Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions: Crystal: Hello! My question for you is about my 13 year old daughter. She has had trouble with her body for 3 years now. She used to be a flexible, active, normal kid. In 12/2018 she got very sick with something similar to mono. Fever, lots of mouth sores for about a week, and then super tired for over a month then constant cold sores for 5 months. 01/2020 she started having constant lower back pain and her back seems to be locked up. She can't even reach her knees. She has seen lots of doctors with almost no answers. She was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. But it is not what is causing her problems. She did the big 5 but there weren't any obvious answers. We are now looking at an AMPS diagnosis. Can you give any direction on healing/fixing AMPS? Thanks for all you do! Samantha: Hi doctor Cabral! Is (peri) menopause belly something we can get rid of, or is it just something we'll have to live with for the rest of our lives? I'm a very healthy and active, in late 40s and noticing that my belly fat is increasing more and more. I wear CGM, have normal sugar, fast for 16 hours daily and lift weights 5 times a week.. still nothing helps. I don't have to measure my female hormones to know that they are declining, because that's inevitable with age. I would love to hear your thoughts about this. Thanks a million! Anonymous: I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the knowledge you share this us! It has truly changed my life. A few weeks ago, i was down to like 5 foods. I reacted to everything including multivitamins, L- glutamine, herbs, even the DNS shake. I was starting to lose hope until I realized that most of my issues with salicylates and histamines could be partly due to nutrient deficiencies. I started taking the equilife multivitamin pills and that same day, I was able to have a smoothie with all the herbs, veggies and fruits that I had missed so much because I couldn't have salicylates! I can now also use L-glutamine without getting depressive symptoms, so I am using it to heal my gut lining which is really damaged. Feel hopeful once again! Thank you so much for everything! Angela: My twin boys & I all came down with a flu. We are going on 8 days now with fevers around 101-103 degrees on average (t got as high as maybe 105/106 w/1 child). I took them to see the doctor who knows that antibiotics are a last resort for us. The doctor was ok with waiting until this Saturday (7 days into the symptoms), so when we were still spiking a fever on Saturday I bit the bullet & had us start on antibiotics. The doctor says that anything over 100.4 is considered a fever high enough for antibiotics. I thought I heard you say that for your kids you don't really do much until they hit above 104 degrees. Is that right? Also now that we are on the antibiotics what can we do afterwards to help our gut? I was in the middle of my last month of CBO. Do you suggest I start over? Megan: Hi! I've been struggling after the birth of my second son. It was my second C-section in 14 months and my body was wrecked. I have a vaginal yeast infection I can not get rid of as well as stomach ulcers from taking too much ibprophen and Tylenol… I'm at a loss on what to do and if I should continue taking Pepcid two times a day. I've been drinking aloe water that I juice. How do I go about this and what's going on?

Episode 2285 - On this Friday's show, Vinnie Tortorich speaks with Drs. Laura Buchanan and Matt Calkins about the Food Compass, metabolic health, how to "right the ship" in healthcare, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2023/01/right-ship-drs-laura-buchanan-matt-calkins-epsiode-2285 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS RIGHT THE SHIP Vinnie welcomes the couple back to the show, and they start off addressing the Food Compass recently put out by Tufts University. (2:00) There is a pandemic in metabolic health that needs to be addressed. (9:00) Some people have taken better control by using a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) to see immediate results of how certain foods affect them. Vinnie suggests that there needs to be a lot more doctors that are coming into the system with better nutritional knowledge. (13:30) There needs to be continued advocation for low-carb lifestyles; Vinnie hopes that incoming doctors will "right the ship." Vinnie asks what Laura and Matt are seeing as they start their careers in medicine. Laura has trained directly under prominent low-carb doctors. Vinnie believes that it's necessary for intelligent discourse among doctors. Matt shares a couple of points about T2D and outpatient treatment that are important for success, even from 5 years ago. (35:20) They talk about how today's medical curriculum still needs to be updated. They also emphasize the need to create a "new normal" of people not needing so many medications. They discuss how policies like "Meatless Mondays" in schools are bad policies; the people become an experiment. (49:00) There have been cases where children have died from being on a vegan diet from lack of proper nutrients; as a result, there are places in Europe that have banned children from being put on vegan diets. You can find both Dr. Laura Buchanan and Dr. Matt Calkins on Twitter and other platforms. Laura is on Twitter ; on Dr. Tro's website ; and on Substack "AgingSuccesfully" .

One of THE BEST tools for your health is a CGM, continuous glucose monitor. It helps you effortlessly understand what foods work for you and even how stress and sleep impact your blood sugar allowing you to make changes in real time. A CGM also allows you to see your glucose variability (the difference between your highs and lows) which may be as important as how high your blood sugar runs. It's an amazing tool and Nurtisense has my favorite interface with their app and dietitian support!

A former 350-pound doctor turned to literature to figure out what works which made him unlearn some practices partnered with a doctor who early on knows she wants to integrate metabolic health into her medical practice. Despite having different backgrounds in medicine, doctors Tro Kalayjian and Laura Buchanan now collaborate to give their patients the best care possible. They do patient bonding, a means to establish trust and rapport with the patient. To address the underlying reason for the health issues, the healthcare team considers the patient's strengths, weaknesses, failures, and even appetites. In this episode, these two doctors share their perspectives on what drives the messaging for nutrition, their passion for establishing rapport and connection with patients, and the future of health tech.Listen until the end to know their fantastic announcement to help your health improve.Quick Guide01:23 Introduction12:08 Nutrition messaging and results dictated by funding, religion, dogma22:12 Deep diving into research24:32 Lessons from the CGM about nutrition27:14 What sugar does to blood vessels31:40 The importance and ways to make patient bonding happen44:01 Scaling the health tech, culture, empathy, and critical thinking48:20 Insights on intermittent fasting and metabolism52:27 Questions you want somebody to ask you54:00 Closing statements and contactsGet to know our guestDr. Tro Kalayjian, MD and Dr. Laura Buchanan work together to make a difference in patient care. With their Doctor Tro app, they aim to build accountability and a community addressing metabolic health."I can tell you that we have CGMs and scales and coughs and ketone meters, and if you don't use them, it will nudge you into using them. And, yeah, there's all this fancy stuff. But I think, I almost don't, like the fancy stuff is helpful because eating is something we want to be subconscious about and we have to rip it out of the subconscious. So, the tools like the CGM are so irreplaceable, but it's the act of what's really replaceable is the act of taking something subconscious, and sparking change."Connect with them:Website: https://doctortro.comAging Successfully: https://agingsuccessfully.substack.comEpisode snippets11:04 - 12:00 - Low-carb always does better13:45 - 14:06 - The epicenter of misinformation25:31 - 26:16 - What the CGM taught Laura about her health29:20 - 29:42 - Sugars are attacking blood vessels33:49 - 34:24 - The need to establish rapport and motivate the patient45:04 - 45:49 - It's not easy to scale the tech and culture50:16 - 51:04 - Factors that affect metabolism Connect with Dr. Ovadia: Twitter iFixHearts Website Stay Off My Operating Table Website Amazon Theme Song : Rage AgainstWritten & Performed by Logan Gritton & Colin Gailey(c) 2016 Mercury Retro RecordingsFollow Jack HealdTwitter: @JackHeald5Website: CultYourBrand.com
Short Answer: From the trials, statins seem to reduce heart disease risk and total mortality, but it is impossible to separate this from conflicts of interest and industry funding. There are plausible mechanisms by which they may hurt mitochondrial function and promote soft tissue calcification. Dietary sulfur appears to lower cholesterol. While Lester Morrison showed 1500 milligrams per day of chondroitin sulfate could reduce cardiac events 7-fold, this has a theoretical potential to hurt the microbiome. My preferred way of getting sulfur is 1.2-1.8 grams per kilogram bodyweight of total non-collagen protein, with an emphasis on animal protein.

Hello and welcome to Episode 2 in our series "Revelation Expectations." This is Apostle Charles Wright, and this is Stephanie Wright.Thank you for joining us today.We are on a journey through the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the last book in the Bible.We encourage you to listen to the first podcast in this series to establish a good foundation for future episodes. Revelation is a beautiful book about Jesus, His mercy to us, and the unsaved. He prolongs his return because God does not want any to be lost. If you do not know Him, now would be a good time to invite Jesus into your heart as your Savior and Lord.Today, we will start our journey into the seven churches beginning with Chapter 2 in Revelation. Chapters 2 and 3 are all "red letter," meaning these are the words of Jesus as He tells the Apostle John to take his message to the "angel" of each church.These seven churches are first listed in Chapter 1, verse 11: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. But remember the message is also to us for Revelation Chapter 1 verse 3, says: 3 Blessed is he that reads and hears the words of this prophecy, and keeps those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."Let's get started:If you want to contact us or comment on this podcast, please visit our website at cgmissions.com/podcast where all episodes are available by category in series format.

How is your sleep with T1D? Do you wake up in the middle of the night to your CGM alerts and have trouble going back to sleep? Are you having trouble falling asleep because of anxiety about low blood sugar? Sleep is the bane of the existence for many folks with T1D, and it's something we don't talk enough about. In this episode, Dr. Mark coaches Nikki about how she can get better sleep with T1D. Nikki says that she has not gotten a full night's sleep in more than 30 years and T1D is to blame. She sees herself as an "anxious person" and it may be that view of herself is to blame for some of her challenges with sleep. Listen as Dr. Mark coaches Nikki to see that with a mindset shift and some improved sleep hygiene, she can get a good night's rest, even with type 1 diabetes!

