Did a 69-year-old Suddenly “Cure” His Insulin Resistance?

Did a 69-year-old Suddenly “Cure” His Insulin Resistance?

Okay there we go so we’re good there yeah let me check it’s gonna be live in
our there you go we’re now live okay so I just I wanted
to go over a couple of things that we’re covering in the webinars recently I had
for example a patient just last week who didn’t understand how he “cured” his
insulin resistance he’s actually almost full-blown diabetes who he’d had these
OGTTs before and he went to get this one as a follow up he was doing that an
annual follow up and then he he he got these values 96 on his fasting 77
on his one-hour in 69 on his two-hour and you go down and look at his insulin
survey or his insulin components it was 5.5 fasting insulin 27.6 at one hour and 11.8 at after two hours this was a 69-year-old
and again he’d had stable significant insulin resistance / type 2 diabetes for
a couple of years he didn’t understand this and one of the things that I wanted
to bring up I brought this up to the folks on the webinar and it was like
three other guys said the same thing I asked him the question let me just ask
you this what did you do after you took your fasting blood sugar and he said
well I was bored so I started walking well those of us who’ve had a CGM like a
Libre know that we can take a make a significant carb load for example if we
want to do a carb vacation with our kids and they want to take us for pizza or
beer or whatever or for one reason or another you know a celebration you want
to have some of these brick have some birthday cake or whatever now a lot of
people don’t do that they’re disciplined and they say that’s not going to be part
of what I do but others especially well others will say no I want to take some
car vacations every now and then and all you have to do is a gentle walk and a
gentle walk will take the top out of any spike he said you should have seen the
look on this patients face he’s in the Delta Mississippi Delta Area and it was
like immediate reaction he said yes you know what they had in there in a new
building I was very interested I was also bored I spent the whole two hours
walking so what he did was prove to himself that yes you can take a major
carb load and a easy gentle walk will keep those those blood sugars down now
obviously he he and I both also wanted to know a little bit more about what his
actual inherent carb metabolism is without that so he
planning on going back to get another one I just wanted to share that with you
because I’ve got a got a similar reaction with the the webinar folks in
terms of I had I think it was two others maybe three others say oops I just got
the answer to my question as well I thought I had a great a great blood
glucose metabolism and just realized no I went out walking so we’re actually
gonna have a few of the folks attending the webinar go back and and redo this so
again I wanted to make you aware of that Michelle when when we set these up does
go ahead and send some information about eating about a hundred 150 carbs per day
for the the three days prior to getting an insulin survey I think Michelle’s
going to be adding some clear statements about walking during the the event so
just wanted to make make folks aware of that have you think about that when
you’re getting testing so just a couple of points Gianluigi hi Doc from Milan
Italy very very good Milan there was it wasn’t factor five leading factor five
leading was discovered up in the Netherlands there was another it was a
longevity gene discovered near Milan Italy and I I can’t remember I think I
had to do with either a low a low challenge LDL or a high
functioning HDL variant but either way thank you for joining Gianluigi and
thanks for making us aware I see Bart Robinson as well wanted to go ahead and
get a couple of a couple of other points out there first of all we talked about
the webinar we have a Black Friday sale coming up on the webinar it’s instead of
the regular 490 we’re doing 290 I don’t know how often we’re gonna do
sales I don’t want people to get in a in a mode of thinking of you know just
trying to do to wait until we have a sale on something but that’s something
we’ll think about later what we do want to do is get this information out and
available for folks and just a reminder for you if you have any thoughts about
getting the proper the proper testing like a insulin survey a glucose
tolerance test and inflammation panels that’s the that is the key part of the
webinar series what we do is people come in it’s included in the cost of what
they do so for those of you who go ahead and and get the Black Friday 290 event
it’s basically just paying for the labs and for the most part your your
attendance in the webinar is free you get there’s about total it’s looking
like about four and a half hours worth of small group conversation regarding in
individuals and the the actual numbers that they got from these insulin surveys
and and inflammation testing speaking of
inflammation testing I wanted to share this one as well let me just take a
