"blood glucose" Discussed on The Intermittent Fasting Podcast

"To raw to citrus to raspberry into orange. You pay for shipping. If you don't like it they'll even reimburse you the shipping so literally you have nothing to lose and what's interesting about. This is when we first started our partnership with element. I think they were testing this lake testing if it was going to be cost effective to give it away completely free clearly. It is because they decided to keep doing this so clearly people. Are you know really liking it. Once they try it the that proves it right there. If people keep buying it so emily super happy that the element got rid of your headaches in that orange labor is her favorite and that one is in the back so get it now all right shall we move on to questions yes right. So we have a question from leslie. The subject is splitting. Omayyad one militay up. Leslie says hi. Melanie jen. I've been a very long time one meal a day eater. I've loved your podcast especially learning the power of clean fasting. I recently got a c. Gm oh gosh. I'm so did not mean that. She says an love seeing the data in real time from the data so far. I believe splitting my one meal. A day into two smaller meals will help. My blood glucose levels. I don't want my volume to be much bigger than it is five six hour eating window most likely but need help actually reversing volume eating ritual become so comfortable with. I know it's mostly psychological but probably a bit physiological to and needs. Some practical advice seems simple. Really but would like some motivation from both of you. I know you've talked. Jen about an appetizer. Before your meal and melanie. I think you've talked about some raw bej re meal. But i just like some more ideas. I need a lot of evidence for my brain to prove that number one. This can be fun because it's actually more of a challenge for me than one day and number two. I can do it with ease and mental stillness. Thank you and thank you so much for all of the value. You put out there in the world's thank you leslie. I actually have heard this from people who have been doing the monitoring through of course zoe and also through data driven fasting. People who are using. Cgm's find that they do have better glucose control with slightly longer like you're saying five to six hour window and moving eating into two farther ends of it like eat wait awhile again and you know. Of course we wouldn't know this without cgm's right and it's only been recently that we can get them to try them so we're learning a lot and we're all different of course when it comes to our bodies respond to what we eat but the key for me is that when i opened my window i need to feel satisfied from it as if i try to nibble a little bit and have a little something then. I'm like starving. I tend to eat longer and more because unlike trying to. I don't know it doesn't do it for me. Doesn't satisfy me lately. I'm doing really well opening my window. Have you ever tried daily harvest. Melanie now i know you're a huge fan. I'm a huge fan and if people want to read more about it. I have it on the favorite things tab at john stevens dot com. And they're actually officially sponsoring intermittent fasting stories podcast which is exciting. I've been using them for a while. And they have these harvest bowls and soups. That i love. And i really. I mean my window with that most days like for real it's full of. I think they're vegan. But i'm not vegan. I might add some butter in there or whatever but make it a little more satisfying. But i might not. Sometimes i just do them the way. They are with their soups. I don't usually add as much water as they say. Just a little bit of water exciting a thicker instead of like more of a soup but because there's substantial the ones that i tend to get are the ones that have you know beans or lentils or something like that and a lot of them kale or sweet potato. And so they just are so satisfying. I like them because they're hot. Even in the summer in their their hot that satisfies me the hot veggie centric. It fills me up makes me feel good. And then i'm perfectly fine to wait till dinner and i'm not like going around. You know eating a bunch of stuff out of the kitchen so that would be my appetizer. It's some people would consider it a lunch but to me. It's the soup course so again. You can find it on john. Stevens dot com on the favorite things tab or you can just go to daily harvest dot com and use the promo code. I have stories that works. They've asked us. I think before about sponsoring this show. Well i just really loved them and see. That's kind of like for me. A lot of the companies that sponsor intermittent fasting stories. Start off with. I'm using them like green shop for example and they sponsor this one too and i was like get me green chef united in the company that finds my advertisers and because it starts with es in them and then i'm like i really want this company because i use them. I love them so and also love their smoothies so to what. I'll do seriously when. I this is really what i do. I'll have my bowl and then later dinner with chad and it's often greet chef which is funny and then later to close. Our window will have a daily harvest smoothie and i know that sounds not that. Really it like you know. My mother was just here visiting and we had people over for dinner. So i had to make a big meal for because there were seven people for dinner and i spent so much money on dinner for seven at the grocery store. Buying all the ingredients and then we had much leftover even after the dinner for seven. I just love that. it's like easy. You got the portion. You eat a move on. You don't have left over everything so it my point was that i spend more money at the grocery store than i do with these companies. But that's just the way i shop the curtseys tort like a crazy person i would love. It would be funny to see both of us. I beside shopping at a grocery store. Yeah i'd like. Ooh that looks good. I'm gonna buy that. And then i come home and chad said how much was that. And i'm like. I know i.

The Best Food Choices to Lower Your Blood Sugar

"Talk a little bit about. Maybe the best food choices to lower that number. Yeah so yeah. A lot of our longtime listeners will know we talk about the three main macronutrients. We talk about our fats are. Proteins are carbohydrates are we. Sometimes you call them are pfc so we know that fat. Let's start with those facts like butter. Olive oil bacon grease avocado oil and other good fats. They do not have an effect on our blood sugar. In fact they so they do not raise our glucose number they actually keep. Our blood glucose stabilized in a good place. So i would encourage you to start thinking about with your meal. Start choosing those good fats and incorporating a tablespoon of some of those good natural fats and a customer. We gave some examples of things like butter olive oil avocado oil. That would be about a tablespoon otherwise about a half of an avocado is about the equivalent of a tablespoon of oil or butter And same thing about two tablespoons of peanut butter or almond butter. Those nut butters. That'll get you right in that same ballpark so we want good fats to anchor those blood sugars we want some protein in their protein affects the blood sugar a little bit but usually not very much so adding three to four ounces of some meat fish eggs at that the fat so maybe that's a couple of eggs those two ounces of pork or turkey sausage that we mentioned earlier and then we have our carbohydrates so all carbohydrates do break down into sugar in the body but some do so more than others some do so faster than others so our vegetables or or the things that we pull out of the ground tend to have a much lower effect on our blood sugar so if we combine say some of that sausage and had cooked that up in some butter put some green beans on that plate and maybe a half a cup of carrots or half a cup of black beans or half a cup of some of those leftover roasted potatoes. That's just enough to give you that. Normal blood sugar again. Give you that little boost in energy bump up that blood sugar just a little bit but not too much so that you're spiking blood sugar or that you're crashing later