Easy healthy habits coming up! Yes, exercise! However, what if it was easier than that to get more energy and boost your overall well being? We do certain things regularly. Your daily routine and mine are probably very similar day to day. That is what you do this morning in the first 10-30 minutes of your morning is probably similar to what you do every day. What if you could take 50% of those habits and make them more beneficial? Without lifting a weight or breaking a sweat? Even 20% healthier… What would that do for you? Twenty percent more energy, 20% less tired, 20% more focus during your morning activities.. you get the idea. This episode is all about the small upgrades that have become daily habits for me over the recent months and years. I'm sharing them with you here in the hope they make you reflect on what you're already doing that could make you healthier easily! The problem with so many choices is often vetting out the quality products from the opportunists. It's making sure it's healthy – especially if you do it daily. I hear you when you say it's overwhelming and there's another one around the corner. I don't fall easily. When I do I fall all the way. So, I've vetted for you the ones I love. Easy Healthy Habits for 2023 Anyone else start the hot water within minutes of waking most days? With adaptogens you won't even know are there, your hormones are getting a boost with every sip of Four Sigmatic Coffee. Listen to my recent Flipping 50 podcast with Danielle Ryan Broida to learn more about adaptogens, specifically mushrooms, and you'll wonder why we aren't all doing these simple things daily. Recently what I've noticed from testing my blood sugar levels (first thing, after whatever is in my mug is that my blood sugar responds better to coffee than to matcha if they're treated equally. That is, I add coconut milk and a dash of stevia to both or a don't, but to both. The value of a wearing a continuous blood glucose monitor(CGM) for a month is priceless if you're a woman in midlife flirting with insulin resistance. Anyone can do it. I'll provide a special link I use with clients and students so that they can benefit as we work together. For instance, right now our members are going through a month kickstart with me using CGMs. If Coffee, Then This If I choose coffee and matcha isn't in my mug first thing (or second, after about 16 ounces of lemon water, sole, or apple cider vinegar) it's going in a pre-workout shake. Matcha is the perfect combo of chill pill and alert hocus focus. It's a little easier on my gut personally than usual acidic coffees. (Though Four Sigmatic by the way is low acidic compared to other coffees). Currently, I juggle the dual needs of my gut and blood sugar. When isn't that true in life. I do find that when my gut is in good shape, coffee is not a problem. When I both drink coffee responsibly (2 mugs is my limit), and have optimal gut health, I can do it fine. Since I switched to matcha in my morning mug two and a half years ago, with the exception of maybe 6 mornings, my gut feels better, and overall, I feel better all day. I don't have that same short-lived pick-me-up from coffee or what I'd describe as a gnawing my gut. I enjoy sustained energy and a calmer gut. I'll link to a video I shared with the Flipping 50 community back in 2015 about research on Matcha's fat burning boost potential. Whether you're doing interval training – as in the study- or strength training, which I think we can safely extrapolate to say - the combination of matcha before the activity is also going to elevate fat burning after significantly. AND…. However, there are dozens of matcha makers now. Just one is quadruple screened, Pique Tea. And it matters. Heavy metals, mold, and other toxins are common due to the way matcha is grown, and many brands aren't pure as they claim, while others don't even claim to be! They've added fillers (like brown rice!?) and have very little matcha. If it's something you do every day, pay extra attention. We have more everyday stressors now than ever even when we're conscious of them. Going Green Enhancing your alkalinity is one of the best things you can do for your health, and any weight loss goals. Especially if you are trying to do low carb – as in keto. I personally recommend my clients bump their veggie intake to 6-9 cups a day. That would shock a carnivore community, I know. It's the balance to additional protein from animal sources required to maintain muscle. Doing so will bump your acidity. Optimal pH levels are conducive to health. Acidic environments are conducive to disease. Challenged by the idea of that many veggies? Mighty Maca, from my friend – shall we say our community friend, Dr. Anna Cabeca – is a way to bring in another adaptogen PLUS get the alkalinity we want and need for a healthier body. You can't lose weight, and keep it off, with the kind of energy and feelings of freedom we want- with habits that sabotage your health. Knocking your inner environment into acidity, exercising to burnout, soreness or couch compensation will not help. Dr. Anna's Mighty Maca meets a trilogy of needs. First, this greens powder where she's tucked a dose of the adaptogen maca, requires a liquid. My favorite way to drink this is just in a tall glass of water or dumped into a small bottle of water as I leave the gym – it's not been uncommon for us to workout together and after I've provided the exercise sequence, she has a sleeve of Mighty Maca in her pocket. I shake and go. Boom – it's already helping to hydrate and make it easy to drink another 8-16 ounces because it's got a lightly lemony fresh taste. This is not your toxic crystal-crap but it's the same type of convenient packet. The maca – is an adaptogen I have used myself for almost 30 years – blended into smoothies, or taken in capsules from my friends at Femminessence (if you prefer), or this way. This is a game-changer for women in midlife. If you're adrenals are taxed… and you're not doing it, consider it daily but not off your grocery store shelf. There are 11 strains of maca and you need a clinical grade of specific types. The greens – Dr Anna knows it's hard to fit in 6-9 cups of veggies a day for most women (my recommendation for women in midlife) and that with a need for more PROTEIN than they've ever needed – or been aware of before – there's an equal need to boost veggie intake to achieve a better pH balance. Her book Keto Green-16 outlines the benefits of a keto diet (at least short term) for women AND the need for pH support while you do it. Want to understand this better? Don't miss an interview with Dr Anna January 11, 2023. (I'll link to the registration page. I'm inviting Dr Anna to answer a few questions about this and more. And we're going to talk about stress, hormones, and cravings, and how to juggle what you want with signs and symptoms. Seeing this later? Miss it and want it? Let us know! Secret Sauce for Hair, Skin, and Libido Midlife changes in hair (thinning and loss for some women), skin (thinning making visibility of wrinkles and reduced elasticity), and reduced desire for sex (dryness or pain) are common among women in our community. I started something for improved recovery from exercise (due to mitochondria health) that I was skeptical of AND yet tried it anyway. Before I go further, you need to know, I'm a tough sell. I feel pretty good. Most of the time, I think, “this s*# works” .. the formula I created for women over 50 just works. So, I have no crazy card to play for bringing women back from the dead… or losing 100 lbs.., other than, if we remove the obstacles (overtraining, undereating, undersleeping) and improve the amount of stimulation for muscle, bone and your brain, we're going to have improvements. Sometimes that's 100lbs off, others it's 10lbs and 14 inches, others it's energy and libido back. I didn't count on a hair or libido kick, but I got one. I began taking C60 Purple Power just before my move in May actually. And I haven't stopped. In three weeks I noticed thicker hair and my stylist noticed I had new hair growth (brown not gray) at my next appointment. I started taking c60 for the mitochondria support we can all use as we age. AND… my vision is better, too. I DO recover better from exercise though it took me a minute to realize it. I'd started doing high intensity high impact intervals a little more often. (3 or 4 as opposed to 1-2 x/week) and no down time. There was no hobble off the couch. So, it went unnoticed and appreciated until I got thoughtful about the fact that I earned a little soreness that I didn't have. How I Do It My favorite way to add C60 is a few drops into my coffee (cinnamon flavored is to die for!) or matcha mug (coconut oil) in the morning. That's it. Nothing extra or new habit just… it's sitting beside the coffee or matcha, so I don't miss it. (Recently there are gummies – I still prefer the drops) You could if you prefer use avocado oil on salads (but I have another avo oil I love instead and fear I'll forget later in the day). You can also now use a rollerball application on your face and neck! LOVING that!! Linking to a video for you here. Look, I'm 59 in a couple months, I've got wrinkles … but I do get compliments on my skin regularly and this has given me a noticeable difference. I like the inside-out method vs topical personally! Superpower Energy My breakfast or pre-workout snack of choice lately is a little almond or coconut yogurt substitute (no sugar added, and no soy please) with Flipping50 protein powder and … a new product from Timeline Nutrition, Mitopure. It's a derivative of pomegranate but you could never eat your way to this much. Little packets of powder (or capsules if you prefer – which I do not!) can be added to a smoothie, or in my case, I stir the berry-flavored powder right into my high protein pre-workout yogurt bowl. Here's what I've noticed… after 3 weeks. Just a reminder, I'm a tough sell. I already do a lot of things to my advantage as witnessed above/before this point in the episode! But I feel more stable energy all day. I am really enjoying this heightened desire for moving. I can't even explain it! I'm an 8x Ironman…so yes, I naturally may like to move more than the next person. Yet, I've gone through exercise intolerance, cortisol imbalance, and adrenal stress during my menopause transition. I get better results now in about 3 hours of exercise a week than I did with 20 just a couple years ago. That puts a girl at a point where less is more and compliance is easy! I'm different with Mitopure. A little more alive. If you can't tell, I'm struggling to put words to the feelings. But with no other changes in my routine, this has really been a bit of a surprise. I'm sometimes quick to say no, not interested. But the research is too compelling in this case. So openminded, expecting nothing, I'm pleasantly surprised. And again... it's easy. That's the biggest test for me. Lunch and Dinner Upgrades Eating organ meats? Me either. Planning to? Me either. Look, I AM that girl who does certain things because they're good for me. But I'm not doing liver or gizzards or anything of the sort. So, my chef friend (who cooks for the likes of Barbra Streisand and Tom Cruise) dreamed up this ingenious way to infuse organ meats into spices you'll love. I sprinkle the Garlicky one on salads, veggies, meats, and seafood, even eggs on the occasion I have them. I stir it into a garlic aioli dip I make. That just about covers my meals! Chef James Barry's Pluck is amazing. All the benefits of organ meats – potentially one of the most nutrient dense foods available – without the hassle or smell. (Use the code: FLIPPING50) Last but not least, are you still using olive oil? I know, Olive oil, olive oil, olive oil… right? But a large percent of olive oil is not good for you, it's rancid. Yet, they sell it off the shelves like hot cakes to people thinking they're virtuous and Mediterranean! Ava Jane's Kitchen woke me up to this sad truth several years ago and I switched to avocado oil, which is better for the high temps I often use anyway. On occasion I'll use an expensive EVO or coconut oil, but I'm cooking most with Avocado oil. The AJK Colima Sea Salt from Ava Jane's is an experience! It's super coarse. You use your hands to crunch the salt. I use it on all those roasted and grilled veggies and on pizza crusts or chips made from brown rice tortillas. You can try it or join the club and have it delivered at the right frequency based on your cooking needs. These are great gifts for the foodie, or healthy foodie too. None of these daily little additions are “extra” or crazy. They're just an upgrade from what you may have sitting on your shelf that can boost your health and wellness without a drop of sweat or breathlessness. If you're a skeptic, I get it. How nice to dream that just eating healthy from the garden or farmer's market, avoiding processed foods, and getting exercise, time outdoors and sleep are enough. In the moment we're in, the chance is slim that though these habits are the foundation, we'll need to reduce toxins in and around us now and in the future. The benefit though is more energy and more you than you may realize you can experience. Your Turn I encourage you to go through your day, your typical day. Where could you upgrade? Could an easy health boost come from the type of coffee or tea you start your day with the oil, spice, or salt you prepare food with. Consider what you wish was different or better about now, even if it's good. In our show notes today, you'll find many links to the trusted resources I share.

