    LDL CHOLESTEROL AND LONGEVITY

    It would now be interesting to see this study done with Caucasians to see if the same mortality exists for very low LDL-C. I suspect that it would be difficult to find a statistically significant Caucasian study population whose LDL-C were so low without lipid lowering interventions.

    LDL CHOLESTEROL AND LONGEVITY

    LDL-C is an important component in our overall health but it is just that, a component. Mortality/morbidity is the sum of the whole and the interaction between all the components. The study does not address what the other lipid components were, such HDL, triglycerides, LDL particle number or size, Apo B level, or how the study participants achieved such low LDL levels or other health problems or medications. My ears would perk up after reading this study if my LDL were so low and I wasn't taking any lipid lowering medications and even more concerning would be why didn't my doctor who ordered this test didn't discuss it with me.
