> The way you talk about the lipids is the way doctors talk about lipids without considering these as average numbers on a SAD diet while if you are on this reddit I would expect you know the science behind it and would understand that this is not a lipid that leads to health.

Funny because one of the references I have on my desk right now has a decidedly different take. Cholesterol (part of circulating lipids) can get oxidized in the intima of the arterial wall and that causes plaques/heart disease.

With a 56 HDL, his reverse cholesterol transport must be rather high. With the rest of his lipid numbers, I would guess his actual risk is low, but again -- it's premature to say and a CAC scan and advanced lipid panel would be more instructive.

> Let me clarify why I stated "confusion, doubt, uncertainty".

His blood sugar numbers were excellent. When a person has a 70-80 blood sugar level, who thinks the person needs to change their diet? Those are the glucose numbers of an 18 year old kid. It was prior to this person disclosing their weight.

You said his lipids were terrible. On what basis and what studies are you using to make such an extreme statement?

I stand by my comments and disagree with your supposition.

Cummins is one of the biggest deniers in the scene. He has absolutely no idea. I already told you how it works. I also named you two books which are very good.
