Peter Attia hosts Benoit Arsenault for Lp(a) deep dive

Post by thumperama »

A typically high quality Dr Attia podcast. Sharing it here for a couple reasons:

1. Lots of folks in the community report high Lp(a) measurements along with their ApoE4 status. Benoit mentioned an
ApoE/Lp(a) association, specifically, “ The apoE allele that increases the risk of heart attacks will also elevate Lp(a) levels”. I was disappointed that they did go into depth about it.

2. There are antisense trials under way that could yield therapies that reduce Lp(a) by 80%.
