    The Diet and Cholesterol Debate With Dave Feldman and Ethan Weiss

    The Diet and Cholesterol Debate With Dave Feldman and Ethan Weiss

    Chadi re-invites Dave Feldman (@DaveKeto), senior software engineer and entrepreneur, and Ethan Weiss (@ethanjweiss), MD, cardiologist at UC San Francisco, to rehash a Twitter argument on secondary prevention for heart attacks for patients with high LDL. Should patients receive statins or should they not? What does the data show and where is the controversy, if any? How does diet play a role? What about the infamous KETO diet? The guests discuss a couple of realistic hypothetical scenarios with different LDL receptor and metabolism variables. Dave shares an IRB-approved trial that he is leading to better understand high LDL that emerges from Keto and its impact on cardiac atherosclerotic disease.

    This was a high-spirited debate where the host said so little and the guests were arguing respectfully about various views. Will there be a common ground? You must listen to find out.

    Blockchain and Decentralized Data: The Future of Healthcare

    Blockchain and Decentralized Data: The Future of Healthcare

    Leah Houston (@LeahHoustonMD), MD, an emergency physician and founder of HPEC (@HPECid) as well as Evercred, explains blockchain as a decentralizer of physician and patient data and how it will be applied ubiquitously across the healthcare system. Dr. Houston shares and makes the case for how blockchain stores medical data and keeps the ownership in the hands of physicians, offers a solution to issuing and maintaining digital credentials for healthcare professionals, and highlights how physician interest and involvement are crucial to “reclaiming ownership of the profession and our individual identities.”
