Well yeah, because we are hyperabsorbers. But a caveat is that LDL is a poor predictor of CVD risk. This is a surrogate marker, not a real clinical outcome.
Not saying that saturated fat is necessarily good. The evidence is so murky.

It is extremely unlikely to be a significant factor in late onset AD. I'm curious - why did you think it was? What did you read that concerned you?

Re: RE: Re: How much protein to eat?

Hi Stavia. I went back and checked my actual numbers, as I’m certainly no longer trying to restrict protein...I’m averaging 1.4-1.5g/kg, much higher than at the start of my “journey” when 1g/kg seemed to be standard fare. Thanks again Susan, regaining body mass after illness, or indeed any setback ...

Re: RE: Mirena IUD contraception?

Hi I was wondering if any of the doctors on this site had a view on whether those at high risk of developing Alzheimer’s should be on the merina? Thanks Shine, in Mirena is used in the 50s and under. It is highly unlikely at that stage of life, with the very low dose of progestagin absorbed, that i...

Re: RE: Re: How much protein to eat?

Thanks Mike. I don’t have the luxury of risking 40 pounds, or even 4 pounds with a BMI around 19. Have decided that severe carb restriction is just too risky and as I never felt any better when I did achieve mild ketosis, it’s a low payoff strategy for me. I guess it just shows one recipe doesn’t w...

Re: RE: Re: Flu vaccines dangerous?

My reading indicates that the flu vaccine is not nearly as effective as keeping your vitamin D3 levels between the Bredesen recommended levels of 50 and 80. (Note that you cannot do this effectively without the blood test. Individual response to D3 supplementation is highly variable.) Read https://...

Re: RE: Re: Thyroid and Ferritin Questions

Thank you, Slacker. Yes, I've read the thread. But it left me without a clear sense of where Fe blood levels should be. I think I'm drawing the conclusion that there simply isn't enough known about the optimal level. Plumster my reading of the evidence is that a wide ferritin range is acceptable. I...

Re: Site Statistics

Hi Mike, we have discussed this over the years. The thing is (a) there are many different personalised approaches but mainly (b) we are all volunteers, many with fulltime day jobs, and it would be a huge amount of ongoing work to collect and curate the data. When we were tiny we could track our acti...
