ICP 83: Dr. Tom Dayspring, MD, FACP, FNLA

The Standard Lipid Tests, Lipid Misconceptions and LDL Denialism

In episode 83, I'm speaking with Clinical Lipidologist Dr. Thomas Dayspring. Dr. Dayspring and I connected through Twitter where I was consuming his content for many months before I reached out to him to do this podcast. It amazed me at how many very smart doctors and PhD's on twitter asked him questions about the role lipids play in the body. As Dr. Peter Attia, MD said in his intro of Dr. Dayspring, he is truly a national treasure and it the worlds expert on lipids. 

In our conversation, we talk about:

  • How he got introduced to lipids

  • His recent health transformation. 

  • The Standard Lipid Panel and what those metrics mean. 

  • Misconceptions within the field of lipids

  • The role LDL plays in cardiovascular disease and those who deny this

  • Particular concerns when it comes to ones blood lipids on certain popular dietary lifestyles.