housekeeping issue Cliede is everything showing up correctly not here what are you trying to show I
am showing my inflammation panel now yep you just need to have that in full
screen okay are you able to it’ll it’ll you should pop up on full screen in just
a minute yeah yep I’m seeing it now so in terms of I
wanted to share this about inflammation panels you know I think Bart I keep
giving you credit for it or blame I think Bart was the guy that mentioned
that inflammation panel is not available direct-to-consumer anymore through
Cleveland Heart Lab or which is owned by Quest that’s what gave me the idea to
start offering the webinar again that’s been a major growth item for us we’re
getting a lot of people who are very interested in the webinars again they
get this they get the inflammation testing and the insulin survey that I
just showed you as part of the price for the webinar so what we’re doing is going
through some caveats and how to read these things once you get this
information myeloperoxidase as you may remember is
an actor it’s a it’s an enzyme released by a certain type of immune cells called
polymorphs or neutrophils and what they do is attack and try to dissolve plaque
when they discover it in the artery wall PLAC2 is a is also an enzyme
released it’s released by a different type of immune cell though it’s macrocytes
foam cells that group again there are many different families and types of
immune cells that MPO and PLAC2 or both things that we can measure which
show increased activity in inflammation in artery wall cells now one of the
other tests that we include in our panel on inflammation is CRP C-reactive
protein now if you go to people like the
godfather of cardiovascular inflammation Paul Ridker at Harvard he tends
you’ll see in his study he tends to only just look at C-reactive protein but
so why is he not looking at these other things we’ll show you in just a will
talk about why we should look at these other things in just a minute I’ll show
you my own CRP went out the roof on my last my last activity my last test why
does Paul Ridker not just why does he just get CRP because he’s doing study
he’s doing studies on tens of thousands of people all over the world for example
the CANTOS study where he gave an injectable anti-inflammatory to see if
it decreased heart attack and stroke and sure enough it did it’s not quite ready
for primetime I wouldn’t recommend anybody buy canakinumab the
injectable inflammatory and use it for heart attack and stroke prevention
they’re actually continuing to work on that activity but here’s why I wouldn’t
recommend that you had you gave up almost as many lives where that
anti-inflammatory decreased the body’s ability to fight infections so again
it’s a digression it always comes up when you start discussing the CANTOS
trials and other trials like that let’s get back to the point why do we look at
a panel rather than just one test I usually get my own labs when we’re
getting ready to have an event when we had the Louisville event I got my OGTT
insulin survey other other labs and inflammation panel and look at this for
the first time ever I had an elevated C-reactive protein in fact it was out
the root as I mentioned before a level over 10 what caused that
well I had been to Nashville about two weeks before and I know from talking
with patients I’ve got patients all over the country and several have had it I
caught this cold this sore throat that was going around
it was a tough sore throat C-reactive protein by far has the biggest false
positive rate from a biological perspective and what I mean by that is
C-reactive protein is made by the liver its reaction to any inflammatory process
that’s going on with the body so if your doctor say and I’m looking at C-reactive
protein I’m covering the bases for inflammation be careful and make sure
that if you get an elevated CRP don’t assume that it’s due to your heart that’s the purpose for including PLAC2
and myeloperoxidase and microalbumin creatinine ratio that helps us make sure
the that’s a heart-related issue mine was not mine was a cold here’s a very
very common it’s a statistic I use all the time to help underline this part
we’re going through flu season right now and you should be getting a flu vaccine
I know there’s a lot of vaccine haters I’m not going to go down that path but I
did want to make the point regarding this specific issue if we take a hundred
people today and give them the flu vaccine about over 60 of them will have
a positive C-reactive protein two days from now so again that’s why when you’re
looking at an inflammation on an end of one a single patient basis it’s better
to get a panel because again you’re able to sift through the picture and
understand exactly what’s going on so a little bit of comments for science today
I mentioned the Louisville event the Louisville event was great by the way we
had a blast we had about 50% more than what I’ve seen at these type of events
where patients come in how usually you’ll get like two dozens and this was
closer to three the other thing that was very
interesting about this one was it was a the people got more and more open with
