And every week i come to you with podcasting pointers and blogging bits. That will help you. Shit your mission and your visages using your voice and here. We are on episode number two thirty four. That's right two hundred thirty four episodes here on anchor f. m. and you know what i'm not gonna stop and today we're going to talk about podcasting through. Hey yeah we're going to piggyback onto last week's show which was self care for podcasters and if you're following me along on my youtube channel. The delaware blogger youtube channel. Then you know that. I've talked about this but we're gonna continue the conversation here on the delaware blogger podcast because this is the season that's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year but for many of us myself included. It's not it's just that plain and simple it's actually the most dread it time of the year. It begins with halloween. That dark and spooky holiday actually sets the tone for thanksgiving christmas hanukkah kwanzaa and then new years. Especially if you are suffering. you know. we're all going through some changes during this pandemic. You know we're isolated and humans are not meant to be isolated. we are communal. We love to be together to laugh to share the hug the kiss to cry but now we're isolated and if you're suffering from anything psychologically emotionally or even mentally. It's going to be exaggerated during this time now before i continue with this podcast episode on pain and suffering. Let me make this disclaimer. I am not nor have. I ever been a member of the medical community. Therefore nothing that i say today on. This podcast is recommended to go against your personal physician's recommendations and or any prescribed medications that you're currently taking and you guys know i'm also a blogger. That's someone that loves to write my blog dow blogger and i wanted to go ahead and subscribe to it so you won't miss any of the post there as well but i'm also someone that loves to talk. So combining talking and writing. This is a great way to navigate through my pain and as a podcast on finding that even better. I've interviewed others on my previous podcasts. And it's given me an opportunity to connect with new people locally as well as across the pond and speaking of across the pond. I'm not going to say that. This is across the pond. But i just wanna shout out my canadian listener. That's right. i have seen a significant increase of listeners from canada. So thank you guys so very much but when you have a guess it gives you an opportunity actually. It gave me an opportunity and a chance to share with others. And whether it's something that i'm going through like my type two diabetes or something that someone else is going through that platform. The platform of podcasting is giving you the ability to share and care and connect with others. Now i'm not saying that you know. Diabetes is all that it's not a death sentence but it has altered my life it can be frustrating to say the least however one of the big concerns especially during this time is grief dealing with the loss of a loved one whether it was this year eleven years ago with the death of my grandmother or even twenty eight years ago when i lost my sister tragically in a car accident. This is definitely the time of year. Then you may begin to think more and more about the missing family members and like i said during cove at nineteen. You don't have the family around the table that you wanted thanksgiving. Maybe the same this year around the tree or the dreidel or the candles or even watching the ball drop so if you to our thinking of a loved one or loved ones and you want to connect with others who may be feeling the same way perhaps starting a podcast on grief and relief might be a great way to grieve an relieve some of those emotions years ago i wrote a blog post entitled the gift of grief and irish share it every year. No matter what. That's why. I want you to head over to dell blogger dot com so you can subscribe and get a chance to read those posts. And it's actually one of the most commented on post in december because people so many people kim relate and it's not just december because i bet if i posted in june october it would probably get the same response so a podcast. I can connect with others. Who may be feeling the same way even through their grief and perhaps you know their relationship was different with their loved ones but being able to connect with others may help during this time so since we can't connect with one another face to face like we did pre cove it. This is a great alternative starting a blog or podcast that gives others platform. You can share that platform with others so that they can help each other or you can help them. It's a gift that's meant to be shared. And i know when you're ready to start that podcast. You're going to send me an email right. You're going to send that email to info at abe lake.

There are now more than 65 million cases of Cove it in at least 120 different countries around the globe. The contagion is killed 1.5 million people. Including 273,000 here in the U. S. A. But an end to the global pandemic could happen within months. At least three covert vaccines, as you know, are currently in production. Each ISMM or than 90% effective, according to researchers. Medicine developed by Fizer was approved by the British government this week. Making the UK the first Western country to give the green light to a cove it vaccine. Authorities in London confirm that the treatment will be available within a week. That nursing home residents and workers in those homes would get the vaccinations first. Here in the USA. The CDC issued new guidelines about who's going to get the shots first up, a NIN dependent panel told the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. That residents and employees of nursing homes in similar facility should be the first people to get the vaccine along with health care workers who are at risk. Because they are treating covert patients. And that needs to be addressed immediately. The medication with NBA administer to frontline workers like Mt. People. And senior citizens and those who are ill with diabetes and obesity, things like that. Health experts say the first doses here in America Could be given a patient's by Christmas with the rest of the population getting the drug in early 2021. Visor and Moderna already in production and believe the companies will deliver nearly 25 million vaccinations by New Year's Day. That is amazing. With, of course, more to come. State and local governments are considering how folks will get the vaccines. The governors are in charge, not the president. Different options may include Stamp on your driver's license attachment to your passport or Ah, card. Two shows you have been vaccinated. That policy will unfold shortly, and we will have it here on the O'Reilly Update. In the meantime, please listen to me. Be very, very cautious in what you do.

And here's why Thea, underlying cause of painful achey joints and muscles is in FLA mation. The key to knock down inflammation before it causes damage is backed by 35 years of research, and that's what Omega X. L does.

"And what they found. Is that women who were even of normal rate if they had central obesity defined by the way circumference criterion their risk of dying. And i pause a little. Because that's a very important. Finding their risk of dying is comparable or was comparable to women who were obese and had central obesity right. How do you explain this. So how do we explain. The what it goes to say is that if let's say you have to individuals at the same body mass index one. That has more central body. Fat is more likely to have all the adverse metabolic consequences of that. I keep talking about high blood pressure diabetes and risk of dying and the way to look at. It is that if somebody's of a normal body weight but they still have central body fat. What that tells you is that most of their weight or a large proportion of the rate is going towards the central body fat the words they probably have low muscle mass. They probably have lower fat in the lower half of the body. Which water boils. I actually protective. Because the i explained to patients people who have high muscle mass is in a sense of powerhouse of the body. It is a lot of calories are born addressed and a lot of calories are obviously bond and you're exercising so if you have lower muscle mass you just born fewer calories period similarly if you have lower fat amount of fat in the lower half of your body. You don't have those protective effects that 'cause i explain it to this way. Lower half of your body is a very efficient fat deepal. It does not release a toxic fatty acids into your bloodstream which the abdominal fat does and that we think is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. One of the things that i read an may have been a quote from you and it was where we carry our fat determines. Our folic. health is kind of what you just explained exactly for men and women for men and women the reason why we make a big deal in postmenopausal women is that you know before menopause for women gains weight. The predisposition is for that factor going to the lower half of the body under the influence of the hormone estrogen after menopause as estrogen levels. Go down. we lose that protective effect and majority of the fat goes to the belly area. So i have been in my office. Who really having to change in read as they've gone through menopause but they see more belly fat and the reason there is there unfortunately losing muscle mass and but gaining fat here so their overall body weight..
