Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner and graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our guest today in Episode 1002 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing--his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn't a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy's original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.
Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy's diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.
