct, so this would cause some discrepancy. However, this wasn’t fixed before release because the intention was to remove remnant calculation entirely as we don’t have fasted studies to go off of. This is pretty important for low carbers, due to the triglyceride carryover effect, and so due to that we’re putting it on the backburner unless we can find a study that goes off of *Fasted* remnants.
If you still want to keep it in your spreadsheet, you could make a formula that is “Total cholesterol – HDL – LDL-C calculated with friedewald formula” and that will return the same result as the old report tool.

Nick
Guest
Nick

Thanks for the clarification, Siobhan.

I still think something is not right. Let me ask the questionm this way:

The “Remnant cholesterol” is reported in both mg/dL and mmol/L

Is the mmol/l number calculated from the mg/dL value, or it is the result of a different calculation which factors in the trigs level??

I did an experiment plugging in two sets of numbers to the report tool. In both cases the numbers were identical EXCEPT the trigs.

The report tool reported the SAME “Remnant Cholesterol” number in mg/dL but the mmol/L one was many times higher!

Is it time for a complete update on the ‘Remnant cholesterol’ narrative? Becuause if it is so important as a metric, then people need to be sure that even rudimentary report tools such as yours are at least internally consistent…

Or alternatively, if there is a good reason why the mg/dL and mmol/L values are different in this way, it should at least be made explicit…?

Here are the numbers I plugged in and the results I got:

LOW TRIGS:

Total Cholesterol: 138 mg/dL 3.57 mmol/L
LDL Cholesterol: 41 mg/dL 1.06mmol/L
HDL Cholesterol: 88 mg/dL 2.28mmol/L
TG Cholesterol: 31 mg/dL 0.35mmol/L

Cholesterol Remnants: 9 mg/dL >>> 0.07 mmol/L >>> Very Low Risk

HIGHER TRIGS:

Total Cholesterol: 138 mg/dL 3.57 mmol/L
LDL Cholesterol: 41 mg/dL 1.06mmol/L
HDL Cholesterol: 88 mg/dL 2.28mmol/L
TG Cholesterol: 160 mg/dL 1.81mmol/L

Cholesterol Remnants: 9 mg/dL >>> 0.36 mmol/L >>> Low Risk

Nick

Siobhan Huggins
Admin

Hi – very good question! Because this is something that has to do with how the report tool is actually built, I’ve gone ahead and pinged Dave with this particular question. I’ll also ask him in person when I see him in a few days so we can make sure to get back to you on it.

Nick
Guest
Nick

Hi Siobhan

Any news on this?

Nick
Guest
Nick

OK now the report tool seems even more ‘broken’.

If you plug into it EXACTLY the same numbers I gave earlier (in post #22401, second set of figures ) it now gives remnant cholesterol of 0 – previously it was: 9 mg/dL:

Cholesterol Remnants: 0 mg/dL >>> 0 mmol/L >>> Medium Risk

Also it says “medium risk” even though the remnant is given as zero!!!

Does this need fixing??? – people are using this and relying on it for insight…

Thanks

Nick

Great tool – not worried about my results I did not know I was having a cholesterol test so it was done non – fasted and about an hour after I’d drunk a bullet proof coffee !!!!

However my test results had improved vastly on my one the previous year on diagnosis of T2 diabetes [now in remission] and again not done fasted but mid afternoon after breakfast and lunch and at that time I was following Atkins.

SO I’m prepped for my next test in Oct 19 it WILL be after a 12-14 hr water fast 😀

Siobhan Huggins

Excellent, I am glad you plan to re-test properly fasted, that’s what I would plan on as well! I’d definitely want to verify that’s what’s causing the higher trigs. It is always reassuring to know where to go next in order to troubleshoot. Looking forward to hearing how the properly fasted results turn up! 🙂

Hi – the triglycerides are a bit higher than I’d expect for a low carber. I wonder if it would be at the same level on a retest – if so, it’d be worth looking at this post.

Hi Dave, I am 71. I have been on LCHF diet for the past 18 months, and a “high responder”. I have just suffered a mild ischemic stroke on 22 June 2019. At 4:42am of 22 June 2019, when the stroke occurred, my fasted blood test showed the following results:
TC= 533 mg/dL
LDL= 392
HDl= 119
TG= 84
It appears in my case that too high TC may have obstruct the blood flow in fine brain capillaries?
I hope it can provide some useful feedbacks to other “high responders’ like me.
I am not a sportsman.

Regards,
KT

Siobhan Huggins

Thanks for posting, and sharing your story – we definitely want to hear both sides of things as far as people experiencing negative and positive results.
Regarding brain capillaries, I believe it is generally thought that LDL cannot make it past the blood brain barrier, although there is some research showing controlled uptake is possible. So, I’m not sure on that one. Regardless, I hope you are feeling well and are on the mend!

