by Bianca Garilli, ND Obesity, a preventable condition, has tripled worldwide since 1975, with 340 million children and adolescents between 5-19 years of age with overweight or obesity in 2016 according to the World Health Organization (WHO).1 In children and adolescents, BMI-for-age growth charts are used to determine weight status; >85th and <95th percentile is considered overweight, while ≥95th percentile is obese.2 In the US, overweight and obesity disproportionally affect children of low-income households, whereas the risk of overweight and…

Host: Deanna Minich, PhD, CNS, FACN, IFMCP Guest: Christopher Keroack, MD, IFMCP You may have heard about the ketogenic diet. This high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate-protein dietary pattern has experienced a revival of sorts in the mainstream media and dieting world. But, before “keto” was a contemporary fad, how was it used? In fact, there is ~100 years of science supporting the ketogenic diet. To shed light on its history of use and elucidate practical areas of clinical application, Drs. Deanna Minich and Christopher…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Body mass index (BMI) is used in the medical community for defining anthropometric height/weight characteristics.1 An individual’s BMI categorizes them as normal, overweight or obese and is often used as a risk factor for various chronic health issues including coronary artery disease (CAD).1 It has become apparent however that BMI is a gross estimate of adiposity; BMI is a poor indicator of percent of body fat and does not indicate site of body fat distribution, an…

by Kirti Salunkhe, MD Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the primary cause of death in men and women and type 2 diabetes (T2D) is considered the most common non-communicable disease globally.1-2  Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have shown in the US, over 600,000 people die annually from heart disease (1 in every 4 deaths) and T2D is the seventh leading cause for mortality.1-2 Healthcare costs associated with these conditions are also staggering: annual US expenditure for heart disease…

by Kirti Salunkhe, MD Research has shown the links between type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) to be tightly intertwined and it is very common for patients to have both conditions concurrently. As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) list both conditions among the top 10 leading causes for death in the United States, these twin healthcare concerns need to be addressed with urgency so as to reduce morbidity, mortality and improve patient outcomes.1-2  Patients with T2D often…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Sleep plays an important role in foundational health with inadequate amounts contributing to risks associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D), metabolic syndrome, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.1 One study reviewing the relationship between insufficient sleep and chronic health issues concluded, “Sleep duration of less than 6 hours is a risky behavior for the development of chronic diseases, particularly stroke and cancer, and should be therefore addressed in public health campaigns.”2 Studies have shown that the risk…

by Bianca Garilli, ND In the constant quest for improving performance, ultra-endurance athletes often alter exercise and dietary habits hoping to optimize peak physical and mental health. With this goal in mind, the ultra-endurance athlete community has turned its attention to the potential benefits of a low-carbohydrate diet. This is in stark contrast to the previously long-held approach of consuming a high-carbohydrate diet before, during and after exercise.1 Crucial to peak performance is the availability of adequate glycogen throughout the…

by Kirti Salunkhe, MD The graying of America is the fastest growing segment of the US population today. According to the latest statistics from the US Census briefs, the population aged 45 – 64 years grew at a rate of 31.5% between 2000-2010, compared to 2.6% in those under the age of 18 and the even slower rate of 0.6% in adults aged 18-44 years.1 This rise has been attributed to the increase in the numbers of ‘baby boomers’, a…

Some of the more common ones are:2 Arrythmia (irregular heart rate) – usually manifested as atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation (AF) Coronary artery disease (CAD) – narrowing of the arteries that directly feed the heart Angina –…

by Kirti Salunkhe, MD Sleep is critical for all aspects of physical health. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), American adults need at least 7 hours of sleep per night. However, statistics indicate that more than one third of US men and women get less than the recommended 7 hours; with those aged 45-54 years having the least amount of nightly shut eye.1 Conversely those who report sleeping more than 9-10 hours per night also raise red flags…
