Fructose increases fat in the blood following a meal which causes problems notes Kimber Stanhope PhD

Fructose increases fat in the blood following a meal -- increased postprandial triglycerides -- which increases LDL cholesterol, oxidized LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, and other blood readings notes Kimber Stanhope, PhD, a researcher from the University of California at Davis, who has done studies comparing the effects of consuming glucose vs fructose, who was interviewed on ReachMD.com.
Fructose Increases Triglycerides and Cholesterol Levels
Fructose increases triglycerides and cholesterol levels following a meal
People consuming fructose showed:
- increased post-prandial triglycerides (which seems to cause all the problems)
- increased remnant lipoprotein (LDL-like particles)
- increased fasting apolipoprotein B
- increased total cholesterol
- increased LDL cholesterol
- increased oxidized LDL cholesterol increased small dense LDL cholesterol
Fasting Triglyceride Levels Worthless
Stanhope found fasting triglycerides did NOT reveal these problems
Stanhope noted looking at fasting triglyceride levels did NOT reveal these problems, but instead they had to look at triglyceride levels following a meal to see these problems.

The following information is from here.
Dr. Stanhope has committed herself to the further investigation of these novel and important findings.
She first-authored four reviews on dietary fructose which reflects her growth as a scientist, creativity, and ever-increasing interest and expertise in lipid metabolism.
She has written a 5-year NIH RO1 grant proposing more studies in human subjects that will specifically compare the effects of dietary fructose and high fructose corn syrup at low, medium and high doses.
This grant was funded in 3-2008, and under Dr. Stanhope’s supervision studies began in October 2008.
She has also written and submitted an NIH grant proposing to investigate the atherogenic responses of in vitro endothelial cells exposed to plasma from subjects who consumed fructose and an NIH R01 grant proposing studies in nonhuman primates to determine the mechanisms underlying the differences observed in the metabolic effects of glucose and fructose.
During her 13-year tenure in the laboratory of Dr. Peter Havel, Dr. Stanhope has also acquired extensive experience directing research in non-human primates at the California National Primate Research Center (18 projects), rats, and in isolated adipocytes.
Dr. Stanhope earned her master degree in nutrition science and her doctoral degree in nutritional biology at UC-Davis.