The Concept Of Metabolic Flexibility With Robb Wolf

"Let's dive a bit deeper into metabolic health in general. I would say the us stephanie. Facing metabolic health. Dem's it's become so so tough that you know. Diabetes is on the rise diabetes type two and obesity is on the rise and aloft. It can be let back to metabolic flexibility or the lack of it. Maybe can talk about more about the concept actually pollick expolit the actually means and why it is important. Yeah being metabolic flexible in in kind of a textbook definition really speaks to the ability to use a variety of different fuel sources that mainly really carbohydrate and fat though although by extension ketone very seamlessly with with little drama little difficulty really not a big change in in performance or perception. My wife is an example of somebody who's very metabolic flexible. She can go kito goes in. She goes out no headache. Lethargy no problems She can eat a fair amount of carbs and doesn't suffer. You know a really crazy blood. Sugar excursion she doesn't get like blood. Sugar crashes unless she really you know if she a ghost for the extra large mexican meal of beans and rice and tortillas and you know and right and then she can feel kinda rough from that like she can overdo it but she needs to really try to do that and in researching some material for my second book wired to eat. We did some side by side. Comparisons where i would eat say fifty grams of carbohydrate from white rice. She would eat the same amount. She's a good thirty or forty pounds lighter than i am but she would still her blood. Sugar would over a two hour period of time. Never really get above about one hundred and fifteen hundred twenty you know. Throughout the course of that whole experience was mind would top off round one. Ninety one ninety five. I would then suffer. Really cloud rafic crash blurred vision cognitive problems. I mean i was. I was kind of a disaster on that. And so this was you know it was cool in that it gave a little bit more concrete explanation for what i'd seen clinically. Which is that. This person seems to run great on carbs. This person doesn't and you know here's there's kind of like an actual yeah and just to be clear. You're not diabetic. North korea pre-diabetic new. But i think if i ate carbs pretty consistently i would get there rather rather rapidly. Yeah or or the minimum. I would suffer a lot of deleterious health effects. Light like a a vision problems and and whatnot. Yeah yeah so. How do you explain now. Like metabolic flexibility. Like how does it cure or is it just something that some people have in some. Don't i not entirely sure. I think that there's multiple factors at play here for sure. Genetics is a piece of this. People who have more of the emily's gene more frequency of the emily's gene seemed to do better with carbohydrates. They seem to digest them better but they also have a more favourable insulin response. It seems to keep the insulin. Or the blood glucose levels within tighter parameters and. Here's an interesting thing that i For me it was kind of this. This pretty deep inside. I don't know if it is for other people but an individual like myself to have good blood glucose levels after he reasonably low carb like probably below fifty grams of total carbs. Day sometimes more. Like if i'm really active or whatnot but it in that situation. Abbott pretty consistent blood glucose response throughout the day. People were very metabolic flexible or very insulin. Sensitive they looked like i look like eating significant amounts of carbs. And that's really the big difference there in the people who eat significant amounts of carbs and don't suffer the blood sugar crashes which then lead into the over over consumption of food writ. Large i think is where we kind of see the distinction between folks Twenty years ago. I was definitely a bit indie. Insulin hypothesis camp. I think over the over the course of time. I've i've come to the conclusion to. Yeah chronically elevated. Insulin levels are definitely a problem but insulin. In and of itself is not the primary driver of of Say type two diabetes and insulin resistance and whatnot you kind of a classic gary tops approach I don't buy into that but at the same time ni- fully on board with say like it fits your macrophages crowd. That will just say so. Long as composition doesn't really matter you just need to keep control of your portions and a free living world free living population. How you keep control of portions is really important. Not that many people have the discipline or the neuroses to do basically like a figure competitors lifestyle like that. That's a big lift for a lot of folks and so finding a way that people can spontaneously match caloric intake and output. I think is kind of where the ticket is. And that's where people kind of find own their their metabolic flexibility optimum belay yet. He asked a really good question. I did a poor job of answering it at you. Know what is metabolic flexibility. What goes into a defining it genetic so definitely a big piece. The gut microbiome appears to be a big piece. The caveat to that is we know it's important. I don't think very many people have any idea what to do to improve that. Like probiotics works for some people pre baddeck fiber work for others and for some people all of those absolute disaster and do nothing. So i think there's a lot of Charlatanism that goes around the gut microbiome. We know absolutely that. It's important. But i think the only thing that we can really hang our hat on is if we do something and has a clinical outcome of improving gut else and improving metabolic flexibility. That's great but we're not really at a great predictive place with that like i. I think there's a lot of goofiness that on the testing and whatnot. There is some lesser known or considered things like iron overload particularly in in men or postmenopausal women excess iron accumulation in the body is a pro oxidant in that pro oxidative status can increase inflammation and increased inflammatory state Degrades insulin sensitivity and by extension the Metabolic flexibility so. There's some big picture things that we know. Feed into metabolic flexibility and again. I think that we have burying degrees of control over those different lever.

Fitbit adds blood glucose tracking to its connected app

"Hey there listeners. it's brett molina and welcome back to talking tech my co host. Mike snyder is off today. If you own a fit the popular wearable that you probably see a lot of people have on the fitness tracker or smartwatch. If you own one of those you might see a special new update coming up on your smartphone. App fitbit announced earlier this week that they are going to offer and new feature that will let users track of their blood sugar level using the devices smartphone app. So here's basically how it will work. When you go into the app you'll see an option there to track your blood sugar level you could set a personalized range to track when you're above or below whatever the appropriate level is that you've set you can also add a reminder so that your fit bit can give you a nudge or your smartphone that can give you a reminder to track your blood glucose level you will still need to manually input your blood sugar level within the app itself. The fitbit device like your smartwatch. Your tracker is going to track it for you. So basically what will happen. Is you have a separate meter actually. Check your blood sugar than you could log it into the fitbit app. You can also do this with the imported from another devices smartphone app. So the one touch glucose meter for example has a separate app. If that's logging data through the meter using that app you can import that over two fitbit and keep track of it that way. It's one of several features. That fit has added over the course of the last couple years where they've wanted to really beef up the amount of health information that you can access either through your device or through the app itself and we're also seeing to now that the company is owned by google. We can fully expect them to expand. Further

What is The Healthiest Wine to Drink?

"Will. Hey everybody one of the most common questions that i get is what kind of alcoholic drinks will kind of wine. Can i drink. When i'm doing a low carb kito genyk diet and of course as a doctor. I recommend drinking a lot of alcohol. Obviously alcohol can have a lot of health problems however what. I was surprised to find out years ago. Is that wine. Actually if it's done properly if it's cultivated rights and fermented properly can actually be extremely healthy and this is great news. I means that we can drink in moderation and actually improve our health and so the wine that i drink. I'm gonna go over in this podcast. And i'm gonna show you why i drink this wine and so i think we've got to realize is that there are many health benefits actually drinking wine. These are well researched benefits lot of science out there about how it improves. Your triglycerides lipid levels. It reduces your risk of dementia reduces insulin resistance would actually can help improve blood sugar stability and insulin sensitivity which also get stress off of our blood vessels and allows us to have better circulation house. Control blood sugar which reduces our risk of heart disease cancer so a lot of good research. That's out there now. This drinking in moderation is not you know drinking a bottle of wine every day. This might be drinking like one small glass a day or Few times a week. Personally i drink wine probably once maybe at most twice a week Like maybe two glasses a week. Max and i do that we My family we celebrate a sabbath usually friday night which is really when jesus celebrated the sabbath and we'll oftentimes have wine will blessed and and drink it and we drink a certain type of wine that does not impact my blood sugar. That does not have additives and preservatives. And things like that. And i feel great drinking it. There's no hangover. There's i just feel really really good drinking it. And actually i've seen on. My continuous blood glucose monitor that actually helps control and stabilize my blood sugar levels as well. Now there's a couple of great benefits with wine great nutrients i should say one is resveratrol which is a poly phenolic bioflavonoids antioxidant. That's produced certain plants and founded foods drinks in particular. It's found in red wine right. It's called the french paradox. right and france. They drink a lot of red wine and people tend to live longer and one of the reasons is because of this compound resveratrol and that's really what got scientists to study at. They said there's gotta be something going on here and so they looked at the different compounds in red wine and they found reservoir trawl and they found that it has a great impact at improving. Might conjul health house reduce oxidative stress throughout the body to support the immune system our brain scan Keeps inflammation under control imprisoned circulation. So a lot of great benefits to it and that we find wine. We also have anthocyanins so dan in believe it. Spanish means blue right and So basically it's kind of a blue pigment or purplish pigment. And we find it in things like blueberries red onions grapes purple broccoli and cauliflower red cabbage cherries right these things. That have the kind of purplish war.

People who eat chili peppers may be less likely to die of heart disease and cancer, research shows

"People who eat chili peppers. Maybe less likely to die from heart disease or cancer, and they live longer than those who don't eat them, according to new research. It will be presented at the American Heart Association's scientific sessions 2020 next Tuesday. Previous research had found that chili peppers can have anti inflammatory antioxidant anti cancer and blood glucose regulating effects. You, too, cap season. That's the main chemical compound and chili peppers that give the food it's spiciness. But this particular research analyzed more than 4700 studies. From five leading global health databases, which led to us a major conclusions. Where you on the chili pepper spectrum you go. Yeah, I can't stay like super super, like, you know, comedy heat where it's like this is made just to make people miserable, But I like a good spice. If you're not a fan of chili peppers, though, one doctor says you shouldn't force yourself to eat them. Data isn't quite that strong yet. If you already eat chili peppers, and you like them, this encourages that we're not going so far as to give recommendations yet. But I think this at least perhaps provides incentives or encouragement for people to give chili peppers ago. Just goes to show that diet has a big role in your overall health. Well, no kidding.

