Nice to meet you. I’ve been dabbling with low carb, not so much keto, for a few years although I never really stuck with it for any real length of time. Since June, I’ve been much more diligent, lost a bunch of weight and have been exercising much more. I’ve done a few 31 hours fast and want to bump that up as I go. I think my biggest problem might be developers-ass-in-seat disease . I do have a bunch of various blood test over the past few years and an appointment this week to review my second advanced lipid panel. I am happy to share those numbers after wednesday and maybe we can have a discussion. I’ve had borderline hypertension for many years and am starting to believe the chronic endothelial damage hypothesis might be my problem.
I’m told I could have a genetic apo e issue going on, I’m in the process of pulling a 23 and me report for that. Not a good family history and my only sister just received a calcium score of 576. So there might be something to it.
I’m working on keto as a means of reducing my a1c (currently 5.9) and have completely stopped eating all processed food and anything with sugar. I’m currently researching any information on reversing CAD.
Lastly I’m looking into Boston Heart Diagnostics as they profess to predict if I will ultimatly benefit from keto.