Fresh update on "diabetes" discussed on Optimal Health with Dr. Calapai
"Bureaucracy, your feet and it's kind of starting to go up her legs a little bit, okay? Um, idiopathic just means they can't figure out why. You know a lot of new properties, you know, correlates with diabetes, You know, Type one or type two because the sugars damaging will your blood vessels in your nerves? So if they don't see the diabetes there this year. Well, we don't know why. Ah lot of idiopathic. A lot of new property comes from low back problems where you have distant generation pressing on nerve roots. You may not have back pain, but should we have the nerve problem? At the other end of the line. Some people have have you metal explosion. You know in you don't always find that a person has to have diabetes or beyond radiation or chemo or back problem to have nerve degeneration. And that being said, for the patients that have any type of drop earthy We've done a variety of things. Some people respond nicely to doing. Intravenous outflow, podcasting. There's even traditional medical research that talks about how awful pall cast of being a benefit, too. Individuals that have no Rafi. We've done stem cell therapy and the individuals who have no property of you know various types. We may also besides doing intravenous, so it gets to all your organs and where your blood flow takes it. They also inject into the areas whether it's the lower legs or the ankles or the feet. You checked the stem cells where the nerves are damaged so they can go directly to the site, so We've seen some great results with that. She started taking out Look, podcast it and broke out in a rash. Well, who knows what Phil responders acceptance colorings dies could be in a random vitamin, so That's different than something that would be intravenous. But Maybe she should switch to a different type from a different company. We'll get something that doesn't have the acceptance, the binders and the Phyllis in it. Mm. So okay. It's not. I mean, it's not the most common presentation, but we've seen a lot of it. I think I see a lot more. Of what's out there in the world because people have gone to a variety of different Traditional doctors and haven't gotten answers haven't have love testing done, etcetera. So People always compliment me on finding things that other doctors don't find, but it's relatively easy when you're looking form or causes. It's a more thorough blood test or Cardiac testing, where allergy testing or neurological or Mariah supposed to rely on an X ray so My idea is that we always need more information. I wish you were closer to us where you go in the urologist in about a week there any specific questions that she should ask? Ask him about cause why he thinks you have this. Why did this Present. Where does he think it's coming from? Is it coming from low back? Is it coming from? Uh, Something closer to the area. I mean, you have to find closes. Mm hmm. Okay, That's what makes the most sense. Already. Alright. Thank you So much for your call. Phone lines are open. If you'd like to call induce an arrogant down towards the end of the program, But we have time, Tonto. A bunch of you Let's go next to Francis in Belleville. Hi, there. Yes. Hi. I do. Good. Thank you. I think you're just mostly answered the question just previous question because I have never office E in the lower burning of the feet and it's creeping up my legs and in my hand Fingers. So I was wondering if stem cells out therapy is the answer. Or I think it's one of the only things that can help because it's yourselves from your body, doing their only job. By making new cells where the damage is so there are people as you know, and you might already be on medications like Toronto and gather Penton etcetera, you know, to try to change the symptom, but it marches on its marching on because there's a problem there. It's not being changed by just a drug. Just like a diabetic who has high blood sugars. Their insulin productions low there pay increase is tired. When you get him to eat right exercise, cut the carbs, correct vitamins, minerals and hormones on one part of the process, and then you stem cells, so they go to the pancreas among other organs, and they may they become brand new pancreas cells that make insulin. That's where you reverse type two diabetes. So it's uh, a nor kissed rations of all the different things that could help that problem and certainly stem cells of the greatest repair mechanism. And in the history of science, so that's why they work so well. Actually, I don't have diabetes. And I am doing HBO. T hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I was certified the hyperbaric. Many years ago, I had a chamber in my East Meadow and my Manhattan office. And we did a lot of hyperbaric a work great for diabetic. Legolas is worked in a relatively well for stroke, but it's a It's a transient effect. So if you're going into the chamber for an hour and you get pressurized to the half to three atmospheres Which a lot of chambers don't too, because they're not sturdy enough. You have to do it. 40 dives, 40 treatments and once the 40 treatments have done if you're getting a proven crate, but it doesn't last. You're not making brand new cells with hyperbaric, so it's a shorter lived benefit. Okay? That's interesting. Yes. So take a look at the videos on the Web site, you'll be amazed what stem cell therapy. You know, can do. Okay. I'll call your office because I did look at the website and did not. She did not. She the videos on the new Europe but I will Give us a call would love to help you out. So in other words, you can see evidence of worse than the Robert the Parkinson's image.

As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory
"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.
What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?
