In this presentation made at The New York Academy of Sciences, Frank Hu, MD, PhD, Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School, provides an edifying overview of the relationship between nutrition and metabolic diseases. Dr. Hu delves deep into systems epidemiology, which integrates a wide range of information from genetic predisposition, epigenetics, genetic expression and other factors into population-based epidemiological studies. According to Dr. Hu, systems epidemiology exists at the intersection of human…

Frank Hu, MD, PhD at Nutrition Pro 2015: Translating Genetic Information in Nutrition Practice Dr. Frank Hu of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health discusses the role of genetic information, prediction of chronic disease, and nutrition interventions for improved health. This presentation comes from Nutrition Pro 2015 and contains valuable information for clinical translation of genetic information for improved nutrition practice. Genes play only a small role in our overall health outcomes. Other genetic determinants, such as…

Dominic D'Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida In this MAPS talk, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino examines the role of the ketogenic diet in metabolic health optimization. We know that metabolic health correlates with overall health in the body, so by optimizing metabolic health, defined by a set of biomarkers that reliably predict the physiological and metabolic state, we can potentially help delay the onset of many age-related chronic diseases. Dr. D’Agostino explains how…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida Dominic D’Agostino, PhD is an expert on ketogenic science, having conducted research on the cellular, molecular, and physiological impacts of ketosis on the body. In part 2 of a 3-part discussion, Dr. D’Agostino examines the following facets of the ketogenic diet: Common myths surrounding the ketogenic diet Ketone testing How long should a patient be on the ketogenic diet? Nutritional ketosis and supplementation What conditions…

by Bianca Garilli, ND and Ashley Jordan Ferira, PhD, RDN Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is no longer a Western world phenomena, but rather a global epidemic, with research revealing an association between higher T2D rates and a country’s wealth or economic growth.1 As a clear example, in a recent paper titled “Prevalence of type 2 diabetes in the Arab world: impact of GDP and energy consumption”, it was observed that the higher a country’s gross domestic product (GDP), the higher…

Dominic D'Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida Dominic D’Agostino, PhD has conducted research on the ketogenic diet to ascertain the cellular, molecular, and physiological impacts that ketosis and its metabolic transition have on the body. In part 1 of a 3-part discussion series, Dr. D’Agostino provides research and clinical evidence to answer the following questions: What is the ketogenic diet? What are the optimal measurement indicators for optimal ketosis? What is the…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Globally, 39% of adults aged ≥18 years were classified as overweight and 13% obese in 2016, totaling a jaw-dropping 1.9 billion adults overall.1 With obesity rates soaring, tripling worldwide since 1975, most of the Earth’s population now lives in countries where overweight and obesity cause more morbidity and mortality than being underweight.1 Keeping pace with these gains in adiposity is the behemoth weight loss and weight management market, which consists of fitness centers, slimming centers, consulting…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Telomeres are the DNA-protein caps found at both ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. They serve to protect the chromosome from degradation, unnecessary recombination, deleterious repairs at the chromosome ends, and interchromosomal fusion.1-3 In summary, they function to preserve the stability of the genome.1-3 The length of the cell’s telomeres shorten with every cell division and, upon reaching a critical length, trigger the cell to either undergo the process of apoptosis (programmed cell death) or senescence (cells stop…

Susan Blum, MD, MPH; Functional Internist, Founder/Director, Blum Center for Health There are many types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease. Common themes exist within autoimmune disease, including the presence of inflammation and presentation as a systemic condition. Dr. Blum discusses the health origins of arthritis and reviews research on the gut-joint health connection that plays a lead role in arthritis pathology. Dr. Blum explores the different types of arthritis and how to treat them with…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common form of heart disease in the US, resulting in over 370,000 deaths annually.1 Because of its frequent and often fatal nature, it is important to understand the risk factors associated with heart disease and ways to mitigate that risk. A partial list of common CHD risk factors include: elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels, diabetes and prediabetes, smoking, overweight or obesity, sedentary lifestyle, family history of early heart…
