Thanks for reference SpectraCell, however, full article is only available to AHA Proffessionall Members. I did find some discussion of this article in Läkartidningen 2004;101:1188-94 in Swedish, so I read what is available, nice that is in Swedish. Läkartidningen is journal of Swedish Medical Society.

Hi all,

WOW are you all very well informed.

I'm more than a little embarrassed at my ignorance.

I guess when they put me on Lipitor and my fingers/toes started to get numb on occasion and the doctor completely ignored my worries I was fortunate enough to hear a caller on Alex Jones suggest this site when looking into Statins.

I feel better already just not feeling so isolated.

So thank you in advance for any advice.......BCGuy

Spectracell guy :lol:

I recall reading that a diet rich in noncomplex carbs actually contributes to the production of the smalles particles and therefore the commonly reccommended low fat low cholesterol diet is responsible for much of the problem...however I cannot find the link..do you know of this and can you direct me?

Thanks in advance

David

Here is the paper to which I think you are referring. I put the link to the section in our library for Small, Dense LDL which is where this paper is listed. It's the first paper listed in fact.

SCG,

it occurs to me to ask if there was any attempt to insure that the HFLC diet included the proper balance of essential fatty acids? and if not might that not be worth investigating??
