KEN SIKARIS d’ | 2 CASES: low carb… sdLDL reduced ‘That is bottom line’
presents episode 1081 | Dr Ken Sikaris
Low Carb Down Under podcast

IDL, assumed to not be there,
-up to 1.5 of the 6 TC [for this patient] is normally IDL
-ignored on standard
lipid profile
-accounts for large
part of TG
“this is a game that
has been played,
that has caused a
lot of damage…
time to stop”

Case 1: patient changed lipid profile with low carb eating…
-TC 6.5 to 6.9
-TG 1.6 to 0.7 [taken outside of 1.5 level of concern] -HDL up and LDL up slightly
-sdLDL improved from 11% to 1%
lowering TG =
lowering sdLDL
“Don’t know why
IDL did not change”

Case 2: patient
-TC 5.2 and LDL 1.5 so doctor: ‘no need for statin’
-TG 2.1 so 17% of LDL is sdLDL!
Onto low carb eating…
both HDL & LDL increase [doctors concerned] BUT
sdLDL disappeared!
“That is bottom line
for this patient’s
cardiovascular risk”
