Dr Nadir Ali podcast
for example: a cardiologist feels good when he can help someone lower their cholesterol
“this is fantastic we have improved your health” they are looking at the wrong marker.
For me: is this guy feeling better because: blood sugar is lower?
Joints feel better? Blood pressure lower?
Spending less on medication’s?
these are better surrogate markers than a blood marker.
Cardiologist have been focusing on cholesterol,
which is the wrong thing cholesterol is a surrogate marker for insulin resistance.
We should focus on the quality of the cholesterol,
which is an indication of metabolic health.
A typical consultation is: “your stress and ultrasound tests are good,
let’s go up on cholesterol medicine let’s increase your blood pressure medicine,
go for a low fat diet and exercise. See you in six months.
