In the summer of 2006, I started eating an LCHF diet and since then I have continued to do so. I’ve eaten an LCHF diet for eight years, at times very strict, at other times less strict.
The wild rumors about how dangerous LCHF is long term, don’t get validated in my blood work.
To summarize, all problems associated with the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes usually improve on LCHF.
With these results in mind the fantasy talk about long-term risks with LCHF doesn’t seem to be valid,  at least not in my case.
I’ve kept my weight at a normal weight level effortlessly and without any calorie counting during these years.
Saying "CA caused by LDL" uses an impoverished and faulty definition of "caused." Poor writing is a touchstone of poor thinking. A swift kick in the nuts usually stops such silliness, but FrankG is a stubborn little tyke. If I wrote, "the bruising and swelling around your eye was caused by my fist hitting your face" what meaning would you apply to the "caused by"..? Reply to comment #106 by Nigel Kinbrum110murrayJuly 21 2014 2"CA is caused by LDL deposition" is your sentence, not mine.
The sentence does not say "LDL is a cause of CA." If you meant that, then that is a trivial observation. I generally have a lot of time to consider the viewpoints of engineers, who typically bring a problem-solving perspective in multi-cause phenomena that is generally lacking among scientists and physicians. For purposes of comparison, one might review the analysis of Ivor Cummins, a process control chemical engineer, who has also delved into the issue of cholesterol and coronary disease.
Another useful comparison is Peter Attia, who was educated as a mechanical engineer and offers a different analytic approach and perspective. This focus on LDL is just too much, and all this observational poppy-cock doesn't belong in the discussion of CVD.
So does this mean LCHF stresses the liver seeing that the AST and ALT are elevated (ALT is over the top limit)? As LDL-P ? LDL-C, Dharma's sky-high LDL-C is likely to give him high LDL-P, despite having larger LDL, which tends to lower LDL-P.
Reply to comment #130 by Nigel Kinbrum131erdokeJuly 25 2014I looked at the introduction and the start of the fifth paragraph actually prevented me from reading on. When you start a speech with trying to persuade the audince with a shameless big lie, than anything that follows is simply not credible.
Coming back to lipoproteins, it is very likely that if HDL is high (around or above 2) and triglycerides are low, LDL does not really matter.
6.The process of regulating cholesterol is very complex and multifaceted with multiple layers of control.
9.To be carried anywhere in our body, say from your liver to your coronary artery, they need to be carried by a special protein-wrapped transport vessel called a lipoprotein. 10.As these “ships” called lipoproteins leave the liver they undergo a process of maturation where they shed much of their triglyceride “cargo” in the form of free fatty acid, and doing so makes them smaller and richer in cholesterol. 11.Special proteins, apoproteins, play an important role in moving lipoproteins around the body and facilitating their interactions with other cells. 12.Cholesterol transport in plasma occurs in both directions, from the liver and small intestine towards the periphery and back to the liver and small intestine (the “gut”).
13.The major function of the apoB-containing particles is to traffic energy (triglycerides) to muscles and phospholipids to all cells.
14.All lipoproteins are part of the human lipid transportation system and work harmoniously together to efficiently traffic lipids. 15.The measurement of cholesterol has undergone a dramatic evolution over the past 70 years with technology at the heart of the advance. 16.Currently, most people in the United States (and the world for that matter) undergo a “standard” lipid panel, which only directly measures TC, TG, and HDL-C. 18.The most frequently used and guideline-recommended test that can count the number of LDL particles is either apolipoprotein B or LDL-P NMR, which is part of the NMR LipoProfile.
20.While inflammation plays a key role in this process, it’s the penetration of the endothelium and retention within the endothelium that drive the process. 21.The most common apoB containing lipoprotein in this process is certainly the LDL particle. 23.At first glance it would seem that patients with smaller LDL particles are at greater risk for atherosclerosis than patients with large LDL particles, all things equal. 25.With respect to laboratory medicine, two markers that have a high correlation with a given outcome are concordant – they equally predict the same outcome.
26.LDL-P (or apoB) is the best predictor of adverse cardiac events, which has been documented repeatedly in every major cardiovascular risk study.

