Heart Disease is a Carbohydrate Problem by Michael Cummins, Sat 23 Dec '17

Heart Disease is a Carbohydrate Problem

"If you look at the advanced lipid tests - LDL-P, ApoB, and the size and density of the LDL—then heart disease becomes a carbohydrate problem. As long as you're focusing on LDL cholesterol as the culprit, then you can blame saturated fat."

Gary Taubes, in Cholesterol Clarity, page 114 by Jimmy Moore, Eric Westman, MD.

"Insulin resistance is important because it is the root cause of atherosclerosis. A random blood sugar level above 120, lots of small particles or Pattern B LDL cholesterol, remnant lipoproteins, elevated CRP levels, low GlycoMark, and A1c around 5.0–5.3 are the things that make me want to work up a patient more earnestly. You don't really need to do fancy advanced lipid testing; triglycerides, HDL, and non-HDL numbers are available on every standard lipid panel."



Dr Rocky Patel, in Cholesterol Clarity, page 118 by Jimmy Moore, Eric Westman, MD.
