My oncologist’s analysis of my PET bone scan taken 28 Nov 2017:
- looks like I’m in a full remission!
- “remarkable” given that it was “high volume” metastatic prostate cancer!
- all blood tests normal (a little anemic, as is usual for me since radiation therapy).
- PSA 0.1
I told him my theory that my very low insulin levels caused by my diet and (@meganjramos’s) intermittent fasting helped greatly; insulin being a growth hormone. He said Metformin, a drug used by diabetics to lower insulin, seems to help treat cancer. That’s some confirmation of my theory.
In any event, he said keep doing what I’m doing; including all the exercise, which he thinks is very positive for cancer (plus, he’s an amateur tri-athlete).
BTW, I’ve been following @amber’s lead in eating a ketogenic paleolithic carnivore diet for the last 6-9 months. Love rare ribeye grass fed and finished beef, smoked wild sockeye salmon (lox), and prosciutto! I do use coconut milk and oil in my coffee and olive oil on my canned wild sardines.
