Lifestyle-induced metabolic inflexibility and accelerated ageing syndrome: insulin resistance, friend or foe?

Serendipity strikes again!
The tipping point and the metabolic syndrome.
The picture that I used for the last post came from Lifestyle-induced metabolic inflexibility and accelerated ageing syndrome: insulin resistance, friend or foe?

Fascinating stuff!

Hmmm, Nigel, I see the authors have connections with HammersMyth & Porton Down - excellent parentage.

While my Inflammation Index is low (HsCRP=0.8), Glycation Index is low(HbA1C=5.3%) and Fasting Insulin is 3.6 mIU/L I suspect my Metabolic Flex is in good nick too.

But the graphics are GOOD!

(Oh, and BTW, did you type 5.8 rather than 6.8 when providing your 2003 OGTT results at CarbSanes recently ??)

Stone the flamin' crows! Have I cocked something up again? Thanks for the catch. I'll take a look and edit accordingly.

Having checked the paperwork, the starting BG value on the EOGTT was 5.8mmol/L. The 6.8mmol/L value was a fasting test on a different date.

I now need to correct my blog posts! Aargh!

When Oxfordshire Cotswolds native Dr. Barry Groves and his wife Monica decided to start on a low-carb, high-fat diet beginning in 1962, all of his friends and family thought he was crazy. But when this nutritional scientist Ph.D. lost weight and greatly improved his health by eating supposedly-forbidden foods like butter, full fat meats and cheeses and lard while eschewing blood sugar-spiking carbage foods like bread, pasta and rice, Dr. Groves was the one who had the last laugh. It allowed him to live a long and healthy robust life with over a half century of enjoyable low-carb, high-fat living as one of the UK’s strongest advocates for this healthy lifestyle change. Dr. Groves passed away last night, April 29, 2013 at the age of 77.

77 - WOW

That's very unfortunate. Dr. Groves made contentious statements about low carbohydrate diets, but he was also very communicative in explaining his ideas and made sincere attempts to engage the curiosities of others.

As yet, nobody knows the cause of Barry Groves' death. See "Barry Groves" death (results from the last 7 days)

Hiya! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a
template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Many
thanks!

Take a look at my blog post: sizegenetics
