Dr. Nadir Ali, an interventional cardiologist clears up confusion about LDL and answers questions like is LDL cholesterol really bad for us? Why does LDL cholesterol go up on a low carb diet? Are statins bad for you? Do statins prevent or cause heart disease?

As a leading cardiologist in the high fat, low carb space, Dr. Nadir Ali has been paving the way in advocating that we should not fear high LDL cholesterol when other numbers are in line such as low triglycerides, low insulin and glucose, low inflammation, and high HDL cholesterol.

Statins are commonly prescribed for elevated LDL cholesterol but as Dr. Ali discusses in this video, we may be treating high LDL all wrong. Statins have been shown to have significant side effects like cognitive and memory problems, fatigue, and muscle pain for many patients. Elevated LDL has been shown to be important for sex hormones, muscle function, cognition, and inflammation. 

Tune in for a very informative episode and be sure to share this with someone (even your healthcare provider) who may need to hear it!
