Watch as we talk for a few minutes about how insulin affects atherosclerosis and increases the risk of heart disease. The higher your insulin, the more plaque you make . . . yes, it is that simple.
Risk for atherosclerosis can be determined by checking your cholesterol and specifically an NMR Lipoprofile with lipids through LabCorp or a CardioIQ with Lipid Panel through Quest Labs. Additionally, ultrasound testing of the carotid arteries, which we do in my office, or through the cardiology offices, checks risk of vascular disease in the arteries of the neck and a stress test can be completed by the cardiologist to assess risk in the arteries of the heart.
Decrease your plaque risk through the use of a ketogenic diet. How do you do that? You can learn the basic principles here:
Many people have asked me over the last few weeks how to jump-start this process and get the most effective approach as they apply the principles above. You can jump-start your ketogenic journey by incorporating Dr. Nally’s favorite ketogenic products below.

I’ve become a big fan of exogenous ketones for myself and my patients with a little more challenging insulin resistance.
