In this episode we talk about how markers of insulin resistance, such as high triglycerides, low HDL, and obesity, are present 30 years before the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease.
Imagine having a 30 year advanced notice for a major disease.
We also talk about how to reverse insulin resistance.
We also talk about a fish oil study showing that it can lower inflammation in older adults. Since chronic inflammation ages you quicker and hurts your brain, it's important to understand how good fish oil is for inflammation.
We discuss another fish oil study showing how it can save your muscles from disuse atrophy. We talk about sarcopenia and the importance of maintaining muscle mass.
We also talk about a few other natural ways to lower inflammation.
We end the podcast by talking about a study showing that you can override bad genes with lifestyle factors.