"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better
A Quest to Extend Life through Early Disease Detection
"Joe thanks for joining us here. We're gonna talk about quenching. Its effort to use technology to detect disease at its earliest stages. And it's audacious goal of extending life by ten years within a decade a i. I'd like to start with the u. Quenching grew out of a a lab that iran uc berkeley You have a masters in economics and a master's in psychology. Your career began in the advertising industry. With w p p and omnicompetent. How did you find yourself working with artificial intelligence and next generation sequencing to transform medicine. Well in a way. It's the circus is closing. So when i was born. I was born into a household of scientists and my mom and my dad bio scientists microbiology Next plank bene- germany and my whole life. All the way up to nineteen was busy just biosciences. I heard it every every day. Counted always intriguing. Not intriguing enough to make me study medicine. Which goes of the wanted me to but i found other things also interesting is typically economics in psychology and so for the first nineteen years busy got the not just a crash caused very intensive course off mike about d by chemistry and so i was very familiar with a whole field then decided you know the other things too in the world that i wanted to explore the advertising and marketing angles more random because i was moving on the strategic side of things and from there i found actually even though i loved you know thinking about innovation and growth. Which was my my main objective. At these elijah marketing firms. I felt more drawn to a financial side of things in it's via transition more into kind of strategic planning and finance. These are very large organizations of it by their doing marketing. Also have wbz's in two thousand employees. It's not a small firm and from there you know i did some strategic acquisition things for them and they had gotten in touch with startups a lot and i decided i wanted to actually switch sides and doing do something much more. Entrepreneurial did this worldwide in the us young then the entertainment circuit beck abbas busy looking at different industries from more from an investment perspective and you know biotechnology became more and more important Starting two thousand fourteen fifteen because some sequencing confidence of sequencing innovation and a and cloud systems reach a critical mass that enabled you know something. That's amazing new age of precision medicine. And you know. I was looking had multiple industries but that really caught my eye and brought back these memories from my first nineteen years and i felt very comfortable jumping a little deeper in looking at different technologies and then by a series of coincidences led to the point where i realize now we are truly at this complete in point in medicine and biotech and then all these things came together right my my bio bake around my financial background in my date of bakery digital bitten finance and Ended was as perfect confluence of really liking biology and details of sequencing on the chemistry left side But also the combination with complex cloud systems artificial intelligence and of course business model innovation. Which was a part of my career. These ten years of graduating college Yeah there's all comes together in this would be the future of medicine. He was gone gene. And our ambitions goto extent you the human life span by ten years within the next ten years and dad's executive technology stack. You need to do that. You need biochemistry. Sequencing cloud systems ai in a deep understanding of business model innovation. The company as i mentioned has rather ambitious goals for transforming medicine. What's wrong with the practice of medicine today. It must be ironic. Miss you asking there. But i can. I can outline that. The biggest there are two things that are really wrong about what's happening today. And these two things resulted in you know. Hundreds of thousands of american lives being lost every year. Like talking about covid. This is a much much. Bigger problem in kuwait. Just has guesses so two things wrong. Unim- on the medically process sites that the feet of medicine still fundamentally follows. The idea that medicine is about treating disease treating symptomatic disease and when you get how people die today. What are the biggest causes of death. It's cancer it's cardiovascular it's diabetes and metabolic diseases in its new problems. All of these are chronic diseases. And all of these diseases cannot be dealt with on a symptomatic basis. You cannot wait until you have alzheimer's and then try to do something about it. You cannot wait until you have late. Stage metastatic cancer. It's just too late so the first problem is ed. Medicine is reactive and symptoms driven when it needs to be proactive and prevention driven and ought to get their many things. Have to fundamentally change Need to be data driven the level of precision foreside statistical understanding to be a higher by by many many many magnitudes. That's problem number one. And the problem too is the business model of health care And i'm in the middle of this right now because we also started doing cooler testing and god reimbursement and things like that.

Program dot com ad also featured on the diet. Dr dot com. And so dr jason. Thanks so much for being on the vast transformation summit with us. Thanks for having me great to be here absolutely and sought curious in how nephrologist how you really got involved with. Sassine will begin west. Well the the most common reason for kidney failure is type two diabetes and the thing about type two diabetes. It's really a reversible disease but it's not taking drugs that really reverses the disease if you take drugs if you take insulin really. You're not gonna get a lot better. In fact you just wind up taking them sort of year after year and every year you go to the doctor you get more and more drugs however Everybody already knows that if you lose weight that type two diabetes almost always goes away so if you have a friend who loses way you can almost bet your bottom dollar that diabetes will get better or go away so it's not a chronic and progressive disease like we've been told israeli irreversible disease but you've got to focus on what's important which is not giving drugs which is you know using the diet to effect weight loss. That's really where i started. So i became very interested in the question of weight loss and look at it from sort of physiologic standpoint. Because the thing about it is that we lost. There's all this Talk like this you know. No shortage of oxen talk about weight loss and how to lose weight. Big business weight watchers and jenny craig. And all that sorta stuff and they're all focused. I think on some things sort of not completely relevant. Which is the the calories there. They all talk about calories calories calories but when you look at it from physiologic stent white The body doesn't count calories it has no calorie receptors. Doesn't know how many calories you're eating so it's like if you're taking all this care to count the number of calories in your body doesn't really care about it at all then. Why do you think you're going to make a difference. You want the body to do something and you think restricting the number of calories does it with the body has no idea what you're talking about like you're talking to different languages so it doesn't it doesn't work and that's where i really got interested in the Sort of notion and it's really about hormones because the body responds to hormones are whole body works on hormones that is You know if you're hot then you sweat if you're cold than you. You know shiver and so on but all affected by hormones and our responses in this case in most cases of weight. It's insulin and one of the ways to really reduce the fun is to use something. Like fasting in intermittent
Study Shows Low-Income Los Angeles Neighborhoods Are Most At Risk Of COVID-19
"U C L A researchers urging health officials to prioritize more vulnerable neighborhoods when they're ready to distribute a Corona virus vaccine, According to a predictive model developed by U C. L. A researchers. High population areas with low income Residents with pre existing conditions are most vulnerable, specifically neighborhoods. In and around South Los Angeles and the eastern portion of the San Fernando Valley. You fellas, health policy and management professor Vicky Maes says officials should creatively engage at risk communities, for example, a food bank Maybe that's where you also need to have testing but not drive in testing. But instead testing where people can come, you know, walk up to it. Professor Mason. Her colleagues also found more than 70% of Black residents live in neighborhoods with the highest rates of pre existing health conditions like diabetes, obesity and heart disease, as well as poor overall health and food insecurity.
