How to Lower Cholesterol: LDL vs. HDL- Thomas DeLauer...
Good vs. Bad Cholesterol:
LDL cholesterol is not bad. HDL is not cholesterol and neither is LDL. “High” and “low” refer to the relative proportion of protein to fat in the bundle. HDL stands for High Density Lipoprotein. LDL stands for Low Density Lipoprotein. (There are three other lipoproteins; chylomicrons, VLDL and IDL) Cholesterol and fat are not water-soluble so they need to be carried around the body in something to do their vital work. The carriers of such substances are called lipoproteins. (4)
Lipoproteins travel round the bloodstream and act as transporters. So LDL and HDL are carriers of cholesterol, as well as triglycerides and phospholipids and proteins. LDL is the carrier of fresh cholesterol and HDL is the carrier of recycled cholesterol.
The liver is central to the regulation of cholesterol levels in the body. Not only does it synthesize cholesterol for export to other cells, but it also removes cholesterol from the body by converting it to bile salts and putting it into the bile where it can be eliminated in the feces. Chylomicrons and VLDL deliver TAG to cells in the body. Two types of lipoproteins are triglyceride-rich: the chylomicrons and VLDL. Chylomicrons are synthesized by enterocytes from lipids absorbed in the small intestine. VLDL is synthesized in the liver. The function of these lipoproteins is to deliver energy-rich triacylglycerol (TAG) to cells in the body (pink pathway). TAG is stripped from chylomicrons and VLDL through the action of lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that is found on the surface of endothelial cells. HDL is involved in reverse cholesterol transport. Excess cholesterol is eliminated from the body via the liver, which secretes cholesterol in bile or converts it to bile salts. The liver removes LDL and other lipoproteins from the circulation by receptor-mediated endocytosis. It travels in the circulation where it gathers cholesterol to form mature HDL, which then returns the cholesterol to the liver via various pathways. LDL delivers cholesterol to cells in the body. As VLDL particles are stripped of triacylglycerol, they become more dense. These particles are remodeled at the liver and transformed into LDL. The function of LDL is to deliver cholesterol to cells, where it is used in membranes, or for the synthesis of steroid hormones. Cells take up cholesterol by receptor-mediated endocytosis. LDL binds to a specific LDL receptor and is internalized in an endocytic vesicle. Receptors are recycled to the cell surface, while hydrolysis in an endolysosome releases cholesterol for use in the cell. LDL is what we call a carrier protein, and one of its important jobs is to carry a fundamentally important chemical to every cell in the body. This chemical is a critical component of cell membranes, serves as a brain antioxidant, and is the raw material from which your body manufactures vitamin D, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Study - The British Medical Journal (BMJ):
The research team — comprised of experts from seven different countries — evaluated data collected from 19 studies on a total of 68,094 older adults. The team was seeking to determine if LDL cholesterol is associated with death in the older adults. According to the cholesterol hypothesis, it should directly relate. According to the BMJ study, it doesn’t. Researchers say almost 80 percent of the participants in the studies who had high LDL cholesterol did not die because of their cholesterol level. On the other hand, researchers discovered people with low levels of LDL cholesterol, or LDL-C, had the highest rates of death related to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.

My goal should be to have my cholesterol to go lower from 245 to 199, the least, with the use ofthis cholesterol guide “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it). Fortunately, in just a few weeks, I have it lowered to 216. I achieved it without doing significant modifications on my diet regime. .

LDL IS BAD if too much of it is small dense LDL. Genetics and other conditions influence how much LDL is the dangerous small dense LDL. People please don't accept what Thomas DeLauer says without first getting either a Cardio IQ test panel thru Quest Diagnostics or a NMR lipoprotein test panel thru LabCorp. Diets that cause high LDL cholesterol are quite acceptable for some people and totally disastrous for others. You can't make a sweeping generalization that saturated fats are harmless. There are multiple types of saturated fats and they don't all have the same effect on the body and the same ones don't affect everyone the same way. Very common saturated fatty acids include stearic acid, palmitic acid, myristic acid, lauric acid, caprilic acid, and caproic acid. Each has a somewhat different effect on the body.

So how do you reduce the triglycerides and the LDL inflammation atherosclerosis ?


CHLOE HAMMOND . 2 months ago

My dad had two strokes within one year of each other and he had the “perfect cholesterol levels”. He eats a SAD diet high in processed sugars, grains, and high in vegetable oils that contain omega 6. His body is riddled with inflammation. I tried to show him keto for his small intestine issues but he wouldn’t listen to me. My LDL is slightly high and my doctor said as long as HDL and triglycerides are good then there’s nothing wrong with LDL being high and can benefit the body. I love my doctor so much, just wish I could convince my dad to switch diets because he’s literally dying and doesn’t care.

I am glad to hear your explanations on LDL as a cargo to deliver new cholesterols FROM THE LIVER TO TISSUES. This reconciles what I understand of LDL. On the flip side, I m totally confused by the fact that my LDL goes way up when I fast. This phenomenon was observed and explained by Dave Feldman ( the well-known self- experimented cholesterol guy), that LDL does go up while fasting because it deliver triglycerides from adipose tissue to the liver to be utilized for fuel, as the body run on its own fat now. This kinds of explains the phenomenon, but it contradicts the very fundermental role of LDL is to deliver stuff ( cholesterol, triglycerides, etc) from the liver to cells, not the other way around!!! Plus, prior to fatty acid oxidation, lipolysis in the adipocytes have already turn triglycerides into free fatty acids before releasing them into blood stream to be delivered to the liver or other capable cells of directly metabolising free fatty acids for fuel, therefore , triglycerides detected in the blood should only be coming merely from either dietary fat, or from fat syntheised in the liver via the process neolipogenesis. This agrees with the explanation from professor Ken Sirakis that high LDL is present in those on a higj carb diet. My point is what you said is in line with what I learn on LDL, and observations on thousands of patients by professor Sirakis, but it is contradictory to my blood work as well as what Dave 's observations. Now I m still confused! Thanks Thomas!

