|Hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) for highest vs lowest tertiles of triglyceride level (see Table 3 for values), adjusted for age, blood pressure, smoking, hormone use, levels of total and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, body mass index, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein level.|
Notice how the HR falls with increasing time from last meal. As TG's ≥12 hours after eating are a surrogate for Insulin Resistance (IR) and the HR is only 1.04 (95% CI 0.79 - 1.38), this strongly suggests that IR is not a significant factor.
It's been suggested that IR might increase PP TG's in the 2 - 4 hour period due to impaired clearance. According to Fig. 3B in Extended effects of evening meal carbohydrate-to-fat ratio on fasting and postprandial substrate metabolism, TG clearance in healthy men doesn't significantly start until after 4 hours has elapsed. Therefore, an impairment in TG clearance isn't going to make a significant difference to TG level in the 2 - 4 hour period.
Second, the reason why I'm having to repeat myself is due to Cholesterol: Do chylomicrons clog your arteries? (2), where I've been called "my resident lipophobe". As I drink Gold Top milk (5.2g of fat/100mL) and eat pork including belly slices (you know, those strips of pork with a lot of fat on them), I'm being attacked for something that I'm not.
What I'm criticising is dietary extremism. Eating fats in foods is fine by me, but eating sticks of Kerrygold butter and/or dumping loads of butter and/or MCT oil into coffee to achieve "Nutritional Ketosis" is not a good idea. Anyway, here's an amusing spoof on Bulletproof coffee.