their emotions there were I think half a dozen couples the husband and wife were
both there as is usually the case men go don’t start going down this path of
having cardiovascular inflammation insulin resistance heart attack stroke
positive calcium scores we go earlier than women the women get there and it’s
clearly the number one cause of death for women as well but this is a couple’s
issue and we had a lot of very good discussion about how to deal with this
in terms of your relationship with your spouse and a lot of focus on not just
how to deal with the bad stuff but how to develop the lifestyle issues as we
all know on this channel lifestyle is critical lifestyle if we’ve had some
head-to-head clinical trials comparing like minimal lifestyle activities to
medications and the lifestyle activities were far more important as in three
times more important than metformin for example for just minimal lifestyle
activities so gets back to that statement that you can’t you can’t
medicate you can’t supplement and you can’t do surgery to get beyond a bad
lifestyle it’s all about lifestyle we want to again not not ignore that issue
for the future and I guess given all that you know I’m going to have to make
some comments about what’s today tomorrow just be careful I mean we I’m
not saying I don’t want to be a nudge I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade
for Thanksgiving I’m gonna celebrate and eat more than I usually do as well but
again let’s just remember that it’s fine from a from a lifestyle
perspective to have variation and the amounts that we the types of things that
we etcetera but it’s also a good thing to to remember we want to have we want
to be thoughtful mindful about what we do for Thanksgiving I’m not going to go
deeper into to this slide deck other than to say as I mentioned before in
terms of obesity over half of my patients now are coming to me
I’m almost all of them are coming from the YouTube channel and over half of
them are coming to me that already have some some damage some coronary calcium
some maybe have already had an event but things are looking good they’re greatly
improved labs greatly improved CIMT greatly improved inflammation scores and
I have to remember to ask folks have you been in a position where you lost 30
pounds over the past year – and again yes
yeah channel and Ivor Commons this channel appear to be two of the more
common channels that people start looking at when they when they’re
starting to clean up their lifestyle so I want to thank folks for the
recognition in that area I want to thank folks for the interest in what we’re
doing to improve our lives I’ve mentioned the the Black Friday sale on
the webinars I mentioned the Louisville event one thing I want to tell you is we
do have a have an event scheduled now for Orlando we’re going to be taking
significantly more risk in terms of finances in order to decrease the costs
our goal is to come out with something like a $500 event participation it’s a
one-day event not two days and I think it’s
something like 2,500 for the full participation with coming to the
full-day event getting a CIMT seeing me seeing Janice getting a full-blown
evaluation we’re also having CIMT there as we usually do and again Orlando
February 28th Cliede if you get a minute to post it we also need to post the
other events I think it’s what is it February 15 in San Antonio
David Meinz is doing an event we’ve got a couple other events coming up
so just wanted to get that information out there
Thomas Lavery good morning from Tucson can you tell me the role that
inflammation has on your body’s ability to lose weight well actually it’s a
great question Thomas and they do go hand in hand now there is clearly some
inflammation to weight direction on this issue but here’s the biggest issue the
other direction so when you you’re gaining weight or you have if you look
at the individual on this slide for diabesity think about this fact body fat mass secretes adipokines
there are they are hormones that cause inflammation as well as insulin
resistance so the more of body fat that we have the more information we have the
more insulin resistance we have and it usually goes through the slightly
different cycle body fat mass releases the adipokines the adipokines
cause insulin resistance and diabetes the insulin resistance and diabetes
cause inflammation so I hope that helps deal with that question Earlandfr hi
Doc I missed the beginning which lab produced this report the color makes it
really something to read these that very first report I’m not sure this
patient was coming to me from a it was a builder named dr. that was had
been seeing the patient for a while and they were getting confused about some
stuff they needed to do I am assuming that was a Cleveland Heart Lab which
again is owned by Quest I hope that helps
Parker Reed howdy Dr. Brewer from the Republic of Texas you know I read that
missioner book about Texas and Texas is an interesting state happy Thanksgiving
to you as well Parker Bart Robinson yes that was me so I’m guessing you’re
saying yep that was you that the that causes us to create the webinar series
