Kidney Stones: The Wicked Step-Child of Gout

While at a medical conference in Tampa, Florida, I started thinking about uric acid.  This lead to remembering the story of a patient who was passing a kidney stone . . .  watch to find out what she said.

Kidney stones are really just gout’s wicked step-child and both are usually found in the insulin resistant patient.  Learn why as we spend a short 10 minutes talking about how both types of kidney stones are formed and why.   Uric acid stones & calcium oxalate stones are siblings with different mechanisms of formation but, oh, how they love hanging out in your kidney.

How Does Ketosis Affect the Diseases of Civilization?

Listen and watch as we talk about how ketosis, or the absence thereof plays a role in the formation of the Diseases of Civilization (It’s not rocket science, or maybe it is?)

We touch on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, carbohydrate restriction, the use of protein and even exercise (Did you say “eggs are sides . . .” or exercise?).   So pull up a piece of string cheese and spend 20 minutes that may just change your life.

“About 40 percent of my older patient population who take statins while eating ketogenic experience some form of myalgia they didn’t have before. And there’s an amplified side effect profile: muscle ache, joint pain, generalized fatigue, liver enzyme elevation, and cloudy headed.” — Dr. Adam Nally