We're talking with Chris Killem, the medicine hunter. Now in this new green TC, our formula from purity. It's really about the research share with us. Some of your favorite studies in the Headlines on the curcumin that we didn't get to you. I know this is one of your favorite ingredients for joint comfort and even for brain health. Well, I especially like the liver, protective, heart, protective and joint modifying properties of this stuff. The liver is our greatest detoxifying organ And we know that we're constantly bombarded by toxins in the environment. In fact, Blood. Studies show that newborn babies contained 200 industrial pollutants in their blood at the time of birth, So we need a functioning super healthy, very strong liver. We might not think about Oliver's that much, but we need that. And we know that curcumin protects the liver Detoxified deliver. It keeps it strong. From a cardiac standpoint, it's highly beneficial for the heart. It's very good for maintaining healthy cholesterol and healthy platelet levels. And from a joint standpoint, we have innumerable studies showing overall improvement in joint health and relief and stable inflammatory activity. Better joint mobility as a result of taking curcumin. I like the brain protective studies as well, You know, I think everybody wants a sharper, clearer mind and curcumin delivers all this. So I regarded as one of the single most important things that you can put in your body and I'm very well aware path that most people are not going to eat enough raw tumeric route. To get the benefits that they should and that they can get from a concentrated curcumin extracts. I want to remind people that then call now to get started with a free bottle of green tea CR from purity products. This is their unique green tea formula with the curcumin and the resveratrol. Ifyou're free bottle today, just pay for 95 for shipping call now. Operators are standing by 1 804 997505 again 104 997505 right back to the show, Chris. I don't want to get too technical here. But these anti oxidants in green to your classified is Polly females, and they really are super powerful and well respected by scientists. But in this green tea CR formula, there's more. It's got two green tea. It's got the curcumin the risk. Very troll that we talked about, plus grape seed extract, pine bark, bio flavonoids, vitamin C. Can you talk to me about this array of really super antioxidants and Polly Finals that you've put in the formula? Well, yeah, I won't say that. We kind of went over kill, but I will say that we really, really developed inefficient, comprehensive program here. Great seed extract and pine bark extract. Both contain a group of highly specialized antioxidant compounds that not only do much of what I've already described But also enhance the physical integrity of tissue in the blood vessels in the skin. So we put those in there for extra boost in anti oxen and activity, but also for a specific type of activity that isn't as much addressed by the green tea, the curcumin and the resveratrol. The bio flavonoids and hands. The overall activity of vitamin C and vitamin C itself is one of the most important nutrients that we can possibly take in. So I would say that we were very, very thorough. You know, when we went through what could be in this product? We said, you know what would happen if we put in great seed extract? Pine bark extract, bio flavonoids and vitamin C. We realized that we would have an utterly superior formula and just to reiterate path. I want people to experience dynamic health. I want people to feel great. This formula. The green tea CR will make you feel great, and that's the purpose of it. Chris, I love this green tea CR combination. Four million. Remember the C R. Stands for curcumin and resveratrol love that with this complimentary bottle today, our listeners could get started for free. That's great value. What would people expect to pay if they bought all of these separately in this store? Well, I think if they bought high quality products that contain these ingredients, they'd be into it for about 75 bucks, so possibly even 80 so they'd wind up spending appreciably. More than they're going to spend on the green tea CR formula, and they still wouldn't get the grape seed extract. They still wouldn't get the pine bark extract the bio flavonoids of vitamin C and Chris What kind of results can people expect to see? What could they expect to feel once they start taking this formula? I think that people will feel greater joint mobility and comfort. I think they'll feel more energy because these ingredients also helped stabilize and maintain natural, healthy.

Digital Tools to Measure Blood Sugar & Metabolic Health with Dr Casey Means

"Well, hey everybody, welcome back to the dr. Jockers functional nutrition podcast and you guys know that one of my favorite topics to talk about is blood sugar insulin and metabolic health and we had a great interview recently with Dodge van Dyckman. We went in depth on that and this is almost like a follow-up to it because we're going to talk about really the personalized approach to really looking at your blood sugar and how it's responding to the foods that you're consuming and so my guess is dr. Casey means she is the chief medical officer at levels and she is a Stanford trained physician again, chief medical officer and co-founder of the metabolic whole company levels, and she's the associate editor of the international Journal of disease reversal and prevention and he can find more information about her at levels health.com and we're going to talk about what the best food. Are for blood sugar management for metabolic health and how that could be variable depending on how your body is responding to the foods that you consume. We're talking about personalized medicine. So dr. Casey that joining us here. Thank you so much for having me. Dr. Jockers. So happy to be here. Well, yes for sure and I've heard of several of your interviews on other podcasts and you really do a great job of explaining how important blood sugar stability is and you know, this this new technology that we have now continuous blood glucose monitoring. And so what I love to do is start with your story and you know how you went from Stamford and trained in in medicine to now kind of branching out into a functional nutrition Integrative Medicine approach. Yeah. Absolutely. So like you mentioned I trained as a medical doctor conventional medicine. I trained at Stamford did my undergrad and Med medical school there and then I went on to become a head and neck surgeon. So I was deep in the surgical birth. Hold for about five years and in my role as a head and neck surgeon, which is really treating the conditions of the like your nose and throat. So an ENT surgeon something I noticed was sort of hitting me back, you know after about five years, like wow pretty much all of the conditions that I'm treating are inflammatory in nature. They're all related in some way to chronic inflammation. So some of the things you think about are like sinus infection, which is inflammation of the sinuses and chronic ear disease, which is inflammation of the eustachian tube the tube that connects the nose to the ear you get, you know inflammation in that tube and you get past building up in the ear, you've got Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which is inflammation of the thyroid you've got things like vocal cord granulomas which are inflammatory masses of the vocal chords and then lots of head and neck cancer, of course, which we know cancer has very much relationship between inflammation. So it was really interesting to me sort of step back and say wow. This is sort of a very common theme between a lot of the conditions that I'm treating and in some way it didn't make total sense wage. That we would be treating those conditions with surgery because chronic inflammation is fundamentally a issue with how our immune system is responding to perceived or real threats in in the environment in our bodies and thoughts were more were learning about how chronic inflammation is in many ways really rooted in our everyday exposures. So what we eat the toxins were exposed to in our food air and water, you know, how much sleep we get the stress in our lives how much or how little exercise were getting our microbiome all of these things have a direct relationship to chronic inflammation. So I'm treating it with this sort of very reactionary invasive more anatomic approach with surgery, you know, there was some sort of missing missing link there and certainly surgeries are really important in beautiful art but phone no other conditions really rooted in chronic inflammation. It kind of got me thinking there might be a better way to approach us. What could we be doing what sort of really personalized dietary and lifestyle interventions really foundational help to really quell bath. Chronic immune response. Well that threat the body is sensing and potentially keep Patients Out of the operating room. You're not going to prevent all surgeries, but I certainly think there's some low-hanging fruit we can do to help minimize the severity of the disease is and hopefully never have to get have them get that really end of the line where they see me in the or going under the knife, which is a really serious serious thing. So that really got me on this journey of trying to understand the root cause of disease and that led me to functional medicine and so I actually stepped away from the operating room got training with Institute for functional medicine and really started thinking of disease a lot differently. I started seeing things much more as symptoms and diseases often being the branches on a very similar true and that tree that we that that sort of route that that connects a lot of seemingly disparate diseases often comes down to things like inflammation and even deeper Inflammation metabolic dysfunction this was talked about so beautifully on your episode recently with dr. Bed big man who is talking about metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, but was so interesting is that you know in our country. It's it's not that about 88% of Americans have met have signs of metabolic dysfunction that was shown in a study a couple of years ago from UNC that 88% of adult Americans have at least one biomarker of metabolic dysfunction and metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, which are kind of two sides of the same coin really can directly feed into inflammation. So it's all really created and what's sort of hopeful about this is that those are things that are readily modifiable with smart choices in and how we live and what we expose ourselves to so became really interested in that and and really this system the network biology movement, which is really stepping back and saying, you know, we've we've conventionally looked at diseases in in conventional medicine. As isolated silos, you've got depression. You've got obesity. You've got diabetes. You've got prostate cancer. You've got IBS and these are all things that are different and we treat them separately with totally different with medications a totally different mechanisms. But when you step back and you use sort of more advanced research techniques, like whole genome sequencing and proteomics, how can we actually see? What are the molecular links between diseases and you create a web a network a system and that's really the root of systems and network biology. And when you start doing that you see these connections and I think the future of Iraq and its really treating conditions at that level at the connections between diseases cuz when you do that you can you know, hit a lot more birds with one stone that's sort of a negative metaphor, but you know what, I mean, it's it's it's got instead of playing whack-a-mole. You're really you can have multiple various effects with with some single interventions effect that root cause physiology. So my career really moved