again I can’t thank you enough I think it’s I will tell you it was a it became
a somewhat emotional event yesterday with some of the folks talking about on
yesterday I’m talking about the the webinar our most recent webinar meeting
was yesterday and some folks started talking about how how much damage we’ve
got going on in terms of insulin resistance full-blown diabetes and how
as a society we’re just not looking at it you know I I had a comment recently a
viewer said Doc I’ve noticed your channel is focusing a lot on diabetes
can we talk about other stuff and it was very interesting the the viewer
described some of his own condition and one of the other viewers made the point
that you know what believe it or not you very well may have insulin resistance or
diabetes yourself and not know it and that was exactly what I was thinking
when I was reading that he was describing some of his clinical
activities he basically he just mentioned the hemoglobin A1c and he
thought based on that hemoglobin A1c he was fine so here’s the thing when when
we we get to where half the people that have insulin resistance or diabetes
there for riding their artery therefore setting themselves up for
heart attack number one cause of death stroke number one cause of disability
number one cause of blindness number one cause of kidney disease when we get to
hatch of those people that are that are going down that path knowing it I will
be quiet currently worried about ten percent so I
think this issue is gonna outlast me even though I’m gonna I plan to live and
at least to my 90s and I plan to work that long too or continue this type of
retirement James Kantor do body fat also secrete estrogens
there’s I guess you’re asking those fat decrease estrogens I don’t think it’s
stored fat I don’t think it does but here’s what happens there’s a there’s a
common perception about that out there what fat mass does is that it pardon me
about the headphones I have to keep these own for Cliede’s watching the the
technical pieces and making sure that I’m not blowing something up here’s one
of the the reasons I think that that question comes up a lot about whether or
not fats create fat mass creates estrogens that man big fat mass absorbs
testosterone so one of the most common well by far the most common reason that
we see in decreased testosterone for men is obesity so again back to back to that
general theme Parker women wear this thing jumped Kinpatu good to good to see the year
here Ken I recently started taking K2 MK7 are
there any markers that I can follow this see if that is helping me I’m not really
aware of any I keep wanting to do a video I saw a video I mean I happened to
find an old clinical trial it was buried in a somewhat arcane journal but it was
about K2 and what they did was they did a trial of K2 on men with young men
there were insulin resistance resistant and they actually saw a decrease in
insulin resistance it was a tiny trial it was in a very obscure journal but
again I think it makes the point that a lot of us are wondering about is there
an MK is there a K2 link with insulin resistance and it does it go through us
do calcium and some of those other other enzymes
I do think they’ve got some bigger trials going on but that’s one of the
things that that I would look for let me get back to answering your question
specifically I don’t know anything that you can watch from a K2 perspective
while we’re talking about K2 I will make one other comment people ask me a lot
how fun how much do I take if you look at your typical typical amount on a on a
supplement jar I think they usually talk about a hundred international units and
right now I’m having a senior moment I can’t remember if it’s international
units or micrograms in that trial it was more like two to three times that amount
that they were given these young men and from my own perspective I’m taking more
like two to three times that amount as well because I’m taking a a pill
supplement Sports Active or something like that I’m trying to start developing
a to to appropriate supplements and hope
to to plan to start offering these supplements so we don’t have to continue
to go through this but what I what I do is I take that supplement pill I also
add natto powder to my morning coffee and after about three or four months I’m
starting to get to the to the point that it doesn’t taste bad
then tastes good does it tastes bad good morning from Arizona good morning to you
Parker Reed question of coffee I read this week where coffee impairs
endothelial function and one study discussed the negative effects on the
coronary arteries recommending tea instead you know that’s only the latest
in maybe decades-long studies about coffee thank you for sharing it Parker
here’s the thing talk about the pendulum swinging back and forth
coffee and whether it’s good for your heart or bad for your heart it just
keeps flipping what do I think well I still drink
coffee I drink decaf I I’m not a good caffeine metabolizer so if I drink
caffeinated coffee I’m just out the roof and way too jittery but I do drink decaf
