Uric Acid Exposed: The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health with Dr. Anna Cabeca and Dr. David Perlmutter

Couch Talk w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

David Perlmutter reveals the exciting and challenging science behind a major health risk that almost no one is talking about. Find out how uric acid is contributing to some of the biggest health risks in modern life, how the standard American diet is the perfect formula for creating dangerous levels of uric acid in your body, and how you can make changes to your diet that will help you lose weight, control your blood sugar, and live a healthier life.  [1:40] As of 2022, David will be 67 years young and he's planning on traveling from Vancouverto Alaska with his wife. The world has a lot of variability and uncertainty right now so it's hard to make detailed plans for the following year, but in some ways, that's good because it forces you to focus on the present. [5:00] David's new book is called Drop Acid. It specifically deals with uric acid and how we discovered it to be a central player in regulating metabolic health. It's not only that uric acid just becomes elevated, it actually plays a causal role in conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. [7:45] Metabolic issues are the number one cause of mortality on the planet. Countries like Japan have been aggressive in intervening with people with high levels of uric acid because of its dramatic associations with death from all causes. [8:25] Risk of death due to cardiovascular disease rises by 38%, stroke by 35%, and for every point of elevation in uric acid above 7 all cause mortality increases by 8%-13%. Having a high uric acid level is associated with a 80% risk of dementia, and a 55% risk of Alzheimer's. [10:00] Testing uric acid levels is fairly routine, but what it indicated wasn't meaningfully understood until recently. David began  looking at uric acid because of his interest in metabolic health and its association to Alzheimer's. The original paper linking uric acid to metabolic issues was published in 1894, and was buried until a researcher named Dr. Richard Johnson started doing studies on it. [12:15] David was listening to a podcast episode with Dr. Peter Attia doing an interview with Dr. Johnson and he was overwhelmed by the information. Every minute was a new pearl of information. David started communicating with Dr. Johnson, which became the basis of a new friendship. [14:30] The genetic mutations that cause humans to have higher uric acid than other mammals happened around 14 to 17 million years ago as an evolutionary survival mechanism. In times of food and water scarcity, uric acid allowed us to increase our blood sugar and retain water which were powerful advantages. [15:45] To this day, we have a component of our genes that want to be thrifty and pack away fat for the next period of food scarcity. Historically, the biggest threats to our survival was in finding food sources and being eaten by predators, and uric acid helped with both of those. [16:55] Certain cultures have evolved this gene and are more at risk of negative effects from it in our modern world. Fructose is the key ingredient to uric acid production in the body and the world is awash with it. The highest rates of obesity are in those genetic populations. [18:50] 50% of American adults will be obese by 2030, including children. 