It can be done. I can reduce my LDL by 25% or so by drastically reducing the saturated fat. But that means I end up with higher blood sugars. I prefer to control by blood sugars.

He said it reduces LDL, but if it reduces more particles of the large LDL than the small LDL, that is not necessarily a good thing. It also reduces HDL which most often definately is not a good thing.

When I told my medical provider I was going to try LCHF to manage my diabetes, she commented about how all that fat would not be good for me. I demurred and said I'd rather control my BG without drugs than worry about a metric around which there was plenty of ambiguity. Later lipid panels and a particle test proved me right.
