HDL Update: Age-Related Changes, All-Cause Mortality Risk, And Progress Towards The Optimal Range

In November 2020, I made a HDL video based on a meta-analysis in ~3.4 million subjects that was published in July 2020. In Dec 2020, a larger study (n=15.8 million subjects) was published-those data are presented in the video, and compared against the meta-analysis.

In addition, I’ve tested my HDL 2 more times since November 2020, so how’s my progress for getting it into the optimal range? Also, I attempt to derive clinical significance by identifying correlations for higher HDL with lower Lp(a) and hs-CRP.

    Great video, thanks for doing it. It looks like the vinegar in the pickles could be what is raising your HDL. I am anxiously waiting for your data on what you did to improve your lymphocyte count.

      Thanks Lee. I just took a quick look at my data, and there any obvious, strong correlations. The closest to statistical significance is the amount of fiber/100 calories, with a positive correlation, p=0.08. So more fiber/100 cals, higher lymphocytes. Whether that’s causative, though, is another story, and whether that would work in you or others is unknown…
