presents episode 445 |
Metabolic Classroom with Matt Mohi, Carlie Wendel, featuring Lindsay Venn

Question: Can atherosclerosis and plaque build-up be
reversed by eating low carb?
-hard to determine if the existing plaque can be reduced
-depends on your diet, how significant the build-up, and
what else are you doing
One strategy is to take Vitamin K2
-400 to 600 micrograms per day
-helps pull calcification from plaque

-diet can lower inflammation
-deadly combo: inflammation and plaque build-up in arteries
~that causes the ruptures
~causes the clots
~causes heart attack
“Reducing inflammation reduces
the chance of a heart attack”

Question: How to take medications while fasting?
-can be problematic with some common medications for
those adopting an insulin-smart diet
-Example: taking metformin on an empty stomach does not
work well for many patients
(check with your doctor before any medication changes)
-I have some patients wait on
metformin until the first meal of
the day after their fast

-if that is not an option, there are 2 strategies (Dr Jason Fung):
1-soak chia seeds in water, after hydrated, take meds with that
2-take a handful of leafy greens with meds
