It goes down to ten to twenty grams for individuals that want to lose weight. That seems very hard to do. But it is manageable. Once you set your mind to getting lofts sugar.

Sugar and fruit has fiber seems okay and some nutritional benefits too but you must watch for those hidden sugar calories and fruit smoothies and so called quote unquote healthy foods because these types of drinks and foods will make you gain weight and have you wondering why. Why am i gaining weight. If you need fruit with a sweet taste grab some blackberries and raspberries..

According to two famous. Harvard studies weight gain of as little as eleven pounds from early adulthood through middle age increases risk of major chronic diseases such as diabetes cardiovascular disease and cancer the flip side though is that even modest weight loss can major health benefits. What's the optimal bmi The largest is in the united states and around the world found that having a normal body mass index a bmi from twenty to twenty five associate with the longest lifespan. Put all the best available stays with the longest follow up together and that can be narrowed down even further to a bmi of twenty two twenty two. that'd be about between one hundred and twenty four hundred thirty six pounds for someone who stands five foot six but even with a normal bmi the risk of developing chronic diseases such as type two diabetes heart disease and several types of cancer starts to rise towards the upper end even starting as low as a bmi one a bmi five eighteen point five and twenty four point five or both considered within the normal range but a bmi five maybe shared with twice the heart disease risk compared eighteen point for just as there are gradations risk within a normal bmi range their spectrum with an

How Chromium Helps Blood Sugar Control
"Chromium does and this is something really interesting. It was actually long thought to be toxic but then in nineteen fifty seven discovered to be an essential part of something that is created within our body called glucose tolerance factor more gt f for short and so the the mineral chromium when we get it from our foods inside of our body it incorporates into this compound called glucose tolerance factor and that is a compound this made out of chromium niacin which is vitamin b. three and then three different amino acids and then it creates. This complex called glucose tolerance factor. And that's kind of really the way the chromium works in our body to help us with our blood sugar levels because it would it does. Is it helps the insulin to be more receptive or more received by our cells to allow glucose into the cell to be used to create energy. Sounds like for those that are diabetic. They're lacking bat exactly. Yeah so that's kind of where a lot of the more recent research has gone is. What's the relationship between chromium intake in the diet. And people who have either prediabetes or type two diabetes so and typically what is found that people with any kind of blood sugar imbalances like that diabetes tend to be very low in chromium in their diet. Enough all right so late on me. How do we get it in our diet. Well there's a number of foods that contain chromium and then there's also the supplemental form of chromium taking it as a supplement to make sure you're getting enough. The challenge with getting it in your diet is the foods. It's kind of hard to know. Exactly how much in those foods because depending on where the food is grown and what the chromium content is in the soil. How much chromium. That's really going to have in a serving of that

Officially an epidemic in the late nineties but obesity been for a couple of decades before that was only really in the nineties. It they said okay. This is an epidemic and it's growing it's been growing ever since so why even solve it. Why even look at this issue and say what are the things we can do to fix this problem. Well there's a there's a some big reasons Number one the health risks associated with obesity alone are tremendous it dramatically increases your risk of all cause mortality. So being means that you're much more likely to die of any reason at all but to be more specific. Your risk of type. Two diabetes goes to the roof heart. Disease goes to the roof. Stroke goes through the roof. Gallbladder disease goes through the roof. Osteoarthritis goes up quite a bit cancer. You know some recent studies atribu consi- literally say that you could just by not being obese. You could reduce the risk of like seventy five percent of cancers okay so just being obese increases your risk of cancer sleep apnea is another one. So is it big problems now. A lot of people might say well. That's personal right. If you're obese. Then it's your your own issue. And i i get part of that. But here's the truth. It literally no joke if you look at obesity and you look at all the things that are connected to obesity. It threatens to bankrupt. Modern
Will Collagen Break Your Fast?
"We have a question from daniele in the subject is collagen slash vitamins. She says when breaking a nineteen to twenty hour fast. Can i start with my collagen supplement which is powder and water and gummy vitamins. Please don't judge a grown woman taking gummy vitamins. Laugh emoji no judging so great question. Daniela the very short and simple answers. Yes the longer answer is. It's a good thing to clarify. I think collagen is something people especially people. That are new to fasting. Think that it might be something that they can take while fasting especially because it's often quote prescribed to take the way she's taking it like in water. Collagen is definitely. Something is not fasting friendly. It's a protein amino acid. It's going to definitely definitely break your fast. Yep people like to start at coffee. i don't know why Started that diddy I think way back in the day. 'cause i remember reading him writing about it. He was saying for women in particular.

