Wish we could offer you such an overview, Saskia, but nothing like that exists (yet) on the forum.Saskia wrote:There are a lot of threads on the benefits of various supplements. Of course, many of them are expensive, and some are very specific to particular issues that come up in tests. I would love to see an overview of supplement decision rationale from you all, so we can learn from each other. I loved the primer section on supplements as well... learned so much from it. Moderators, if there is such a thread and I overlooked it please let me know!
I am focusing on inflammation. I have yet to do blood tests but previous blood tests for other reasons have never shown insulin resistance. I'm only 45yo so I feel this is my best focus for now (until I get full diagnostics done). Doing 16h fasts to help healing. Still hoping to move towards keto but finding it a bit hard to get ready and committed just yet

Aspirin still may be considered for very select high-risk adults ages 40-70 who are not at increased risk for bleeding, if advised by their doctors.
"For primary prevention, the risk of bleeding and the benefits of reducing heart attack are pretty matched, even to even. So there isn't a lot of gain for taking aspirin," Michos said. Primary prevention is a term for avoiding a first heart attack, stroke or other type of cardiovascular event.