"diabetes" Discussed on Food for Thought
"You're more likely to in your next one as well so again if you're getting if you're planning for pregnancy maybe thinking about things like body weight is important and also obviously your food choices join pregnancy as well Wilson if you've had a large baby previous pregnancies of four and a half kilos than that also puts you at higher risk of station diabetes and the other non-modifiable Ter- if you like is about ethnicity if you're south. Asian or black or african caribbean or from a middle eastern background wilson. That it does put you at high risk of going to get just ational diabetes and stability instantly in terms of long term risks. What about to the to the mom. Did you say after. They've had this today then. Need to be cpa catholic afterwards. Yes say i think. Come in if you think about. What's the risk actually for for the baby and for months afterwards than we do know that the risk of of mom going on to get type two diabetes in the next few years the actual risk is about fifty to sixty percents. So it's actually quite high with that peaking about five years after the baby's born say again this doesn't mean say that they'll definitely go on to get diabetes but it does kinda give a bit of a warning shot if you like to think actually what maybe can i modify into my feet choices in my behaviors that might help to reduce that risk. Which is the things that we've we've spoken about in the actual pregnancy. It's important to say like with. The actual blood glucose levels if things are managed very well and say when ladies diagnosed just diabetes. There will be an under specialist care usually especially she units a hospital and they will help with managing the blood glucose levels and the cornerstone of that management is around diet and exercise and food choices if the diabetes is left untreated in. The blood glucose levels are running high. It can lead to complications. Say the client things that can happen is we can get large baby and particularly around the the the waist and this can lead to higher instance of c sections and induce labor and baby can also actually it's delivered have a low blood glucose level as well. I mean this usually rectified very quickly. But it can be quite distressing for both mother and baby as well and that baby then have a higher risk of type two diabetes in later life. Gosh it's so important. This is why education. I think needs to be because we said at the beginning. It's very confusing them. I you've got the different types of diabetes. You've got the individual differences but you also have the long-term term and implications to consider and we've got a question. Chris if you don't mind it's very hard podcast to to offer any kind of advice. Obviously ethically but we do have some questions from listeners. I'm hoping you could shed light on. And the first is from jamila she said i have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Could that mean. I'm going to be insulin resistant. Yes quite likely so. We do know that. women with p. s. or generally more likely to have insulin resistance and often it is treated with a tablet which is called met four men. So this is a common tablet is actually station diabetes in type two diabetes as well and it can help to reduce the level of insulin resistance. Say yes with kind of having that conversation with your healthcare team yet because scholley everybody has a complete unique case on this. Because votes people have police grant syndrome. It could be extremely healthy And eating a very good diet but again. 'cause it doesn't necessarily mean that going to definitely be insulin resistant. Does it know exactly know so like you say it's going to be individual Unless this tests that can be done to look at that. We didn't mention one of the tests. That's used in in diabetes which is called hba one. C tests say that basically measures. The amount of blood glucose levels over about three month periods. That's a way of kind of looking at insulin. Resistance as well as looking at whether someone might have diabetes as well but yeah many people with with polycystic ovarian enjoyment won't have insulin resistance as well and say it will link also with things like body weights if you've got pcs new. You've got a high body weight and again you more likely to have insulin. Resistance young and then that needs to be nice to christine's question and she's mentioned dumps weight. She's mentioned cholesterol levels. She said why are healthy cholesterol levels. Should i be worried. I won't mind getting to high. Yes so with cholestrol. We tend to look at things. The h- hdl stroke and the ldl cholesterol so is high density leiper eighteen and then as elbow which is laid dense delight propriety in and then this is all kind of back together as your total cholesterol level. So if you've got diabetes what we're looking ideally for his total cholesterol level below four but then we also generally break that down. Look at these. Hdl's which are more the positive the beneficial fats and cholesterol levels. And then the ldl which are the more harmful ones say generally wonder hdl cholesterol above one and ldl cholesterol. To be below what it gets below to check my facts on that because it's very very no. That's really really important to note that. I think a lot of people i. I've had instances in our clinic. Chris people come in and they've done one of these gym tests that says they've got high cholesterol. But then you actually look at the breakdown. And it's not actually worrying when you look at the ratio of hdl ldl and so. I think it's important. People know account for that. And then we've got the last question. And ben has said as a pre diabetic should be avoiding cops which we've kind of discussed earlier and an add on to that and does it make me more susceptible to cave it. Say the. I mean in terms of avoiding calls i would say no Just because that's basically what we talked about before you're going to be carrying out a whole feet group and if you wanna if you out clubs completely you need to replace they with something else and generally that's gonna be very.

Chelsea. We do a lot to ensure that the care that people with diabetes is at the best possible and so I just mentioned three quick things. The first We published a standards of care every year. That really is the definitive guidelines on the care for people with diabetes, and we're just about to release the new version for this coming year. The second thing is, we have a number of innovative educational programs. So that providers can stay up to date on the latest findings and treatment, And then the third big thing is we have the largest diabetes meaning in the world. It's been virtual now, of course, because of Kobe, and that really focuses on cutting edge research and brings scientists from around the world together to think about. How we can do better and ultimately find a cure. That's great, and I like I said those read the research that we're able to offer for the medical professionals is so vital and I guess just around it out. You know what would you say is, you know our biggest role the association and really just educating and activating the patient population to be proactive. What? We really want to be sure that people don't just live with diabetes, but that they could thrive on to thrive. They need to be empowered and they need the information.

The New Science of Why We Get Cancer with Dr. Jason Fung
"Dr fong welcome to the broken brain. Podcast thanks for having me here. I'm really excited. Many of our listeners. Know that my my family like a lot of families out there has been touched by cancer. Mom few years ago about ten years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer had aunts that have been also diagnosed with breast cancer and my grandfather passed away of cancer bone cancer. That was there so. I think i'm representative of a lot of people who have been through this journey supporting family members and are just curious not only for their own health and their families south but curious about what is this thing and i want to first start off by saying you know your books and the way that you approach writing. I really appreciate because you're taking a premise and idea that people seem to hold a true. And you're bringing new contrarian thinking we used to think of fasting as being this restrictive thing potentially dangerous and you highlighted the research around that field. That helped us understood. That fasting is actually central to healing inside of our body with things like diabetes and other diseases. And you're doing it again with cancer by questioning the basic premise. And i want to pull a quote from your book to start off the conversation. Which is you say and you start off in the book you say the most pressing question