Re: Targets for Ketosis using BioSense

Thanks so much, Julie! I have a doctor's appointment in 2 weeks and I'm hoping to see an improvement from last year's results! My homocysteine was still high last year at 8.1, but down from 12.1 the previous year. My hbA1c was still too high at 5.5, but it was down from 5.7. My doctor expressed a re...

Re: Targets for Ketosis using BioSense

I know Dr. Bredesen used to say to stay in nutritional ketosis with a level from .5 - 1.5. I see that he is now saying to be above 1.0. I've been on a Keto diet for over a year now, and I usually test my blood after a 14 - 16 hour fast, right before my first meal of the day. I am usually in a lower ...

Re: Inconsistent Keto-Mojo Results-Discouraged!

Thanks so much everyone for your responses and support! Both my husband and I have continued to re-check our ketone levels, and the results are consistently WAY different (i.e. .3 and then 1.6, less than a minute later.) I contacted KM and ended up purchasing a tiny bottle of "Control Solution&...

Inconsistent Keto-Mojo Results-Discouraged!

Hi Everyone. I have been monitoring my ketone and glucose levels for over a year and have based many dietary decisions based on these results. I have sometimes been surprised by some of my results, but have assumed that I can handle a higher carb level and still stay in ketosis. Last week after a su...

Elevated RA Factor

I know that managing inflammation is crucial! You are all so smart, and I'm wondering if any of you know what causes a continual elevated RA factor. (I have not been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I don't have joint pain.) My previous employer offered a wellness screening every year, and on...

Re: Discouraged! Lab results don't reflect all the lifestyle changes I've made

Thanks Julie, Tom, and antimatter37 for your thoughtful and informative responses! You have all given me things to explore as I continue on this journey to better health. I haven't entered my dietary info into Cron-o-meter lately, but I will definitely start doing this again. I agree with you, Tom. ...

Discouraged! Lab results don't reflect all the lifestyle changes I've made

Thanks so much for the support you offer on this site! I'm really discouraged that my lab results don't reflect all of the ways that I've changed my life to improve my health. I am ApoE3/4 with an MTHFR variant. For the past 7 months, I've almost totally eliminated sugar and carbs. (Yes, that means ...

Clear Path Wellness Center

I'm wondering if any of you have taken any of the classes at The Clear Path Wellness Center (Laurie Goldman) in Arlington Heights, IL. They have a Bredesen Protocol Program. I was told that Laurie Goldman is a psychiatrist and recently learned that she is APOE 3/4, so is committed to keeping up with...

Re: THINKING OF MAKING AN APPT TO SEE DEAN SHERZAI AT LOMA LINDA

I'm so sorry for the stress that you're experiencing, but I totally understand your feelings. I, too, have been having similar feelings and confusion about what to eat. I've heard that Dr. Sherzai doesn't agree with Dr. Gundry's recommendations about lectins, and has urged people to investigate the ...
