It would be interesting to have the ability to compare the bloodwork of high profile diet gurus.
One of the places I buy supplements always puts a free health newsletter in my bag or box. I have never seen this particular author write anything either pro or con about the BTD. I usually scan through his newsletter, occasionally making a note of something that might prove helpful.
In a recent issue he wrote about a medical exam and published the results of his bloodwork. He said that his numbers were a great except for a few. His blood sugar is high, as is his cortisol and homocysteine. His overall cholesterol is high, though his ratio is good.
I asked myself, do I want to follow a nutritional pro who has high blood sugar and high cholesterol? Probably not. If a nutritionist’s program doesn’t work for himself, I would not be inclined to place my health in his hands
Then I started wondering how Dr. D’s blood work would compare to some of his critics like Andrew Weil, Michael Klaper, and John McMahon.
I’m just a volunteer blogger. I don’t have the clout to propose such a challenge. But it sure would be interesting.
As far as his blood sugar and cortisol levels are concerned, he may have a diet that does not meet his needs or he simply may not get enough shut eye. Either or both of these can cause high blood sugar or high cortisol.
Perhaps this individual is eating close to his or her blood type or perhaps not. But even if they are eating for thier blood type or genotype our genes have the final say in how they are going to be expressed. And sometimes our diets may or may not always be able to silence the genetic noise.