———OUR COMMENTS———

**This does not constitute medical advice**
• Your triglycerides of 55 mg/dL are typically considered optimal.

• We would consider your HDL of 87 mg/dL as strong.

• The combination of your LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides meet “Lean Mass Hyper-responder” cutpoints. This profile tends to have LDL cholesterol around 200 mg/dL or higher, HDL cholesterol around 80 mg/dL or higher, and triglycerides around 70 mg/dL or lower. Typically, LMHRs are lean and/or athletic and we propose a mechansitic reason to explain this. (For more on Lean Mass Hyper-responders, visit cholesterolcode.com/LMHR.) For a deeper explanation on our proposed mechanisms for this when powered by fat, see CholesterolCode.com/model.

This is my data for a recent non-fasting blood test. For a few days I was eating no protein, 1.5 lemons, and 12 oz of butter. I had the blood test less than 6 hours after my first 8 oz of butter.

No more butter for me, unfortunately.

Testing non-fasted (especially after a high fat meal) tends to result in values that are not necessarily representative in low carbers, we’ve found. See the post on the triglyceride carryover effect here.

Congrats on your weight loss! Hopefully it came with health gains as well. 🙂

I didn’t select a diet from the report tool, but I had been on Weight Watchers which sort of promotes a low carb diet implicitly in the points system they use. I had been at a high cholesterol of 294 mg/dl in 6/6/2018, but reduced down to 230 mg/dl by 12/31/2018 just by following a WW diet program.
It seems that in your report tool, I have nothing to be overly concerned.
I’m maintainng my wieght but have not had my blood checked since Dec 2018. I’m about due for another blood test since I have to have it tested for thyroid hormone levels annually.
I am about 5’8″, 145 lbs, cycle and walk regularly.

Hello,
I am a 62 y female, LCHF x 3 months, diagnosed diabetic x 4 months, no Statins, Metformin 500mg ER QD
Feb labs: TC 284, TG 140 non-fasting, HDL 49, LDL 212, HGA1C 11.1
June labs: TC 304, TG 89, HDL 45, LDL 241, HGBA1C 5.7 (15 hr water only fast)

I expected my LDL to increase, but not the HDL also. I have never been able to increase it. I suspect the cholesterol would have been worse if I had not been taking Metformin. Incidentally, about 5 years ago I tried a statin which elevated my liver enzymes to near 200, decreased my blood glucose to low 40’s (after 4t sugar and carbohydrate meal) and I became septic resulting in an 8 day hospitalization. My labs had been taken 1 week earlier which showed lowered cholesterol and no abnormal findings.

I will stop the 1T MCT and 1T butter in my coffee in case that is contributing. Any other suggestions, especially on how to increase the HDL?

Thank you for the blog and tool.

Hi – based on you saying you’ve never been able to increase HDL, I’m guessing it has always been around the same levels? I’ve experienced the same and have seen it in some others, where HDL slowly comes up over time (e.g. years) instead of shooting up all at once. It appears to be one of the slower moving markers at times.
What I did for myself was to try and get a better look at the context. E.g. I check fasting insulin, hs-CRP, and a few others to verify that although it isn’t high the overall context is indicating that inflammation is low and there is no metabolic syndrome (what usually results in lower HDL).
Mine has continued to increase over nearly three years of low carb, so perhaps you’ll also see the same?
Did you also test white blood cell count? That can help with context as well.

Here’s my results after 6 months of lazy keto.
I’ve got another test for next Wednesday and I plan on cutting out the coffee for 3 days before the test. I’ll post the results of that test.

I tried to keep everything as close as possible with the previous test except for coffee. Maybe a little more dairy. (found a great lime juice fat bomb recipe)
Might just go back to lots of coffee every morning!

Super fascinating! I’m off of statins (kind of obvious, maybe?), but I also don’t want to be back ON them. This is something I’ll be discussing with my doc VERY soon as these tests were just run.

———OUR COMMENTS———
**This does not constitute medical advice**

• Your triglycerides of 54 mg/dL are typically considered optimal.

• We would consider your HDL of 73 mg/dL as strong.

• We’d consider your LDL cholesterol as in range for what we’d call a “Standard Hyper-responder”. This is common for many going on a low carb diet. For more on hyper-responders, visit cholesterolcode.com/hyper-responder-faq. For a deeper explanation on our proposed mechanisms for this when powered by fat, see CholesterolCode.com/model.

Hi Dave! Im a 62 y/o female and I”ve been on a keto diet since January 6, 2019 and after six months checked my lipids at the doctors office 14 hours water fasted:
HDL 60, TG 145, LDL 245, Total 343! Dr wanted to put me on a statin but I saw several of your videos and decided to try giving up coffee. After two weeks of no coffee but drinking tea again 14 hours water fasted:
HDL 60, TG 75, LDL 223, total 297. Also HBA1C 4.7, fasting Insulin 4.3 CRP 1.26 and down 30 pounds. Thanks for all of the information you make available!
