My calcium score result


(May the blessing of bacon be always with you) #21

There was some talk about this on the forums a few years ago. I don’t remember names, just that people stressed that vitamins D and K were essential to persuading the calcium to go back into the bones. I have the impression that it’s not a speedy process, either.

And of course, a ketogenic diet is essential, as well, because it was the carbohydrate intake and the interference by elevated insulin that caused the arterial damage in the first place. (Or if Ravnskov and Diamond are right, it sped up the rate of damage beyond normal to the point that calcification became necessary as part of the repair process.)

That’s a great score, wish mine was like that.

Added a “good” K2 (I believe) ask try as I might, until I get to where i think I’m getting it in my foods, i’ll supplement :wink: thanks Paul!

YUP! They have drugs that do it too, but are very hesitant to use them because of the fear of free floating plaque.

Only got c-peptide taken once, mine was 2.5. Depending on where I look, mine might be slightly high (“normal” might have a limit of 2.0). Yours seems fine, though.

Which K2 do you like? My spawn is a near-vegetarian, and needless to say, I’m not too happy about that. I have neglected stocking up on a good K2 supplement to offer her.

I was looking at this one on the great satan:

She’ll eat some fish, occasionally, so I need to take advantage of living right by the Fisherman’s Terminal in Ballard (Seattle’s formerly Scandinavian-fisherman-heavy neighborhood) and force feed her more smoked salmon caught by the F/V Loki.

This is the one my wife and I have been taking along with D3 and sunshine…

Whether it’s the reason our CAC profiles are so encouraging or not is hard to discern. But having spoken more than once with Pat Theut (owner/founder of Koncentrated K) I’m convinced he has done his research too and I trust his background and motivations. YMMV.
