    What happens with the healthy LDL that gets absorbed by the liver throught the LDL receptors? Wouldn't they just accumulate in a different place, or do they get broken down?

    I am full keto, lowered A1c, but I did further testing. My hdl is low, trigs moderate. Ratio is 3.6. And a fractionated lipid panel came back with Pattern B clearly noted. I also had high CRP. I am getting my insulin down slowly, staying extremely low carb, so I am not that worried. But based on this lecture, I still show high risk based on Pattern B. Is there a test that identifies oxidized LDL? The NMR panel I can get doesn’t seem to mention that as a result metric.

    So we are stuck with the bad LDL we have already attained through high carb but Statins only remove the good LDL. How do you remove the macrophages from the artery walls???

    FYI: carnivores eat large amounts of glucose. Glycogen is the polymeric form of glucose, and it's stored in liver and muscle. So, when you eat meats (=muscle) you consume all that glucose. Meats have a high glycemic load, as any diabetic can tell you.

    Thank you so much your videos are so well explained and well presented, and the information is incredibly valuable! Just the other day, I was literally eating grass-fed liver (vit A etc….heard it's one of the best things you can eat and so on) and my roommate walked in and told me "I'm really concerned about your cholesterol" and I just felt like that was crazy, but I wasn't sure precisely why. Thank you for explaining! I always like to go with the info that makes most sense, and it never made sense to me that there was "good" and "bad", but eating cholesterol didn't raise it, but you should avoid it anyways…But I never realized the connection between glucose and cholesterol until I watched your lectures, and that has really helped me start to understand the entire picture better. Thank you.

    Two recent cholesterol tests revealed my total lipids to be in the mid 700's where LDL in the mid 600's? This is after being on strict carnivore diet for 5 months and fasting over 12 hours prior to test. Is this crazy?

  17. Ben HC Posted on January 23, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    Ultimately just a different selection of surrogate markers. ApoB, ldl vs hdl vs trig, CRP, CAC scores… All of these are well and good but they aren't the outcomes that matter. Until there is compelling patient oriented outcome based evidence it is potentially risky to be overly confident in the significance of one surrogate vs another.

    Also regarding his patient, while I agree that looking solely at the lipid profile is fraught with error, I would also say that looking primarily at his body fat composition is also misleading. Ultramarathoners, for example, can have very very low body fat contents but can show fibrotic changes in their myocardium.

    Regarding statins I feel they are often over/misprescribed, but they have demonstrated significant impacts on meaningful outcomes for secondary and tertiary prevention. Their function is independent of their impact on ldl levels as they have plaque stabilizing and other impacts a d have been shown to reduce negative outcomes even in those with normal ldl levels.

    Long term patient oriented outcomes are what are needed.

    I say all of this as someone who practices LCHF and works as a physician. I want more/better evidence

    Interesting that you never see any lectures like this from the LFHC camp! Do they even do any proper research before spouting about how their diet is more healthy than LCHF. I have never seen an equivalent lecture from that camp showing the mechanisms of how their diet affects lipids, insulin etc. All we ever see is quotes from associative and epidemiological studies.

    He says statins increase the receptors but statins are said to inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol so that's a huge difference. The problem with these videos is there's no one knowledgeable reading and responding to the comments.

    Can't wrap my head around the last part about insulin increasing the LDL receptors. Did he say insulin levels will be raised as long as you're on high calorie diet? Even if those calories do not include carbs/sugar? That would be good. And let's say there's a lot of undamaged LDL in circulation (someone on keto diet), is there a problem? What happens to the "excess" LDL in circulation?

    Very interesting stuff! I'm only a bit over half way through watching but I have a question and was afraid I'd forget it. I did 30 day Carnivore lifestyle back in October to kind of start with a clean slate food wise. After that month, I slowly started added some keto type foods in so I could continue to eliminate foods that don't seem to agree with me but add back in some variety. (Sure is easier than eliminating one or two at a time.) My thyroid (integrative physician) is so super supportive of my choices for carnivore/keto which is rare in most doctors these days. That all being said, my question has to do with the CRP test vs the Hba1c test for heart disease risk. My CRP is ALWAYS off the charts high (current is 44.99mg/L with the range being 0.00-3.00) and it scares the hell out of me way more than the cholesterol numbers. This doctor in the video says that the HbA1c test is the better one for detecting heart disease risk. My lab value is 5.1% with a lab range of 4.8-5.6 which seems pretty darn good to me. My glucose is 72mg/dL with a lab range of 65-99. So why is my CRP so insanely high and how do I reduce it? Why is that test seemingly also so important to my doctor?