10% of kids between 12 and 18 are hypertensive. This is a direct manifestation of the foods we are eating, primarily fructose. Fructose is metabolized into uric acid and uric acid is doing the dirty work. [20:10] In the context of 99.9% of human habitation on this planet, this adaptation was very advantageous. It wasn't until recently, when our diets have changed so significantly, that it has become a liability. [21:15] Clearing uric acid is where the challenge is. We have lost the function to clear uric acid and with most foods we eat increasing uric acid levels, it can be difficult to keep levels low on the standard American diet. Fructose is the main culprit and average daily consumption increased by 1000% between 1970 and 1990. {24:30] Not all alcohol is associated with high levels of uric acid, but beer is one of the worst contributors. Targeting a specific enzyme called xanthine oxidase can help the body excrete uric acid. [27:20] In menopause, uric acid increases because estrogen plays a major role in the kidney's ability to excrete uric acid. Women who are on estrogen replacement therapy seem to have some protection from their uric acid rising. [28:30] One of the most important discoveries has to do with a master pathway known as AMPK. This pathway is turned on by things like exercise, berberine, and metformin, and when activated, it prevents the body's production of extra glucose and sugar. [31:45] The opposite of AMPK is triggered by two ways: fructose entering the body and uric acid in general. Uric acid is the key to the ability to hibernate, but if you don't plan on spending the four to six months sleeping, you should try to keep uric acid low to maintain your metabolic health. [33:55] For people who are working hard to lose weight and get healthy, reducing uric acid may be the vital tool they need. Picking up a uric acid monitor will give you a good idea where you are right now. We want to have a uric acid level below 5.5 mg/deciliter, with the average level in America being around 6.0. [37:40] The average individual in America, aged 60 or older, has full blown metabolic syndrome. 88% of adults in America have at least one component of metabolic syndrome. [38:30] The LUV diet can be incorporated into your keto, paleo, or vegan plan. The main focus is in getting the fructose out of your life. [39:15] Fruit has fructose but when you eat fruit you're getting that fructose in the context of fiber, bioflavonoids and Vitamin C. Fruit juice consumption is associated with an overall smaller brain and weaker memory. [41:00] Tart cherries were used in the past with women to help them control their gout, and now through the lens of modern research we know why. [41:30] We've known since 1970 that fructose is a threat to metabolic health, despite the $10 billion that was spent to keep us from that information. $500 million was spent to convince the public that corn related sugar was the “safer” sugar. Fortunately the truth is now coming out and we are waking up to the risks of uric acid. [42:40] David published an op-ed challenging the Biden administration on the USDA recommendation that 10% of our daily calorie consumption should come from sugar. This is a perfect example of science coming up against politics. [44:10] The nutritional requirement of sugar is zero. High fructose corn syrup is a toxin to fetal health. When it comes to certain organizations, it's like steering an aircraft carrier, especially when you look at which groups may be funding those organizations. [46:20] The only time we would need fructose in our bodies is when facing starvation, and even then our bodies can create fructose from glucose. [48:25] The quick fix is to eat less salt and your body will be less aggressive in triggering the pathway that leads to high uric acid levels. [49:00] One study looked at two groups of school-aged children, and in one group they placed a water fountain outside their classroom and encouraged them to drink. That group had a 30% reduction in the development of obesity. Fat is a powerful resource for making fresh water in your body, and when we're dehydrated (or our body thinks we're dehydrated) it wants to store fat to survive.     Mentioned in this Episode: Drop Acid by David Perlmutter drperlmutter.com youtube.com/thegirlfrienddoctor dranna.com/show     Always seek the advice of your own physician or qualified health professional before starting any treatment or plans.