Continuous Glucose Monitors

"Hi everybody and welcome. This is episode number one, hundred, eighty, one of the intermittent fasting podcast I'm melanie avalon and imagine Stevens Hi everybody. How are you today Jen I am fabulous I am just immersed in all sorts of amazing data and learning about myself until like to elaborate I would. Melanie knows because she knows what I'm doing but for readers of Fast Feast repeat and even readers of. Fear you know I've been talking about personalized nutrition since I saw that famous Ted talk that I talk about with Dr Erin Seagal I saw it I twenty seventeen and it literally changed my life to understand that we all have personalized responses to foods and some of it's based on our genetic background. But a lot of it is in our gut microbiome and really just hormonal health in general. In fast, Feast repeat I talked about the work that Tim Spector is doing. He's my favorite Gut microbiome researcher from the UK and he had a study called the predict study, and then the predict to study which some of my friends did a year ago and I am now participating in the third round of this predict three it's with an APP called Zoe and he's one of the collaborators with. It but as part of the study for the past seven days I've been wearing a continuous blood glucose monitor that they sent me and I have to send it back, which is so sad because man is an opening to see how my body responds to different foods with my blood glucose. So I can see you know what it's doing all during the day all during the night up 'cause day. On how it responds to foods I'm so happy to report that I'm not surprised the foods that I thought that worked well for many guess what they work. Well, they do. So are you eating some of their stuff and your stuff? Well, I had to do that for two days. There were two days where I had to start the day eating these muffins that they sent me Oh, my Lord. Yuck. For listeners, we wanted to record the podcast earlier, which was like I can't record a podcast after eating the muffin. Hours right. I mean I was predicting that it was before I had even eaten the muffins but I had a feeling because I had to eat them in the morning cacique. You couldn't have anything before the muffins except water. Wake up in the morning and drink black coffee. So I had to eat the muffins and then wait four hours and then eat the muff a there were actually different muffins and then wait two hours and then I could you know have real food the first day of that opened at eight am and I never eat at eight am even on vacation you know if I'm going to have breakfast, we usually end up doing more of a brunch. So I can't think of the last time I've had food at eight am but I had to eat. I think it was three muffins that had been frozen and then I microwave dumb and the first round of muffins I think they're testing fat clearance like how quickly your body clears out fat after you eat a high fat meal. These were high fat muffins. There are high fat. Because, you could tell by reading the ingredients list you would not have probably eaten these muffins. going. To say. This is not a melanie study. No, you probably wouldn't have eaten the muffins but the first ingredient was like safflower oil or something Oh. Gosh. I know I, know I know but I ate them muffins than I was so crabby for those three hours 'cause they weren't satisfying at all. You know if I could put some butter on there or some strawberry jam but no I had to they tasted like a mix between a cornbread muffin and pound cake. But with less flavor said, then the the second set of muffins they were like gluten free cash I duNno? low-fat Muffins. But My my blood glucose responded great to both sets them up I had to do this blood test or I had to like squeeze out all this blood on this card and send it off to be anyway they're going to test the. I think my fat clearance because you had to do a certain number of hours after that, and it gives you a lot of information, but I also had to send an poop sample. That's right up my alley. Yeah. So that was interesting. It was a little more hardcore than the one I did for the American gut project. I won't go into details, but it was interesting. Let's just say and then I took them all to the post office and mail them in. Also. Fun, this guy like what's on your arm it was continuous blood glucose monitor and you know and I thought that was very bold question to ask a stranger at the post office but I explained it. But I should've said this is poop in this box, but I didn't. is putting it on hard. It was actually so very easy. It has the ability shared, but I did it you stick it to the back of your arm and you just in this little thing and you just click and then it just POPs. said it was easier than the finger stick. Okay two. Brands of CGM I'm betting great now. I haven't done either one yet. Well, this information is just so important I think because it's it's showed me. Like I had one meal that I've eaten so far that did not work very well for me. It was the only one and it was a flat bread topped with like a a lemon ricotta and then sauteed Brussels sprouts and then like Parmesan cheese and then a hot honey that one shot my blood glucose up higher than anything has so far probably the honey. But when I've eaten potatoes when I've eaten rice even. Toast. With egg on top. I. Have a very slow steady. Roz than a slow steady back down. I think that flat bread didn't have a lot of fat with the I mean had some fat but I probably normally have more fat with my carbs. So it just kinda spiked to me right up.

"blood glucose" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK

"They found Lord Blood glucose by up to 20% replacing potatoes but lentils lord blood glucose by 35%. So in lentils are good. You know, lagoons. They taste good, big numbers, and they're really good for us. So we want to make sure you know about that. So if you're just joining us, I'm Judy Brooks. And I'm Roy Walking Hurst. You're listening to healing quest, and we're updating you on natural nutrition news, including research about the power. Of mushrooms. A recent study has found mushrooms to be the best source of two antioxidants. Ergo, thiamine and glued if I own that help fight cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Well, mushrooms, you know, also deliver nutrients like potassium, which helps keep blood pressure and check. That's a really good thing, along with protein and calcium and iron and antioxidants. They're just they're just loaded with the goodies. And if you're wanting a good way to get more vitamin D in your diet, here's a good idea. Put white mushrooms in the sunlight for about 30 minutes. And it will increase their vitamin D content that that was very clever, Very fun Tip and you heard it here on healing quest. Don't forget that. You may remember that. Last week, we talked about research from Trinity College in Dublin. And the University of Liverpool in the U. K showing that a vitamin D deficiency is linked to developing a more severe case of covert 19. So I guess keeping vitamin D at a normal level, and your system is really important to do right now, because as many as 40% I think they set of Americans are deficient in vitamin D. This is kind of surprising because vitamin D is produced when sunlight hits our skin, and that's why vitamin D is called the such I'm vitamin. And even though we need as little as 10 minutes a day of sunlight to get our natural vitamin D Millions of us don't do that. So, the study's author says most people were probably need a daily supplement to maintain a normal vitamin D level. By the way, If you don't like taking pills, vitamin D is nothing to worry about. It's a tiny little thing I know because I take one every day, along with a couple of vitamin K two sevens because scientists have also recently found At the level of vitamin K and R system is also linked to how well we can come back over 19 vitamin K two works with vitamin D to support stronger bones, along with heart and brain and lung health. One tip here. Make sure you get vitamin K to seven because that's the all natural form of vitamin K, and we have one more note to pass along today on the topic of staying safe in this pandemic time. It's a hygiene suggestion involving your cellphone. A study published a while ago in the journal Germs, reports that some cell phones have as many as 17,000 germs lurking on the outside..

Concerned About Prediabetes and Diabetes?

"Part of your body. As you just heard the list so every body's system. You have and your brain. Diabetes can cause low moods, poor memory, weak blood vessels, fragile bones, kidney disease, just to name a few, but truly the list does go on, and on the bottom line, keeping your blood glucose numbers in the normal range of eighty to one hundred is critical to maintaining good health and avoiding the potential risks that Brittany just mentioned. An F.. Half the population has either prediabetes type two diabetes. You really need to understand what diabetes is an how to prevent it so you should know also what to eat, but what to avoid, and if you have diabetes, or if you are concerned about getting type, two diabetes will also start by talking about what's actually going on in your body. If you have type two diabetes, that's right so first of all diabetes is a disease in which the body cannot get sugar or glucose into your cells for energy. The pancreas makes insulin so insulin is a hormone that helps deliver glucose to your cells. And we know your body needs a certain amount of glucose for energy, but those high glucose levels greater than one hundred twenty six. That falls into the diabetes level type, two diabetes level, and can cause the health problems that Brittany talked about earlier. The Kidney Disease Heart Disease Depression Alzheimer's many many more. And as a Dietitian, I frequently have clients. Tell me my mother has diabetes. My grandmother had diabetes, so they often think it's a genetic problem in yes, genetics can play a role in getting diabetes, but the truth is our lifestyle. Habits actually play the biggest role in whether or not. We get type two diabetes. That those poor lifestyle habits can lead to insulin resistance, which is the most common cause of type two diabetes.

How COVID-19 Shines A Light On Our Broken Food System with Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian

"We want to talk today about what seems to be unrelated to Cova Nineteen which is an infectious disease but it's diet and chronic disease and you wrote an article with the former secretary of agriculture. Dan Glickman that was posted on. Cnn entitled Can Diet Flatten the curve for covert nineteen and it's sort of like How does that even make sense? So we've heard all about these ideas of fighting. The curb was social dissing handwashing washing and contact tracing an isolation testing but your article presented a very different view about how we can use food and nutrition and specific nutrients to actually help us address. This pandemic so. Can you tell us why you wrote this article and why this is more important than ever to address these issues? Yeah I think markets really clear that that to those of US following this crisis that cove nineteen has really laid bare these incredible challenges. These incredible disparities is incredible unreasonable aspects of our food system. Are there so many ways that that covered nineteen influenced student? Nutrition and nutrition Kobe. Nineteen back up at at all. Just go through quickly and we can go about each of them so you know. One is immunity the actual immune response to Cova and then you actually the blunting of the excessive inflammatory response to cove. We can talk about nutrition and actually the immune response to is is hunger and food insecurity which of course 'cause incredible human suffering with this economic shutdown lost wages at schools being closed but also we know from long clinical experience malnourishment further predispose people to infection. So that's the site and that doesn't mean and that doesn't mean skinny and wasted away could be that your nutrient deficient which is really common in America. Absolutely absolutely. There's one call hidden hunger. People look like they're getting food but there's hidden hunger because they're not getting the right the right nutrients and what's paradoxical is the most obese are often the most nutrient deficient when you look at their numbers. Right it's kind of interesting. Yeah and then. These other aspects of Kobe crucial to to you know of just quickly mention our third. The incredible intersections supply chains and food. Waste and getting food to people we. We don't really have a national food system even global food system. We have this fractured supply chain. That's now becomes you know very very dire And then I think one of the one of the most important things for really thinking about covert long term. Because this is going to be with us for for some time. Many ears is the incredible relationship between for Metabolic Health Diabetes Hypertension Heart Disease Obesity and poor outcomes with Cova. The the latest analysis from New York which has had the most cases in in the United States showed that with each of those conditions diabetes hypertension of city. There is about two or three full higher risk two to three times higher risk of hospitals. And if you put those three things together lots of people have diabetes hypertension and obesity. There be sixteen fold higher risk of hospitalization. And so it's very it's very plausible. And we're modeling this now. It's very plausible. That you know. If we had a metabolic healthy population job it would be much much less severe. And so you know thinking about nutrition and immune response malnourishment and hunger and food insecurity disparities very high rates and african-americans very likely related to nutrition in a major way the challenges to food systems and supply chains food waste and then metabolic health. You know these are all things that that you and I and others who study food at about that that food nutrition or a dire challenge and an incredible opportunity to improve the health of the population but Kobe. Nineteenth really liked taking a you know a knife and slice down dessert that was hiding immediate objects and so you know if five years from now we're back to where we were a couple years ago and there's no improvement in our food system quality of the food the way we get it to people in science that we have to address questions. I would be just devastated. I would be so disappointed that we haven't realized the opportunity here to fix the food system. So filming in the straight. What you're saying is that if you have chronic diseases and multiple chronic diseases that your risk of being hospitalized sixteen times higher that if you're metabolical unhealthy more likely to get sick because your immune system isn't working and then only twelve percent of us are actually healthy so that means if we actually had a healthy population that was eating a diet that created metabolic health instead of the opposite. Which we're doing now that this may just be a bad flu and we wouldn't have full hospitals in a society that shutdown and trillions of dollars in economic losses. All the evidence supports that you know. Of course we can't do a randomized trial and wave a wand and make everybody know about healthy to test that but all the evidence suggests that you know as you said. I'm based on national data. Only twelve percent of adults in this country are metabolic Healthy that's just taking things like waste. Your Conference Blood Glucose blood pressure cholesterol. It just measure those things. Only twelve percent of adults or metabolic be healthy and most of those people in their twenties right. You haven't yet really had a lifetime of for die in for lifestyle. And so the vast vast majority of American adults over forty are metabolic late unhealthy and given these associations you know as I mentioned even just one of these risk factors. You're doubling or tripling the risk of hospitals ation and you start piling up together In terms of risk of death is in so few debts especially under age. Seventy unless there's at least one of these other conditions. Yeah and so. It's very plausible. That if we had a very healthy population you know. Instead of a twelve percent medically healthy. We had twelve percent metabolic the unhealthy. What if nine of were metaphor healthy then in nineteen would be a far far less severe disease? Many many fewer hospitalizations fewer deaths. We wouldn't be shutting down the economy we wouldn't have. These hospitals overloaded our healthcare providers but insulted dangerous petit and working chefs on an and. What's really important here is that we can actually fix this now in real time. And so you know. It doesn't take years and years and years to reverse diabetes or to reverse hypertension or Reverse for metabolic health. Yeah does take years and years to change. Wait for many people but metabolic health. Whatever your weight. We can pretty rapidly improving. Edibala cal over months sometimes even shorter. But so yeah so the country. In addition to the things that we're doing social distancing and testing we should be launching a national campaign to improve the way we move and eat to improve our metabolic health

How to Tell If You're Really Hungry

"How hungry are you right now? Were you already thinking about it before I asked? You well now that I mentioned it. Are you hungrier than you were a minute ago? Have you ever felt hungry? Just a couple of hours after eating a good sized meal and wondered how you could possibly be hungry again so soon or maybe you've gone longer than usual without eating and noticed a mysterious absence of hunger. Hunger feels a little bit different to everyone and the same person can experience hunger in lots of different ways at different times. Laurel recently wrote to me about this. She said sometimes my stomach growl but I don't actually feel hungry other times. I'll get that week shaky. Low blood sugar feeling without ever feeling any stomach pangs. And of course there's the classic empty stomach feeling and almost but not quite pain but sometimes I just have an overwhelming desire to eat without any bodily sensations. Is there any research she wants to know? On what these different types of hunger mean you know. Hunger is a very interesting thing. It's equal parts biological instinct and learned response. It can show up as a variety of physical sensations but hunger also has psychological and even emotional dimensions and these are particularly susceptible to manipulation and cultural influence for example. Not that long ago most people used to regularly go four or five or even six hours between meals without thinking twice about it. It's not that they never felt any sensation of hunger during those hours. It's just that those sensations weren't perceived as an emergency but then this popular myth arose that if you went more than two hours without eating. Your metabolism would start to slow down now. There was absolutely no truth to this. A lot of people bought into it and as a result a random twinge suddenly took on new. Meaning stop everything. My metabolism is shutting down. You know after a while it can be harder and harder to distinguish actual physical hunger from anxiety or habit or maybe even just plain suggest ability. You know I wrote in a recent newsletter. A central tenet of the intuitive eating movement is to listen to our bodies. The idea is to eat. We're actually hungry as opposed to eating simply because it's a certain time of day or because there happens to be food in front of us or maybe because we're feeling bored or blue. It's good advice except that our subjective experience of hunger isn't always very reliable guide as to whether our bodies actually need food or not and we all know what happens when we take in more food than our bodies need one. Sign that your body needs. Food is low blood sugar and sure enough when your blood glucose is low. This triggers hormonal signals. That increase your appetite and your desire for food. So you'd expect that the degree of hunger a person feels would be closely linked to their blood sugar levels lower their blood sugar the hungrier. They'd feel and yet. This is not always the case. Experiments have shown that we can take people who aren't hungry and make them hungry simply by showing them a movie about food and don't think the advertisers aren't all over that similarly we make people who are hungry because they haven't eaten in a while feel less hungry by showing them a really engrossing film. That's not about food. People's reported level of hunger also changes depending on what they're being offered to eat. If it's really yummy they feel hungrier. And if it's that appealing they're actually not that hungry. Clearly simply listening to our bodies might not be a foolproof method of knowing whether or not we really need to eat

Providing Cost-Effective Quality Consumer-Driven Healthcare with Henry Legere, CEO, Founder at Reliant Immune Diagnostics

