Nutritional biochemistry

Are continuous glucose monitors a waste of time for people without diabetes?

Some experts suggest CGMs are useless for nondiabetics. I disagree.

Nutritional biochemistry

#165 – AMA #24: Deep dive into blood glucose: why it matters, important metrics to track, and superior insights from a CGM

“Hyperinsulinemia on an [oral glucose tolerance test], even in the presence of normoglycemia, is the canary in the coal mine.” —Peter Attia

Diseases

#162 – Sarah Hallberg, D.O., M.S.: Challenging the status quo of treating metabolic disease, and a personal journey through a grim cancer diagnosis

For a disease that everyone thought was chronic and progressive, to see people recover from it is quite astounding.” —Sarah Hallberg

Treatments

#155 – Chris Sonnenday, M.D.: The history, challenges, and gift of organ transplantation

“Knowing that their loved one’s organs live on in another individual and saved their life is the only good thing about what was otherwise the worst day of their lives … I think it’s important for people to hear that it can be a transformative gift.” — Chris Sonnenday

Nutritional biochemistry

#149 – AMA #20: Simplifying the complexities of insulin resistance: how it’s measured, how it manifests in the muscle and liver, and what we can do about it

“If you’re in the business of wanting to live the healthiest life you can live, which means longer and better, you’ve got to be insulin sensitive, full stop.” — Peter Attia

Nutritional biochemistry

#141 – AMA #18: Deep dive: sugar and sugar substitutes

“Is glucose a sugar? Yes. Is fructose a sugar? Yes. Are they the same? Not even close.” —Peter Attia

Nutritional biochemistry

#140 – Gerald Shulman, M.D., Ph.D.: A masterclass on insulin resistance—molecular mechanisms and clinical implications

“If we can understand insulin resistance, then that’s going to be the best way to fix diabetes, heart disease,. . .fatty liver disease, and slow down cancers.” — Gerald Shulman

Ketosis

#120 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part II of II: Ketosis for cancer and chronic disease, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the effect of ketosis on female health

“The function of the mitochondria and mitochondrial health are the ultimate mitigator of neurodegenerative diseases…just by reducing the potential for reactive oxygen species related damage.” — Dom D’Agostino

Ketosis

#116 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part I of II: Ketogenic diet, exogenous ketones, and exercise

“If you restore insulin sensitivity, you’re better able to access and burn fat.” — Dom D’Agostino

Fasting

#114 – Eileen White, Ph.D.: Autophagy, fasting, and promising new cancer therapies

“I would like to translate what we’ve learned about the role of autophagy in cancer and that involves developing small molecules to inhibit autophagy for cancer therapy.” — Eileen White