coffee I’m still on the on that side of the debate saying I think it’s probably
not bad for you Parker Reed I recall Barry Sears the
Zone author recommends against coffee in his first book yes again no question
you’re gonna see a lot of people on that debate
so here’s Cliede’s point about the CIMT events the there’s one in February 28th
in Orlando that I mentioned of February 8th in Birmingham February 15 and San
Antonio now Birmingham and San Antonio are David Meinz and he gives like a half
day of discussion of lifestyle management David is a trained
nutritionist he’s made a lot of progress and focus on macronutrients over the
past couple of years and he shares some of his own story he’s got some family
history significant family history with heart attack and stroke risk as a
nutritionist professionally he’s gone through some of this professional
migration and transplant and transition from just being worried more about
plant-based and and Mediterranean to being a little bit more focused on do
you have insulin resistance or diabetes so he’ll have he’ll have like a half-day
event and then he has CIMT there we have a full day event in Orlando
February 28th with full-blown exam if you want it or a full-blown evaluation
April 4th we have a David is doing one in Detroit April 17th in Central Western
Ohio April 20 of the Central Western Ohio is another one of our events
PrevMed event it’s being given for a couple of dental societies in Central Western
Ohio and that’ll be about a day-long event and
you’ll have the opportunity to get not only the CIMT but a full evaluation if
you wish April 25th in Rochester New York and May 2nd in Memphis so again we
promised we were going to try to get that CIMT out there and available to
folks and that’s what we’re doing Earlandfr have you read Rhonda Patrick’s
comments on that metformin she says the metformin can cause glucose
to rise after aerobic and resistance exercise I haven’t heard that that
comment Ireland I am not completely surprised I know that many of us on
metformin if we’re not having some glucose rise after exercise many of us
do evolve into that so and that’s thank you for making me aware
I look forward to reading about her comments I’m a major Rhonda Patrick fan
a major Ivor Cummings fan and I’ll take a look I like I like some of the details
that Rhonda gets into C Lear I want my doc won’t order hemoglobin A1c because
12-hour fasting blood glucose below 100 oh that’s a problem insulin survey blood glucose 114 after
two hours drinking sugar drink insulin 9.5 with a big question that’s not real
that’s really though when you say insulin survey well what was it one hour
after the drink and what were you doing thanks for for sharing that though
Najeeb Sheikh hi doc from Hong Kong well we’ve had chat I don’t think we’ve had
anybody from Hong Kong yet Najib thank you very much for joining us
for ten plus years my I actually do have a couple of folks that have attended
some things that are in China and we’ve had some discussion about making this
more available in in the Far East China and love to make it available in Hong
Kong so Najeeb says for ten plus years my 71-year-old mom has diabetes high blood
pressure high cholesterol is doing very poorly and I’m worried she’ll have a
major event soon would you recommend a low carb high fiber or low carb high fat or
low fat high carb diet for her when Najeeb I pardon me people and I know I do
this they asked me what time it is and I started talking about how to make a
watch I do want you to be able to find the information for yourself there are
two books I would recommend one by Joseph Kraft and he talks about where he
tested people in there’s 50 60 70 80’s and I believe well it was like that in
another book a Blood Sugar 101 by Jenny Ruhl R U H L Joseph Kraft The
Diabetes Epidemic and What To Do About It and Blood Sugar 101 by Jenny Ruhl
both of them make the point that by the time were sixty years old
over half of us cannot metabolize carbs very well and so therefore we eat
something that has carbs in it and our blood sugar remains too high for way too
long burning the inside of those arteries so
for anybody 50 60 50 you know there’s even
significant evidence about 40s and older be careful with carbs so again I know
you’ll seal so I hope that answers your question I
will say you see a whole lot of stuff we get a whole lot of haters complaining oh
no fat kills you a plant-based and carbs or what save you and they quote quote
Esselstyn and a bunch of other folks that are out there here’s the bottom
line I have no doubt that Esselstyn and a lot of the other folks
that are anti-fat plant-based I was I’ve been plant-based over half of my life
and I and it’s still possible to be plant-based in complete keto if you want
to do that but here’s the thing if you can’t that if you can’t metabolize carbs
and they send sugars float around in your body at a hundred and eighty two
hundred there’s nobody in the world that’s gonna agree they’re having a
blood sugar of 180 to 200 for 20 hours a day is good for you I hope
communicated that effectively early and therefore wouldn’t affect of K2 MK7 show
