Re: Hello and Help from Shanghai China!

Welcome K!

There is a list of doctors, some of whom practice telemedicine or virtual consults. If you search this list using one of these terms at a time, you will see these doctors. That doesn't help you get the tests done, but maybe someone else will have a suggestion for that.

Re: Fasting blood glucose

I had no idea that vitamin C could fool a glucose meter. Really good to know especially in these days when mega-dosing Vit C is common. It may be meter specific, I don't know. Here is a search for more info. Other than that, a Kraft test might be a good idea, though carbing up (150g) for at least 3...

Re: Fasting blood glucose

Hi TheresaB and Tincup, What do you think about HOMA-IR as a measure of metabolic health? If someone had reading of ketones at .8 with a FBG reading of 100 and recent fasting insulin level of 3.5 (HOMA -IR <1) do you think there is anything to worry about in terms of insulin resistance? This person...

Re: Withings Body Cardio vs Gold Standards of PWV & Body Comp (J Pers Med 2020)

In Europe, this data for improving ones health has been restored to consumers, while in the USA, the data is still restricted. (See Withings: Body Cardio FAQ .) Would be nice as I own one. Meanwhile, I've been using this iHeart fingertip device. https://goiheart.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/image...

Re: Anyone lowered LDL drastically WITHOUT statins ?

Tincup, thanks a lot for your thoughtful post. Your LDL numbers seem to be in the "green area" from the very beginning, when you started out with only LDL 92. Good for you! In my case I have probably "familial hypercholesterinemia", lowering LDL from my high number of 180 is pro...

Re: Anyone lowered LDL drastically WITHOUT statins ?

Did anybody have success with lowering LDL (drastically) with other means or supplements? Cardiologists says LDL must be under 90 at least for the plaques to receed. Back in the day, I ate a whole food, very low fat, vegan diet for 17 years. These results are from 2007. TG 43 mg/dL HDL 48 mg/dL LDL...

Re: "ApoE4 does not influence brain function at young age"

Our results suggest that solely APOE ε4-carriership does not influence brain function at a young age. My personal experience and observation of known ε4 carriers early in life would agree with this statement. One anecdote, my mother was a very bright woman. She died with dementia at 87. I have no i...

What is the elevation where you live? As elevation increases, SpO2 decreases.