The number one problem for people being unhealthy is the toxic food environment, such as processed and highly palatable foods. Most companies drive the reward centres of the consumers' brains, similar to a drug, which makes unhealthy products hard to avoid. [16:43] Calories In, Calories Out: Calories Matter Eating less and exercising more, creating the negative energy balance that causes weight loss, is the standard advice for people who are dieting. However, it is not the most effective. A hormonal condition may be the number one factor in metabolic health and ideal body weight. Artificial dichotomy has two camps: the calorie camp, or the energy balance camp, and the hormonal camp or the insulin camp. Doctors and patients should consider the difference between deprivation and listening to your body. [26:15] Do You Know There's a Personal Fat Threshold? What Is It's Purpose? The personal fat threshold has the ability to store fat as energy. Unhealthy fats are created when the subcutaneous fat can't store any more energy and goes into the viscera, and as the viscera creates abdominal fat, inflammation sets in. Americans have a much higher personal fat threshold than Asians. [36:53] The Continuous Glucose Monitor Is More Important Than You Think! Here's Why Some individuals want to start monitoring and preventing diabetes, yet potential conflict is present as conferences are only available for those with Type-2 Diabetes. Patients are often seen with high levels of CGM in the morning and low levels of CGM in the afternoon, but some patients are the opposite. Paying attention to how the individual feels, getting them on a scale, and doing a body composition, is almost better than doing CGM. [41:12] Do You Have Nutrition Concerns?

When it comes to protein, some women simply need to focus on it as a staple in each meal and other women are mindful of protein but are often quite surprised they are eating about half of what they need per day. When it comes to wanting to build lean muscle mass, boost your metabolism, improve insulin sensitivity (thus overall hormone balance) or just have more energy we need our lean muscle. Because of this we lift weights and eat protein right and it turns to muscle? Not quite. Turns out triggering muscle protein synthesis (AKA building muscle) requires us to be a bit more precise in how much and how often we eat protein - but once you know this, it's actually quite simple to get it done! In this episode I talk about the leucine trigger for muscle protein synthesis, dig into what all this protein looks like in real meals like soups or stirfrys or chili vs. a chicken breast on a salad and when during your day you can capitalize a bit extra on building more muscle.

Welcome to "CGM Podcast : In the Heart of God," and our new series for 2023 : Revelation ExpectationsApostle Charles G. Wright and Dr. Stephanie Wright, Esq., are your hosts for this podcast. We were compelled to share with our podcast listeners what we learned after completing a study of the Book of Revelation with our Bible study group last year. This is a beautiful book about Jesus, His mercy on us, and unsaved people. He prolongs His return because God does not want anyone to be lost. Portions of this book are scary, but not for those who know Jesus and have accepted Him into their lives. If you do not know Him, now would be a good time to ask Him into your heart and receive Him as your Savior and Lord. I learned many things that inspired me to want others to know about the Book of Revelation and the expectations it holds. Some things we will discuss are the difference between Antichrist, the beast and the false prophet ; the whore of Babylon, who is not what you think; that people will sin even when Satan has been locked up for 1000 years; that we will not have one drop of blood on our white garments when we go into battle with Jesus; and there is so much more. So, come along with us on this journey through Revelation Expectations.If you want to contact us or comment on this podcast, please visit our website at cgmissions.com/podcast where all episodes are available by category in series format.

Please Subscribe and Review: Apple Podcasts | RSS Submit your questions for the podcast here News topic du jour: are covid vaccines causing persistent covid? Podcast Questions: 1. Sodium Nitrite [18:20] Dana says: Good morning! I just listened to your episode from 12/23. I have had a long-standing, perplexing question about sodium nitrite/nitrate, and it relates to the recent episode. Since I was 14, I've had a sensitivity to processed meats that contain sodium nitrite/nitrate (ham, lunch meat, salami, hot dogs, etc). It creates a vascular migraine headache with a aura of visual disturbances and sometimes hemiparesis. I can stop the progression with aspirin, so I'm confident it's vascular. The perplexing part, is that it never happens if I eat vegetable high in nitrite/ nitrates, or meats that are cured with celery powder that is high in nitrite/nitrates. Any thoughts on how these are different? 2. High fasted blood glucose/high cholesterol [20:56] Jackie says: Hey there! Long term listener, first time e-mail-er. I've been low carb for the better part of the last 5 years and had some success in maintaining a 40lb weightloss with those eating habits. However, after 2 surrogate pregnancies accompanied with IVF and exogenous hormones over the last 3 years, I'm struggling to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Looking for answers I had some labs done, expecting a thyroid issue, to find high fasted glucose levels (99-101) and elevated bilirubin. I'm fine after eating, my glucose sits at about 74-84 2 hours after eating pretty consistently. I'm just not sure why all of a sudden I'm showing poor insulin management in the mornings on an empty stomach? My BMI is 34- which I know isn't ideal and I'm working on it- but after hormones the weight doesn't seem to want to come off. I'm 30 years old. My doctor said “make some lifestyle changes and we'll keep an eye on it.” So much help there! Wondering if that might be attributable to my dis-regulated blood glucose levels. Would appreciate your insight on the matter! Any thoughts as to what I can try to get my blood sugar back to normal before it spirals out of control? I'm debating on a CGM but not sure if it would be of help? Also, my cholesterol came back high at 212. LDL/HDL ratio of 3. Triglycerides are 66. In the low carb world what does this mean, as in the standard medicine world it's not great- not sure if it's the same. Thank you for your time and all the knowledge you bring to optimizing health! You're truly changing the world. 3. Keto Breastfeeding [26:55] Juliana says: Hi Robb and Nikki, I've been listening to your show for about a year now and I love the breadth of topics you cover. I know sometimes you joke that people my age are not interested in what you have to say, but I want to let you know we are very interested. I share your podcast all the time and people my age love it. With my second baby I was diagnosed with GDM and was on my way toward type 2 diabetes post partum. My blood sugar levels were out of control and I kept adding on weight. I found keto and completely changed my life. I lost 40 pounds before getting pregnant with our 3rd baby. With our 3rd baby I was very strict and ate less than 50 carbs/day and had an extremely healthy pregnancy with no GDM this time. I am now 10 weeks post partum of my 3rd baby. After having the 3rd baby I gave myself a ton of freedom (ie any/all carbs). It was a celebration of all my hard work for 2 years. Now at 10 weeks post partum I tried to go back to my very low carb way of eating and within 48 hours I got soo soo soo sick, it very much felt like keto flu. I would like to note that I had an LMNT each day and salt my food generously with redmonds. I got scared because breastfeeding is the most important thing for me. I went back to having carbs to undo the sickness, but I would prefer a low carb way of eating if I could get there. I take magnesium and dessicated liver and vitamin D and LMNT. I also did not restrict calories, I am very familiar with the keto diet and I made sure I had plenty of fat and calories. I'm curious as to what ketosis does to our overall hydration levels and possibly breast milk supply? I know you recommend LMNT for breastfeeding moms, so I was hoping you might have some insight on low carb diets and breastfeeding. I'm willing to suffer through the keto flu but I'm terrified of it hurting my milk supply. I also read that breastfeeding lowers glucose levels and am curious if that may have had an interaction and intensified the keto flu. I forgot to take my morning fasting numbers. I'm a 33 year old female and my weight is totally irrelevant because I just had a baby Thank you for any insight you might have!

