    This was a very interesting & useful evening.

    Dr Chatterjee's papers mainly on kidney (mal)function.

    An interesting point is that the saturated fatty acid - palmitic acid - was shown to damage kidney cells, whereas the unsat linolenic acid repaired the damage. Tests carried out feeding diabetic rats with linseed showed the improvement in live subjects.

    I include milled linseed in my almond porridge & almond bread-cake recipes.

    Dr Pantazopoulos stressed the heart protective effect of statins, advising changing statin if one causes side effects (muscle pains) or switching to niacin. (I tried niacin & it still caused muscle pains & it raised my BG by about 10%.

    He showed a chart indicating the most serious risk factors for CHD being raised LDL chol (above 2.5), smoking, diabetes, obesity.