"What inspires your work in in healthcare. Henry I mean so there's not just one thing but one thing that I can say Is definitely a seminal moment was when I was in the fourth grade? My Dad had a stroke right in front of me out at a restaurant and so over the course of from being in the fourth grade through going to college. My Dad was in the military at the time so he was considered a hundred percent permanently disabled after that and Had been veterans benefits that when The Radio Administration froze veterans benefits in the eighties. They hit our family. Pretty hard and so Trying to find access to healthcare when the veteran's hospitals and clinics were closed and then actually be able to afford healthcare. You know just being a child and watching your your parents struggle like that was very impactful so when I went to college. It was halfway with a sense of purpose to you know one day. Try to practice healthcare and be compassionate and and just be mindful of the challenges that families with healthcare burdens experience. Wow that's a story man. I I didn't even know that. So at one point during the Reagan administration the VA closed. Yeah so it was. It was one of those things where it was one of those things where the government didn't have a budget and they were playing hard ball and so I think that the Reagan administration and I'm not playing politics. I you know. I think that I think the Reagan administration so there were a lot of entitlements that they needed to be cut when you're trimming the the belt and try to figure out how to balance the budget and get people to come to the table and it was a bargaining tactic and it just went on and on and on so they ended up being about. I don't remember if it was six or nine months. But you know when you're looking for a doctor you're trying to pay those medical bills. It was a long time to end. It wasn't just the you know the medical benefits it was also the factual salary my dad guy as a disabled veteran so it was even just the stipend that we lived on and then suddenly we were. We went from very little money almost no money. Oh yeah that. I'm sure that was hard. I'm sure that was hard. And you know it's Really really thank you for sharing ad. pizza history that you know. I feel like maybe some of us didn't know like me or some forgot and it's worth remembering but more than anything Henry. It's it's the impact that it had on you. And how what you're doing today to improve access and make things easy for people it's really inspiring so this is a great opportunity for us to zoom into your company and help listeners. Understand what exactly it is that that you guys are doing. And how is it that it's helping the healthcare ecosystem? Yeah great so telemedicine in general has so much potential and it had this potential since it was conceived of more than fifteen years ago and the biggest challenges earlier in Telemedicine telehealth technology regulatory so early on even if you could get patient to connect on their phone to perform some sort of medical consultation in many states. It wasn't legal. You had to have prior physician patient face to face relationship and so there were. There were legal regulatory barriers in place. And then how you actually conducted the visit. Whether it was over a land line or computer was was different in different states could actually conduct the visit whether had to be board certified physician or if it could be one of the mid levels like a nurse practitioner or a PA working under the direction of the position that also different statements state and so with those hurdles in place and made it very challenging to utilize. What has the potential to be something very much more affordable and also something they can almost immediately increase access and so One of the positive developments over the past couple of years technology has caught up so with Bluetooth connected triage devices so everything from blood pressure. Cuffs to blood glucose monitors to pulse ox senators to devices that can allow you to image eardrum. The back of the Throat Medical Stethoscopes. That are Bluetooth connected. All of those can be integrated onto a software platform that can then give live accurate information to providers that could be sitting remotely and state by. State. Those laws have caught up so that now you can actually establish a patient provider relationship through telemedicine visit so the promise of telemedicine. It's just on the verge of being realised even Federal Government in. Hhs has relaxed regulations on conducting. Telehealth is it's because they realized that our current health care models not sustainable men in order to really be able to cut costs. You have to take advantage of these cost-saving technologies without compromising the quality of care and so at the end of the day everything still has to come back to the quality of the care that's been delivered but for simple visits things like cold and Flu. Differentiation strep throats ear infections initiating birth control science pressure pain rationality pink. They're just so many types of visits that you can tackle using the tools that you already have in front of you and so we tried to do is go even a step further and create an entire network nationwide of physical locations where we will. We can do what we call hats. Telemedicine visits so instead of just being a simple visit. That's limited to the information that you can convey you know with a phone call or with a video call. We WanNa make sure that we have all the tools on site so that we don't compromise any aspect of the patient visit so that we can actually get really high quality lung sounds capture. A HEART RHYTHM performing K. Jeez on sites get pictures in the mirror drum. And so we've set up these pods that we call Are Empty box pro version and really what they are just enhanced telemedicine visit and it works through a partnership with either a doctor's office that don't have access to specialists or with other non traditional locations like a pharmacy where a pharmacist or or member of this team can be trained by our practice. The telemedicine extender and so they go through a credentialing process and training process and we basically show them how to be a medical assistant in our medical practice and then we maintain their certification on our administrative platform and then it becomes shoe partnership so when people are on site in any of these pharmacies they can initiate a doctor's visit or visit with one of our other practitioners like nurse practitioner or a physician assistant so Exciting Times it really is and you know as you think about that moment when your dad didn't have access to care what you're doing today is just like incredible and it kind of reminds me of Howard Schultz his experience with his dad. Not sure if you know that experience historic now yes so Howard Schultz the CEO of starbucks his. His Dad got hurt at work and it was a real is really bad. And they let him go and they didn't cover any of his bills and it was really bad and it really affected the family in a in a severe way that because of that he made a decision that every employees even part time at starbucks would have

What is Hydrotherapy and How Does It Work?

"What is hydrotherapy. So by definition in hydrotherapy is really the use of water to relieve discomfort and promote physical wellbeing. It's a therapeutic whole body treatment that involves moving being an exercising and water and doing physiotherapy basically in a pool and hydrotherapy techniques particularly the alternating of immersing yourself in hot and in Copenhagen are becoming increasingly popular as an aide to recovery so we discussed before needs episodes cryotherapy. So I don't want to look too much into that or into the process of alternates between hot and cold. Water already. Zone is semi therapy so using heated pools physiotherapy. hydrotherapy can help us cut from injury not performing simply size in waters. And that's the key focus of this episode so hydrotherapy. Pools quite often heated to accountable temperature of around eighty five to ninety Fahrenheit. Then also he takes over the artist. poolside of therapy Kinda just being a normal pool of also body of water doing simple exercises to aid recovery bots quite of a heated and the pools can also induce gentle control. Move into the water. which gives you the opportunity to steadily progress in one treatment regime Asia and the principle behind why sometimes heated is the one for the wars can relax muscle spasms which are commonly found in close proximity to the area of pain away? You've had your injury so the reasonably Kurds. Because these contribute towards providing an unstable environment for the body and this helps strengthen our stabiliser muscles which we don't often train in the gym Yelstin instead of doing fixed machine weights this is why we often do free weights because it activates these stabiliser muscles better as well. And there's turbulence can provide a resistance resistance movement which helps and strengthening weak musculature and help him promote balance and coordination which may be in pad. After all injuries so hydrotherapy can be very effective. Windy and helping to rehabilitate injuries. Such as damaged ligaments strengthening muscle after surgery for example because he can support or aching muscles and hell es he's all movements as opposed to a mere on land. The water offers support for damage joints and ligaments on its enables mobility. That might be too painful for us to do when we're not it's in a pool. It's a low impact workout that yields high impact results with less join strache muscle fatigue and Leon further injury. It also can help eliminate anxiety exciting fear of sexually falling over because I know to mental battling for an injury as well quite often your brain will say I can't do this or or prevent you from doing anything in in case you make your injury worse but water can sort of ease since. It by providing support and this often enables improved relaxation on flexibility of the limbs because getting that full range of motion and mobility back enjoy. Your body is very important to let the tissue heal properly but if I'm a mental state is stopping appears doing this. Then we're limiting recovery and win amazing. How quickly we can get back to full health vol of our body? The twice affective lies really in three principles holds water with these being piracy pressure buoyancy and viscosity to the buoyancy. Water provides means for less wait. We have to back so stretching out tight muscles becomes Z. Z.. At because the buoyancy helps us improve range of motion and up the pressure. We exert on knots. Landing in allows us to talk moving back into the joint without that added stress said buoyancy helps higher static pressure is the weight of water against US said when someone gets in water creates a uniform support system for all the immersed forty pause on this support around forty from all different sides and the deep you go the greater the support and it can help. Reduce swelling can improve your circulation which we know was he that brings more oxygenated blood glucose to the muscles to aid recovery on it can diminish soreness due to lactic acid reduction and again it's providing less joint stress and the scarcity of water is the resistance against the person on this resistance can be up to fifteen times higher than would be on land again with vouchers as much impact on the ligament or joint muscle so this allows you to strengthen muscles that might have been weakened with Again putting too much force onto it is worth mentioning as well therapy. which is a mess yourselves in heated pools raise the body temperature increasing blood flow around the circulatory system and said alleviating pain the Experienced Master dilation. So blood vessels start to widen on this. One term will help hill injured tissues and rehabilitates muscles as I said from the more oxygenated blood glucose going to the muscles Hydra therapies also have been shown to help reduce stress by helping to reduce blood pressure caused by of course oh release and you'll know from previous episode about Cortisol Dot. It's often called stress hormone. So as you can see from this discussion hydrotherapy again. It's very surface level fitting timeframes. blots water-based vizier become provided provided very safe environment for those trying to progress through the different phases of rehabilitation and can help us increase our range of motion with less stress in a low impact environment. So I strongly strongly suggest speaking to your doctor and see hydrotherapy could benefit you

'Smart' insulin could prevent hypoglycemia during diabetes treatment

'Smart' insulin could prevent hypoglycemia during diabetes treatment

"Scientists in the U._S.. Have developed a sugar sensitive molecule that works like insulin sponge dispensing civilian automatically into the bloodstream whenever blood sugar levels climb Mark Evans whose a diabetes Specialist Adam Brooks Hospital in Cambridge but wasn't himself involved in the research to look at the study for us so this is one of a group of approaches which people refer to a smart insulin's. They've we've taken standard instant that we already use to treat diabetes and they've combined it with a polymer so a large molecule a bit like a bowl of Woolwich soak sympathy insulin and and then can release it the particular polymer they've chosen his moronic acid which binds and responds to changes in glucose and sugar levels so by tinkering about with this they've rather other neatly been able to come up with a formulation which means that the polymer is glucose responsive so in other words. This ball of wool is able to react to sugar change its charge release more insulin when eighty exactly the time. It's needed in other words when the local glucose levels are higher an equally importantly. It's able to release less insulin them when glucose levels lower at the moment a person who is diabetic would need to tailor how much insulin they have in their body that they inject in order to match what they anticipate say their meal is going to deliver whether activity so this would would release them from some of that wouldn't it would mean that that the the molecules doing the work of calculating how much interested into release rather than them absolutely. It'll certainly help the life of somebody with diabetes particularly. Let's say with type. One diabetes is challenging and they spend their whole time chasing tail in lots of blood glucose testing and and trying to catch up with ups and downs and the hope is that something like this will at least help to let's say shave off some of the OPS and fill in some of the valleys in in Daily Blood Glucose levels. What's the evidence? This technique actually works so they've tested their system in my Sunday in pigs with type one diabetes under conditions of artificial official glucose load essentially giving a slug of Glucose and delivering either this insulin or regular insulin. They've also in mice stunner slightly longer term study over a couple of weeks or so of twice daily injections and does seem came to work at least better than the control insulin that they gave under the particular experimental conditions. They tested this under. How is this new smart insulin? Actually administered visit injected in the same way that traditional insulin the diabetic Isaac is familiar with is given yes so they delivered this by injection in these studies the moments incident has to be delivered across the skin of the body in some way shape or form whether that's by injection Asian or increasingly we've got people treated with insulin pumps which devices which pump incident continuously under the skin so this new approach would probably substitute in for the existing instance but it will be delivered in the same way to a by injection or infusion under the skin you mentioned that it's the glucose going into this polymer which then causes it to release. I saw all squirt out the incident so you match how much insulin you produce to how much glucose is there but could any other molecules accidentally do that so you could unfortunately trigger a big surge of insulin when you don't need it because something trip the molecule into releasing it inappropriately. Absolutely that's a great question. That's one of the one of the questions that arises out of this is how specific is that Polymer for Glucose as opposed to other non glucose sugars. There's things like fructose and things which occur naturally for example in in fruit say this is all part of the work that they're going to have to do to really it's to nail this before they're able to move into human human studies and so they can pull it off. What are the implications for person with diabetes because we can? We can manage diabetes pretty well. In this day and age caught me you you can use pumps.