cancer. Research is the most lucid question. What is cancer. So can we start off there because it's still a question that we're asking today. Which is what exactly is cancer. Yeah that's sort of the most important thing is understan- disease you really have to understand what it is like a causes et what the disease is lily for the of the common Diseases cancer stands virtually alone because we had no idea what this disease actually so you look at other diseases like cove it or you know infections. We've identified viruses. We've identified bacteria. We've figured out fungi. And so these are external invaders for heart disease and stuff. These are you know. Blockages in our blood vessels which starved the heart. Or the brain of blood to get heart attacks or strokes so we sort of understand what the disease how it develops in that kind of thing But for cancer sort of a very very strange disease. So it's it's unlike any other disease we've ever face is not a faster. Disease like heart disease is not an external invasion like bacteria or viruses You know it's not a you know stones and stuff. There's all these other diseases. But what is this strange disease and it's not that it's one of these sort of rare. It's unfortunately extremely comments. Lifetime risk of cancer is somewhere around one ten. And it's gonna you know affect everybody's life in that if you don't get it you will know people who will get it almost. Everybody does but we don't know what this is. This is the whole sort of discussion in the book is. What is this disease. Because it's a disease where the you have a normal sal which is part of your own body as it's derived from your own body and for some reason this normal cell he breaks off and becomes cancerous to the point where it can kill you and it kills of course many many fullest the second killer of people so our concept of what this disease actually is has been changing so you know it's changed throughout history really even in the last ten years. There's been this massive change in the way that we look at disease in this what. I call the paradigms of cancer that is you know not arguing about. Oh this you know this is how to treat cancer like we've done lots of studies on you know. Use this drug. The of these drugs in combination with surgery. Chemotherapy and radiation. You put him in this sort of you can treat cancer. I'm not disputing any of that. But in the end it doesn't help the answer. The question of what is if you want understand what it is then you have to start a starts from beginning. Go through it on say. What is this disease. That's where we really made a bata progress within the last sort of fifteen twenty years and most people haven't even really appreciate that. And that's what i wanted to bring forward. Is that sort of recent research and bring it to the people so they at least understand what this disease is. That data is affecting so many people
A Call For Equity In Genomics Research
"So before the break we talked about. How do i noticed. A lack of diversity into nomex. He was working with these databases and noticed a lot of minorities communities were left out and as he began to interrogate that he made two key rations. One of the reasons is more around comfort and convenience. It's like if you are Western european ancestry. Doctor it's much easier to for you to recruit white people within your network right and then on the other side of the coin. It's really hard to recruit communities of people who have historically been exploited exploited by the medical and scientific community traumatizing experiences with lasting impacts. Like what happened to the have a super tribe from arizona so back in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine researchers at arizona state university and the havasu by agreed to partner up to determine if there was a genetic reason behind the really high rates of diabetes that have plagued the tribe for decades but when arizona state turned around and question to have a supine nations origin. Story tried to look for genetic associations with schizophrenia. And getting mutations that are associated with interbreeding it naturally pissed off the community. Because that's not the arrangement and the consensus that they built not only to the researchers not get consent to look at those things some of those questions in themselves deeply disrespected the tribes most sacred beliefs so that resulted in the sort of ripple effect or domino effect with many other tribes in the united states of america pudding a moratorium on genetic research which stands to this day. Here's the other thing. It's become more and more clear but a lot of times. These health disparities like diabetes and have a suit by tribe aren't really even because of genetics. They're more about socio. Economic factors like access to healthy food and healthcare a lot of the times when an indigenous populations or brown black and underrepresented populations that people are recruited into studies. It's under the guise of reducing health disparities and sort of pandering towards this narrative that there's an innate nece to why our communities have higher rates of common complex disease right and that's highly problematic and i have sold that grant narrative in so many grants and papers and that's how i've kind of come to this position of questioning it and being skeptical of what the actual benefit

And then my career took me into both sides of the industry and the health insurance industry hostile side and then consulting as well So with my diverse background there and my personal connection with it I continue to strive to to contributes improving yourself to the healthcare system that that's unfortunately a little bit more messed up. And we'd like to net but with all the numbers out there. It's it's easy to see that it needs improvements. And that's what motivates me to continue getting up every day to kalki poker evan That's that's great man. I mean how those two road scott converge to get you in new on the young college field and then you you stayed in and then type one diabetes happens to you and you just like you said this. This is it for a year it contributing in a big way. I appreciate you sharing your story very down and you know what i you know. We don't truly fully understand until you live it and You know having the the steps that that you have to take to manage diabetes. You live it firsthand and inspired you to create diabetics united. So tell us a little bit about diabetics united and what you guys are doing to help the healthcare ecosystem and in particular Think consumers right. Yeah her so. When i first was diagnosed stylish trying to teach myself a green all the information that i could help management as even and what i noticed. Was you know. There's pockets of information throughout the internet to go pretty deep to get what useful and practical you the season diabetics. So you have an enormous amount of information for diabetes one basically so someone that's in the process of developing diabetes or just recently got diagnosed. You're just basically learning alphabet diabetes. That's what's out there But there is no actual central location where it takes it to the next level. More of a practical approach bringing everyone together in the industry so Like a hub. And google is the hub in in essence. There's so many layers to get to where you need to go. It's not filtered out. And it takes a lot of time to get what is pertinent that you're looking for from someone such as myself. A background and diabetes kinda still through a narrow it down to what's practical to diabetics But also the ability to interact with it so diabetes united completely interactive platform on a web based solution. We can say so. Members can get on the website and an add content to sites. It's kind of a fusion of facebook. Amazon and wing thin And we've got some other Services that were hoping to roll out here in august. That'll be practical to this day and age being remotely accessible and coach
Why some say racism should be declared a public health crisis in Washington DC
"Racism could soon get a new designation in the district as a public health crisis when looking at the data compared with whites, black residents who die from diabetes six times higher heart disease. 2.5 times higher. Dr Ed working a member of D. C's Commission on Health Equity, says these findings and others in a June report released by Georgetown University Highlight racial disparities in D. C D. C Council Committee on Health is trying to decide of resolution which would make racism a public health crisis should move forward this resolution. It helps get us there, but he says it will take bold steps, including changing how information is collected and analyzed. The committee plans to take up the resolution again later this month.

