1/ #ListenThread -

My guest appearance on #SigmaNutritionRadio just dropped where I have a very friendly #debate with @NutritionDanny and Alan Flanagan on #LDL #Cholesterol, #ApoB, #Atherosclerosis, #AllCauseMortality & much, much more!
2/ I did this podcast semi-sleep deprived and between interviews for #TheCCDoc. But I know my main hopes going in were to emphasize:

(1) Why I favor the "Lipid profile-centric" model over the "Lipoprotein-centric" model.
(2) How this is relevant to "the triad" ⬆️LDL⬆️HDL⬇️TG

(3) Why this triad is of particular interest to all of us as it relates to not just cardiovascular disease, but in particular -- all cause mortality (ACM)

I honestly couldn't remember how well I did in getting these core points across, thus relistening now...

1/9 Tweetorial Concepts of Na in #HeartFailure
👉Failing Heart prefers ketones
👉Ketones have osmotic diuretic effect
👉#Keto #LowCarb need to ⬆️ Na Intake
👉Same holds true for HF patients
👉Even more so due to diuretic effect of ketones, low carb,
and in insulin
2/9 @DrMarthaGulati shared #Interesting pics of on presentation of how Salt Restriction in worsened outcomes on HF. This struck many Cardiologists by surprise but this is not new

This is the link to her Tweet:

Some pics here.
3/9 Our colleagues in Europe have been doing this for quite some time with excellent results btw. Here are some references addressing this as well

I've got a few diabetic relatives,

Talking with them, I asked if their doctors had ever discussed low carb eating at all

They all said No, had no real understanding of what role excess carbohydrates intake had in their Type 2 diabetes

Mainstream medicine is grossly behind
The only dietary advice they've get is cut back on food intake, cut calories,

Eat lean proteins and low fat and healthy carb

Zero understanding of how insulin signaling works, no exposure to ideas like protein intake and satiety

Zero understanding of how muscle can help...
I could say these are personal failures on their part to not educate themselves,

But it is insane that its 2020, & overweight and obese people are being given 1985 advice that was bad then and bad now

Following #lowcarb twitter would help them more than their medical providers

In five days we begin filming #TheCCDoc -- a documentary on #Lipids, #HeartDisease, and the phenomenon of higher #LDL #Cholesterol observed in many following the #keto/#lchf lifestyle.

This will either be a single feature length documentary (90-120m) or a series of topic episodes (40-55m each)

I'll be interviewing experts across the opinion spectrum. Pro lipid hypothesis, moderate, skeptic, liberal on statins vs conservative, etc.

We'll explore:
1. History of cholesterol discovery
2. The #LowCarb movement and high "diet induced" #LDL
3. The science and data of risk: intervention, genetic, and observational
4. The two Triads, atherogenic dyslipidemia and ⬆️LDL+⬆️HDL+⬇️Triglycerides

1/ Imagine for a moment that a low carb diet wasn’t the best fix for type 2 #diabetes, obesity and metabolic disease, but instead imagine the most effective method was swimming.
Would the angry mob on twitter react the same?...........
#LCHF #Keto #T2DM
2/ If swimming was #lowcarb
“Swimming is really dangerous, people have died swimming. Any doctor who recommends swimming is irresponsible and should have their licence revoked.”
#LCHF #Keto #T2DM
3/ If swimming was #lowcarb
“Swimming isn’t for everyone. Just because it’s worked for loads of people, you shouldn’t recommend it because some people can’t swim”

Regarding the #ESCCongress reaction on #DAPAHF I share the enthusiasm of most. For this very reason I made this thread which I hope will raise the curiosity of others.

It shows some shared pathways of medication and #Lifestyle that are obviously not mutually exclusive. (1/4)
Both Pathways ⬆️ Ketones
During #heartfailure mitochondrial oxidative metabolism is compromised and 3-OHB) is ⬆️ In HF pts Ketone bodies appear to be a more efficient alternative fuel and myocardial ketone oxidation as a key metabolic adaptation in the failing human heart. (2/4)
I honestly would not be surprised at all if in a near future we start using Exogenous Ketones, Esters, Salts and even MCT oil as a possible economical therapeutic approach. (3/4)

Ex. Think about #Alzheimer Type III DM & how patients can improve dramatically w diet change.

1pm Glu from 3.7 to 5.6 over 60min and made me hungry+++

Second ‘hump’ after 2pm was the other half #couldntresist

50:50 mix of heavy cream with @Breyers #lowcarb ice-cream is both delish and #flatlineish

I’m not one for treats (and don’t wish to re-awaken my sugar-cravings) but this is good to know #cgm

22g CHO as maltodextrin/60ml
Recommended dose 1-3x per hour
I’d need ?20x for 100k (that’s 1200ml to carry/digest) 😳