Analiza zdrowia----Dziś opowiemy Wam CGM. Co to właściwie jest za urządzenie?… Jet to czytnik, który aplikuje się na ramie służy do ciągłego monitorowanie glikemii (ang. Continuous Glucose Monitoring) stąd skrót CGM, oznacza on pomiar stężenia glukozy w organizmie w czasie rzeczywistym. Jest to pomiar stężenia glukozy, który odbywa się co kilka minut przez 24 godziny na dobę. Zaletą ciągłego monitorowania jest dostarczanie bardzo ciekawych, często zaskakujących informacji odnośnie, epizodów hipoglikemii i hiperglikemii, trendów glikemii oraz wskazanie jak dany posiłek, ćwiczenia, leki lub inne czynniki związane ze zdrowiem mają wpływ na jej zmienność.

Transcript: WILL: This is the Giant Robots Smashing Into Other Giant Robots Podcast, where we explore the design, development, and business of great products. I'm your host, Will Larry. And with us today is Dr. Anne Latz, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer at Hello Inside, a company that specializes in scientific self-care. Anne, thank you for joining us. DR. LATZ: Thank you for hosting me today, Will. WILL: Yeah, I'm excited to talk about Hello Inside. And let's start there; give us a quick summary about Hello Inside. DR. LATZ: So we are a German-Austrian startup, so we are based all over Europe, actually, all over the world, I have to say. And we help people by means of technology to understand their bodies best so to really become an expert of their bodies. And the technology we use is not only a smartphone app that shows data but a sensor that's called continuous glucose monitoring sensor that's like a little window you put on your arm that shows you in real-time your glucose data. And we at Hello Inside have then an app and the service around that that really helps you to understand your data and become an expert of your body because this data really gives you immediate feedback on what you do in the sense of eating, moving, but also how well you slept, how stressed you are. WILL: Wow, that's really neat. You said you had the continuous glucose monitor. The body is so complex, and there are so many ways that you probably could measure activity of the body. Why the glucose portion? Why are you doing glucose? DR. LATZ: I think that there are two, maybe even three, reasons to that. The first one is we do not have so many tools like biosensors or technology on the market, which enable us to give really continuous data on different biofluids or markers in the body. So the first one is just that the market here is quite mature because we usually know glucose from the context of diabetes patients, and the technology has been developed years and years ago for those people. And that's why we have really, really good technology, really good sensors, which have high accuracy. The prices get lower and lower, so more and more people can really access this technology. And we just know already a lot about glucose management. The second is it's a super, super potent marker. So I'm a medical doctor from my background. And I do not know so many markers in the body; maybe it's the heart rate variability or pulse that give us really immediate feedback to so many lifestyle pillars. So I think eating is quite intuitive that it does something to our blood glucose, but also movement does, also sleep and stress. And all these pillars immediately affect us, and we often know that. But this marker really gives us a take on how we can really visualize in the moment and then create a change from that. And the third is probably that it's just a really hot topic, the glucose monitoring, currently, and that's actually not a good thing. But we have really not only an obesity epidemic but really a metabolic health crisis. So a lot of people have problems with their glucose levels, not aware of it. A lot of people have, in general, problems with managing; yeah, I would say, their metabolism and have an energy crisis in their body. You could put it like that. And that's why we are really interested in glucose because if you manage glucose in the sense that you stabilize it, you can really improve your health in the short term and how much energy you have, midterm in the sense of what your weight is, and of course, long term to prevent diseases like diabetes or heart disease. WILL: Yeah, definitely. I think you're correct; you know, glucose is the one thing, especially for me, it's diabetes, and I know it in that direction. But also that after lunch drag that you hit, the wall that you hit whenever your glucose spikes and then it comes down and spikes, I mean, then crashes. I think that's the other direction people understand glucose from. DR. LATZ: Yeah, for sure. I mean, you bring up a great example, like the food coma after lunch. Everybody knows that, like, this energy and fatigue in the afternoon. But, I mean, you seem to be a little bit familiar with the technology, but a lot of people do not even connect the dots. They cannot really bring together what they eat and their behavior, for example, at lunchtime, how it really impacts them hours later. And what we love so much about the technology and what we can also use the Hello Inside servers a lot for is really to find out what you do, like, what you think is healthy often. A good example is a smoothie you drink that might spike your blood glucose, but you don't really understand it because you thought it was a healthy choice. So it gives me more nuance as to what is healthy for you because it's...and we didn't even stress that, but it's also highly personalized. So you and I would eat the same lunch, and we would react completely differently to it. So there's so much actionable data from it; that's what we love. And yeah, it's a little bit like running a lab test every few minutes of the day [chuckles] and give you the responses really on your smartphone to your hand and also some alternatives of how to create change there. WILL: Yeah, definitely. And I'm glad you brought that up because one of the questions I had for you is, with Hello Inside, how do you see it combating the bad advice around self-care and dieting when you're getting great scientific data? It's kind of hard to argue with the data and the numbers. DR. LATZ: For sure, yeah. I mean, we all know health, wellness, lifestyle. It all gets very close together, which has good sides and bad sides. But of course, people are still so confused in what is really good for them and their bodies. Because healthy, yeah, it's not a very specific term, especially in, let's stay with the example of food, what you put in, and different diet regimes you have. We see that there's so much frustration also in the market because all these one-size-fits-all recommendations in diet regimes or fasting regimes do not work for all people. And that's really why these personalized approaches, and as you say, data-driven approaches, are so crucial because then you really get power back in trusting your body and understanding how your personal health and well-being is really influenced. At the same time, it's super hard because some of these trends and fad diets have existed for a long time and have a huge community who really love them. But we see it really as a conversation, like a conversation we have with the users, but also a conversation that users have with their bodies. Because we know that creating change, especially behavior change, is like the holy grail for all health and also weight management tools. But it's also something that just takes a little longer because you need some experimenting. You need to find out what really works for you. But I'm quite convinced that when you see the data that's based on your body, that's something that you do not forget. If you see the foods that really spike you, surprisingly, this is really powerful. WILL: Yeah, definitely. And I can understand the benefit of it, especially, you know, you're working out two weeks, and your body really is not showing you any signs of change. But I can see how this could help in showing you the change, even if it's small, how you can say, hey, you're on the right track. DR. LATZ: Exactly. Yeah, it's like these small nudges. I mean, it's a monitor that already shows you the shortcuts and the little tweaks you make. For a lot of people, I always say if you find one food, one spiking element in your day and change that for the rest of your life, that's so much. For a lot of people, it's already in the breakfast. They jump on the blood glucose rollercoaster in the morning because they eat maybe porridge without any added protein to it. So it is very carb heavy, and they think it's super healthy and drink the oat milk latte. I mean, in general, there's nothing wrong with those foods, but you can combine them even better and add something to it and not really eliminate stuff but just add a nice mix of protein and fat to your carbs. And you will be so much fitter during the day. You will not have this huge spike putting you on the roller coaster in the morning. As we are very habitual people, I mean, people eat like 60 different foods per week, which is not a lot; once you find out what really works for you, that's super, super nice for the rest of your life. WILL: Yeah, definitely. And to be honest, I have been guilty of, oh, I just ate a very healthy meal. And then I go back and look at the nutritional facts, and I was like, what did I just eat? Because this was not healthy. DR. LATZ: Yeah, we should always learn and make mistakes and learn again. And it's like a jungle out there. I mean, health, in general, the healthcare market is quite complicated. And I think that doesn't only apply to Germany but definitely to where I'm based but also to the U.S. and all the different markets. And for food, it's the same; I mean, that's a little bit the enemy we all are trying to deal with because the food industry is so powerful. It has so much lobby. And you get so confusing information that this is really what we can use our tools now for to understand what really these, I would say, not always healthy but claimed healthy foods do to us. WILL: So, I have a question around wearable technology. So the last couple of years, there's been a trend of wearable technologies, the Garmins, the Apple Watches. This takes it to the next level. This is way more accurate than any of the wearables. Do you see this as the future in the next 5 or 10 years? DR. LATZ: Yeah, probably in the next 5 or 10 years, we will see even more to it in the sense of personalization. And also, I personally believe that we really have a toolbox here of different markers we use. Maybe some are still invasive, like the CGM you put on your arm that really measures the fluids invasively. But also, there will be an array of other things we can really include into our daily health checks. But this is definitely the next level of, as you said, Garmin and all these tracking tools because now we not only track data and have data, but we make them so actionable because we really put them into an immediate setting. So we can really calculate them now. I'm currently wearing my sensor, and I can have a look at my phone after we've finished recording and see, okay, what happened just now in my body? How did I respond to the setting? Was I super stressed? How is my lunch (because here it is early afternoon) affecting our body? We really had already the switch of not only measuring stuff but making it really approachable, actionable. And yeah, I think CGM will be one of the first tools where we can really make this approachable for the broad public; then, we will have a lot of different markers and sensors to look at. And in respect to glucose management, I really am looking forward to when we get the press announcement of some company that we can also non-invasively and continuously measure blood glucose, which is currently not feasible, and a lot of companies are working on it. So this would be very exciting in the next years. WILL: That's exciting. And I love how complex the human body is. DR. LATZ: Oh yeah. WILL: Like you just said, "How stressed was I?" And you can get that from your glucose level. DR. LATZ: Yeah, it's super complex, and it really takes the time to also figure out what...because just measuring data is not really exciting anymore. Then you have a lot of data, and then you're like, so what? So to really figure how interdependent these lifestyle pillars are of movement, sleep, food, et cetera, that really takes some time, but once you understand it, it makes so much sense. For example, stress is like this fight or flight response we've all heard about, and of course, you need energy for it. And that's why your blood glucose might go up because your body gives you energy to, for example, run away, [chuckles] or be alert. And then always breaking down to why our body does things always helps me to also make sense of the data. WILL: That's amazing. Really amazing.