Plant-Based Diets Best for Kidney Disease Patients

"It's not just financial benefits joining us via our newsmaker line. Dr Deborah clay, joining us today with vital information on the potential health benefits, and maybe even risks but not too many. I would imagine of a plant based diet for patients with chronic kidney disease, including and I'm going to pronounce this correctly, hyper Columbia, I believe which refers to having abnormally high blood potassium levels and how a plant based diet can benefit them. And so many others, welcome Dr Clegg. How're you doing today? I'm doing great. Thank you so much. Glad to hear. I'm ready for spring. Where are you? Now. I'm in Philadelphia. Are you ready for spring to? Oh my God. It is really really cold. Lord have mercy on Winston out. It's not pretty it's not pretty at all. I gotta get some springtime or someone's gonna get hurt here. But I digress. A we're talking today now on the earlier segma-. On this show. We were talking about the many financial benefits of maybe switching up the household menu. A bit to get a few more plant based meals, and they're the money savings are just concrete and stone proven time and time again, you're here to tell us about how a plant based diet can really help people across the board with their health for the most part, but especially those patients with chronic kidney disease for our listeners out there who may not be familiar with that phrase or that or or that kind of an illness. What is in layman's terms, chronic kidney disease? Chronic kidney disease has to do with your kidneys are two organs within our body that are absolutely critical for maintaining normal balance within our body. And so the kidneys are responsible for making sure we excrete different types of waste products. And when you start to fail all of a sudden that you do. Ability to begin to accumulate products within that are not necessarily want full. And so in case specifically with chronic kidney disease as the kidneys begin to fail. We all have an allegation and blood potassium, which you accurately determined hyper kaylene. And so this isn't a condition when we have to high blood potassium levels and this occurs kitties begin to fail that is. And I'm taking notes as we're talking here. So we talked a bit potassium levels that kind of thing potassium. I think bananas which we do a few not too many. That's clearly not the type of potassium. You wanna cut down on your diet? I mean, obviously bananas are pretty darn good. But tell us about just the basic sweatshops we could be doing in our diet to lean more towards a diet, that's safer and healthier and kind of fine. Tune it especially for those living with the CKD exactly what we like to do with you start to begin to encourage individuals, even with failing kidneys talk with their doctor about maybe now is the time for them to be able. To eat more these plant based diet. So as I indicated as the kidneys began to fail. There's a concern that you can actually have to high or too low blood potassium levels and both those are actually lethal. So what we wanna do is we want to make people aware of as they need to talk with your doctor and see whether they might be eligible now for eating diets that are plant base that have many more fresh, fruits and vegetables. There are two new treatment options are new therapies available for people with failing kidneys that actually can help them keep Romo potassium levels within their body. And this may enable them to eat the benefits of the fresh fruits and vegetable diet, that's really interesting now. Now, you're production team who have connected with on many occasions are fantastic. They're they're already well aware that I'm a flaming hypochondriac. I'd say it's not pretty it's not I don't I know I'm not proud of it. But when I hear about symptoms like this that we're talking about talk me down out of my tree a bit in tellers a bit about the just the symptoms of. This or how often this kind of thing occurs in the regular in a in the population say the American population, what are the precursors to this much? We'd be looking out for exactly so chronic kidney disease affects about thirty million people a year, okay? And some of the causes of chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure or hypertension. Okay. I'm abnormal blood glucose levels or call you vascular disease. But you happen to be an individual who has either high blood pressure, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease, you really need to be very kind and take a lot of good care for your kidneys. And so some of the clients the symptoms when your kidneys might not be functioning correctly include nausea, or vomiting changes in your appetite, even changes how much you actually urinate how many times here coins in the bathroom. So again, three means causes hurt for chronic kidney disease. That's high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiovascular disease as well. As some of the from the changes that are signed for their associated with chronic kidney disease. Includes the nausea vomiting or changes in appetite good to know now that you talked me down out of my tree. I appreciate that. I've got none of the above. So I think we're in good shape here, but in all seriousness, you are doing tremendous benefit and tremendous good for those out there. And the numbers are really sagging. How many people are facing this? We're very blessed that we live in a time where there are so many breakthroughs going on. And that's what you're sharing with us today. But from just a preventative standpoint say people have this kind of thing. Running in their family, what kind of plant based specific moves. Can they be making say is it something where they should do it seven days a week? Should they stick to just a couple of meals a day are there certain plant based foods that are better than others? What should we all be leaning to not only to keep C K D from erupting in our family tree? But also maybe just for better health overall, accuracy. Okay. Thank you so much for their many different benefits associated with eating diets that are high in fruits and vegetables. And specifically potassium is an interesting one, which I'm the American dietetic association, and others have indicated that potassium is actually as a nutrient of public concern in that most people are not consuming enough potassium within their diet, some of the benefits of eating fresh, fruits and vegetables and getting the potassium is potassium actually lowers blood pressure. It decreases stroke risk it actually increases nerve function. And believe it or not potassium actually stairs the kidney kidney begins to fail. All of a sudden kidney has no longer to maintain the normal potassium balance within the diet. And so there that's one individuals who have these failing to have to be very very careful of the types of fresh fruits and vegetables that they consume. Yeah. It's true. I mean, everything's a balance, isn't it? Now when we're talking about a diet as well. Those are excellent plants anybody can implement those small changes in there. There are also some newer treatment options that can help balance kind of thing as well educate officers on that if you would write this is an absolutely exciting time for people with failing kidneys. And that is that there are some newer treatment options that are available that actually sort of take the place of the kitty and helped me pain normal potassium balance within the body. And so these new treatment options there, really exciting and people are encouraged to talk with their physician to see whether they would be candidates for trying retreatment options. Again, the idea is that what these newer treatment options, we might be able to provide people with failing kidneys eating the plant based diet. So they can get all the fresh fruits and vegetables that they need and also the fresh vitamins and minerals. From those foods and still maintain potassium homies cases

"Now, we don't want just any question. Do we Lance? No, we don't wanna put boring questions. Like what's the best way to get one hundred percent? Cosa acceptance because we all know the best way to get one hundred percent case acceptance is to never recommend any treatment questions at Gordon. Christianson Kane answer shouts to Russell Schaefer. Our in house. The greatest thing ever writer for that one and happy birthday to to Russell you. Muscular magnificent bastard you. Question. One is a new one for me. Okay. Somebody tried to to. I'm going to try to untangle. This is best as possible. So bear with me. All right listener Gina asks, not sure really what your relationship with dental town is like, but I think this question deserves some attention and following that is a link to a dental town threat. So let's just read the dental town original posts that we can go from there. So this is from Gina, but she's not the one that asked this. She just found this on dental town. Okay. J K seven dental towns says my hygiene commented to a patient that she's diabetic and they were chatting patient proceeded to take out his blood glucose tester and poked, my assistant drew blood without her permission. He did it so quickly and abruptly that she had no time to say. No or yes. Or whatever she was in shock. He said her blood sugar was normal then he perceived it to poke himself with the same needle and said he was fine to do. So what the fuck I'm guessing I will have to sit down and chat with the hygienist to get a blood test. If she wants it or not. But what what the hell do I do with the patient? This is almost borderline assault annoy. That's the definition of salt. Oh my God. Okay. So there's just so much unpack you this is this so much happening. So not good. Okay. So when I when I see question like this receive a scenario pry up, the first thing, I have to ask is this is this made up or did this really happen? Actually think this is so crazy. I don't think anybody could ever make this up. Yeah. That's the thing that the really weird ones are so likely to be true. So yes, like, this just seems like something I'm not sure who on earth would ever think of this as like a made up. I've never seen a movie I've never seen this, you know, anywhere. Like that this this has to be true. Yeah. He does say or she it doesn't I pronoun. My hygienist commented to a pigeon. She's diabetic. And they were chatting pitch to take out his blood glucose tester and poked, my assistant. I think he meant hygienist. I think he poked because. Because that's also that the name of the threat is patient poked, my hygienist, so I guess he he he he or she moved on that, but show assistance cleaning patients, Steve. They're remarking that they're both diabetic or whatever just draws blood without. Yeah. That's I mean, I've I'm not diabetic. Experience. But isn't it a little bit of the isn't us like a cocked thing you pull back in spring loaded in happens fast. I mean, you're not just seeing some some are like that. Some are like a Lancet thing that you can load do and then others are just just me your hand and stick your finger. Yeah. Especially the older ones. That in and of itself is is really insane. I mean, it's just certify ably insane. Yeah. I can't imagine reaching out. And I'll bet you that. She was just in shock as the person reaches out and starts coming towards her with it. And then she's probably thinking there's no way he's actually going to do what up there heated it. Oh my God. We can't do this method that I'm about to talk about because we're in the mouth, but have you ever had a physician who or a nurse who's giving you like a vaccine booster something like that? And and they sort of are distracting you with conversation whenever and they sort of sneak the injection like before like, you're not even prepared for yours talk with them or whatever and like behind their back or whatever they're just like getting everything ready..

