Dr. Berg talks about if ketosis increases or decreases the risk of heart disease. In rodents, there was an increase in risk of getting cholesterol, increases LDL, decrease in HDL and increase in triglycerides. However, in humans, there was the opposite a decrease in cholesterol, decrease in LDL, increase in HDL and decrease in triglycerides.

In Rodents increase insulin, but in humans, it decreases insulin, decrease blood sugar as well as decrease A1C.

I have another question from someone, does ketosis increase or decrease the risk of heart disease. The study that I am going to post down below is very interesting because they compared the study from rodents versus humans. I want to talk about what they found. When they put people on the ketogenic diet which is basically is more fat but the carbs are way down. Rodents increases cholesterol, increases LDL (bad cholesterol), decreases HDL (good cholesterol) and increases triglycerides. But in humans, decreases cholesterol, decreases LDL (bad cholesterol), increases HDL (good cholesterol) and increases triglycerides. This tells me that the inflammation and the problems in the artery are not an issue. Let’s talk about the pancreas, in rodents it increase insulin and in humans it decrease insulin, blood sugar and A1C because the main cause of the heart disease is high insulin and the ketogenic diet is designed to lower insulin. One little thing I am want to add is to make sure you are going to add intermittent fasting to then take it to the next level because that will also help you lower insulin even more and really make this numbers look really good.