LATZ: I mean, we founded this company with a very clear vision that we really want to help people to become experts of their body and really learn their body's language because this is a quite messed up system. We do not really understand our bodies' signals in the daily life. For example, hunger or thirst, a lot of people cannot really tell what the body is talking to them, so we think it's a super emotional topic. And especially the combination of these really approachable, emotional, real-life moments with newest tech is, I think, an amazing combination because we can reach people really where they are. We can give personalized insights of your personal body. This is also something that makes you so much more reliable and compliant in what you do. Then we can really display the data in a way that you can experientially learn from it. To give you an example, in our Hello Inside app, one of the favorite features of mine is the experiment feature, so you would have a food event. Let's make it super simple, eat an apple and feel your body in the next two or three hours. So that's usually when we take into account the response to that food. And then you compare that to one factor you change, so you eat the apple with some nuts or nut butter. I would suggest to most people, but of course, it's hyper individual, and what extent it changes in the blood glucose response just because you included the nuts, which include fat and protein. You can put these two graphs, these two blood glucose curves together, and you really see the gap between it just from including nuts in your diet. And this is this nice combination of visualization, data-driven insights, and also something where you, I mean, people love to take pictures of their food. And that's what you can usually do here. WILL: Wow, that's amazing. You were talking about your story behind using Hello Inside, the CGM. Do you or any of your clients have any success stories that you would like to talk about? DR. LATZ: Yeah, for sure. I mean, we are quite a young company. We launched only in June and are live now in seven European countries. And actually, I have some really, really cool stories. We launched with a very strong focus on women's health. So we have developed a program which is called Hello Hormones, which helps women along the cycle via the Hello Inside app. And this continuous glucose monitor really improves symptoms like PMS, which can be like bloating, pains, et cetera. And a lot of women didn't really understand (And how would they?) that your body has a very variable response to foods depending on the menstrual cycle. To visualize that, a very simple example would be eat in the first half of your cycle, before your ovulation, a banana, and eat the banana in the second half of the cycle. And I can promise you; you will have a different response to it which is super physiological. It has to do with insulin sensitivity. But you cannot really make sense of that (You feel differently in the phases.) which you now can really do when you saw in the data, really compared it, that you have higher levels of blood glucose maybe in the second half. And you can make small tweaks which help you then to really increase well-being also in the second phase of the cycle before you have your period, which can be by reducing inflammation by changing how you move during that time, et cetera. And this is what a lot of people, a lot of women, resonated with trying out the program. And then, of course, we have these super nice glucose hacks you might have heard about also, where some of my favorites are definitely also always connecting what you eat with movement, so moving your muscles after your meal. And I would say daily, we have such a high blast of user-generated content because people try it out, try the hacks, and then share their blood glucose response with us on social media. And this is so crazy to see. Also, people who are really into their bodies say, "I have these aha moments all the time just because I now understood, okay, it makes sense to have this type of breakfast. It makes sense how I eat my carbs, in which order I eat my food." We have next to the social media content also some coaching sections we offer for our clients where we also hear a lot of those stories that they're really often so, so surprised and so happy that they finally made sense of their body signals. WILL: Yeah, that's amazing. I'm a science geek; I'm just going to say it. DR. LATZ: [laughs] WILL: So I love how you can run your own scientific hypothesis and stuff. Like, you eat a banana at this time, how did it affect me? Okay, at this time, let me eat another banana. I just love that aspect because I don't think we have anything accurate enough right now that I know of besides actual drawing your blood in the lab or something like that that can actually give you that type of information. DR. LATZ: Yeah, and especially if you take a lab just like once a month or once a quarter, then it's also really like a snapshot of the situation and might even have depended on how much did you drink? How was the night before? Like, what did you eat? And put some markers even there. And now you really have the ability to make it, yeah, it's a little bit more playful. Because of course, we recommend experiments you can make, start with an apple, eat the chocolate, do the pasta versus the rice. But then you can customize it because it doesn't make sense to do experiments and try stuff out that you would never do in your daily life. So we always recommend start from where you really are. Wear the sensor for two, three days, just observe, and then look at what you really think is the problem for you. For a lot of people, it's the afternoon fatigue. So what could be the labor here? Where can we make a small change? And then you really, as you say, a little bit of research on your own body and experiment around and tweak here, tweak there and that's the nice part. Then you come to changes that you also stick with. This is what we have also seen on our team, which are like the early adopters, and we worked on it for over a year. We really see that we get better blood glucose response in the mornings. And we just changed a little bit what order we eat. If we go for ice cream, we just do a walk with the ice cream and all these small things which are really feasible and very, very contrary to what we also have in the diet culture, a lot of restrictive things. You cannot do that; you shouldn't do that. I always say it's very positive psychology; add that, combine it here, do some habits tweaking here. And you can really include that in your life further on. WILL: That's amazing. Let's transition and talk about the starting of Hello Inside. What's the story? How did...because I think it's you and three other founders. How did y'all come about starting Hello Inside? DR. LATZ: We are actually from very, very different backgrounds, but we have had some friends in common and some contacts, and, I mean, as I said, I'm a medical doctor. I have a digital health background. So I worked in digital health and other startups for over three years. My other co-founder is very much into the product and growth marketing. He was with Runtastic, which is now part of Adidas. So he has a sports lifestyle background and also expertise for the product. The other one is responsible for brand and community investor relations. He really built also his own companies before. And the fourth is the tech guy who also worked in a medical startup and had his own agencies. So really, as you see, different backgrounds but very nice combination because we bring a lot of skills together and combine them from very different angles, and yeah, this is also, I would say, our power, and of course, it's also at the same time a challenge because not everybody is familiar in the same depth with the topics. But I think that's often the point with diverse teams that you just have to communicate well to help the other people understand where you're coming from. We have to remind him to make research very understandable and really also explain that the tempo there sometimes is a little bit different, whereas I learn so, so much on what it means to build a product really at a high speed, to really iterate here and there. So when we met, of course, the idea was to do something really with impact, to do something in the healthcare space but not too far into med tech. And we're really, really focused on this preventative field. I mean, you always say there's no glory in prevention. Prevention is super unsexy [laughs] for the individual but also the society, and we really want to change that. Of course, Hello Inside was not Hello Inside from the beginning on then we found the name. And we're super happy with the company name, with the case we can make with looking inside, et cetera. Yeah, we're very much looking forward to building an even bigger company in the next years. WILL: That's amazing. Your background is the medical portion of it. And you have experience in patient care in private and public healthcare, so tell us more about that. Are you still practicing? And how did you get into becoming a medical doctor? What was that drive for you to become a medical doctor? DR. LATZ: To be frank, I was a business person first. [chuckles] WILL: Oh. DR. LATZ: I did first business bachelor, but that was like, for me, ages ago; [laughs] it feels like it. And after I finished my bachelor's, I was like yeah, okay, I want to do something else and applied for medical school, which was never on my mind before. And that's how it all started. I also had the chance to do my master's in business at the same time. So I always was like very open to look left and right. And then, I started working in patient care, just very classical, like in a university hospital in psychotherapy. And I loved it a lot. But also, I was missing something to bring in this more innovative, creative part of my interests. I had the chance in a startup to work at some time in the U.S. It's called AMBOSS. It's an ad-tech startup. That's where I came really in the startup field and understood from a very junior position more and more about what it means to build a company. Then I worked, coming back to Germany, for the ministry actually a little bit in the field of public health and prevention for diabetes. So here you see also how it now very well fits with what we're doing now, but of course, I can only say that now looking back. And I got certified in nutritional lifestyle medicine. And this is also something that really fascinates me a lot, like how these pillars really affect our lives all day, every day. And we do not learn so much also medical school about it, and that's where I learned for myself that this is really why I want to double down on these topics. And a little bit before the first pandemic wave started, I found my way into digital health for a startup, being one of the first employees there, and had two years then to really learn on the market, with the market what it means to create a digital health company, and did my postgraduate certificate in Harvard at that time. So I learned patient safety, quality, informatics, and leadership. And all these puzzle pieces then really fit well together last year when I met my co-founders, and we really iterated the idea more to build a company that combines all that, like, digital health and health and prevention with also metabolic health and lifestyle medicine, and, of course, all the innovative things we didn't know that they exist before and we are now learning on the market with. So this is how it all happened to me, and looking back, it all makes sense. But of course, there were a lot of segues. There were a lot of decisions to make on that journey. WILL: Yeah, which I'm glad you brought up the decisions. That was my next question. What have been some of the toughest times in the startup? And what have been some of the most exciting times in the startup? DR. LATZ: Yeah, I mean, I would even broaden up a little bit because just this week, we will launch a book which is in German but will also be in English soon, which really is quite personal. I wrote it with two other doctors, which is called Beyond Bedside. You could translate it. So we are all medical doctors who left bedside and found some new pathways, and two of us also as entrepreneurs. And we had a lot of those hard decisions to take. I think one of the biggest learnings is always...and I think that also applies well for the startups: what got you here won't get you there. So you need this willingness to unlearn. You need to really understand, okay, now I'm a medical doctor, and I learned a lot, but in the startup, I'm just one of many, and I need to learn from the others. And I need to be really, really humble about what I can and cannot do. I think this is always a problem of running a company. You want to be speedy because that's why you're a startup, but you also, especially in the healthcare space, need to do everything properly. And you have to navigate between really having a high quality, having everything according to guidelines because you're always working with people. It's always something you really need to be responsible of. This is also something that we need a lot of patience for a lot of things. But yeah, in general, I would say we did quite a good job as we are a remote-first company. So it was during the pandemic that we founded the company. We have people all over the world working for us. I mean, that's not really specific for our company. But from what I know from colleagues as well, you just need to communicate, and communicate, and overcommunicate in different time zones to really make everybody really aware of the vision, the mission, repeat it again. And strategic decisions need to be clear to everyone. So we put a high effort also on building a nice company culture and working on our ideas together and also get some on-sites where everybody can meet up. And yeah, this is sometimes really hard when you're so in your daily struggle, and there's so much to do. But then we need to take a step back and really say, okay, we need to invest in building an even better team. WILL: Yeah, definitely. Wow. Wow, wow, wow, that's amazing. You've done medical school. You've practiced, and you've founded. Those are hard. Let's just be honest; those are hard things that you have accomplished, so congratulations on that. DR. LATZ: Thanks, Will. WILL: What has been some of the best advice that you received to help you keep going when those things got hard? DR. LATZ: Do not ask the people who are in the very classical fit for...let me give you an example; I would not ask my chief when I worked in a hospital if I should leave the hospital because people who have always done it like that they would never recommend you to drop out and do something new and be innovative, and maybe also a little bit braver. So maybe the good advice from it would be ask the right people, ask a lot of people. And then, looking back, one thing I really learned myself is also it's really hard times you have, and sometimes it's really you're doubting yourself. You're really overwhelmed. There's a lot going on. Especially those times will be, looking back, the ones that can be your hero story. Those are the ones that make you an even better person in the sense of being a coach for others and also for yourself later on. So you really need those struggles to understand and carve out what really moves your heart and where you really want to be invested. And there's also, and this is probably also still hard for me, saying no to a lot of things. WILL: Hmm, that's really good advice, yes. Especially because you have experience in so many different areas, you can quickly overwhelm yourself by saying, "Yes." So, wow, I really like that advice. So in closing, is there anything else that you would like to share with us or with the audience? DR. LATZ: Maybe something that I observe, I mean, I don't know if it's in U.S. the same, but I could imagine it's like a trend that's going on. Everybody thinks he or she needs to be an entrepreneur, founder, like own something, be by yourself. It's just not for everyone. I think that's okay. And I think that it's great that it's not for everyone. We need all the diverse roles. We need all the diverse employees. And being something for the sake of just being it is not a good motivation. I think that nobody should really try to force him or herself into a role just because he or she thinks it's cool. There are many things you can do in your life and that you really should trust your gut and be also really brutally honest to yourself. And, like, I just want to be really...now it sounds better to say, "I just want to be a doctor," that's great. We need doctors; we need teachers; we need employees. There are so many great jobs, and there are so many days where I wish exactly the same. At the same time, entrepreneurship gives you so much freedom of thinking. You learn so much on the job from other people, from your whole team. So there are many roads in crazy town. [laughs] There are many roads in the world. And this is really something we need to be aware of, this exactly, that it is really, really cool that we can do so many things and have really diverse roles in our society. WILL: I love that advice because I 100% agree with you. Because I think there are people that are CEOs and they love to get out in front of people and talk and sell the company. But then you have a CFO or a CEO that's like, I just want to run the day-to-day, the books, or whatever that is, that's what I'm great at. So I love that advice. DR. LATZ: Yeah, exactly. WILL: Wow. Anne, it's been amazing talking to you about Hello Inside and just getting to know your company and you better. Thank you so much for being on the podcast today. DR.

