INFLAMMATION NOT LDL

INFLAMMATION NOT LDL

At a medical conference I asked a Chairman of Medicine of a prestigious university how he would treat a man who had a massive heart attack with a cholesterol of only 140, LDL of 50 and no other risk factors.  He said ‘That’s a no brainer – give him a high dose statin.’  I then said, “That man’s cholesterol and LDL are excellent.  It’s probably only inflammation or a clot, so one could use vitamins and other nutrients instead.”  He abruptly and arrogantly said ‘No, give him a statin’ and he turned away.
