Re: omega-3 index won't budge

Thank you. I will increase the DHA supplementation. The Omegaquant report recommends against trying to decrease omega6, (which I did anyway by much reducing nut/seed intake), but instead to increase omega 3. My Omegaquant report also indicated that I was low in arachidonic acid, which might have res...

omega-3 index won't budge

Good afternoon, I recently received the results of omega-3 testing from Omegaquant. Six months ago, my omega-3 index was 8.1. I was eating a vegan diet with a lot of nuts for protein at that time, so I decided to decrease the intake of nuts and add salmon and sardines to my diet. The only oils I use...

Re: Nocturia issues -- suggestions?

I was evaluated by a Urologist for nocturia, which was a source of frequent night time awakenings. I had made and brought to the appointment a pretty detailed record of what I drank, how much and when, and also how much and when I urinated - about a week's worth of data. Based on the amount voided, ...

Tracking HRV

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is one indicator of both cardiovascular health and general health, a topic covered pretty well in the Wiki. Many of the wearables like Fitbit and the Oura ring track HRV as well as heart rate and other fitness parameters. I have an OUra ring, which tracks HRV only during...

Re: Choline Confusion

I have been confused on this issue as well. I do want to lower my homocysteine from 9.8, but I have read that choline intake raised insulin resistance (appears to be an inconsistent result according the studies Julie cited), but also I think I have read that choline supplementation may raise cholest...

Re: Sleep Tracker

I bought an Oura ring about a month before the polysomnography (PSG) study I underwent about three months ago. The PSG indicated I had mild sleep apnea during REM sleep, and ZERO deep sleep. My sleep doctor recommended a CPAP but did not seem to care about the deep sleep. When I pressed for more inf...