Lauren is a highly sought-after functional nutrition and fitness expert who specializes in using Continuous Glucose Monitoring to help clients optimize their weight, hormones, energy, sleep and exercise performance.

I use CGM technology with my coaching clients, and I'm currently using it to help me lose 10 pounds before my 50th birthday in February–which is why I am so excited to discuss with Lauren how all of this works. _________________________________________________________________________SHOW NOTES: 1:20 - gamifying Continuous Glucose Monitoring; score the least number of points 2:30 - CGM is a brand new space 3:35 - losing weight with CGM 6:45 - best practices in the first 30 days: take a lot of notes 8:55 - measuring blood glucose spikes 10:00 - staying within a certain metabolic range 12:15 - the impact of stress 14:45 - fluctuations in the numbers 16:00 - breath work for stress mitigation 17:55 - optimizing hormones for perimenopause and menopause 21:20 - laboratory testing to supplement CGM use 24:30 - data is everything; heading into 2023 _________________________________________________________________________ You can learn more about Lauren Sambataro and her podcast using the links below: http://laurensambataro.com https://www.instagram.com/lauren_sambataro/ https://thebiohackerbabes.com https://www.instagram.com/biohacker_babes/ _________________________________________________________________________ Get Connected with Elizabeth McGann Coaching Website: http://www.ElizabethMcGann.com Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/elizabethmcgann Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethMcGannWellness LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/elizabethmcgann Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/elizabethmcganntok
Today, I am honored and blessed to have here with me again, Dr Mindy Pelz. She is a holistic health expert, author and speaker who is on a mission to educate men and women about their bodies through her vast experience and expertise in fasting, which can help us take control of our health. She is the author of the most anticipated and upcoming book Fast Like a Girl: A Woman's Guide to Using the Healing Power of Fasting to Burn Fat, Boost Energy, and Balance Hormones, which goes on a deep dive on ketosis and how hormones have the biggest impact to achieving a healthier body. In this episode, Dr Mindy sheds light on the flaws of the current healthcare system. She believes there is no all-in-one solution even to the most basic problem, especially if it's a problem related to our hormones. Tune in as we talk about the diet culture, educating teenage girls about hormonal changes, and the sad reality of the hormone literacy problems we are currently facing.

[3:33] Dr Mindy's Perspective on Why Healthcare is Broken Dr Mindy describes the current healthcare system as identifying the symptoms, creating a diagnosis, and then prescribing a pill She argues that it doesn't work for everyone because human hormones are always around the clock 24/7 If a women patient goes to a doctor, it is crucial to identify the root cause first before issuing a medication instead of providing a generalized solution Dr Mindy believes that a woman's menstrual cycle should be factored into the overall healthcare Women's mood shifts before and during their menstrual cycle are being villainized [12:44] Why Are We Sick? The Main Themes That Dr Mindy Discovered Our food intake and modern toxicity are some of the reasons why we are sick Dr Mindy doubles down that evolutionary mismatch, especially among women, is one of the main culprits of why we are sick Stress-eating work against our hormonal cycle The thrifty-gene hypothesis proposes that humans who were able to survive long periods without food were due to the thrifty gene that allowed them to move into ketosis at a much quicker rate [17:03] We Got The Diet Culture Wrong! Here's Why Dr Mindy strongly believes that the notion that there's one diet to keep you healthy or lose weight is erroneous. Metabolic switching helps the body to get the required energy it needs depending on the situation; the key is the constant in and out People always look for “absolutes” in healthcare, but the body doesn't respond well to those absolutes [30:23] What Happened to Dr Mindy When She Started Fasting? Dr Mindy discovered that cycling in and out of fasting assisted her in alleviating her menopausal symptoms Identifying the quirks of hormones allowed Dr Mindy to identify the diet she needs Progesterone needs more glucose. If you want to maximize estrogen, keep your blood sugar down If you want to have a healthy ovulation, work on the microbiome and the liver, and you don't want to go deep into ketosis Plan your diet in various phases, power phase, manifestation phase, and nurture phase [37:38] We Have a Hormonal Literacy Problem! How Do We Fix It? Dr Mindy spoke to thousands of doctors and found out that only a handful of them understood the underlying facets of hormones in our bodies She believes that we have a hormonal literacy problem, and women are the most affected as an imbalance in their hormonal cycle is being villainized Teenage girls should be taught early on about the emotional, physical, and chemical stress The language of hormones should be brought back because it helps control our mood, energy, and sleep. It helps control how we gain and lose weight. Understanding hormones means understanding the ins and outs of the body [50:58] Do You Have an Eating Disorder? Here Are Some Precautions YOU Should Know Before Fasting! If you have an eating disorder, you need to work with a health coach or your psychologist who has a deep understanding of fasting Fasting is done best when done with the community Working with the community on your fasting journey and connecting with them lifts up your oxytocin The strength of your marriage and the quality of your friendship plays an important role in living a healthier life and happiness You might want a quick fix to problems, the best way to diet or fast, but don't lose sight of the importance of community [58:47] Diet Failed Us! Why Understanding the Glycemic Index Matters Fast Like A Girl Book has an extensive discussion about failed diet strategies, one of them is the glycemic index You can search online for the GCM of something, but the most accurate way would be to have a CGM or blood sugar reader to have a full view of how much glucose your body is taking in Different foods have different glycemic impacts, and understanding that is important if you want to achieve a healthier body AND MUCH MORE!

