And lesson one of the month from me is Cholesterol is a 27 carbon sterol molecule synthesized in every cell in the body - there are no good or bad types #cholesterol @society_eas https://twitter.com/EsperionInc/status/1433027364271890433
Today is the first day of #NationalCholesterolMonth! Follow us all month long for exciting #cholesterol content.
The Baltimore Ravens and The Stephen & Renee Bisciotti Foundation are donating $1 million to support Hurricane Ida relief funds in New Orleans and the surrounding Louisiana areas.
. Interesting, but pure speculation/"modeling". Other analyses of REDUCE-IT data by Dr Bhatt et al show that the effect of the mineral oil placebo is at most trivial.
Good discussion of benefit of EPA - recent data mining from Copenhagen Study. Does it "support a more skeptical interpretation of REDUCE-IT's large effect size & should it limit the use of EPA until a second CV outcome trial is performed?" https://www.medpagetoday.com/meetingcoverage/esc/94270?xid=nl_mpt_DHE_2021-08-30&eun=g362180d0r&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Headlines%20Top%20Cat%20HeC%20%202021-08-30&utm_term=NL_Daily_DHE_dual-gmail-definition
I really don’t like seeing this Adam. When I came into the league the NFL had a stance against gambling. Now it seems like we’ve accepted it. I realize it’s legal now but we’ve all seen the damage gambling can do to lives. I don’t think we should be promoting it. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1432355057136242696
Sign of the times: NFL has reached agreements with FOX Bet, BetMGM, PointsBet, and WynnBET to become Approved Sportsbook Operators for the 2021 NFL season.

Athletes have the power to change lives and better their communities, and Chris and his family have done just that.
WOW - Dr Bill Harris 20 minute interview with 1 of the giants in fatty acid lipidology - Copenhagen's Dr. Jörn Dyerberg was one of the pioneers with Olaf Bang who took their dogsleds to Greenland & evaluated the Inuits - discovered EPA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vTH_aKcrEU @OmegaQuant
Durant is up to 23 points as #USA's lead grows to 59-50 after going down by 15 in the first half.
Aussie might need to bring Thybulle in ASAP. KD might go off for 40.
Holiday, Booker, Bam have been exceptional, too.
For the next #NFLPASummerReadingSearies feature we would like to highlight @BirkMatt. Matt played for the @Vikings and @Ravens. He is the author of "All Pro Wisdom"!

Carbs have been vilified & blamed for obesity epidemic, T2D & CVD. But the important role of carbohydrate in a healthy diet is often forgotten. This paper is an excellent review of carbs re wt, IR, T2D, inflammation, lipids, CVD & all-cause mortality. https://www.atherosclerosis-journal.com/article/S0021-9150(21)00146-5/fulltext?dgcid=raven_jbs_etoc_email2

Another aspect of BASIC cardiometabolic care that too often seems to be ignored, perhaps because it requires getting a urine sample. Too many seem not to know and thus miss the potential early warning sign of a renal/CV issue associated with eGFR < 90 https://twitter.com/ErinMichos/status/1413198630576484355
As this @goKDIGO heatmap indicates BOTH #eGFR & #uACR are prognostic of risk in #CKD. Yet this latest study by @JoeCoresh et al found testing rates for uACR in #T2D are suboptimal and highly variable across organizations. All clinicians need to be onboard! https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/early/2021/07/02/dc20-2715 3