    So, I have an Agatston score of 237 (calcium in the arteries) however, I've been strict keto for 20 months. I assume the buildup in the arteries was from how I was eating prior to keto, and the fact that I WAS a diabetic (now have normal A1C levels). Can I also assume that continuing to eat keto will eliminate any FURTHER buildup in my arteries?

    Extremely valuable info. I watched this for the second time today and noticed the obvious:

    1) Healthy LDL do not cause atherosclerosis but oxidized LDL particles on the other hand do cause atherosclerosis
    2)LDL receptors are taking LDL particles out of the bloodstream, but only the Healthy LDL not the oxidized ones
    3) one of the mechanism of statin is to increase the LDL receptors
    4) More LDL receptors result in more Healthy LDL taken out of the bloodstream while the real cultprit (oxidized LDL) is left in the bloodstream to eventually cause damage and CVD.

    I cannot think of a biggest scam. This is disgusting.

    I was morbidly obese, developed type-2 diabetes and as a result had a cholesterol problem. I struggled with every other diet and exercise routine and nothing worked. I heard about the Ketogenic diet and decided to try it. After being on it for 3 months I had lost 68lbs and then started to add intermittent fasting to it. Fast forward a year I'm down 134lbs and I'm not longer type-2 diabetic requiring medication, my cholesterol problem has fixed itself while eating dietary fats in abundance and I feel great. I'm not fasting all week and eating only on weekends to accelerate weight loss. Never could I have done this without the Keto diet as the catalyst for it all. Dr. Berg, Dr. Jason Fung have excellent channels on the subject on YouTube.

    or condemned to stay B by inheritance ?

    Being keto for a year (0.4 to 0.8 keton), I'm baffled by my triglycerides.

    Trigly 1.84
    LDL 1.91

    If fasting stops the re-uptake of LDL, is the LDL used as fuel during fasting?

    HOW can the bad LDL be removed from the system if nothing takes it out other than the bad route of swelling under the epithelial calls of arteries and veins? Would fasting do it? Meaning they would be used as a source of fuel during autophage?

    If one is on a keto diet and has a piece of Nan’s birthday cake, because it’s Nan’s 90th birthday and Great Auntie Doris made that cake, will this cause the oxidation process or is a more prolonged exposure needed.

    Altogether a fantastic explanation of LDL, particles and atherosclerosis mechanism, together with good info on the importance of triglyceride/HDL ratio.
    Sadly, I am still struggling to understand why my CAC is pushing upward over the last 6 years (580 to 785) even though I am a naturally slim, fairly fit 65 year old with LOW Trig/HDL ratio, low BP, who discovered keto 5 years back and don't smoke or drink! BUT I have sporadic body-wide joint pain/inflammation (not a conventional arthritis), which may be relevant. I am coming to the conclusion it may be Omega 6 oils and am now going totally on a 'I only eat what I cook' regime, to see if that does anything.

    This helps explains why my LDL was over 200 when I got my blood work done and freaked out my doctor and suggested I take statin. I was already around my 16th hour of my fast that day (I do OMAD majority of the week). I didn’t hear it on the video but is the LDL elevated because your body is using mostly fat for energy thus requiring increased LDL carriers for transport? Ive been on keto and fasting for about 4 months.

    I've been keto for over a year. I had an LDL of 137, cholesterol 191, trigs of 98, HDLs 37. I ate high fat for three days and took the test. My LDL stayed almost the same, 134, but everything else when bad… triglycerides and cholesterol more than doubled, HDLs dropped by a third, my small LDLs went way into the thousands. Everything was shockingly bad. I ain't doing that again.

    at 22:20 Dr. Mason incorrectly states that a very high-fat diet for 3 to 4 days before a lipid panel the LDL will plummet. He meant to say a very high carb diet. But the lowering of LDL is not a good thing because it is only healthy, not damaged LDL that drops.