"Predictor than blood cholesterol or blood pressure or lots of things. And it's it's a lot more meaningful than body mass index which can have many pitfalls for those who are taller or shorter or have more muscle mass in typical so. Yeah. Waist to height ratio is a hugely hugely important variable and easy to measure. That's super easy metric remember for. Sure. End. Knowing you knowing the way that you raise I'm guessing that you also looked at the metrics that can improve when you improve your liver, especially like your liver health and belly fat in Oregon fat like you've talked about. So from what you've seen in the clinical side. What are some of the markers that are actually changing or improving in the body as people start to really focus on liver? Awesome question, and a lot of lot of things that relate to blood sugar blood, lipids inflammation. So I talked about how there's this thing called leaky Liber, and what's happening is your liver is like a spare a spirit apartment for holding onto fuel the carbs ads. The key tones, so whenever there's extra. We would hold that in the Lugar. But there's some point where it gets too full. Now, there becomes damaged Liber when there's so much there that Liber can't grow new cells quickly enough, and as a common thing and blood test called ale tea or the Allen immuno transfers, and this is pretty bizarre. Well within the normal range all the liver. Specialists agreed had if you're even on the upper half of normal that there's some kind of problem with your Liber to be precise. The number is eighteen some studies suggest nineteen but for women if you're above nineteen there's something wrong with your liver, and they're certainly can be other explanations. Like undiagnosed Titis or reactions medications, barring any other clear explanation. We think about this. This Libre is being the culprit. So that's one of those will also see a lot of changes in fasting blood glucose, and this is really fascinating people think a lot about the importance of that, which there is a lot that we often think about like how how our diet in terms of carbohydrate intake affects Yukos. But yet fast in glucose fasting blood glucose by definition, that's not after a meal. And so when someone has high glucose in the morning that's not based upon what they ate recently. So what's happening is their liver is leaking out too much glucose throughout the course of the night. And even show now for some pretty fascinating studies. They can differentiate the glucose near blood whether or not your Liber produced it or it came from your meal, even in the daytime even like right after meal, and what we're seeing is that people who are prone towards diabetes that about two thirds of their blood sugar has nothing to do with the meal, they stick it. It's what their bodies making all by themselves. So other things that show up in tests would include triglycerides, cluster, all and in many circumstances. These are also types of you'll they're leaking out of the liver. So yeah, it's awesome to see all those things shift, and they can quite readily. Yeah. That's encouraging for sure. And I'm curious, I guess that someone starts this process and try to improve deliver first of all that's much better metric, I think to focus on than just calories or wait the more tangible more measurable, but is it one of those things that as the body heals itself or as about improves? For time. It gets easier and essense like in other words, the more. We support the liver. Do these cycles actually become more effective because the bodies able to more effectively utilized fuel it's an awesome inside your spot on right there too. So when when the liberals healthy, then you've got that metabolic flexibility, and you'll be able to make use of a broader range of fuel types of broader quantity of them and still maintain good health and function. It's kind of funny we focused we focused for longtime about the importance of the gut and the gut flora, and it's a big deal at super important, but conceptually all that is occurring outside of your body still. So your gut is really a tube that goes from health to bud..

"So we are walking around if I bowl issue with glucose right now and your blood glucose rises from wherever it is right now ninety two two hundred let's give you an enormous bowl of glucose. I double it. So you're up to one hundred eighty milligrams per deciliter this very high screaming high level, which by the way, only amounts to an extra few grams of glucose, but nevertheless, what is the chain of events that leads to insulin being secreted and the muscle. Ultimately disposing of that glucose both actively or passively will there be obviously secretion to insulin. That's relative to your Lucas level. And so that the beta Sal is the sensor right an outcomes insulin. And now what is insulin doing to the muscle and insulin through the insulin? Receptor will. Get translocation of the glut for those of the glucose transporters that are the major glucose transporters muscle. It will go from an intracellular pool into the plasma membrane integrated in starts getting locals like crazy into the and that happens quite passively. Meaning once the glut four transporter is translocated across the cell, membrane glucose can passively rush. Incorrect, it doesn't require ATP to bring it in a great way of any sort. Correct. An infected has its own intrinsic activity. That's not the energy dependent. So he can go faster or slower by by different ways. Now is there another method by which without insulin? We can get glucose into a cell that somehow relies on AMP China's not named Py kind. But there's none insulin. Mediated glucose optic. In other words, there's a way for Lucas to get up without the incident, and we know that from hyperglycemia clamp and from. Other things that when we can move into their or keep insulin level at basil. And still there's a substantial Luca's optic. That's happening. So yeah, we know what's the mechanism of I'm I'm not sure I know it also seems to be enhanced by exercise. That's true. That's true. This ninja is the non intimidated glucose update something that is exercise dependent to mellow. That's what now industry your questions. AMP kind is just part of the net. And I I don't know that I only have one patient in my practice who has type one diabetes, but he is such an interesting patient because of his incredibly strict dietary control and his unbelievable appetite for exercise. And he I've never seen a higher level of adiponectin in a human of never seen a higher level of sex hormone, binding globulin in a human way. Which are basically, and we know how much insulin. He has because he injects it, and he injects so little insulin to himself, and yet can to you know, he has a hemoglobin A one see below six using six to eight units of insulin a day. And so what got me. That's what got me very interested in this. Non insulin dependent glucose uptake. Yeah. I'm not doing this research anymore. I used to in front of that I- glucose itself can modulate local China's activity in the lever. There's a lot of things that happening. And of course, there's coordination between the fat, and and the liver, and then I started being interested because we can do things to the hypothalamus and take over these insulin and muscle in fat and liver. We can do it all from the brain. Isn't that amazing? Well, just because I'm so fascinated by this. And I think it will help the listener to understand the complexity of what you just said if I took an animal and put a. Elision into the ventral part of the hypothalamus a normal animal. What could that do what would that change about its metabolism will that would increase basically, food intake and change a lot of the peripheral physiology? But we do basically the opposite. We give insulin to Potala mousse or glucose or or lifting. Okay. And then we see what happens to the brutal birthday, those hormone levels are not increasing adult and not only that the liver is a good target to follow because what you can do with the liver. You can do selective of gotta me and everything that you did through the brain doesn't work anymore because it needs the nerves writes all explained to the listener what that means. So the Vegas nerve connects the body through this para sympathetic system. And of course, if patient has a liver transplant or if you do an operation where you sever the Vegas nerve. You sever that connection between the central nervous system and the periphery correct? And so we can do it's experimentally an end it will help us..

"I'll give you an extreme example. There's a person I know that is constantly sampling, his blood and constantly Sam. Pulling his blood glucose and constantly sampling, the cholesterol levels and making reactions making it very very pretty on that date. There's a confidence interval to some of these data. So if you're constantly sample information, the author you get a file sponsor is pretty high. Then what happens when you get a false positive you react on it. And you go and take a mitigation against it. Or you're going do some radical change against that data. And if there was a false positive, you may actually create a problem that was not the air. Yes. So generally speaking when it comes to understanding, what are the actual levers in our body to be healthy. We know little we know it would comfortable, so we should build products and services amounts of care to achieve that as opposed to speculate on what could happen on the very freedom where we still don't know there should science. We will do products or businesses we should research and second by the name when it comes to different models of care. If you're thinking about connecting data reacting on the data, they need to be very mindful. Out how we use that data.
