[Preview] How to measure your insulin response

October 8, 2019


And it was actually a snippet
on a social media message board that I haven’t been able to refine since… … that pointed me
into the direction of this paper. 1975, Dr. Joseph Kraft,
“Detection of Diabetes Mellitus in Situ” and it has these patterns. It’s got about 500
oral glucose tolerance tests, multiple sample, up to five hours. And it started talking
about these patterns. I’m going, “Yeah, this is what I want. What else has this researcher done?” And I found this book. Ordered it off Amazon
and it arrived promptly, very good. I started reading it and I’m going,
“I have more questions about this. “He’s done a sterling job
analyzing the insulin response patterns. But what about the glucose?
We can’t look at this in isolation.” There’s more to the story,
it’s not just about the insulin. And the book I had
was a second edition 2011. This is 2013 when I’m reading this and I’m going,
“The photo suggests he’s pretty spry. “Maybe I should write to him. “Maybe he still has some of his data. “Maybe he might let me use it. “But I don’t know about that,
he seems to be this illustrious person. And I’m just a down to earth kiwi pharmacist
on the other end of the world.” And I’m voicing this to Grant. And he said, “Write to him,
what’s the worst that could happen?”

    Do you have any information on mental illness issues? Psychiatric drugs users? I'm urgently trying to re-educate my naive step daughter about her 280 lb junk food eating, sugar devouring brother on multiple psychiatric drugs, he's like a 300 lb baby with a mentality of a child. It's like talking to a zombie…

    "Write to him, what's the worst that can happen?"
    The worst would be that the video ends and we don't get to hear the end of the story.

    Where can I go to get this Kraft Insulin titration done? I am not sure my Family Med physician is up to it

    Love it when the title of a video has absolutely nothing to do with what is delivered in the content, and the content itself delivers absolutely no value.