    Furthermore, Feldman has shown in his personal blood work that fasting must be between 12 to 14 hours or the triglycerides will elevate. Fasting either more or less than 12 to 14 hours will result in higher plasma triglycerides.

    The last few minutes didn't make sense: "if you have high LDL on a keto diet, it's been shown that being on a high fat diet for 3 days reduces LDL". – A keto diet IS a high fat diet.

    "If you have a high calorie diet your insulin goes up and LDL receptors both increase and increase in their affinity for LDL" – i think he meant to say a "high carbohydrate diet"

    [sic] A high fat diet and a low carb diet achieve the same thing because of the "strong insulin response" – surely insulin response is weaker under these two conditions.

    I thought that high fat and low carb-induced reduction of insulin and thus decreased LDL receptor (and LDL receptor affinity) would create higher blood LDL (which isn't bad because it's not glycated/oxidized). BUT he is telling us that LDL us goes down instead. So he obviously made at least one error in his speaking and leaves me wondering if LDL actually goes down under HFLC (which he seemed quite adamant about) and therefore asking WHY it goes down since receptor prevalence and affinity are reduced under HFLC. If receptor affinity and prevalence are not reduced under HFLC then why does LDL drop?

    If he meant to say at the beginning "high LDL on a high carb diet" then why should people on a high fat diet have high LDL (the subject of the talk). If he meant to say that LDL increases with a high fat diet the why did he say it fell?

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    I went keto in 2013, my LDL-P spiked & my Dr said I was going to die unless I took statins. 
    But I had Pattern A large & buoyant size, good C-reactive protein, good HbA1-c, and good inflammatory markers.
    I had a blood test NOT fasted and was made to do another one FASTED. The fasted LDL-P was higher and my Dr was confused af.

    I wish I was this smart. Then I could just go into a supermarket/farm and buy all the good stuff.

    So, will the sugar damage eventually be reversed, to a degree, once we've gone on ketogenic diets (particularly if autophagy is happening)? Or, do we just have to hope for the best?

    I'm from UK
    May triglyceride is 1.8 mmol/L HDL 2.16 mmpl/L so my ratio is 0.8 . My gp wants me to take medication to lower my LDL 6.9. mmol/L. What do you think ?

    My buddy was identified as having extremely high cholesterol and had been placed on meds. Seafoods are usually not on his diet program therefore a choice to move in this path is straightforward for him. Getting this cholesterol manual “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is the perfect choice for him. Weeks have went by and also the final results are all impressive, He have his cholesterol level to drop. This medicine does not give you a bad taste. .

    This was a great talk. Glucose damages the LDL particles but what about rancid oxidized fats like soybean oil? I wonder how rancid plant oils play a role…

    @dr mason here is a letter from my Doctor (below)after blood work on 8-9-19. What should I do here? Been on Keto and fasting OMAD strictly since March 14. Was at 260 now 190 = 70lbs lost. Need to loose 20 more pounds without a heart attack:-).

    From doctor:
    Labs show your cholesterol is extremely high worse then previous and most likely due to the keto diet you are doing. Stop this immediately and focus on a low carb and low fat diet. Your LDL levels are almost triple what they are supposed to be and your risk of heart disease is very high. If the levels do not decrease you will need to start medication. Recommend a repeat cholesterol check in 6 months. Please call to schedule a lab appointment please. Thanks

    My results
    Cholesterol 343 mg/dl (High) Range Reference =100 – 199

    Triglyceride 142 mg/dl (in range) Range Reference = 0 – 149

    HDL Cholesterol 40 mg/dl (in range) Range Reference = 40 – 150

    LDL Cholesterol 275 mg/dl (High) Range Reference = 0 – 99

    CHOL/HDL 8.6 mg/dl (High) Range Reference =0.0 – 5.0

    I have high LDL because of my diet…
    high LDL mixes with sugar and becomes toxic

    So the low carb diet makes it more dangerous for us to eat sugar?!?!?!?!?

    Thought Dr. Paul was an actual doctor, not a comedian. Marathon runners are extremely lean and they get heart attacks, what's your point doc. ?

    Swartzeneger had three heart surgeries due to high cholesterol. Tell me again how looking lean and muscular on the outside is an indicator of arterial health. FFS, you guys are killing people!! 🙄
