Cholesterol, or more specifically lipoprotein testing, will remain an important determinant of cardiovascular risk. However, once you or your doctor understands how inflammation and oxidative stress play pivotal roles in the development of atherosclerosis and plaque formation, cholesterol interpretation becomes a whole new ball game!
Listen to the original audio of my one hour interview with Jimmy Moore of Livin La Vida LowCarb Blog, the LLVLC Show (Episode 715) that was used for his upcoming book Cholesterol Clarity: What The HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?. I am one of 29 expert contributors for the book which will be released to the public next week.
Just as our conversation gets more interesting the audio quality and internet connection deteriorate some. Bear with it, as the key content comes toward the end.
Jimmy is one those rare individuals that, despite doing everything right in terms of lifestyle, nutrition and reducing oxidative stress, his LDL-C as well as other advanced cardiovascular markers like LDL-P and ApoB are on the rise.

Listen to us discuss the results and implications, providing insight into this fascinating topic.
