New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!

– The Results Of My Latest Carnivore Diet Bloodwork

Below is my comprehensive bloodwork after 12 weeks of modified carnivore diet (a nose-to-tail approach that also included small amounts of berries/raw honey/tubers/red wine/coffee): (note elevated liver enzymes/creatinine due to very hard weight training day prior). In this case, the bloodwork I ran was the WellnessFX Greenfield Longevity Panel For Men. (Click here for Longevity Panel For Women)

– What Happened To My Blood Sugar During My 2 Week Detox In The Swiss Alps

It is so surprising to me to see how significantly my blood sugar has responded to a plant-based diet combined with a liver cleanse/detox/fasting protocol. I suspect enhanced hepatic function is somehow vastly increasing my insulin sensitivity and plummeting blood glucose (despite my carb intake going up ~30%). I actually had to remove my Dexcom G6 because the alarm kept going off due to my blood sugar being consistently in 40s-50s at the end of the day.

It's a very interesting phenomenon I've never experienced, and suspect it's due to the multimodal approach (e.g. tons of different protocols on liver such as hyperthermia, liver massage, Indiba and biophoton liver treatments, daily coffee enemas, etc.). Fascinating.

  1. Peter says:

    Are you on trt? Why your lh level’s so low. Even if so i could see a nice drop in shbg from your last bloodwork (it was around 80).

  2. amy says:

    The drop in blood sugar per CGM needs to be studied in the context of your “liver cleanse”! That is fascinating. In non-diabetic patients on CGM, I often see glucose in the 90s-100 despite a super strict low carb diet and the assumption has always been hepatic glucose output…. Also of note on your lab however are the higher liver enzyme values. Is that also unusual?

  3. Tom Griesel says:

    Will you be doing a blog or podcast on blood work changes, positive or negative, from your previous test(s)? And, drawing some personal conclusions? Thanks, Tom

    1. Yes, stay tuned. I'm constantly retesting and posting about the results.

  4. none says:

    That blood work isn’t great. Kidney, cholesterol and sex hormones are pretty awful.