So it's actually a really wonderful time to take it right when you're breaking your fast. Like danielle is and then same to take the vitamin. I'm not a huge fan of multivitamins. In general i think it's better to target specific nutrients there's so much complexities to vitamins. That it's hard to find a vitamin that you know is actually doing what you wanted to be

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.
How To Work Through Pregnancy And Menopause.
"Hi and welcome to help each other hurt a podcast dedicated to uncovering many of the women's health issues many of us are wondering about but few of us are talking about my mission is to expose the current gaps in knowledge and Care on all things Women's Health. Enjoy. Welcome back to the show. So today's episode is going to be all about pregnancy and how conditions may may have affected your pregnancy can come back to play a role in perimenopause and menopause. So you may think these two are completely unrelated and I am here to let you know. There's actually some really interesting themes that we may be able to gleam from our pregnancy that we can use when we look forward to or as we're entering into perimenopause and menopause. Before we get into that let's hear a word from our sponsor from Pharma. Thank you so much for sponsoring. Today's episode film Pharma is a woman's health care company the focuses on putting women first off then Farm was established to help women who are often forgotten about the pharmaceutical industry their products address vaginal and Volvo dryness itching and pain. We're always told how important it is to moisturize our face, but our intimate areas just as important many women have trouble talking about dryness with their doctors and do not know where to turn them far. My mom is here for you. This company feels women should feel comfortable making intimate skin hydration a part of their daily skincare routine try their products today for relief from vaginal and Volvo, dryness wage and pain check them out at fem pharma.com. That's, you are not going to be disappointed. All right, so here comes a fun job. Moment of Truth one of the reasons I wanted to do this episode today is because I am expecting and I've been hiding this fact for a pretty long time. I am in my third trimester and so far pregnancy has gone just fine. I'm not one of those people who really enjoys being a pregnant. I know many women who do simply not one of them. So I have been trying to hide it and I guess that's my way of not focusing so much on it. Thankfully. I'm lucky to be pretty healthy during this pregnancy. And this will be my third child is a surprise. We don't know yet if it's going to be a boy or a girl so it'd be really fun if you want to stick around and see I'm due in early June and not anything like my last baby. This baby might be a little early. So if there is a little break in podcast episodes, it's probably because I just had a baby now you also log I love working and I love what I do is I'll probably be back pretty quickly. And at this point I've gotten really efficient at getting podcast episode out to you. So I wanted to let you know because I do not feel like I was being honest hiding this any longer and I am really excited but it really led me to think about let's talk about how pregnancy relates to. Pause and menopause now. I just said I'm one of those people who loves being pregnant. That's mostly because I'm uncomfortable a lot. However, I have been really blessed to have healthy pregnancies, but every single pregnancy can be thought of as a stress test. So do you know what a stress test is if you don't we typically think about cardiovascular stress tests where they put the little leads you and you have to walk or run on the treadmill and they're looking at the EKG to see when you're under stress what happens to your body and this is gleaming information about future cardiovascular or current call log. Vascular risks that you may have and pregnancy is a very similar. It's a, you know, forty weeks stress test to see when we put your body under a little bit of stress or conditions that arise that may play a role in your health as we go down the line and we're starting to clean so much more information about what we can take from our state and as pregnant women into our health as we go forward, for example, if you had gestational diabetes or gestational hypertension preeclampsia, a preterm birth postpartum depression off or any of these other complications, and I'm going to talk to you about what all those could mean and we're still Gathering a lot of this data. So more and more is to come now what you've never had a baby or you haven't had a pregnancy in your lifetime. I think this episode will still be really interesting because we're learning so much about maternal health and female birth. Factors that are completely independent or different from the traditional and I'm saying those are question. You can't see me risk factors, which is based on the mail system. So thinking about these is also really interesting as well as if you have a friend or a daughter or a niece who's going to be pregnant. This is such a really interesting information to know about first. I'm going to walk you through some soft findings and soft findings means. This is just what I see clinically and I don't really know how it's going to go on to apply but one of the things that I do see a very common basis is women who have had a postpartum depression seemed to have an increased risk for either pmdd, which is severe PMS or mood symptoms in perimenopause and into
The Functional Medicine Approach To Oral Health with Dr. Todd LePine
"People who go to medical school. We don't really learn much about the mouth gum disease or you can have sores in your mouth and we a few things here and there. But it's just amazing. How much of a vacuum and our education or health is but in the turns out it's been linked to everything from alzheimer's to heart disease to cancer and to autoimmune diseases and on and on and on and the question is you know what is going on with abs the connection between our oral health and overall so take us down that pathway. Then we'll talk about you know. Basically how to address dental health a functional medicine perspective. Yeah so mark Just a just a little bit of background. Probably have mentioned this before. But i come from family of dentists so my grandfather was a dentist. He went to the university of maryland in the late eighteen. Hundreds my father went to university of maryland. Nineteen four days. My brother went to u. penn dental school and then his two sons are dentists and my two sisters are dental hygiene. So this is a topic. That's near and dear to me. And i'm sure the black sheep of the family and we know that in functional medicine the gut is sort of where everything starts and it can either lead you down the path of health or can lead you down the path of disease and the beginning of the gut the mouth so as you mentioned you know in in medical school. We didn't learn anything about them out. That was like for the dentist. We'll just ignore that and the dentist just basically stay them out and they don't really realize that there's a whole body connected mild or some of the dentist don't and this is where i think. A lot of even functional medicine physicians and dentists really miss a connection. So unless you're working with a a holistic Smart dentist or a functional medicine doctor. Who's aware of the connection between on the mouth in the gut ends systemic the yoon system You're going to be missing a lot of things and and as you mentioned before You know there are a host of conditions including premature birth obesity diabetes cardiovascular disease rheumatoid arthritis inflammatory bowel disease and even dementia that are directly connected to poor or health.

