I'm in my 5th week of attempting to follow a Nutritional Ketosis diet and have managed to drop about ½ a stone. My BMI is down to 24, so I'm happy about that. I'm 75 and had a heart attack 4½ years ago and had a stent fitted. I was 14½ stone then and now I'm nearly down to 11½ stone. I've started to (modestly) pump iron, to see if I can build up some muscle tissue, and I feel better than I've felt in years. However my total cholesterol is still up at 7.
I've had a facebook message from Peter Attia, one of the two gurus of NK, over in the USA and he recommends getting apoB tested as a better indicator of improvements in cholesterol and heart risk factors. Even if tests are not available on the NHS, is there a commercial test that can be purchased?