Hacking Steam controllers and making fast home directories
"Have you been up to. I have been hacking my steam controller. Last show. I mentioned that i was thinking about different controllers for my intendo switch and the i had great hints that it might be possible to use a steam controller with one. Well i've looked into a bit more and it's not only possible is actually quite easy. Is they just bluetooth to. I think i asked you this at the time. Just a brief device it is. I mean you can use it as bluejays device but it doesn't work with the switch has a tooth control. What does the phone where do to it to make it work so the phone where basically pretends to be another third party usb controller and you probably over the usb cable and it says oh hallo you've usb control so only works as a wired controller eight dollars which is unfortunate however. I do happen to have an extremely long. Usb cable from a previous project so is it's not actually a problem for me but yeah basically. There's a the the micro controller even in the controller. There's a guy who's been playing around with. Dave board with that micro controller and managed to reverse engineer enough of what's needed for a switch controller and enough of how the steam control is original. Firmware works to be able to write new firmware for that chip. And then you actually you you plug it into your computer and hold the right trigger. An appears as a usb device. Firmware dot been cash and then you just black the new file onto their and it works but yet because that dashboard doesn't contain the blue chip he's not been able to get bluetooth working with it. Works perfectly well over usb okay so this is clearly a community effort this is now sanctioned right okay and can you flip flop between foam where editions if that's the right yes So you can back up what you absolutely should backup the original valve firmware from the controller. And then yeah basically. You can write the custom. Firmware on and there's a couple of different versions depending on what you're doing with it and then you can write the backup back to it and there's also instructions for how if you completely break the whole thing how to get the original phone way from valve in and restore it back to a king state is on online. At least it's some diabetes about three or four steps but he's some dd which isn't terribly friendly. So it'd be nice if someone by a little gary to do it for you. Considering the actual processes is quite straightforward interesting i manage to Not completely brick but sort of break one of my steam control as i put the optioning in steam big picture to say. Put the bluetooth firmware on which i did and After doing that it was only possible to use that steam controller when it was plugged in. Oh over cable it wouldn't speak to its dungle bluetooth anymore. It's obviously in a bit of a bad way. If this recovery instruction somewhere maybe. I should give that go. I think you just put it with holding down one of the aba x. Warburtons and the steam controller to reset. I have tried that. I did find his instructions and that did not help. So maybe maybe these like you know. D- recovery commands might be Away to solve force back life. Yeah one thing that i decided. I'd do as a result having got this working as i'm going to buy a secondhand steam controller to have permanently in nintendo switch mode because it turns out that if you're not bothered about you're having a box or the receiver. Which for this purpose. I'm not at all you can actually pick up a secondhand one quite cheaply. Yeah i got one in c x nazi. So i've go four of them now. In fact i will mention next time. Remember to mention what. I've been doing with my steam because it's fun. Also what about. You might seem what you've been up to I have been making an extremely fast home directory. A fast one very very very fast not spinning rust than not spinning rust. Now do i mentioned recently upgraded my computer to a thread repair system. You might have meant. I may have mentioned that. And that means. I've got access to gen full speed. Pci ports and two slots and included with my new motherboard was an adding cod which is a sixteen lane. Pci cod the you comp- full mvm ame drives into and then dedicate full lanes to each of those drives. So i have got full two terabyte gen full nv me drives in this thing and then created a raid zero stripe to create an eight terabyte storage device. Which is now my home directory. I'm what you doing with this incredibly time directory. Well a few things. So i'm not using all of my home directory. Some of got mounted to places where vm's and containers live. because. When i'm composing snaps they usually quite big the the other thing that thread rippers. Really good at as a compression and decompression and snaps a compressed bit having a suitably fast processor and really fast storage means. I can build snaps really fast and also Will discuss a bit later. There are other images that i work on regularly. And in order to which rate on those i need to make multi gigabyte compressed images on the regular and now i've a processor that can do that very well and then very false storage to actually make that compression and decompression step very very quick.
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
Our Favorite Horror Games from Each Generation
"What's up everybody welcome to game spook episode six, hundred I am Demon Hayfield I'm your host always today I'm joined by Tina a real mini or Tina Immediate Ville which has always been my dream. To. Slay, born. Scoop. and Michael Pain. Swain Ooh we're, of course, the CO-OP, Mejia's split-screen coop majors. Of course, we've got a great spooky show for you this week lots of spooky emails from our listeners telling us stories about when when they had the wits scared out of them by video games, you talk about some real news about some. Impressive Games that you can now play on your switch. Thanks to streaming but I. Actually learned a new spell this year conjurer of cheap tricks that I am. I learned to spell. I learned. To. Some. That's the towns you summon a Maga. Breaking. Shed minutes this amid sure. Not going to feed them after midnight and went I know the rules Knows the Maga noises yeah. On the microphone immediately that's great instincts. The first time Damon brought can't go to the office. His mouth is over the Mike immediately and Damon was like ten years ago. You GotTa start somewhere. Oh My friend. Thank you. I'm glad they're still making Bagua costumes for children. They converted all the unsold Iwo costumes seriously mogotsi walk to something I didn't even know probably then back to modify shaven as a baby yoga whatever it was probably that horrible Dhabi from Harry Potter I know that was That was a very cute mogg way. Okay he was. A. He was in he was enslaved. That's what was wrong with diabetes wrong with his left but not hinder the carrot. That's more wizard society. Problem. Dhabi's that he looks like a shaved Mog Y. You kinda does yeah. An old one one that grew really old bath time. Anyway. We begin this week with an email from Ethan He. wrote in to say Hello Goose Camp Counselors how missing breathe doesn't realize they're actually called. I. Hope it's keeping a your campers safe and alive with spooky season in full force. What are your favorite horror games from across the generations? I guess that's another way of saying all time. I looked up I was trying to memorize in a Not, blind panic before this like, yeah. Great generation where they slotted in I didn't know if we had to do start. where. Did you start? Because I did like eighties and nineties but they're all the games are like there's horror games eighties but they're like dumb. Dumb. Started in the full motion video era because games like Phantasmagoria dark seed are the first. Games were explicitly scary I remember playing. I have no mouth and I, scream ply I saw that game for the first time I'd never heard that before but seventh guest was the Dorky game that my friends that had actors. People pay be on camera I should say our walk kind of acting scenes that it's like watching a really bad dinner theater and that was like the horror game and then there's alone in the dark, which is an actual again but I never played that back then. It depends if you differentiate between horror and anxiety 'cause alone in the dark at that anxiety that resident evil. executed. So beautifully where you move slowly and the thing is coming towards you and you don't WanNa die and you feel very like ooh but I do think that's different than the horror of the while the attempted horror of like a seventh guest with they're trying to be spooky. I hated that different generations and generations idea a horror game was that they made you feel helpless and and slow. I don't like that idea. So like the start of resident evil the very first thing. I. Don't like much as remakes or like give me a bunch of bunch of action maybe not enough ammo make actually useful and then scare me I like that feeling because I don't feel helpless in real life I feel that way maybe in a scary dream or something but I really earlier in all power wizard. However. But I I remember the first time. I was really scared by game was just like being afraid of losing my progress unlike like will four from an instant kill from a plug us which is like sucks. Systems. There's very few AMMO supply caches and you just like are trying to get through this really difficult game. So it's actually legit scary when a Scorpion comes out of a neck hole and decapitates instantly because you're like, well, I. also lost forty five minutes of Gameplay. That's scary. We'll see that's why Har- general even just irrespective of gaming is wonderful genre because there's so. Many different kinds of scares. So if you're going the Zayed's track like I I made a list of some notable horror games I've played over the years and like blood borne is the kind of thing that scares me because it's difficult mom and blurred had like a more robust coop capability which was great for me because I got like bring a buddy along helped me through. But then you have things like the survival are element is more about like how are you with your resources which may be my top survival horror game is Alan wake but boy did I get stuck in a couple of places where like you're out of flashlights and you have a bunch of people running after you and you're trying to jump between like generator generator. Energize streetlamp to another streetlamp but there are certain areas where you just like it kind of pushes you into a point where it's really difficult to progress which not necessarily my favorite whereas like dead space is all about like the jump scares and some of the Gore kind of scares too. So there's just tons of areas you can go through when it comes to hard. My earliest experience is house of the destitute and arcade game. From the nineties late nineties and that was just sort of like I. Don't know that it was necessarily scary as probably scary for me at the time because I was younger and was very tense, and obviously you have to put quarter after quarter to actually make it through all levels. But. That's more like I suppose action element kind of. Like zombies are inherently scary sort of game as opposed something like like inside which which we talk about on scoop all the time, which is more of a like cerebral kind of. Psychological, scary
Why is it so Hard to Lose Weight?
