Btw if I didn’t mention it somewhere in this thread, I did two lipid panels during my 1 1/2 year of keto, and plenty of lipid panels to compare to them during ME before. With ME before keto I had really consistent normal total cholesterol, high HDL, normal LDL, and normal triglycerides (with only a couple rare bumps to borderline on triglycerides). During keto my total cholesterol and LDL shot up to high even though I was only eating healthy fats as much as possible. HDL didn’t change, triglycerides naturally went down. This is VERY common with keto. My worry is that no one knows, seriously no researchers, no clinicians, what the long-term effects would be of having bad lipid markers on cardio and cerebrovascular health with keto. Many pro-keto people say hand wavy totally unproven things like it’s so anti-inflammatory you won’t get cardiovascular disease or stroke, etc. But they truly have no idea!
