Metabolic Syndrome Is Associated with Elevated Oxidative Stress and Dysfunctional Dense HDL Particles Displaying Impaired Antioxidative Activity
For those not yet aware, HDL actually has several subtypes, the subtype HDL2 seeming to be the most protective. These subtypes have antioxidant and protective abilities, but, in insulin resistant patients, they lose a large percentage of their protective abilities. So, take the poor woman above who had her ovaries drilled. I now believe that it should be considered malpractice. The OB drills a patient’s ovaries, an unnecessary procedure, and remains totally oblivious to the fact that this patient has a major metabolic abnormality that is wreaking havoc on the rest of her body.