"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.

"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.

"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.

"These are one of the categories that being placed in high risk people that really have to be very careful Before deciding fast really and free type twos as you were saying it's It's a little easier because their body does produce insulin and they're not taking insulin which could create a hike gratton episode for two diabetic. Some of them are still on insulin. But you said a very correct statement for diabetic their bodies to produce insulin and theoretically when they stop eating their own insulin. Production will start to come down and that prevent them from having significant severe. Low Sugar Action But people who are type two are still taking some basil and so on. They definitely can talk. I doubt dozes at that for just to go back on the pump s setting They really have to cut down on their Basal Insulin. Even they may change their car issues. That will be very personalized. Very specific tailored program and change to each person would have to have different recommendation. Do you do you feel overall that Muslims at have diabetes understand the risks associated with fasting or not are they defeated on that or I wouldn't say well educated. I don't think anybody really have paid much attention on. Not just for for patient even for physicians. I've been trained here in the United States and I don't recall really getting specific education forum on what to do when I have a patient come through to the clinic But in general Muslim people have good experience with that thing because probably facet. Before they became diabetic they fasted all along with the medication changes. So they have experienced but I don't I don't think they have really good education and that's why we're really trying to increase the awareness for physicians and for the community and community to be more aware of what's going on and what are the risk factors. And what are the things that they need to look for? Which medication that needs to be adjusted than others? This is for the patient the Healthcare Professional. I would say both I mean here and where where what I practice. We twee trying to reach out to the community and we've been giving lectures at the community center and in the same time trying to raise awareness for physicians to to know what Rama Ban and what to look for.

"Problem darts. Because we're human being. We beaten like this person has been fasting for hours. They starving they overindulge and overeat eat. And that's when we really can not get the full benefit of them and is that it for some people is that because their blood sugars low or for example people that take insulin. How does that work for them? Too fast they say they. You know they're taking insulin long acting Basil Insulin. And they're supposed to take insulin when the E so with fasting. Do They not take insulin. 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.

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.

