Jennifer Martucci, 2013, Dennis discussed on Dennis Prager
My friends have Dr Michael Richmond board certified. Cardiothoracic surgeon general surgeon. Many years ago. I had him on the show seven years ago and helped many of you as he did me. Then he went into a different form of non private practice is a doctor. But there's a Five right term of patient advocate At his place. Paladin MDs a palette in MD dot com. Which is any way up, But the Dennis prager dot com I want to make it clearer when he speaks about these labs that through the proper testing, which roast labs don't I believe that I know that With regard to your cholesterol levels. He has no financial interest in lab. Cora. May I sort of? I ascertained this during the break. I think you need to know this. So again, most doctors Are not measuring properly, something that is You were you are certain is of great significance than the amount of lipoproteins in our blood. Correct, Correct because they're counting as as you put it there, counting passengers, not cars. The car is the lipid. The car is the lipoprotein. Okay? The lipoprotein. The cholesterol lipid is the passenger. Given the importance of this, and this is where I believe among other places. You had such an impact on my own health. Why doesn't the average doctor know this? Well as we've talked about before. This is the thing that's remarkable. So I just said to you in 1961. From Yale. Very accomplished female and no chronologies published a paper and I have it. Try glitz arise lipoproteins and coronary artery disease. Then in 1967. And the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr Friedrich Sin Cholesterol classifications called the Free Juice in Classifications said No, no, no, We're doing it all wrong. I'm paraphrasing. We need to measure the car's not the people in the cars. So this is not a new concept. We've known this Forever. The problem was You don't learn ended medical school. And if you don't learn it, how do you apply it? Okay, so now that you're able to get it anywhere, Same thing You don't learn in a medical school, so there's a lack of awareness. Then there's lack of competence because very few doctors understand. Label proteins at all. I never learned it. I didn't learn it until After like, just being curious with heart surgery, and then the other thing is lack of time. It takes too much time. Doctors now are being bought up by health care systems and their times being regulated and what they can do is being regulated. And you're lucky if you see a doctor for five minutes, 10 minutes. And if you remember, I spend 50 minutes with people. So the reason we started this company actually. I started it with an entrepreneur named Jennifer Martucci is B. Because her aunt was sick in the hospital. There was no communication with doctors. And I figured, Okay, how do I spend more time with patients all over the place and teach them and not have that fear? That doctors are going to come after you, or they think because now they view me as an asset. Is they don't think I'm gonna take their patients. So now I work with doctors. They call me for cholesterol management on their patients. They call me for problems and we work as a team. So in other words, the patient lives in New Jersey will call me They'll get their blood drawn. I've got their particles. I'll have a consultation with him. Come on what to do. If their doctor doesn't understand. Most doctors would listen to me and do what's necessary. If the doctor doesn't understand or find him a new doctor. Let's talk about the what's necessary. The first thing that's necessary is to correctly assess your, uh H B l level. Is that a proper way of putting it or irrelevant, just cholesterol level. Relevant. Are we talking traditional testing or what you believe they need to be tested for? It's not. It's not what I believe. Arrest of fact, okay. I love that you're talking to the person. So yesterday I had a phone call with The person who's done all the clinical trials who I wrote my book with Who's one of the authorities who invented LDL particle testing Doctor Bill Crumb off Who's Famous international academician and theology, and he said to me, I asked him Bill. What's been going on. Seems like things are going backwards, not forwards, and he said to me, you're right. He goes. You've been doing it right all along, and that's probably because you're a heart surgeon, and you understand the process. The problem is now that There's instead of one society making guidelines there. Seven society's making recommendations and they're all opposite. So the endocrinologist listen to the endocrinologist. The cardiologists. Choose the American Heart Association of the American College of Cardiology, and they're all focused on treatment. But how can you treat people of you don't identify it? So by measuring LDL particles. Which is basically an M r I the blood, you miss Nobody. You identify every single 100% of the people at risk you identify, so I view it is my responsibility. If you don't want to have treatment. That's great. That's your call, but Let me tell you what the facts are. So last week I had a patient. Call me He dug out his thumb drive from 2013. And he called me he said, You know, I've been thinking about this for so long. After your show with Dennis and you save Dennis's life, my cholesterol's normal, but for some reason, I don't think it's normal and he has particle testing and it was through the roof. So I know he's listening right now because he told me and he's been told all along that he's fine. And he's not so our goal is to identify everybody. And heart disease. People are everyone in three deaths in the United States is cardiovascular disease. There were 951,000 deaths. I think the last thing last time was 2013 from cardiovascular disease. Because we're now going from a population. We're going population based. That's what Kaiser is dealing with populations. Precision medicine. Is almost impossible to do now, but all right, we will be back in a moment. Dr Michael Richmond. Certified heart surgeon, Paladin, MD. MDS.
