Dr Gillette, Med School, Fatty Liver Disease discussed on Mark Bell's Power Project


At the percentage of the population. That's getting that kind of stuff is going up all the time. There's people with all kinds of different issues that they might not be aware of clothing. Insulin resistance here we go. Can you hear us yet. Dr gillette i can hear you loud and clear. Thanks for having me on today. We really appreciate your time today. Can you give us a little background of on your Kind of medical history and kind of how you got into Working with american. Absolutely so. I noticed that you were talking about insulin. Resistance as i joined and That has a lot to do with it. So i've always kind of known that i wanted to be a family doctor. My dad's a family as well and What family doctors are supposed to specialize in as preventative medicine and then also connecting with the individual. So i've always had a passion for that through med school. I was a member of organizations. Like food is medicine and exercise is medicine which have fortunately started catch on As of recently and I noticed that a lot of my colleagues had hashing for similar things especially eerie medical training during med school and even during residency. Doing things like walk with the dock. Where he you'd walk with your doctor. You know saturday mornings. You go exercise together for health reasons. And we'd even write prescriptions for as well on a prescription pad just like we would medication but somehow transitioning to clinical practice that is lost to some degree. And that's how. I ended up with america because merrick seems to emphasize the lifestyle intervention. That are more powerful than any medication that we can prescribe someone. Yeah that's that's amazing. You got you would walk with the patients. That sounds amazing. Yes definitely an interesting dynamic that You can't walk individually with all of have group of several dozen And we'd all do walks. I know that you guys like to do walks inbetween podcast after meals and Nutrient partitioning and all this. And i think that's great. That's catching on as it's an extremely good thing to do for your health. Lovely said about a lot of i was going to say i love what you said about preventative and i think that maybe sometimes these things are kind of lost We're trying to prevent You know as we get older You know things accumulate in the body and overtime you might end up with plaque in your arteries. You might end up with some insulin resistance. You might end up. People sometimes end up with like fatty liver disease. Or there's all these different things that people could possibly end up getting even something like sleep apnea which could be You know correlated to a lot of the a lot of your lifestyle choices There could be other reasons. I guess for it but I think a lot of times we lose sight of the fact that like we wanna try to do. Some of these things as preventative measures. But that's not very sexy or attractive to like do stuff In anticipation of something. That hasn't happened yet though sometimes. Hard to get somebody to get on board with doing proper exercise and having a dietary intervention absolutely logistically. It can be very very very difficult as well. So i understand the light of many physicians. These days especially Primary care physicians or anybody. Primary care we have all these wonderful programs that help incentivize people to do primary care especially in underserved but a lot of that is a stopgap for treating the untreated pathology because of an unhealthy ovulation. There isn't really many programs to have true preventive care before the pathology happens because we're so busy tree all and unfortunately a lot of people that have health insurance. Their health insurance doesn't want to cover What they might deem necessary and then for people that don't it can be even harder so those are two areas where america excels at a lot of people. Maybe they have a job or maybe they have Lower-tier high deductible insurance plan which becoming more and more common And they were really hard. They don't have very much time to get healthcare and might live close to a doctor but they might have good rapport with their primary care. Physician and it's becoming more and more important as the population gets more and more unhealthy as far as labs are concerned. Let me ask you this because most people you know first off they don't even know what type of like laps to get. But what are the types of difficulties.