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions: Rob: Hi Doc, me again. Sorry forgot to ask about my blood sugar. I've been wearing a CGM for almost 2 months now and I was shocked how I was basically pre-diabetic. Fasting glucose was about 120 and it could spike all the way up to 180 after eating my prep meal which could involve something like lentils, sweet potato and peas + olive oil. I have gone to a completely starch free diet where I'm eating plenty of cruciferous veg, pulses. 20g+ protein in every meal and healthy fats. No fruits, grains or starches such as sweet potato. I do have a cheat meal per week and anytime I try to add a starch, my blood glucose spikes again. Am I supposed to be on a starch free diet forever? Why is my fasting glucose still around over 100 when I'm not eating any starches? This is so confusing. Bearing in mind that I already get my 10k steps and I'm generally moving after my meals (washing dishes). Please help, I'm so lost. Anonymous: Hello, I'm 38 years old and my Dexa Scan came back with upsetting results. I have -2.0 T score in my spine which is significantly decreased from 2 years ago. I am wondering if you know anything about CalZbone (Cissus quadrangularis) supplement or IMD supplements (which have an Oseto product containing this). I am worried about putting things into my body if I don't know about any potential side effects, especially long term. At the same time i'm working on my nutririon, i'm working with an endocrinologist for on my hormones and thyroid (which have been a mess for years), i'm also working on increasing the amount of calcium in my diet and making sure I have adequate Vitamin D and K. Any feedback about CalZbone, or about suggestions to make sure I can reverse this bone loss would be wonderful. Also, your amazing and use many of your supplements daily including DNS, Adrenal Soothe and Thyroid Support. Thank you for all you do! Casey: Hello I tried to submit a question and it keeps rejecting my submission so I was hoping I could send it here! Thank you so much for anything you can do to help. Here is my question: Hi there! Do you have any recommendations for chalazion cysts in the eye? My poor mama keeps getting them and they're doing repeat surgeries monthly and putting her on antibiotics each time and just say it's part of life now which has to be bs. I'm going to sign her up to be a client with you but hoping there was something she can do in the meantime! Thank you for all you do! Mary: After reading and listening to all of your info on hair loss, trying to get to the root cause of mine (all over scalp thinning). In your experience, is it possible to experience hair loss after adding T3 medication (low, at 5 mg)? It does say it's a potential side-effect. I was already on NP thyroid 90 mg. with TSH of 2.3, FT3 of 2.7, FT4 of .9, TPO 11, TGA
The holidays are here and you and I both know that T1D can make your relationships with others challenging during this time of year.To help you have a joyful holiday season with T1D along for the ride, we are going to the archives and bringing back one of the most popular episodes. This is the second episode in a 2-part series about boundaries and T1D. I know you've been there. I know you've had that friend or family member - even a doctor - who tries to be helpful but crosses the line with you and your diabetes. Maybe your friend asks you if you should be eating that dessert. Or your mom texts you as soon as she gets a CGM alert on her phone. Your doctor may even yell at you for not doing a good job managing your diabetes. None of these things are ok! On this episode of The Diabetes Psychologist Podcast, I talk about how you can set healthy boundaries with the people in your life, including your health care team. You are in charge of how you live your life with T1D, and healthy boundaries can help you get the support you need from other people. I'll give you some sure-fire ways to tell if someone has crossed your boundaries with T1D and strategies you can use to set and stick to these healthy boundaries. Diabetes Sucks and You Can Handle It can now be purchased on Amazon or on my website, www.thediabetespsychologist.com/book.

This hot topic is in the back of a lot of people's minds these days, no pun intended. Dr. Brian Mowll joins Dr. Jockers to talk about blood sugar regulation, insulin resistance, and brain health. It's a fascinating deep dive into these subjects with positive insights into how we can manage our brain health to best avoid Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. The answers, in part, lie in improving our metabolic health, improving our body composition, improving our insulin sensitivity, and then we can lower our insulin levels back to normal and protect our long-term brain health. If you are concerned about your brain health — perhaps for a loved one — then this deep dive will alleviate your concerns with all the sound medical advice we've come to expect from Dr. Jockers and his expert guests. “If you can list out some of the worst things to suffer with in your old age, Alzheimer's or dementia would probably be at the top of just about everybody's list… one thing we can help people to understand is that there's a lot you can do to prevent it, if you focus and pay attention to keeping the brain healthy." -Dr. Brian Mowll Subscribe to the podcast on: Apple Podcast Stitcher Spotify PodBean TuneIn Radio In This Episode: What is diabetes of the brain?

Episode #57 In this Fasting Q&A episode, Megan and Nadia answer your fasting questions: 1. Can we take prebiotics and probiotics during extended fasting? [03:07] 2. I'm going to Europe for a few weeks - Italy and France - and want to buy a CGM machine which I know you can get at most pharmacies. Is there a specific brand or type of machine that you recommend? [05:39] 3. Are there any other tests that can be beneficial for women? I've been having a lot of problems with my hormones (specifically a low level of testosterone) and I'm tired of going to doctors who seem to do tests and tell me things are, “OK,” without cross referencing hormone levels or taking other tests into consideration. I'm at the point where I want to become my own “doctor” as far as monitoring my glucose and hormone levels. [15:57] 4. Should you fat fast or do extended fasting before holiday events?

