Dave I live in San Diego and am a member of Low Carb USA. I am listening to the conference virtually. I qualify for the Lean Mass Hyperresponder study. I just sent an email to the study with my numbers. I can come over to the Wyndham to talk to you if you have time. I have had 3 major cancer surgeries this year, which is why I could not attend and sit in that conference room and be so exposed to potential risk. Since going low carb 5 years ago my LDL has gone from 104 to 247 current. I have high HDL and low Trig’s. My doctors are so concerned with my LDL and total C. I wanted to copy you on the email I sent but I do not have your email.

As I mentioned, I live here in San Diego. I have not heard from Dave. I would love to meet with him before he leaves about being in the Hyperresponder study. Has he received my message you said you would get to him?

Can you see my question to Dave posted 4 days ago, below? I wonder why he has not responded. Can you explain why I do not qualify?

Kudos to you, Dave and Siobhan. As the I Ching says “Perseverance furthers.” I’ve written to the study coordinator. Cheers! Paul

The ACC/AHA CV Risk Calculator is only valid for people between 40 and 79 year old in every website. Very sad 🙁

Dear Dave,
I sent an email to the Citizens Science Foundation, expressing interest in your and Dr. Lundquist’s study for the Lean Mass Hyperresponders.  They did say I qualify, except for the exclusion criteria of a history of malignancy within 5 years.  I do not understand why if I fit all the other criteria, that I would be excluded due to my Breast Cancer that is now behind me.  I had surgery, I have no further medical treatment required. I have been Keto for 5 years.  When I started my LDL was 104, it is now 247, which scares me and my doctors.  My HDL-C  was 94 and is now 103.  My Trigs are 62.  My CAC is 10.  I am 71 yo.  I am very interested in the study.  Can you explain why my malignancy disqualifies me?
I am so excited about the work you do.  I have been following you and have so appreciated hearing you speak at all the Low Carb conferences.  I am especially excited for the work you are doing with this study.
I hope to hear back from you.

Hello Dave,

Thank you for launching this study. I look forward to the results.

I have been following a Carnivore style diet for 2 years now and I have consistently high LDL. Prior to this eating style I was following a healthy ketogenic diet for about 5 months at which time I had already noticed my lipids creeping up. Having gotten many blood tests I cannot seem to pinpoint what may be causing my elevated lipids. All of my other blood markers are within “normal” range with the exception of what i believe to be two genetic abnormalities. Firstly, I have what is called Beta Thalassemia Trait aka. Beta Thalassemia Minor with associated “abnormal” blood markers and consistently lower platelet count. My question is can this form of Thalassemia have an effect on lipids while following a very low carb/no carb diet? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as my doctors concerns for my health seem to be growing. Thank you

BTW, I don’t seem to be eligible for this study.
LDL Beginning 40.3 – Current 117.7

Great news that you have launched the study. Can’t wait to see the results.

OTOH I find the  ACC/AHA CV Risk Calculator quite amusing. It doesn’t accept my real Total Cholesterol or HDL because they are too high. So I started playing around with the numbers and it quickly became apparent that at my age (70+) it prescribes statins in virtually all cases. (Had to input BP at unhealthy low levels with CHO at similarly unrealistic levels to get under 7.5%).
