Re: Help us tweak a consensus statement on diet

Stavia,

So that seems very unusual. I wonder if the unusual combination could give you clues about your metabolism. Hmmm.

Re: Help us tweak a consensus statement on diet

Circular, I don't have a reference, but I recall reading that AGE's weren't a huge issue till >140 BG. All the data I've seen suggest CIMT reversal is accompanied by weight loss. Here is a paper on the Biggest Loser TV show http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002934311003202 My gut te...

Re: Help us tweak a consensus statement on diet

Stavia, And even in mild ketosis (1 - 1.5), my sugars stayed high enough that my brain must have been using them surely....argh...too murky, too murky. I clearly have robust gluconeogenesis! Oh and my bloody fasting insulin went up to 8.2 at the end of that trial. Previously on crappy diet years ago...

Re: Help us tweak a consensus statement on diet

Stavia, When I dropped these carbs to 50 grams and then 30 grams and upped the fat, that's when the sugars rose 24/7. I'm guessing you became much more keto at this point and physiologically insulin resistant. Just like serum lipids risking in a situation of austerity (CR, VLC, fasting &/or etc....

Re: Blood sugar control anecdotes

My early experiences with fasting BG were, it would be 70's-80's if I ate few carbs the day before. The more carbs I ate, in general, the higher my fasting BG. I have a good friend who had the same response. My understanding is that the pancreas has two stages, the first uses stored insulin, the sec...

Re: Blood sugar control anecdotes

Circular, "GeorgeN then why watch biomarkers at all while using CR or low carb diet?" I'm not sure yet. May give info, but how to interpret is the question. "What do the inflammation markers do? Do at least they stay a reliable guide of something?" In the case I linked to of Dr. ...

Re: Blood sugar control anecdotes

Sandra, Here are some thoughts that might be useful in the Type 1.5 case. Bernstein's approach takes load off pancreas to extend the honeymoon period with his LCHF (<30g/day) approach. Prendergast talks about regrowing beta cells. Gundry’s no-lectin program may get at the root autoimmune issue. Gund...

Re: Blood sugar control anecdotes

Stavia, "My blood sugars went UP on a months ketogenic!!!!" I'm not surprised given physiological insulin resistance. http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/2007/10/physiological-insulin-resistance.html Of course A1C's can go up, too due to longer lived RBC's. "Btw my HDL/TGs didnt bu...

Re: help! Dr Gundry's book raises serious questions

The book is a number of years old. Gundry obviously tests and monitors his patients (and himself). He adjusts and goes forward based upon what he observes and learns. I know he has written a new book and is editing it and looking for a publisher. His most recent recommendations are posted here https...

Re: Blood sugar control anecdotes

Ten years ago, I ended up with idopathic afib. I looked at many possible causal issues, including glycemia. A purchase of a glucometer and elevated PP readings ultimately lead from a vegan diet to a meat based VLC one. Subsequent to learning my ApoE4,3 status, my diet has changed yet again to VLC, w...
