mccoy Posted April 22 Report Share Posted April 22 (edited) This topics relates to chapter 7 of peter's Attia book 'Outlive', discussed in another thread. Now, the proposed strategy is to eradicate the main cause of atherosclerosis (hence, cardiovascular disease), by taking back the blood ApoB levels to the physiological levels of babies, specifically, to 20-30 mg/dL. This strategy of course involves the use of cholesterol lowering drugs, like statins and more (typically, two kinds of drugs). My question: Would you guys with an already optimal lipids panel (by conventional definitions) contemplate the adoption of Peter's Attia strategy to decrease the atherosclerotic risk to zero, by taking cholesterol lowering drugs? Can you come up with significant drawbacks or pitfalls to this strategy? Knowing that the potential side-effects of statins can be avoided by choosing other drugs?
