A recent study is saying that LDL cholesterol is a poor risk marker for heart disease. Dr. Martin has been saying this for years, and it appears that more studies are starting to say the same thing.
The study goes on to say that the triglyceride HDL ratio, which is used as a marker of insulin resistance, is actually a good risk marker for heart disease. Dr. Martin has been consistent in saying how cholesterol doesn’t cause heart disease but triglycerides do.
Join Dr. Martin as he talks about the dangers of triglycerides in today’s episode.