In support of my own autoimmune health, I'm taking a sabbatical for the month of December and releasing two of my favorite episodes from the archives that you might have missed. Today's episode is one of the most popular of all time. Autoimmune health depends on blood sugar balance. When our blood sugar gets too high, drops too low, or swings wildly between these extremes, it increases inflammation in our body. If this happens regularly, it leads to chronic inflammation. In today's episode, we'll be sharing diet, lifestyle, and functional medicine tips for achieving and maintaining blood sugar balance. My guest is Dr. Jeff Horacek, a functional medicine physician with over 20 years of experience. Blood sugar is one of his medical specialties.

Today's episode is part of an end of year special series. I am resharing some of my most actionable episodes to help you reduce pain on your period and pain flares in general, and to balance your hormones for better periods, less PMS and healthier cycles. I am sharing these episodes because this time of year is often when some of our endo management strategies can go out of the window (and understandably so!). We might have more sugar, less sleep, more alcohol and more blood sugar dysregulation, and as a result, these can all raise inflammation and give our bodies a hard time when it comes to clearing old and excess hormones. So come January or maybe sooner, we tend to have more PMS, worse periods and more pain. So these episodes are designed to provide you with some tips you can quickly implement if you're worried about your upcoming period, or you're feeling rough and need some tips to improve your symptoms. Now of course, it's natural that we want to indulge a bit over Christmas, and so these episodes are not about telling you to be a saint. Instead, they're about practices you can throw in that can just help lessen some of the impact. I am releasing a couple so you can choose strategies you think will help you most and so you have options, but you certainly don't have to try them all! And whilst I'm here, if you find that you want to learn more about how to eat for endo and for hormone balance, or you get to the end of the festive period and you really just want to improve your systems, I now have my Nutrition for Endo Masterclasses, which are available to buy all year round, unlike my courses. Lucky for you, they're still discounted because I haven't had time to change the prices, so you can still get each masterclass for £29.99 or you can buy the bundle for £50. You could also ask for them as a Christmas present! Finally, thank you for listening to this podcast this year, and for sticking with me even with my sporadic release dates as I navigate all of these new courses and offerings with recording my free content. I am wishing you a wonderful festive break (if you celebrate) and a very happy New Year. So, without further ado, let's get to today's episode. I really hope it helps you manage some of your symptoms over this festive period. Seven Foods to Alleviate Oestrogen Dominance with Endometriosis If you've listened to my podcast recently, you've likely heard a lot about oestrogen dominance or excess oestrogen and the problems these two imbalances can bring. Oestrogen in itself isn't a ‘bad' hormone - it's a wonderful hormone that plays a crucial role in our menstrual cycle and our overall health. But too much or too high in relation to progesterone is where the problems arise, and these problems can make our experience of endo worse. So what is oestrogen dominance? Oestrogen dominance occurs when the ratio of oestrogen to progesterone is too high, this can happen when progesterone is low, oestrogen is high or both! Excess oestrogen is when there is too much oestrogen circulating the body, and this would be likely cause oestrogen dominance, providing of course that progesterone isn't also too high (which in my experience with clients at least, is generally less common). Why does oestrogen dominance occur? We deep dive into this topic in other interviews and episodes (so check the links below), but to give you an overview, here are some of the common causes: Stress Imbalanced blood sugar Gut health issues Deficiencies, such as zinc Heavy alcohol consumption Overburdened liver Xenoestrogens Whilst taking a holistic approach looking at all of these areas is advisable, eating certain foods can help your body to remove any old or excess oestrogen and adding these foods in can be a great way to get started with healing any imbalances. Here are seven of my favourite foods for alleviating oestrogen dominance with endometriosis: Dandelion root tea or coffee to help support the liver with clearing out old and excess oestrogen. Be careful that you're not buying a caffeinated dandelion and coffee blend - we're looking for dandelion alone. You can drink it as a herbal tea or buy it roasted, then grind and have as coffee! It makes a lovely black coffee or latte. Broccoli sprouts provide a big, concentrated dose of SGS (sulforaphane glucosinolate) , a plant compound that also helps the liver to detoxify oestrogen and break it down in a healthy way Cruciferous vegetables such as kale, broccoli, cabbage and Brussel sprouts aid oestrogen detoxification. The active compound in cruciferous veggies is a nutrient called I3C (indole-3-cabinol), which further breaks down into SGS (sulforaphane glucosinolate) and DIM (diindolymethane) and both play a big role in supporting the liver with oestrogen detoxification. In fact, these nutrients are so powerful that you may recognise them - they're often found in oestrogen clearance supplements! Probiotic foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi and yoghurt help create a healthy gut microbiome and ensure that the bacteria which helps to eliminate oestrogen, the estrobolome, is well supported and that beta-glucuronidase, the enzyme that reactivates oestrogen (causing it to be reabsorbed into the blood stream), is prevented from getting too high. A caveat here is that if you have SIBO you may find probiotic foods aggravating. I would start slowly with one tablespoon and increase to tolerance over time. B6 foods such turkey, fish, seeds, nuts like pistachios, lentils, eggs, and a moderate amount of organic pasture-raised red meat helps to detoxify old and excess oestrogen and raise progesterone levels. Lignans from nuts and seeds, particularly pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and potentially flax (if you respond well to it) help bind and remove oestrogen. Flax can have weak oestrogenic effects, and is often recommended to help lower oestrogen dominance symptoms . However, I recommend being mindful here as I am not the only practitioner to have witnessed endo symptoms and oestrogen dominance symptoms worsening from flax, so I would just see how you personally respond. Having said that, lots of doctors, nutritionists and health coaches see an improvement, but just have an awareness when you try and if you try flax.

Exercise is arguably one of the fastest ways to decrease blood sugar and insulin as well as prime the body to burn more fat.