"It is hard to believe, but this begins our seventeenth year of broadcasting, dishing up nutrition. For seventeen years every Saturday or most Saturdays I guess I should say. We have shared up to date nutritional information. Designed specifically to make a difference in the lives of our listeners and their health. So, each week our message has been about eating real food like that's the term. Now I think that we can kind of put our stamp on his eating real. So, that our listeners our clients can have more energy. Less, than for inflammation, better health and everything in between. So it isn't a message about the latest fad diet. It's about eating a healing plan of real food. This is just kind of an interesting observation and Clint Brittany. Maybe you've noticed this in clinic here in there but I've noticed with some of my clients at it seems that many people seem to like blame or really attribute many of their health problems to their genetics. Yes. I, agree with that Yup. And they haven't quite made that connection yet that food the food that they're eating is the cause of their health problems. So as Dietitians we work one on one with clients, and so we'll hear things like my father had diabetes. So I know sooner or later I will probably have that to or maybe it's my mom had arthritis so I will have it eventually also. one. They heard I think recently in the last week or two My grandmother had Alzheimer's disease. So I really worry that I also get Alzheimer's disease. And it is important to know our family history. What is in our family history? I mean, we even have this in our health questionnaire, an area where people can kind of talk through or list out what's in their family. But, it's also an important an important concept I think to say, the family history does not have to become our destiny. And we can be like, maybe we have some predispositions in the background or tendencies one way or another, but it does not have to be our destiny. So true and I think that what oftentimes people don't think about is you know maybe your dad had something your mom had something. And now you do what? About your lifestyle? No, you probably have a similar lifestyle. You know a lot of our habits come from childhood, and so I think often times it is more lifestyle and your food choices driving. Those conditions than than genetics yup absolutely I'll say that to my clients do it's like you know we probably especially as younger children ate a lot of the same things growing up as our parents did. So how much of an impact did the foods that we were all eating together then have on the development of some of these conditions it's kind of food for thought. That A lot. and so for you listeners out there maybe you've also said to yourself, you know I must come from a family there must be an obesity gene there because my dad was overweight his mom was overweight all of my brothers and sisters are overweight and now I'm starting to gain weight so it just must be baked into our destiny must be in our jeans. Though the question, we are going to address this morning on the show is, why is it so hard for many people to lose weight they're going to go through a couple of things per pretty much two main points that will address throughout this show. And maybe maybe you is a listener of this is something that you've wondered yourself and maybe you've said yourself, well, why can all my friends lose weight just by drinking less wine or less soda or less XYZ while I can't lose weight and I never even drink wine to begin with it's just not fair. Yeah we hear that time Yup. So. So this is these are the kinds of things we want to explore in today's show, and before we dive deeper into our topic, I want to introduce myself and my co host WHO's here in studio with me. My name is Leah Klein showed I'm registered and licensed Dietitian, and here with me this morning is Brittany Vincent who is also a registered and licensed Dietitian. And today, our goal is to share some new information but also some old information about weight loss and our hope is that you will really think about the information we're going to share with you about weight loss and perhaps then be able to take some that information and start. feeling out in applying in your own life where it makes sense for you and applying this to your own body. As we all know, it's one thing to know the information, which is what our show is about a lot of times you want to give that information out and make it as widespread as possible. But then it is a whole other thing to actually apply it and to do it and. Teaching choices are hard especially like you said of these are things that have come from our childhood. These are habits that have been deeply in green, and oftentimes this is the hardest part for people.
"diabetes" Discussed on Dishing Up Nutrition
"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.
"diabetes" Discussed on Diabetes Health in The News Podcast
"The science has evolved of flooding meditation. Then my treatment has evolved as well. I worked very closely with by healthcare. I'm a huge proponent. That diabetes is a team. Sport breaks a full team to successfully manage diabetes when it comes down to medical professionals for sure by chronology Dr Peters Diabetes Educator Donna. Working with the nutritionist. My exercise physiologist integrated that. But it's also my team at home. It's it's my wife. My parents my sister. My friends that I'm having a hard day on burned out. They're the ones that support me healthy and encourage me Even people the diabetes community are the people that understand what I what I go through every day and sometimes reaching out to ban and just talking through challenges they faced or how things have gone really well for the last couple of weeks Is I think that's an important part of vantage get talked about Managing Diabetes exported working within that team to continue to ask questions about what infringer available. What injection method allergies are out there? how how things worked for me? It find having problems if I have an issue with by JAB activity. Is someone else they that overcome that. I think that that dialogue is really important to keep getting better lie. I think families are really important component. My former husband is a type. One of forty four years and doesn't have any diabetes complications. And we're really good friends and I was meeting recently. Were talking about blood. Sugars new said. Don't you remember you know? We got married in her late twenties. I don't remember every time my blood sugar was high said. Don't worry it's GonNa come down and it really made a difference and I said I really said that he's like yeah and it helped so I really. It's interesting because even for me I you know having these conversations you forget that how important your family is. Because it's easy are they're that first line of support and and sometime. I definitely kill badly. That has to get the deal with my Mood swing by blood. Sugar Swing sometime and the Beeping of my my desk com g six bedside table in the middle of the night those sorts of things. I feel badly that when she's trying to sleep and especially at the moment she's pregnant and where Trying to make sure she gets arrest. And sometimes especially if I'm hovering around and alarm blood sugar and I've a glowing above the flow it It doesn't always wake me up because I I hear it. I understand by punchers. Okay right around that alarm number. I'm fine but it definitely wakes her up. I feel badly about. I think you know as you were saying. Family's really important but also diabetes is a family disease you know. Everyone learned to participate. I know for me when I got involved with my former husband. I was really impressed. The way he manages diabetes. He really was proactive. He wasn't embarrassed about it. And the way he modeled. It was the way I expected everyone to being than later when I start working in the industry I realized that not. Everyone's like that so modeling that in having the support and having your family support you know rather than publicly shaming you for example some people write me and say hey you know i. I dated someone and they tested their blood sugar at the table. Unite isn't that improper knows like I said No. It's not so so I think that's I think to me that's one of the great things about having worked with the race with influence program for the last twelve years is being able to green diabetes into the light a little bit too to kind of remove some of those stigmas that people talk about And I can't remember who it was. It was another notice patient lassiter and he was talking about. How is his grandmother had diabetes and and they didn't talk about it they said. Oh she she's got the sugar just kind of it was. It was just kind of a nord or almost minimized and now the conversation around diabetes has changed part of it is the growth of the the community wants. Take Two's And access all right access and communication. I think social media podcast boggs. Online interaction has really allowed the conversation within the diabetes community to to remove that stick by to to make it more of a interactive dialogue with all of the stakeholders within the the disease state from. You know medication. Companies to healthcare professionals to patients to advocates to passengers. There's there's there's this great continuing to grow as low energy of bow the conversation and and the future And then something that you know being involved with no one can being part grace within flip program. I think my rookie year in Indycar in twenty eleven in fact couple years before that has been a lot of fun to be part of and does the new team that you're racing with is something that they're learning about also taken it upon themselves. They know the difference between type one type two or do you feel a responsibility to them with that. Like oh it's funny. You say a responsibility to educate I think I see it as an opportunity to you educate The new team for me. It's really exciting on a professional level to raise for somebody like Aj four Aj for history with indycar racing thing within the Indianapolis Motor speedway general as a driver. He's one all over the world. Some of US psychotic races out there and touch was the first four time winner of the Indianapolis five hundred. That's pretty rarified. Air and he has his face on the Warner Trophy. Times fighting it out with five hundred in five different decades and you talk about that and how challenging it is to just make indy five hundred not only did he make it in five different decades. But then he went on to win it four times so his history as a driver. Is it Tommy? The whole team and a culture of the team the being able to to learn from him and and work with their team at at in the card every car race. This year is pretty exciting. I think it's it's early days within by awareness and education campaign within the the race team but there are a couple of team members mechanics team managers. But I've worked with at previous rates. So they're pretty aware and they're really excited to to continue to learn and and learn about the race with programming. Will THAT BE TRUMP? Let let me ask you with the decks COM G. Sex.

