4 slides: LDL-C/apoB ratio was used as a surrogate of mean LDL particle diameter with > 1.0 suggesting larger (cholesterol-rich) & < 1.0 suggesting smaller (cholesterol-poor) particles. It takes more of the latter to carry a given mass of cholesterol https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33810957/4
Well said https://twitter.com/pabeda1/status/1395572989157068805
@Drlipid I keep saying this all the time to my patients: measuring cholesterol content wrapped inside apoA says nothing about HDL multiple functions and dysfunctions!
A must read. Check your apoB and is elevated (>80 mg/dL) chase it (lower it) with a vengeance! https://twitter.com/mak_sysepi/status/1395615205871259649
More lifespanning data on the crucial role of apolipoprotein B @LancetLongevity https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanhl/article/PIIS2666-7568(21)00086-6/fulltext High apoB not so good: shortens lifespan, increases risks of CHD and stroke, and in multivariable analyses accounting for LDL-C, increases risk of type 2 diabetes.

#Exercise #fitness #nutrition
1) Exercise is the most important drug we have.
Use it! Don't get bogged down by the details of nutrition.
TGRLP - The major role of CETP in the exchange of core neutral lipids (TG & CE) - Here is one of my slides (wish I could attach the animations that my slides have) and an oldie but goodie review - (in graphic the VLDL particle can also be a chylomicron) https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19023137/
Excellent presentation BUT please note: when speaking about Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) there is absolutely no lab test called LDL - Speakers should SPECIFICALLY elucidate whether the data discussed refers to LDL-C or LDL-P (apoB). So often LDL-C has little relation to LDL-P https://twitter.com/atherosociety/status/1400879239650590725

I used to get so angry with idiotic articles like this, but now I realize such scientifically illiterate and click-baity titles actually help me filter quicker. With titles like this, there is zero risk of missing anything valuable by not reading.
#DYK: The link between stress & #CV is shown to be stronger in women than in men.
Recent studies reported that stressful life events & social strain can increase a woman’s likelihood of developing coronary heart disease by up to 21%.
The storm always passes, and when it does, it's time to shine.