up on CIMT well that would be the hope there’s this gosh I well here here’s the
thing most people that are interested in K2 or vitamin K2 are interested in it
because it’s a gliders there and something are interested in K2 because they think
that it’s going to decrease calcification in their coronary arteries
the bottom line is yes it may I’m guessing if it does it’s through having
an impact on insulin resistance I’m not taking vitamin K2 with an
expectation that it’s going to show improvements even within a month on my
on my CIMT James Kantor kind of a lot of questions I was hoping to not go a
full hour on these anymore let’s see if we can go through some of these
questions real quick James Kanto do you think vitamin K2 can cause increase
to blood pressure I’m not convinced that it does I’m not worried about that
Healthy Chef Jimmy Show hi hello Healthy Chef Jimmy thanks for joining
Yvette Blythe what factors influence LDL particle count mine is good and hers
is double mine we both eat a keto diet well obviously
maybe it’s not obvious genetics are a big big deal and but here’s the most
common thing one of the most common things that you tend to see with I’m
sorry I’m gonna have to let my little friend in or we’re gonna get a lot of one of the most common problems that you
see with all lipids including LDL is the amount of carbs that you eat if you’re
both eating a keto diet I would suspect at you that there may be a genetic
component there there may also be some lifestyle component there may also be
some differences in the keto diet as well Joe EOS Rx I’m taking life-extension
Super K I’m assuming that’s K2 500 micrograms Cliede hi for everyone we’re
not in the US you can also join the webinar oh thanks Cliede yeah we can also
have the webinar series for folks outside the US you don’t get the labs
the enjoy yeah but you join the small group discussions about lab
interpretation Healthy Chef Jimmy Show muscle metabolizes fat muscle is
very important had a couple of patients over the past couple of days that are
approaching their mid 60’s one of the biggest risk factors for inflammation
and death among people 65 and older is loss of muscle mass so very good comment
Chef Jimmy thank you very much and Najeeb Sheikh thank you Dr. Brewer I’ll
look up the resources John Benda love your channel just did an OGTT okay here
we go fasting 86 1-hour 131 and 2-hour 107
3-hour 85 much better than I thought it would be having a BMI of 47 oh gosh you
know what John you’re one of those lucky guys there’s a lot of folks BMI of 47 57
years old and having that kind of OGTT number here’s one of the questions I
would have John is what were your insulin values during that time period
you’re still young enough to have some significant healthy pancreas and insulin
and here’s the other ringer point that that I haven’t read yet just lost a
hundred and eleven pounds on low-carb obviously you were doing some great
work and greatly improving your health thank you so much for what you’re doing
for yourself and for sharing that with us
Chowceo how does the thyroid affect heart health
my LDL is very high over 300 I had heart palpitations and tightness in my throat
cardiologist said my heart isn’t causing these problems
well hyperthyroid hypothyroid hypo means too little hyper means too much
hypothyroid is one of the most common it’s a very common problem that we find
in terms of risk factors for heart disease the thyroid is sort of like the
gas pedal for the body’s metabolism people that are hyper thyroid tend to
burn their their fat burn their calories lose weight people that are hypothyroid
even maybe the same amount but they have lower pulse rates they they start adding
weight they get fat increased fat stores so especially as we age we start to see
problems where the thyroid begins to to not function as well
now there’s another place very specific place and it has to do with inflammation
and we see it a lot in our folks that have hapto 2-2 haptoglobin 2-2 it’s a
genetic variation it’s it’s a thing that tends to cause significant inflammation
the precursor for haptoglobin 2-2 is a molecule called zonulin
look up zonulin Google zonulin you can see here’s some other keywords
zonulin and leaky gut zonulin hap 2-2 Hashimoto’s
thyroiditis zonulin and inflammation you could also add one of the keywords the
name of one of the key researchers who’s been moving this forward his name is
Alessio A L E S S I O Fasano F as in Frank faz you know he started
off with this whole thing about leaky gut several years ago in people said
leaky got myself included said leaky gut I don’t believe that well it as well it
is very much associated with this genetic variation hap to to have to to
by the way our haptoglobin 2-2 has what we call a 50% allelic frequency now
that’s a very technical term let me just break that down and explain it real
quick because it’s basically at the bottom line it means about
three-quarters of us have at least one hap 2 gene you know you get genes from
your mom you get genes from your dad and so let’s say 50% of the genes out there
are hap 2 or close to that so that means let’s say your mom has a hap 2 and
