Why everything you’ve been told about cholesterol is WRONG! A conversation with Dave Feldman

If you are interested in lipids, you’ve probably heard of Dave Feldman and his work. If not, you’ve got some homework to do, and I think you’ll be amazed at what you find. Dave’s work can found at cholesterolcode.com where he details his multiple, meticulous self-experimental projects. Prior to cholesterol adventures Dave was a senior software scientist and an engineer. He brings this “out of the box” thinking to the world of medicine and we are all a better off for it.

He began a low-carb, high-fat diet in April 2015 and has since learned everything he could about it with special emphasis on cholesterol. He saw his own lipid numbers spike substantially after going on the diet and spotted a pattern in the lipid system that’s very similar to distributed objects in networks.

He’s since learned quite a bit on the subject both through research and experimentation which has revealed some very powerful data (see his Cholesterol Code series Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, and Part V).
As of this writing, his “Extreme Drop” experiment has gotten the most attention where he induced a 73 point drop in my LDL-C and a 1115 point drop in my LDL-P.

In this show we discuss Dave’s recent talk at Keto Salt Lake which can be found on YouTube here:

  1. So if you go with the endothelial damage or disfunction theory, what do you think might be the cause of that? I'm thinking chronically high insulin… maybe?

  2. thanks Paul and David, David really knows this subject and has also played with it, so he is really knowledgeable on this topic.by the way these analogies are very good for mortals like me. I love David and his passion and sharing of his knowledge so those like me who want to use this info for making well evaluated choices that will benifit our health for the rest of our brief lifes

  3. Arteries vs. Veins — pressure, turbulence, but also oxygen level. Oxidative stress increase contributing also?

  4. Thanks to you guys and a few others, I knew what the reason was for high LDL after being on carnivore/low carb for soon 6 months!! Lost all the previously stubborn fat, feel great!
    I was laughing when the doctor called me to come see him since my LDL was high!!
    I asked them to go study a bit more about cholesterol!!

  5. Hey Paul.. Thanks to you and Dave F. Congrats on completing UW and moving to San Diego too. Have a great weekend at Keto Con!

  6. If you still believe that dietary cholesterol and saturated fat is bad for your health, read “The Big Fat Surprise “ by Nina Teicholz.
    Wake up people, we’ve been duped!

  7. Wow this stuff is incredible as much as I can keep up with it. I love listening to both of these guys and to put them together is incredible.

  8. I guess Vytorin is still being sold, but I remember about 10 years ago, this drug (statin + cholesterol-absorption-blocker) really ran into big problems when more people started dying, in spite of excellent cholesterol-lowering.  It was when reports came out about increasing deaths with Vytorin that those cute commercials were taken off of TV. Those were the commercials where people looked like their food.Here is a quote from https://www.verywellhealth.com/ezetimibe-vytorin-for-cholesterol-3577207"ENHANCE was aimed at proving that Vytorin improved atherosclerotic plaques more than simvastatin alone. When the results were finally released in 2008, it was learned that people treated with Vytorin did slightly worse (not better) than those receiving simvastatin alone.Because of these negative results (and the fact that many considered the delay in reporting those results to be at least unseemly), sales of ezetimibe tanked. And the commercials disappeared altogether."___________________I'm sure there's more to this story, but the bottom line for me is that really good cholesterol lowering didn't help in the general population

  9. Dr. David and Dr. Paul, I have a question.

    My research on the chemistry side indicates that a person is in top health when their pH is between 7.35-7.45. Meat in general is 5.5 pH or on the lower side of the food spectrum. Eggs and cheeses are 6.5-7.0 pH depending on what part of the egg and kind of cheese. All these foods are acidic or acid forming in nature.

    Question: How does the body change the pH of these foods during the process to increase to the alkaline state to be in the 7.3-7.4 range?

    Thanks, excellent video.

