Clinical Focus: The Plot Against Keto, Part 1
March 14, 2019
“Keto Crotch” became a viral meme in the media and was widely disseminated on social platforms. It’s a repudiation—in very personal terms—of the popular trend toward low-carb and Keto diets. But something’s fishy about Keto Crotch—there are strong indications that it’s part of an organized campaign to impugn the low-carb movement, which is gaining major popular inroads, and is threatening the bottom-lines of powerful commercial interests like Weight Watchers, pasta and bread makers, cereal companies, the beverage industry and other purveyors of carbs. Is there any truth to the claim that low-carb diets imperil feminine hygiene? What’s the evidence for a conspiracy to generate a media buzz via paid “influencers”? And that’s not all: Dubious studies have spawned headlines that suggest low-carb diets cause atrial fibrillation, stoke cravings, and contribute to digestive problems—what’s the truth? Are we being deliberately manipulated? Click HERE for part 2.

Clinical Focus: Low-carb diets increase your risk of dying—Really? Part 1
August 23, 2018
A new Lancet study purports to demonstrate that popular low-carb diets are unhealthy and dangerous. But the study is rife with errors that call its conclusions into doubt. Plus, it’s contradicted by other previous, even-larger studies. We’ll take a deep-dive on the Lancet study’s methodological flaws, and learn why it’s a disservice to those tens of millions of sufferers of metabolic disorders worldwide, curable through carefully administered low-carb diets. Why, then, is an uncritical press so willing to swallow these conclusions hook-line-and-sinker? Click HERE for part 2.

Clinical Focus: Hemoglobin A1c, what is it, and why does it matter? Part 1
July 5, 2018
HemoglobinA1c (HbA1c) has been touted as one of the most important blood tests you can get. It reveals how well you’re controlling your blood sugar. Some experts recommend that you strive to get your HbA1c as low as possible—5.0 or less. But health authorities recently issued new guidelines arguing for leniency in HbA1c targets. Which is it? How do we reconcile these opposing viewpoints? What does HbA1c actually measure? Why does it offer a “window” into all the cells in your body? Why do doctors sometimes ignore borderline HbA1cs? Why could that be detrimental to patients? What are some of the sources of inaccuracy in HbA1c? What other tests shed light on HbA1c results? Which nutraceutical has been shown to improve HbA1c?