My own mate had been identified as having quite high cholesterol level and also had been put on meds. He does not want to eat seafood thus this was a fairly easy choice for him.

Hi Thomas, greatly appreciated of your videos. I definitely promote your supporters. Please help with this question: I have heard that a good indicator of health is your ratio of Triglycerides over HDL. Can you add any details and what is your ratio? Regards - Phil - NJ USA.

((QUOTE)) April 4, 2016 Washington (AFP) - An experimental drug that greatly increases levels of "good" cholesterol has no effect on heart health, a comprehensive clinical trial found, leaving researchers shocked and disappointed. It is also a blow to patients who were hoping for an alternative because they cannot or will not take statins, which can cut low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol. The study involving more than 12,000 patients at high risk for serious cardiovascular problems found that evacetrapib had no benefits, according to research presented Sunday at the American College of Cardiology conference in Chicago. Manufacturer Eli Lilly stopped the trial in October when the drug was found to be ineffective but now experts have given a comprehensive explanation of what happened. Two other drugs in the same class as evacetrapib, known as CETP inhibitors and designed to raise levels of HDL cholesterol -- high-density lipoprotein, the "good" type -- have also failed, presenting experts with a quandary. "We have a paradox: here we've got an agent that more than doubles the levels of good cholesterol and lowers bad cholesterol and yet has no effect on clinical events," said lead author Professor Stephen Nicholls. "We were disappointed and surprised by the results," added Nicholls, of The University of Adelaide in Australia and cardiologist at Royal Adelaide Hospital. On average, patients taking evacetrapib daily for at least 18 months lowered their LDL cholesterol by 37 percent and increased their HDL cholesterol -- high-density lipoprotein, the "good" type -- by 130 percent compared with patients taking a placebo. However, there was no difference between the two groups in terms of the primary "endpoint" of the research -- including the amount of time until cardiovascular death, heart attack, stroke or coronary artery bypass surgery. "As we close out the trial, we're trying to understand how a drug that seems to do all the right things in terms of blood cholesterol levels doesn't then translate into reducing clinical events," added Nicholls. Steve Nissen, chairman of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic, attempted to put a positive spin on the disappointing outcome. "These findings illustrate the importance of performing large, high-quality outcome trials," he said. "Just looking at the effects a therapy has on cholesterol levels doesn't always translate into clinical benefits." However, Nicholls cautioned that evacetrapib could potentially benefit patients with low risk of serious heart trouble, although that was not part of the study. The findings could challenge conventional thinking regarding the benefits of HDL cholesterol in protecting against cardiovascular problems, he said.They also suggest that existing treatments, such as statins, are already so effective that they cannot be improved upon. However, some people with high cholesterol were hoping for an alternative to statins because they complain about side effects such as muscle pain and weakness. ((UNQUOTE)) [[[SUMMARY The failure of a study on the cholesterol-lowering drug evacetrapib was reported in April 2016 by its manufacturer, Eli Lilly, after spending $90 million of research and development costs. “The drug, evacetrapib, was pulled after it FAILED TO PREVENT one single case of heart attack, stroke, by-pass surgery, or angina—even though it successfully doubled levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and lowered ‘bad’ cholesterol. These results were presented to the American College of Cardiology's in April 2016, recounting that researchers found that drug did not demonstrate any clinically meaningful cardiovascular risk benefit, despite a 130% increase in “good” cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol, and a 37% reduction in “bad” cholesterol, which is called LDL cholesterol. In the meantime, Pfizer pharmaceutical famously spent $800 million on a large trial combining its blockbuster statin Lipitor with torcetrapib, a CETP inhibitor; the combination of the two drugs was ultimately found to RAISE THE RISK OF DEATH and heart problems in patients. In 2012, Roche also scrapped development of its CETP inhibitor, dalcetrapib, due to a “lack of clinically meaningful efficacy.” “This is a a blow to the cholesterol theorists.” Evacetrapib is the third CETP failure. The first, torcetrapib, actually increased the rate of CARDIOVASCULAR DEATHS and disease despite lowering bad cholesterol levels. Conclusion: the use of Lipitor and torcetrapib, dalcetrapib, and evacetrapib increased the good cholesterol while decreasing the bad cholesterol, however; it surely resulted in an increase of cardiovascular deaths.]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

Great video Thomas and it totally makes sense but you MUST know your messing with one of the most profitable business models in medicine today I.E. big pharma and the drugs they push OOPS I mean prescribe through a doctor who of course has no profit motive . You might want to get an armed personal body guard as you are threatening their VERY lucrative multi BILLION dollar business model and I am only half joking here as this kind of talk will probably really P's them Off..

This is a shattering discovery by the authors of that BMJ publication. If true, the Pharma industry and Medical profession have been poisoning us and worse.....harming us....unnecessarily!! Unless you count their greed as necessary. Thank you for this critical information. There will be a Tsunami of class action lawsuits because of this and rightly so, the doctors out there are Zombie greed monsters who would prescribe cynanide to get rich if they thought they could get away with it. The Pharma industry has lost their ethical purpose and is even greedier. Being over 60, I will stop taking my statin now.