  10. Brain storming here. Is there a correlation with the introduction of "RoundUP" Glyphosate in 1974 and the rise of arterial inflammation/damage atherosclerotic disease? Lean Mass hyper LDL responders, could very well be athletes who carb load glyphosate contaminated foods.The combination of stressors – high Systolic pressure (during exercise), high insulin and grain contaminated glyphosate, causing epithelial damage not only in intestines but in arterial vessels. The LDL/calcium response as sort of an arterial stucco repair patch ? Inflammatory pre Cancer of the arterial walls. One basically dies from the bodies attempt at repairing the damage (blood vessel occlusion – myocardial infarction ) . Basically inflammatory draino in the diet. In recent years, many athletes are converting to ketones as an alternative fuel source and or eating Organic foods. The tide is changing. Does systemic glyphosate consumption/poisoning bind too arterial walls or cause oxidation of cholesterol.? Does Dietary Saturated fat acting as a lubricant/teflon coating for moving toxins in/out of the bloodstream?

  11. Absolutely fascinating talk. Particularly to me as I am 2.5 months into LCHF diet following an MI at age 56 and just got my Lipid panel back a few days ago and my HDL is up, triglycerides crashed, tri/HDL is 2.7 (down from 5+) and LDL up sharply to 214. Doc is going to try to get me back on statin, which I dropped when I started LCHF.

  12. I love Dave Feldman! I love the way he looks, I love the information he provides, I love the sound of his name. I really can't fault the guy. To sum Dave Feldman up, all I can say is WHAT A GUY!!

  13. I developed xanthelasma on my eyelid after starting on a keto diet about a decade ago along with a great increase in my total and ldl cholesterol. Dave mentioned xanthelasma as a sign of FH but my cholesterol levels before keto were very low suggesting I do not have FH? – no signs in my family as well. I do however fit the hyper -responder profile.

  14. Oh to be ahead of the curve when those behind the curve are the over-seers! Keto and Carnivore results in numbers that primary care doctors convulse about. Long story short, learn as much as you can and be ready to push back against your doctor, and for most people it's too much. You really need to be well grounded AND have a backbone for standing up against authority, that is rare.

    When I pick a doctor, I want to know their belief system first… and FWIW I need a new doctor because I've moved and I'm not sure how to find a practitioner inline with my "controversial" beliefs. Any ideas? Do tell!

  15. This guy is so fake. Paul saladino isn't even a doctor. Learned all he knows from youtube then doesn't give credit to said people.

  16. Paul, you may want to record a talk with Dr. Raja Dhir on probiotics. He is a brilliant scientist, but doesn't think the carnivore diet is healthy. 🙁

  17. I have low HDL 38 low Triglycerides 88 but higher LDL I think if I can remember right 223. I’m keto heavy Carnivore. Before keto my HDL was 25

  18. Dave and Paul, great interview but please check Dr. Jack Kruse and have a talk with him. He will surely light some things up.

  19. Brilliant video….but you can see why the mass population has been given a statin! In the UK a GP has approximately 10 minutes with a patient….they just see high LDL and even if any other biomarker is off e.g. slightly raised triglycerides then the guidelines will be to medicate. It is tragic that the GP has no time to think about if this is person is a low carb hyper responder, or there is any other explanation for a raised LDL!!. They won't even ask about diet, let alone check your insulin levels (they don't even do this for diabetic patients) or probably even HBA1c, before reaching for the prescription. It is all about budgets, and the push to dish out an easy drug to the masses. The GP will probably just take a view that the patient probably doesn't eat the best, is probably relatively sedentary and make an assumption that therefore the LDL is putting them at relative risk of heart disease, and the drug companies remain forever grateful. I have a health Facebook page and youtube channel and will be posting this video for reference to my readers. Fabulous information….loving your videos Paul.

  20. ~30 min mark……John S. Yudkin said it was sugar !! he was right the whole time but they made him out to seem like a quack – sad……thus…SAD diet began lol

  21. I have spent some 15 years trying to raise my HDLs. Nothing works. Regardless of high or low trigylcerides (500 or 90) or LDLs in the low or mid-100s the HDLs stay in the mid-30s and have since 2004.
