Limitation: Paucity of studies evaluating isolated cardiac outcomes or reporting participant race/ethnicity. Conclusion: Untreated WCH, but not treated WCE, is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. Out-of-office BP monitoring is critical in the diagnosis and management of hypertension.
We spoke about the results, which will be published and constitute an unprecedented 97.2 percent type 2 diabetes remission rate. Meaning that based on current data, anyone suffering from type 2 diabetes has a near 100 percent probability of entering full clinical remission within 20 weeks if they follow the NFI diet.
Diabetes runs in my family. My father had diabetes and my youngest brother also has the disease. I do a lot of reading and research to better understand what I personally need to do to never develop diabetes. The NFI diet sounds amazing. This is just another powerful piece of evidence that supports adopting a mostly plant based diet.
If you’re as excited about this news as I am please share these articles and links. Your diabetic family and friends will thank you.
And if you’re wondering my last fasting blood sugar was <100mg/dl and my A1C last measured in 2015 was 5.8%.
The skeptical cardiologist has been evaluating a demo version of AliveCor’s new KardiaMobile 6L. I have been a huge advocate of Kardia’s single lead ECG and use it with great success in dozens of my afib patients. I’ve written about how this personal ECG monitoring empowers patients and providers and is a crucial component of…
Thanks Doctor for the ECG history lesson and for sharing your insights.
And congratulations on the Stanley Cup!

During a median 10 years’ follow-up, 37% of participants died. There were 46 excess deaths per 1000 PPI users in that time. PPIs were associated with excess mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Patients without indications for PPI use had higher mortality risk from CVD, CKD, and also upper gastrointestinal cancer. Longer duration of use was associated with greater risk.