Take control of your Metabolic Health w/ BioCoach's new at-home A1C test: https://bit.ly/3DSMIwk Use code HIH10 to save! Link to video, images and research: https://bit.ly/3GzUahA Time Stamps: 0:00 Intro 0:05 Insulin resistance is the root cause of many of today's premature deaths and chronic disease expression. 0:32 Moving/exercising, especially in the post meal window, makes changes that decrease glucose levels and make your skeletal muscle more sensitive to the effects of insulin. This leads to reduced insulin output by your pancreas. 1:40 Insulin is involved in post meal processing and anabolic reaction. It helps build. It helps replenish depleted glycogen. It helps, in the post exercise window, to increase amino acid biosynthesis. 1:58 Exercise is favorable, but it is catabolic, meaning that it tears down. 2:23 Post meal glycemic levels flatten with exercise. Diabetics tend to use less insulin on days when they exercise and blood sugar levels decrease more quickly. 4:48 During exercise your muscles become a glucose sponge; muscle glucose uptake increases in an intensity and duration dependent manner. Glucose is needed to make ATP in your muscles. 5:40 Exercise increases the expression and sensitivity of GLUT4 transporter. GLUT4 can be desensitized by persistent elevation of glucose levels. 9:35 Insulin is a potent inhibitor of adipose tissue lipolysis, the ability of your fat cells to release stored lipids. 10:10 Pre-workout or intra-workout carbohydrates may slow down your fat lipolysis, or fat burning. If fat loss is your goal, you may want to consider exercising in a fasted state. 11:30 When you exercise, your adrenal glands release adrenaline and noradrenaline. These enhance the liberation of stored fat from your fat cells to use for cellular energy when you exercise. 11:50 Fasting and exercise both elevate adrenals. Prolonged fasting and overexercising can be hard on your adrenals. 12:40 High insulin reduces the normally a progressive rise in free fatty acid oxidation during exercise. 13:15 One Legged Study: The exercised leg increased its muscle glycogen stores to levels twice that of the sedentary leg. Exercise increases the ability of your moving muscles to store glycogen. 13:50 When you move your muscles, you are depleting glycogen with the muscle. Exercise helps your muscles become more insulin sensitive by depleting glycogen within the muscle, causing muscles to be more insulin sensitive in the post exercise window. A glycogen-depleting workout is a good way to kickoff your fast. 15:25 After dinner starts your overnight fast. Perhaps you could take a brisk walk or lift weights before dinner to blunt the post meal glycemic index level. 15:50 Doing your post meal exercise when your post meal blood glucose level peaks, has the best ability to reduce glucose levels. This peak is most often 45 to 60 minutes after a meal. 16:23 Eat early. Sleep early. Eat your carbs commensurate with your physical activity level. Go for a walk after your meal. 17:15 Insulin sensitivity can be boosted for up to 48 hours after a single exercise session. Exercise increases the transport of glucose from the bloodstream into muscles by a factor of 34. 18:45 Eccentric exercise, slow descent, muscle damaging effects can cause a transient reduction in insulin sensitivity. Moderation is key. 19:40 You are most insulin sensitive in the morning. You become more insulin resistant as the day progresses. Exercise when you can. Afternoon resistance training can blunt your dinner glycemic index. 20:45 Sprinkle exercise throughout the day. Researchers call them exercise snacks. These snacks can be as simple as going for walks. 21:45 Big surges glycemic variability/glycemic levels are a big problem.

In the early phase of adrenal fatigue, you can see hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and, in an advanced phase of adrenal fatigue, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is the usual presentation. The thing is, you may not notice a problem with your blood sugar levels, but that doesn't mean it's terrific. It is essential to monitor and know the symptoms of having a diet full of food content that send your blood glucose on a roller coaster ride of high and low levels. These glucose level swings can result in damage to your blood vessels, raising your cholesterol, and put you at risk for heart disease. Dr. J and Evan recommend having yourself tested (not guess) and checking the food you include in your food template because they can be the reason for your chronic issues for so long. ===================================== Subscribe on I-Tunes: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/itunes Review us at: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/itunes Visit us at: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com Have a question: http://www.beyondwellnessradio.com/question

We're trapped in a web of narratives. Right now, the United States is crippled by an obesity epidemic that's getting bigger, made worse by the endless wave of related "facts" coming at us from every screen. If there is a pill for every ill, why are we so sick? Shawn Stevenson has been on a 20-year mission to learn and research where we went wrong and how we can get out of this mess. Forget about "burning fat" and instead learn the facts that will free us from this prison of chronic illness. Shawn's exit strategy is to share information from an objective place, without an agenda, and truly respect the human body as a complex lab. Your value is not based on a number. Fat is not your enemy, it's more of an overprotective parent. Let's step back, look within, and see what we find. We also talk about: The current state of health A nuanced approach to obesity and weight loss Fat: what it is and why we need it Gut health and immunity  The biology of fear  How do we move forward?

Are you trying to manage diabetes with your diet? What if I told you that you could ditch dieting and lower your blood sugar at the same time? That sounds crazy, right? You are probably thinking "yeah - I could do that but my numbers would be crazy and my medical team would NOT be happy with me!.” Well, what if I told you that you could eat what you want when you want…including sugar... WHILE reducing your A1C and enjoying the freedom to enjoy your life again! On the show today, I'm talking with a fellow intuitive eating dietitian, Amanda Ciprich about how to manage your diabetes intuitively! Amanda Ciprich is a registered dietitian who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes almost 10 years ago. During the early stages of her diagnosis, she felt herself going down a path of restriction and obsession, which left her feeling weighed down and consumed by her diabetes diagnosis. She craved the freedom to enjoy her life without diabetes getting in the way and knew there had to be a way to find her love for food once again. Amanda ultimately decided to pursue a career as a registered dietitian to teach other people living with diabetes and their families how to manage their blood sugars without giving up the foods they love. Amanda's approach gives you tools that incorporate prioritizing yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically so you can navigate any scenario that life with diabetes throws at you. Listen in to learn more : Does weight play a role in diabetes management?

