Plaque regression can be done... apparently

Thoughts on this YouTube video...

It seems a combination of niacin and LOW DOSE statin DO reduce plaque...

Eight minutes in he says he should have focussed on high-glycaemic carbs.

These are what cause the hyperinsulinaemia that causes insulin-resistance that causes the inflammation.

The niacin and statins are not preventative; they have been used as a cure for the effects of inflammation. Real prevention means inflammation doesn't reach detrimental levels; limit insulin stimulation.

He said he had inflammation and right at the very end he said low dose statins made the difference. At 8 minutes I didn’t hear anything about carbs....he said his lifestyle was pretty good

Could you please expand in it. What are the medicines and what are the test results before and after the two medicines?

In the video he says statin n ramipril..most in this site take these two but nobody claimed regression or not tested CIMT twice

Thank you for your response.

I don't believe it was the statins that "removed" the plaque.