28.There is no way of determining which individual patient may have discordant LDL-C and LDL-P without measuring both markers. 29.Discordance between LDL-C and LDL-P is even greater in populations with metabolic syndrome, including patients with diabetes.
32.Secondary to the total HDL-P, all things equal it seems smaller HDL particles are more protective than large ones. 33.As HDL-C levels rise, most often it is driven by a disproportionate rise in HDL size, not HDL-P.
This is what happens when one puts so much faith on surrogate markers and pretend to know about causes when you're actually speculating.
But its about a few people that dont handle saturated fat, fats and cholesterole in diet properly! There are many variables involved in BGLs (Blood Glucose Levels), but the biggest factor is the amount of carbs you eat. Carbs are converted to glucose in your body, so it makes sense that eating fewer of them will lower your BGLs.
You can also include your weight in the upper left corner and any special details (illness, etc.) in the upper right corner. First thing in the morning (before eating, showering, or moving around much), take your fasting BGL and record it in your journal. If your tummy doesn't like a big breakfast, a cup of unsweetened almond milk or an Atkins shake are also a good choice. Record the time, what you ate, and how many net carbs it contained (if you know) on the next line in your journal. 2 hours after breakfast (timing from your first bite), test your BGL and record it in your journal. 2 hours after your snack (if you had one), test your BGL and record the results in your journal. As you continue recording in your journal each day, examine your food choices and their effects on your BGL.
If you have been eating a lot of carbs, it may take a little time to get your BGLs under 100, but remove those foods from your diet that spike them higher than your goal. Gradually lower your goal until you are removing any food that causes your BGL to go over 100. Depending on where you are starting out, this may happen very quickly or take a couple of weeks or more.
Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) may happen, which may be severe and lead to death.
Your risk for getting low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is higher if you take BYETTA with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as a sulfonylurea or insulin.
Do not take BYETTA if you have had an allergic reaction to exenatide or any of the other ingredients in BYETTA.
Tell your healthcare provider if you have severe problems with your stomach, such as delayed emptying of your stomach (gastroparesis) or problems with digesting food. The most common side effects with BYETTA include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, feeling jittery, dizziness, headache, acid stomach, constipation, and weakness. Before using BYETTA, tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, as taking them with BYETTA may affect how each medicine works.
BYETTA is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar (glucose) control in adults with type 2 diabetes, when used with diet and exercise. BYETTA should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or people with diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition caused by very high blood sugar).

But as a 42-year old dad to a small child, with some sleep deprivation, and who regularly works 60-hour weeks, this is probably the time when health should start to fail. Obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high insulin levels and dangerously disturbed cholesterol numbers (high triglycerides and low HDL).
Scanning your website, which I encourage other readers here to view, the engineering approach is not readily apparent to me. The LDL is innocent--and revered--until proven guilty through RCT and only RCT (even then we'll have mountains of questions, so hah!). You're forgetting that postprandial triglycerides are elevated for long periods, on VLCVHF diets. Amylopectin & maltodextrin are both complex carbohydrates that have GI ~100, where glucose =100.

Anybody starting up this way is completely ridiculed and I'm not ready to listen to what else he tries to convince me about.
She is very good at making it simple for those not being experienced or at least familiar with working with huge amount of data. In any cases where LDL-P is very high, HDL and triglycerides are not in the green zone either. Cholesterol is “just” another fancy organic molecule in our body but with an interesting distinction: we eat it, we make it, we store it, and we excrete it – all in different amounts. Cholesterol exists in 2 forms – unesterified or “free” (UC) and esterified (CE) – and the form determines if we can absorb it or not, or store it or not (among other things).
As you are probably starting to appreciate, the trafficking pattern is highly complex and the lipoproteins constantly exchange their core and surface lipids. However, Lp(a) and apoB containing lipoproteins play a role also, especially in the insulin resistant person. However, when the two tests do not correlate with each other they are said to be discordant. It helps to put the carb count in parentheses to keep that number separate from your BGL numbers. Keeping your BGL under 100 at all times will drastically reduce your risk of developing diabetes complications. Also check out the Get Out and Stay Out of a Rut on Your Low Carb Lifestyle link on the left. Like all proteins, if BYETTA were taken by mouth, it would be digested, making it ineffective. Before taking BYETTA, tell your healthcare provider if you have had pancreatitis, stones in your gallbladder (gallstones), a history of alcoholism, or high blood triglyceride levels.
The dose of your sulfonylurea or insulin medicine may need to be lowered while you use BYETTA. Until we get an RCT, which will never happen, LDL remains an innocent bystander because we know it all so well. Considering the huge number of trials actually trying to prove this and also the much lower number of not biased trials, this is simply a blatant lie. The apoA-I containing particles traffic cholesterol to steroidogenic tissues, adipocytes (a storage organ for cholesterol ester) and ultimately back to the liver, gut, or steroidogenic tissue. Making this even more complex is that HDL functionality is likely as important, or even more important, than HDL-P, but no such tests exist to “measure” this. Stop taking BYETTA and call your healthcare provider right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe, and will not go away, occurs with or without vomiting or is felt going from your abdomen through to your back. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heart beat, sweating, and feeling jittery. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction include severe rash or itching, swelling of your face, lips, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing, feeling faint or dizzy and very rapid heartbeat.
Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heartbeat, sweating, and feeling jittery.
Call your healthcare provider right away if you have nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea that will not go away, or if you cannot take liquids by mouth.
It has nothing, for an absolute fact, to do with anything other than metabolic improvement after the last 50 years of conspiratorial abuse that we have suffered at the hands of the establishment. We'll only talk about LDL as an issue when we're selectively citing Taubes, or babbling on like an OCD patient about fluffy or dense particles, because cholesterol only matters when we're engaged in the mighty and righteous crusade against the status quo. The reason this occurs is that CE not only has to be de-esterified, but it competes for absorption with the vastly larger amounts of UC supplied by the biliary route. He claims statins to be effective drugs when they have failed to reduce mortality in almost every trial ever done and have failed to provide benefits in just about every population. If you have any symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, stop taking BYETTA and get medical help right away.
Otherwise, it doesn't matter, especially when low carbing -- then everything is certifiably good and we don't need RCT evidence for that claim.
Heathens must produce RCTs to be taken seriously in this sacred circle(-jerk), or we shall have nothing of such unworthy discussions engineered to sully the sacred LDL cholesterol.
Annoying us with facts and enquiries rather than the talk-points that we enjoy between ourselves.
