Dr. Dall speaks out about lipid guidelines

The new European 2019 lipid guidelines recommend high dose statins (and ezetimibe if needed) to aggressively lower LDL-C.  Also, it is recommends to measure lipoprotein (a) only once.

I am happy to see some acknowledgement of the importance of lipoprotein (a), but this seems counterintuitive. High dose statins increase lipoprotein (a) and aortic stenosis risk!

At least 30 % of patients have lipoprotein (a) elevation and there is a higher percentage in the secondary, prevention population.  I guess if we only check once we don't know what we have caused. High dose statins also don't help hyper-absorbers of cholesterol (look at 4S study). That is 20 % of people!

Shouldn't guidelines at a minimum "do no harm"?

Those of us who have been measuring lipoprotein (a) - and Apo B or LDL P - for decades now know how predictable "statin induced increase" is in both hyper-absorbers and genetically elevated lipoprotein (a).

I guess these and other guidelines just keep the "virtual lipid clinic" in business but it is unfortunate. I would love to see this disease trend reverse, and would love to have a reason to retire.

I suspect in 10 years this will get figured out by the "decision makers". Until then we keep trying to discuss this when given the opportunity at medical education events.

What Does Your Blood Reveal About You - Insulance Resistance & Belly Fat

Some testimonials deserve sharing. In fact there are two more things since December that just plain require sharing. One is Choe, one of Dr. Dall's very special patients who has been so very successful in her treatment and the other is a testimonial from another professional.

Early Detection Center for Heart Disease and Diabetes was Dr. Dall's vision to create a cutting-edge center for early detection of heart disease & diabetes using the most advanced diagnostic tools available. Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans and is almost entirely preventable.

Dr. Dall has almost 20 years experience using advanced lipid testing. She was an “early adopter” of NMR technology when it first became clinically available in the late 1990s. Armed with this additional more comprehensive assessment of your blood, we can identify genetic factors not picked up on traditional testing, and we can help determine whether or not aggressive treatment of cholesterol is needed.

Sometimes it is not. Unless there are excess LDL Particles or Apo B, high cholesterol may not need to be treated with drugs. Refer to several of the videos on this site as well as on youtube. Click Here for the results of a Google search of Dr. Dall's videos.

Dr. Dall’s mission is to identify early signs of heart disease and metabolic problems that lead to diabetes years before you have a heart attack or stroke. And if you already have some form of heart disease, we will use treatments that have been shown to slow or even reverse the disease over time.
