The Dumbbell Thruster


This 2015 trial used Womens’ Health Study data and a consideration of three alternative lipid biomarkers to demonstrate that LDL cholesterol markers significantly under- or overestimate heart disease risk in a meaningful segment of the population.

Conversely, insulin-resistant individuals with low LDL-C levels may still be at a high risk of heart disease.
