Ketogenic & Low-Carbohydrate

& Intermittant Fasting lifestyles

Many people are finding success in improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing abdominal fat, weight, and inflammatory markers by using a ketogenic or low-carbohydrate ("low-carb") diet. Other people would like to try a ketogenic or low-carb diet, but they do not know where to begin or they want to do so under the guidance of a medical doctor.

Lipid Specialists, SC

Up to one in three people on ketogenic or low-carb diets can develop very high apoB-containing lipoprotein particles, and these abnormal lipid levels can go undiagnosed without evaluation by a physician. Consistent evidence from numerous and multiple different types of clinical and genetic studies unequivocally establishes that low density lipoprotein is a causal factor in the complex pathophysiology of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes).