Please visit our Sponsors & Partners - they help make the show possible! *Click here to learn more about OMNIPOD* *Click here to learn more about AFREZZA* *Click here to learn more about DEXCOM* Hello and welcome to Diabetes Connections In the News! I'm Stacey Simms and these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. XX In the news is brought to you by T1D Exchange! T1D Exchange is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for the entire T1D population. https://t1dexchange.org/stacey/ XX Our top story is big news.. Dexcom's G7 gets FDA approval. This device with a shorter, half hour warm up time, with the sensor and transmitter all in one piece was approved for people age 2 and up with all types of diabetes. It was approved as an iCGM as expected, which is good news for the automated systems the G6 currently works with.. much more to come of course, we've done a lot of episodes on the features and design of the G7 so I'd urge you to listen to those if you haven't yet and of course we'll follow up with a new episode with Dexcom as soon as they'll talk to me! XX In other news.. Illinois Attorney General files a fraud lawsuit, accusing Eli Lilly, CVS Pharmacy, Novo Nordisk and several other pharmaceutical companies of artificially inflating the cost of insulin by over 1,000% since the late 1990s. The complaint singles out Eli Lilly in particular, noting the price for a dose of its analog insulin Humalog rose by 1,527% between 1997 and 2018. "Remarkably, nothing about these medications has changed," the complaint states. "Today's $350 insulin is the exact same drug defendants originally sold for $20." The suit also notes that 13% of Illinoisans, about 1.3 million people, live with diabetes, making the pharma companies' alleged monopoly scheme a public health threat. There are several other state and class action suits against the insulin makers going through the courts right now. So far none have landed more than a glancing blow. https://www.courthousenews.com/illinois-attorney-general-sues-over-sky-high-insulin-prices/ XX A new contender, though, might be entering the arena. Mark Cuban's Cost Plus Pharmacy put out a tweet this week asking for feedback on adding insulin to their lower-cost inventory. Quote - Insulin users: we are evaluating a future insulin test program and would like your feedback. If we offered a 90-day supply of a fast-acting insulin (up to 12 vials/8 packs of pens) for $170 incl. shipping, what would you think?” There's a feedback form and I'll link that up in the show notes. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=nlWlyavTPES7xglhq5HvDwx1m5bO2mRDq1ekDvUshMtUNUZBM0dDUTA3RVpUOEY1WVNWVDE4U0JTMiQlQCN0PWcu XX People with diabetes who used glucose lowering drugs prior to getting COVID-19 seem to have fewer COVID-19 related adverse outcomes during hospitalization. The mediations have already been shown, albeit in conflicting findings, to have possible benefits regarding morbidity and mortality among patients with diabetes who become infected with COVID-19. These meds include orals like Metformin as well as injectables like sglt2 inhibitors like Jardiance and Invokana GLP-1 agonists like Ozempic and Trulicity. https://www.ajmc.com/view/glucose-lowering-drugs-may-reduce-risk-of-covid-19-related-adverse-events-in-patients-with-diabetes XX New research about opioids and diabetes. This study says people People with diabetes who underwent surgery had a significantly increased rate of prolonged opioid use (POU) compared to people without diabetes who underwent surgery. 56% higher for people with type 2 and more than 200% higher for those with type 1. This was a big, retrospective, observational study of more than 43,000 people who had operations at a single diverse healthcare system in 2008-2019. The researchers say this shows that in a real-world setting healthcare providers are generally not accounting for individual risk factors when prescribing postoperative opioids. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/985068 XX Teens with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) who took bromocriptine, a medication used to treat Parkinson's disease and Type 2 diabetes, had lower blood pressure and less stiff arteries after one month of treatment compared to those who did not take the medicine, according to a small study published in Hypertension, an American Heart Association journal. People with type 1 are at higher risk of high blood pressure and those diagnosed with T1D as children have even higher risks for heart disease. Therefore, researchers are interested in ways to slow down the onset of vascular disease in children with T1D. The study's small size is a limitation. However, the researchers note that further research into bromocriptine's impact on vascular health in a greater number of people with Type 1 diabetes is warranted; they are planning larger trials. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2022-12-parkinson-medication-blood-pressure-teens.html XX CVS is facing a fraud charge with a lawsuit accusing them of deceptive fundraising in a campaign it held for the American Diabetes Association. Prior to each customer's transaction, a checkout screen prompts the customer with several options for pre-selected dollar amounts, as well as an opt-out option, allowing donations to the diabetes association. Yet, the plaintiff alleges, CVS did not forward donations to the diabetes association, but instead applied the donations toward a legally binding $10 million obligation CVS made to the diabetes association. In November, Edward L. Powers, a lawyer for CVS, filed a motion to dismiss the case, challenging the plaintiff and his lawyer on their interpretation of the alleged $10 million “debt.” CVS says they agreed to fundraise from customers and turn over the donations to the diabetes association. After more than three years of fundraising, CVS would make up the difference between the cumulative customer donations and $10 million, according to the motion. The group bringing the suit disagrees and says everyone who made a campaign donations” are entitled to damages. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2022/12/05/metro/tweet-draws-attention-lawsuit-accusing-cvs-fundraising-fraud-checkout-cvs-has-filed-motion-dismiss-suit/ XX Wearing a CGM can keep you out of the hospital.. according to a new study focusing on Veterans Affairs clinics in the US. Wearing a CGM was associated with a lower risk for all-cause hospitalization and mortality in adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This was even though the people with type 2 who received CGM were actually unhealthier [than non-CGM users] according to the researchers, who called the mortality reductions, dramatic. During a presentation at the World Congress on Insulin Resistance, this researcher said: “All of this data suggests that we may need to look at these types of outcomes in a much more serious fashion, because there may be some additional benefits that we didn't appreciate. If true, then maybe CGM use may become more like the SGLT2 inhibitors, and we'll start using them in a much more comprehensive way.” https://www.healio.com/news/endocrinology/20221202/cgm-use-lowers-hospitalizations-may-reduce-mortality-in-type-1-and-type-2-diabetes XX Back to the news in a moment but first.. The T1D Exchange Registry is a research study conducted online over time, designed to foster innovation and improve the lives of people with T1D. The platform is open to both adults and children with T1D living in the U.S. Personal information remains confidential and participation is fully voluntary. Once enrolled, participants will complete annual surveys and have the opportunity to sign up for other studies on specific topics related to T1D. The registry aims to improve knowledge of T1D, accelerate the discovery and development of new treatments and technologies, and generate evidence to support policy or insurance changes that help the T1D community. By sharing opinions, experiences and data, patients can help advance meaningful T1D treatment, care and policy. The registry is now available on the T1D Exchange website and is simple to navigate, mobile and user-friendly. For more information or to register, go to www.t1dregistry.org/stacey XX outed by celebrities, raved about by TikTok users, and advertised by med spas, a new class of drugs for treating diabetes and obesity has exploded in popularity for its weight-loss effects, leading to rippling shortages across several of the medications. Amid the surge in demand, Eli Lilly and pharmacies have started to tighten access to the latest of this type of drug, tirzepatide, focusing on giving it to people with type 2 diabetes, the only population it's authorized for so far. But that's left another set of patients scrambling — people with clinical obesity who turned to the medication as one of their few options for treatment. The class of drugs are GLP-1 receptor agonists, which mimic the effects of a hormone that can help people feel full. Within this group, Novo Nordisk's obesity drug Wegovy and diabetes drug Ozempic have been in short supply for months due to manufacturing issues and increased demand. Lilly's diabetes medication Trulicity has also been in tight supply, according to the drugmaker. That leaves tirzepatide, sold under the name Mounjaro. Lilly said in a statement that the drug is currently not in shortage, but that the company is continuing to monitor availability of competitor therapies and “supply with a focus on access for people with type 2 diabetes.” Related: Patients seeking novel weight loss drugs find a ‘wild west' of online prescribers In October, Lilly made changes to a discount program for the drug, now requiring people to attest they have type 2 diabetes. The coupons allowed patients to get the drug for $25 a month when it would otherwise cost about $1,000. Some pharmacies are also now checking if people have a diabetes diagnosis before filling prescriptions. https://www.statnews.com/2022/12/07/eli-lilly-tightens-access-tirzepatide-mounjaro-diabetes-obesity/ XX XX On the podcast next week.. yale lacrosse player Bri Carrasquillo was diagnosed just after her freshman year. Now she's part of Dexcom U – a new program for college athletes with type 1. Last week's show was One Drop is making a CGM? We'll talk to CEO Jeff Dachis about that. Listen wherever you get your podcasts That's In the News for this week.. if you like it, please share it! Thanks for joining me! See you back here soon.
Welcome to the Keto Kamp Podcast. Today we have with us Narado Zeco Powell who is going to join us on our conversation about metabolism flexibility, fasting, high blood pressure, and digestion. In this podcast, Powell shares with us his incredibly inspiring story, taking us through his early childhood and what marked the onset of his journey towards a health-conscious life. He grew up in Jamaica and was raised by his grandparents. Like any other kid, he loved candies, junk, and everything sweet. Unfortunately, though, he developed eczema, high blood pressure, and asthma in his early twenties. Weight issues were also a continuous struggle that led to the deterioration of his health but one day Powell decided to start fresh, to fight everything that was holding him back and that is when he started his fitness journey, experimenting with working out, lifting weights and eating healthy! 4 Secrets to Mastering Keto Masterclass.

[5:00] Eating healthier and more nutritious food helped him greatly Don't sprout or peel your vegetables; eat them naturally and raw. Breathing becomes a lot easier and effort free. It removed his asthma and eczema problems for years. You also start feeling better. Even without the medications, he is perfectly healthy as his body healed itself. Eliminate things from your diet as this would reduce excess harmful elements from your body. [15:53] Sleep, seed oil, processed foods, and fasting If you sleep properly and at the proper time, you will not just feel better but will also age slower. Replace seed oil with olive oil, butter, or avocado oil. Pro tip: if you go to a restaurant just tell the waiter you and everyone on the table are allergic to seed oil. Processed foods are not what you should be putting in your body. You must remove processed foods from your diet and eat real clean whole food. Fasting is amazing- your sleep hours even count. Healing the gut, bouncing your sugar levels, fat oxidation, and training your body are all achieved by fasting. Fasting if done right can be a very powerful tool. You give your digestive system a break. [23:15] A twenty-four hours once a week, and why does he do it? The dinner-to-dinner fast helped to increase the time of his fast oxidation. Lengthening the fast and doing a full day fast helps make him feel like superman. Tap into the knowledge of our ancestors and include the new research; studies aren't supposed to overwhelm you. You must incorporate how something makes you feel; if you feel energized with something do it. Start your fasts small and then build up. [30:40] How to overcome a standstill in weight; when you can't seem to lose more weight It depends on what you have been doing to lose weight; was it keto, vegetarian diet, intermittent fasting, and so on? It also depends on the period you have been doing what you have been for losing that weight. Your body gets efficient at breaking down fat and you reach a plateau after a certain time; you need to cycle the carbs back in. This way your body becomes better at breaking fats back again. Easier to switch back to carbs and take in the enzymes. This switching back and forth is an easier way to go about it; you need to create diversity in the gut. Our ancestors would have a diverse line of foods that they consumed. [39:50] Bio-individuality and the elimination method People should remove vegetables but only for some time and they should be added back in gradually. You don't know what is affecting you until you eliminate the suspects; you don't know what anti-nutrients are responding to you. A carnivore diet for a while can help improve your gut. After this has happened which can be between one to three months you start adding plant foods to your diet slowly. This way you get to realize what is affecting you through your gut-healing journey. It Helps identify allergies. But first, you must go on a gradual approach to searching for yourself. [44:00] The glucose monitor (CGM) and the Oura ring Your glucose monitor can pick up the signs and aware you. Oura ring is a tool; HRV drops with eating more plant toxins and vice versa means that a carnivore diet suits you the best. Ray's blood sugar pattern picks up when he wakes up. It drops during his fasting period but picks up gradually. This is because his body is optimal. This is because of having more muscles too. If your body is optimized, your blood sugar does not go up drastically. Teach people to be optimal and be the healthier version of themselves. AND MUCH MORE!