I first found out about Nutrisense from my friend Mia, and wanted to try it because I had some borderline high fasting glucose levels last year.

If You Want to Take Back Control of Your Metabolic Health, You Should: Start monitoring your bodies reaction to foods through a CGM or other methodology Ensure that you are moving your muscles after eating to stabilize your glucose Focus on your dietary patterns and get back to basics to see the results you are searching for   One of the biggest root causes of hormone imbalance facing over 130 million Americans is metabolic dysfunction. Metabolic dysfunction can lead to insulin resistance, inflammation, and a host of other chronic illnesses that you may not even realize are linked to your metabolism. The good news is that with a few mindset and lifestyle changes, you can improve your metabolism, overall health, and long-term longevity.   Take Back Control of Your Metabolic Health Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of the metabolic health company Levels, and Associate Editor of the Internation Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention. Dr. Casey works to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tech-enabled tools. Her philosophy combines smart, personalized, and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices to help others take their metabolic health back into their own hands.   Looking at Your Metabolism Like Never Before Through her work at Levels, Dr. Casey and her team are able to access nutritional data in a way that has never been seen before. By getting to the bottom of which foods affect you and your glucose on a personal level, you can figure out what is best for you and your body.  Knowledge is power when it comes to a lot of things, especially when it comes to your metabolic and hormonal health. Foods you may think are healthy for you could actually be causing a significant glucose response, which is why it is important to equip yourself with the information to serve your body in the best way possible.   The Key to Longevity Is Your Metabolism As women, we need to be on top of our blood sugar more than anything. Your metabolism can impact everything from how you feel to how you age, which is why it is so crucial to identify your root causes and get them under control in order to increase your overall health and longevity. While your average doctor may not know about the importance of focusing on metabolic health, this episode is your sign to get down to the basics and focus on your daily patterns in order to preserve your health through all stages of life. Are you ready to focus on creating more resilience for your metabolism? Let me know which of Dr. Casey's tips resonated the most with you in the comments section of the episode page.   Quotes: “There is a mismatch between the effort and the outcomes, and I think a lot of that lies in the fact that we are eating these food products that we don't really know what they are doing to our bodies.” (15:01) “It is kind of this magical part of the body that can help you bring down your blood sugar all by itself. And that is why a walk, even though it is gentle, you are moving all these major muscle groups, the quads, the hamstrings, it all has to be activated.” (32:00) “We are flipping the switch from glucose burning to fat burning intentionally, and we are pushing our body to utilize its long-term storage, and we are mobilizing fat. And that is metabolic flexibility.” (35:54) “It is nothing crazy; it is nothing out of control; it is just timing things in a way that is going to optimize all aspects of my blood sugar but isn't taking more than cumulatively an hour during the day.” (41:14) “A lot of these things I think we can feel like it is totally out of our control or we have to go towards hormones or whatever it is to manage these things. So to at least know there is something, a knob we can turn, a lever we can pull, to at least in some way impact these things, I think that's pretty empowering in its own right.” (45:47)   In This Episode Why adopting a routine of monitoring your response to food is key to understanding your body (14:39) Learn about the Coca-Cola experiment and how it can help you blunt a blood sugar response (25:39) The role of muscle movement and strength training when it comes to metabolic health (32:10) How stabilizing your blood sugar levels can impact your hormones and symptoms overall (42:20) Tips for creating swaps for the things that you love that will leave you wanting more (54:12)   Resources Mentioned: Use Promo Code drmariza for 15% Off Your Organifi Order Here Join Levels Here Levels article about common dietary patterns for good health Levels Health Website Levels Health Blog Follow Dr. Casey on Instagram Follow Levels Health on Instagram   Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative   Related Episodes:  Essentially You Episode #236: The Truth About Metabolic Dysfunction and How To Address It Head-On with Dr. Casey Means Essentially You Episode #268: The Number One Hormone Imbalance Connected to Stubborn Weight Gain

Fellow anti-diet dietitian Lauren Newman joins us to discuss how to manage diabetes without weight loss and restriction, why the restrict-binge cycle and weight cycling are especially harmful to blood-sugar regulation, why carbohydrates are necessary for health, how to take the focus away from nutritional minutiae and numbers, and so much more.