Because they're not eating and they only take the you know the the fast acting the rapid acting again so people with diabetes and Ramon have a very special challenge for both at risk of having glocer during the evening hours but then having very high sugars after the if dr which is the big meal in the evening so it makes it even more challenging both ways for diabetics most the majority of diabetic who are on oral agents. He just pills. The majority of them can't fast reasonably safely and they don't need to adjust their medication that much especially when they don't have high risk of having of earth are they had high-pricing before now the people who are on. Insulin is a bit of a different challenge. Because insulin like I in in a healthy individual who does not have diabetes when they fast. And that's what the study in England and all that when they fast. They've seen their insulin. Level goes really low almost undetectable levels so prevent them from having hypoglycaemia and they think. That's what may we set the insulin resistant type thing. That can happen in obese and diabetic people who take like the insulin long acting insulin or the fast acting insulin insulin. Staying in their system. They're eating or not and then can lead to be your hypoglycaemia the majority of people who elect to fast While there is still on insulin they most of them they will need to change the timing and the dose of their insulin. So sort of the fast acting insulin. You're not gonNA take any fast acting when you're not eating but even the Basil Insulin. The Long Acting. Insulin probably need to move the timing audit from if you take it in the morning you really want to move it to take it in the where the evening around the evening meal. And most of guidelines recommend to cut back does by ten fifteen to twenty percent to prevent these low sugar during the fasting hours. And what if you're on an insulin pump? Would you do the same thing? So you would adjust your basil bullish recog- a although I was reviewing some guidelines are on the safety of fasting during Ramadan. I'm not a clergy percents. So it's really hard to tell you can't believe take responsibility and saying you can fast and you cannot fast so this is a very hard decision for a personal decision to make once you get there. But in general there are few high risk markers really make people have to stop and think twice before they want to make that decision and proceed with the fast thing. And You you're well-controlled on pomp and you can feel the hypoglycemia. Continuous Glucose Monitor Daring. And he can tell when you're hypoglycemic. Then that's fine but if you don't or you have the hypoglycemia unawareness need you. Can crash down without even having warning symptoms..

And so it's important to just really emphasize lifestyle modification in this population on couldn't agree with you more. All right. Well, thank you for explaining that the next thing. I wanted to go into with you, guys, exactly. The mechanism of insulin resistance type two diabetes. A lot of debate on this end. I would love for you to hit us all hard with the science go into it as you. As scientific as possible that you can go all the way into the biology for our listeners of what causes inflammation instance, type two diabetes. How does saturated fat play a role in this? How how can you eat a high carbohydrate diet and not make diabetes worsen and all that I'm super graduates question because this is this right here. This conversation is the Hawes of ninety percent of all the conflict in the diabetes world. It's the cause of the, you know, there's there's a lot of debates, and there's a lot of sort of misinterpreted science, and in all really boils down to this exact conversation here about what truly causes insulin resistance because like I said earlier prediabetes is the the condition that you develop before you become hype to that. However, insulin resistance is another is another synonym for prediabetes. That's really all. It is. So it you first become insulin resistant that manifests itself as that we refer to as pre-diabetes. Diabetes one in the same. And then when insulin resistance goes from being a small, you know, a condition that is doesn't really disturb your bug the coast too much to a condition that disturbs your bug significantly.

Those are individuals that you've probably can say, you know, there's a strong likelihood you could have prediabetes. And if you think you're going to do something about it could be worth checking, otherwise those people that you would say this is a good time to start leading a better lifestyle. Is there any diet? That's better than any other. So diet is very controversial area depends on who you talk to him. Right. There are some people that advocate, you know, low carb diets key Todic diets, there's a variety of different diets the American diabetes association, which is really sort of the, you know, the professional authority in this area has no specific. Conditions on which diet is better than another. Because the data are controversial anyone that you look at. I think the the bottom line is it's better to go with the diet that you can stick to right because you know, if you don't if you if you basically are being asked to take a, you know, a very high fat or high protein diet, and that's not what you normally eat the chances that you'll adhere to that or much lower. So where's the cutting edge stuff and type two diabetes right now.

So there are, you know, obviously, drug companies that are working on a variety of different than new drugs, and you probably know in the past decade, the number of new drugs for type two diabetes has been coming. Probably every. Couple of years there, obviously new drugs and the goal of many of these drugs is to lower blood sugar without increasing weight. And that's a big goal. The other goal and type two diabetes. Medications is that the FDA requires that many of them be tested longer term to look at risk for cardiovascular disease. Right. So we're not looking to reduce it. We're just looking to make sure these drugs don't increase that risk to have some of the ones in the past increase the rest. Yeah.