"Hello I'm not L. Samri with diabetes. House your ass Nadia columnist. Recently I've been receiving many emails about the high cost of insulin when I saw a press release from a frazier the makers of the inhalable insulin offering you insulin. At four dollars a day I had to reach out and ask for an interview. Michael CASTAGNA chief executive officer of mankind. The makers of a frazier offered to take my call an elaborate more about their new program. Welcome to my show Mike. Yes so Fraser just made an announcement that you have a new direct purchase program that can really help people with diabetes. Where money's issue when it comes to insulin. Can you tell us a little bit about for your listeners? They they've been wondering what is the first and so far as they take on your food arrives and so it can replace your injectable influenza or you can add a two or tablets so one of these being out there for a couple of years now. The price of on the access in the nineteen came around. We decided to do something about it that we saw and we just replaced out and for for people that use Basal Insulin. Can they also use inhalable insulin? The studies have been done adding the baseball begun adding it to oral just adding the best form but now it's indicated for type one and type two diabetes can people find You know one of the things people could realizes you take a one your food so you're not trying to find your meal and what time. Take your plan injecting public We know one out of five people just because of workplace issues. Lunch meeting So we hope that you can make something. That's discreet. They carry on them But type one type two adding twitter taking her replacing your injectable to lifted are all about know. We came out with a low cash all her because we wanted to be part of the solution gone after and we see people. Fanta brushed under really pressure. Does he four dollar a day? The average person's dosing INC so in requirements. That's a great question. Then that's that's one of the challenges with the prices. Insulin that you don't know some people need thirty six units a day of mealtime control comfortable mainly forty eight six hundred and so you know. That's the part that we toys hard when you're coming up with a fixed price program to guarantee of everybody that's always say as low as four dollars really interesting you know for the first thousand people because we want to see what the demand we ten thousand one hundred The order to see a lot of noise and now the question is how do we get the word out and get people to find out for those that are paying cash or is buffalo plans for their loved one. So what we ought. Clinical trials was the the average person roughly thirty six units a day and the Pie Studies. That's about three twelve cartridges and we did price that at four dollars a day if you were to take three a day You could buy a ninety cal. Twelve hundred bucks four hundred twenty dollars for the month to that not needed twenty four units. We offer a hundred eighty box. That again gives you a little more flexibility on your dosing to meet your meal need and to one dollars a day but it gives you that flexibility and is there is there a certain percentage goes up for every say twelve units that you need or what formula is used to calculate the different price points for people. Think about the dollar thirty three cartridges. How the price point work out four dollars a day if you're taking three doses at the dollar thirty three per meal and we don't know do people take a day or the criminal than a snack and really the best way to think about it. And that's what we were trying to think about. What is a fair price for society You know they make much money but we do believe it's important that people have access to care. And that's you know that starbucks day the bill we think you know if you're paying cash see As we stated depressed over sixty five thousand four the love are spending over two hundred dollars almost fifteen thousand spending over seventy dollars a month so special opportunity cal make a difference for people that are spending a lot of money and how many cartridges are in the packaging packaging ninety count one hundred and eighty boxes so Just depending on what you type patient may take twelve to twenty four units build average. Actually tell them to take hundred eighty bucks and that will give them more than one supply now. Is there anyone that this insulin is not appropriate for yes? There are some restrictions so it's a great question anyone that has the oh. Pd as active smoking. You know you are delivering through the lungs and Bill. You want to make sure that you're not bounding that issue you know because of the surface area if you smoke you know. We don't want want interaction. But that has really worried about putting dry powder on the lung so so it's really those. Those three conditions are really restriction available label. We estimate about one out of five patients for the other. Four out of five people have diabetes are appropriate Kennedy Tour for him and the way the program were to. It's it's for the first thousand people that sign up. They can get it at four dollars a day is that is that correct for January. We shipped our first nations out already this week. So that that's exciting And you know we're we're trying to get the word out through could like yourself and Ada We we think consumers will share the news We'll will goes extend that for a few weeks February. I think we'll wait a couple more days. They call But but even once a January date under the first people and They'll still be fair. Cash price of one of the things have our company. I'll make sure we serve people diabetes. I'm making sure people paying cash. They have the most accurate available for Catherine. And you mentioned the J. B. R. S. so there is indication that children can use his junior after the computerized you vow diabetes research station. They've been branding themselves for type.

We'll be hopefully ready to go to pastry later this year and Of the file death for poodle. That's an area that will work in towards book are indicated for right. Now we see and you also have a An additional savings programs for people that have insurance. How does that work is is so if you have a co pay that means that some insurance cover the hailed insulin? Only ninety eight percent of patients are covered by insurance. We see very few cash. And that's one of the reasons with launch program because we don't think people you know there's a lot of inefficiencies now care system that drive up healthcare costs and so we've been able to do is cut out. All those fitness efficiencies and provide low cash price directly to the patient. So you worked with a party out Florida. All the upon our inventory it's shipped from that facility and we'll get those savings directly to the patient by really eliminating all the fishing but on the other side of the equation is ninety five percent of people that have insurance and former fashion We are covered in the majority of healthcare plan. sometimes there's a minor prior authorization.
