  1. Hello Dr. Nally,
    I love your keto talk podcast. I have learned so much and I just want to say thank you for all the knowledge that you spread among us ketonians.
    I have been on keto for 6 months. I feel great, I look leaner with lots of energy. I check my ketones, they usually range from. 9 to 5.4 when I fast. I finally went to the doctor to get my blood work and I was surprised to see my cholesterol work going crazy to the roof. Total cholesterol went from 110mg/dl to 433mg/dl, triglycerides went from 98 to 102, which is normal but I expected them to go lower, HDL what 58 to 62, LDL calculated went from 110 to 351, and cholesterol NON-HDL from 128 to 371. I have started now a low fat keto-ish diet to try to lower my cholesterol because my doctor got really scared. I really don’t want to stop doing keto. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    • Eulises, I can’t give individualized advise in this forum, but generally I can say that cholesterol does NOT go up by eating fat, it goes up because of insulin and stress and the only marker that is really demonstrative of risk you referenced is triglyceride. And triglyceride reflects what you ate in the last 24 hours. Research currently demonstrates that atherosclerosis is driven by the small dense LDL and when triglycerides are around 100 or less, your likelihood of atherogenesis is very low. Getting an NMR or cardio IQ will demonstrate this. Total and LDL-c does not help. Watch my next video and I will explain this.

      • Thank you so much Doc Muscles. I look forward to listen more of your videos and podcasts. Keep up the good work.