your dad has hap 1 that means and you’ve got eight children here’s
what’s likely to happen two of them are going to have hap 2-2 now let me because
oh I screwed that up let’s say your dad has a hap 1 and a hap 2 your mom
has a hap 1 and a hap 2 and they have eight kids
two of those kids are likely to have kept two to one hap 2 from the mom won’t
hap 2 from the dad four of the eight kids are likely to have kept one hap 2
like the mom or the dad and two of the kids are likely to have hap 1 hap 1
the whole point behind that is a 50% allelic frequency results in 75% of the
folks having some experience um at least some exposure to that gene that gene is
very very much associated not with just leaky gut not with your session motive
thyroiditis but it’s a major risk factor for those of us with diabetes or insulin
resistance what did
does is it the haptoglobin molecule actually is responsible for cleaning out
beat up worn out hemoglobin when your red blood cells break they get old and
they break and they spill hemoglobin into the blood well what’s the problem
with that hemoglobin is built to carry iron iron carries oxygen so you
basically just got a lot of oxygen and oxygenation occurring where that that
red blood cell has has popped and let that let that hemoglobin out that
appears to create significant increased risk for a heart attack and stroke sorry
if you think that was a bunny trail it’s something you need to be aware of if you
have any interest on it you can look I’ve got about I think half a dozen
videos on hap 2-2 zonulin Alessio Fasano and the significant increased
risk for diabetes I am going on too long let’s just do one other question and
then we will Lowe will sign off Robert Simpson my albumin value has increased
so in every six months for three years slight time increase now in high level
well I’m not that good that’s good well again thank you very much for your
interest hello Abdel-Ilah Benehmed thank thanks for your
interest to all of you I appreciate I appreciate what we’re doing talk to you

    I exercise every day, I alternate very intense wights one day, very intense mountain bike the next. My crp is always elevated is that because of my exercise ?

  3. Thanks very much for these, Dr B! Question if I may and maybe an idea for a future video? There is data being tossed around about statins increasing both cac and lp (a) Have you noticed an increase in your patient population using low dose rosuvastatin? Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks as always- Iā€™m learning so much from this channel and it just may save me or someone I know.

  4. For reference, I am type 3A on the Kraft Insulin Survey and my body can only handle about 10 carbs/meal without raising my blood sugar (bs) level. I speed walk and normally, I have found that walking takes the top off the blood sugar, but only for about 20-30 minutes. Whether or not the effect lasts longer than 20-30 minutes depends upon whether the carbs are in my first or second meal. First meal carbs, I might start at 90-low 100s meal before carbs and 20-30 carbs spike my bs to 130-145. A 20-30 minute speed walk would drop my bs back down to low 100s and it will likely stay there.

    Second meal carbs – 20-30 carbs spike my blood sugar to 130-145. A 20-30 minute speed walk drops my bs back to low 100s, but only for 15-30 minutes.

    The only major difference I noticed is that for meal one, my body has stored insulin that is depleted before meal two.

    Of course, I am an N of 1, but for me very low carb in the first meal leads to much better full day results. Higher carbs in meal one is like using all my paint balls in round one and then going into round two with no ammunition. In that scenario, virtually any meal two carbs spike my bs levels and the only way to avoid a multi hour bs spike is to exercise enough to burn off the entire amount of carbs consumed in the second meal. I am currently working on a formula based upon my weight and rate of speed/exercise to calculate the carbs burned per exercise period. The initial results are promising, but I think lower carb for meal one is the better way to go.

  5. My last HSCrP was .27. How do I interpret that. Is there such a thing as a false negative HSCrP? I am a 68 year old male who is the higher end of overweight per BMI. 188lbs at 5ā€™10ā€. Eat vegan low fat diet. Eat lots of fresh ginger root and take high bioavailability Curcumin. Fasting glucose 91 and HgbA1C is 5.3

  6. Coffee-wise, have been drinking around 7 mugs a day for 40 years without issue. HbA1c and cholesterol all good. Certainly would have done my liver the world of good.

  7. Have done extensive searching on K2MK7 now, read many many papers, especially recent ones. And have no problem supplementing with 750mcg per day, which is the equivalent of eating 100gm of Natto. The reason…as you get older your serum K2 levels drop precipitously, and your ability to recycle K1 to K2 falls. Therefore the health of your arteries and tissues comes under risk. With Vitamin C for collagen the duo helps protect tissue. And It is easy to do.
