Lee crocker md – meat heals estenosis lumbar

I’m a 67 yo physician, trained as a cardiac anesthesiologist who has been carnivore for estenosis lumbar tratamiento 1 year. My previous medical history, included hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes T2 with multiple problems associated with diabetes including visual estenosis lumbar tratamiento problems, renal problems, cardiac, hypertension, significant peripheral neuropathy with muscle wasting and obesity. I also had some joint disease which limited my exercise. If I were to choose an overarching diagnosis is would estenosis lumbar tratamiento be metabolic syndrome. All of the above are included in that diagnosis.

My cardiac disease had advanced to the point of unstable estenosis lumbar tratamiento angina. I had a stent placed in a minor artery 2009 estenosis lumbar tratamiento and another in 2018 in the circumflex. I also had disease in the LAD but it was estenosis lumbar tratamiento too small to stent. My right coronary was vestigial from birth. This picture is terminal. I was living on nitrites like nitro-glycerine and imdur ever increasing doses, beta blocker ARB diabetes drugs thyroid replacement and omperazole for estenosis lumbar tratamiento gastric asthma. I was morbidly obese. In effect I was dying and likely would be dead estenosis lumbar tratamiento within a year.

My metabolic syndrome or at least pre-metabolic syndrome dated back at least to residency or probably estenosis lumbar tratamiento before. My exercise history was I wrestled in HS was a estenosis lumbar tratamiento distance runner in college and post college, a weight lifter in my 40’s and 50’s till I became injured, but metabolic syndrome was present throughout. Metabolic syndrome is NOT exercise or lack of exercise related. I treated my diabetes with pills and diet and followed estenosis lumbar tratamiento the standard "heart healthy" and starch based diabetic diet, complete with eschewing meat and animal fat.. I ate those cookies and thngs that are advertised as estenosis lumbar tratamiento legit for this diet and the fats were seed oils estenosis lumbar tratamiento dressed up as margarine etc. I was clearly in a state of inflammation. I tried crestor but it gave rhabdomeyolysis.

In august last year I knew I had one last estenosis lumbar tratamiento chance. I had managed to preserve my heart muscle through a estenosis lumbar tratamiento lot of biochemical manipulation, but my time was running out. My symptoms were increasing as were my drug dosages and estenosis lumbar tratamiento eventually I would have an infarct and kill off some estenosis lumbar tratamiento muscle. I had an EF of 55% and normal wall motion on echo the day I went estenosis lumbar tratamiento carnivore.

I basically went into training to survive heart surgery. There is a calculator on the thoracic surgery academy’s website that calculates risk and I entered my risk estenosis lumbar tratamiento variables, got my risk scores and my risk of surgery was estenosis lumbar tratamiento not good. The diets recommended by AHA and ADA clearly were defective estenosis lumbar tratamiento and did nothing to improve my risks. My disease only got worse. After carnivore I went through induction, living on ribeye. I ate only ribeye for a couple months then eventually estenosis lumbar tratamiento added a hamburger once in a while. No cheese no eggs no cheating. In 9 months I lost 65 lbs. I weighed less than what I weighed in medical school estenosis lumbar tratamiento 40 years ago. My diabetes resolved and my a1c was 5.4. Previously is was as high as 9. My hypertension improved. I went off diabetic drugs and thyroid replacement but still estenosis lumbar tratamiento needed the beta blocker and nitrates. My joint pain improved as did my exercise tolerance. Since I have neuropathy I can’t run but I own a treadmill and a weight estenosis lumbar tratamiento vest and between elevation and weight load I could achieve estenosis lumbar tratamiento HIIT easily with heart rates to about 180 (remember I’m 67) and a normal blood pressure response to hard exercise. In other words despite severe disease I had achieved pretty estenosis lumbar tratamiento good cardio vascular fitness as well as improved endurance and estenosis lumbar tratamiento strength.

I found the carnivore diet interesting in its energy efficiency. A glucose based life has associated a parameter called a estenosis lumbar tratamiento respiratory quotient which is a measure of CO2 production vs estenosis lumbar tratamiento elimination and CO2 production is a measure of metabolism. The respiratory quotient can be judged by respiratory rate and estenosis lumbar tratamiento heart rate for a given exercise load, both readily measurable while exercising. Since I could hold metabolism constant by adjusting my work estenosis lumbar tratamiento I could determine subjectively my respiratory quotient as I acclimated estenosis lumbar tratamiento to carnivore. The results were dramatic. My workouts became easier even as I got stronger and estenosis lumbar tratamiento I could feel my muscles working more efficiently. I trained for 9 months, and halved all my risk scores in the calculator.

In the 10th month my cardiac health deteriorated. A diet was not going to resolve 40 years of estenosis lumbar tratamiento damage from disease, at least not in time to save my left ventricle estenosis lumbar tratamiento from infarct so I selectively became a candidate for bypass estenosis lumbar tratamiento surgery and I want to stress elective. It was urgent but my 9 months of preparation mattered. Heart surgery is a risky business no matter what and estenosis lumbar tratamiento I had a little rocky course recovering. The hospital diet nearly killed me. It was all carbs all the time and then they estenosis lumbar tratamiento would measure my blood glucose, give me some insulin and feed me carbs all over estenosis lumbar tratamiento again. A completely stupid protocol. I was in sorry shape post op and went home estenosis lumbar tratamiento on more drugs than when I came. At home re-induced on carnivore and started shedding drugs. My unstable angina is gone. My ejection fraction remains at 55% and my wall motion is normal. I didn’t stoke or have neuroloic sequella from the pump run. I work out an hour/day including weights since my joints are better and am estenosis lumbar tratamiento down to 3 drugs, a beta blocker ARB and some baby aspirin.

My recovery is not all due to diet, but my disease metabolic syndrome was completely due to diet. Completely due to grains and juices and fruits other starchy estenosis lumbar tratamiento veggies, dairy and seed oils. My disease was from "eating healthy" and all the nonsense and politics wrapped up in that. The SAD or AHA or ADA diets completely miss the estenosis lumbar tratamiento actual hormonal causes of the disease and the standard treatments estenosis lumbar tratamiento make it worse, and then the patient is blamed for not getting better, when the treatment is wrong.
