Some 97 per cent of those killed by COVID-19 in Louisiana had a pre-existing condition, according to the state health department. Diabetes was seen in 40 per cent of the deaths, obesity in 25 per cent, chronic kidney disease in 23 per cent and cardiac problems in 21 per cent.


Don't these all have their roots in inflammation?

Ever since reading The Wahls Protocol, where she explains all autoimmune disease is the same, it simply manifests in different ways in different people, I've seen how chronic inflammation is the real root cause.

That changed my way of viewing things also. People tend to treat individual diseases as individual independent entities when in fact, at least as far as autoimmune diseases, they seem to be manifestations of the same underlying cause, inflammation. That's why dietary changes, such as Wahl's suggests, can take care of a host of supposedly different conditions. At least that's the way I see things now.

Good points and the experiences many of us have rectifying many, seemingly random and disconnected health conditions confirms for me that inflammation from metabolic syndrome is really the thing we need to treat.

Inflammation from metabolic syndrome......

Level of inflammation damage seems to be on a spectrum. More damage over time.



Watched a youtube video yesterday about skin tags. Dr Ken Berry. He says he makes a packet removing tags from clients. He says, As a sign of IR, changing the diet to keto would make current skin tags go away and prevent future ones.

Looks like the people at greatest risk have a diagnosed disease. There is a small group that die or get very sick without a diagnosis of heart disease, etc.......which begs the question, is the disease subclinical or perhaps otherwise undiagnosed.

Mr WereBear's skin tags are going away with thyroid supplementation and keto diet.

Hmm, I still have plenty of skin tags and continue to get new ones. I always hope they will go away but despite my eating habits the Skin-Tag Fairy Godmother has not yet showed up at my house.

Fatty liver disease increases the risk of COVID-19 severity

https://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/202...9-severity.html

Quote:
People with fatty liver disease are more than twice as likely to become seriously ill with COVID-19, researchers have said.

The study, carried out by teams from UK BioBank and a diagnostic imaging company called Perspectum, involved looking at more than 42,000 liver scans.

One of the most interesting findings showed that obesity itself does not increase the risk of severe coronavirus complications, which some prevous findings had suggested.

What does raise the risk is if someone’s liver fat is more than 10 per cent. Those with less than five per cent life fat had no extra risk at all.
Quote:
Dr Aseem Malhotra, leading cardiologist, who specialises in diet related health said: “It is increasingly clear that excess body fat in many people even those who have a normal BMI is a significant risk factor for COVID-19 complications.

“Fatty liver is one of the earliest manifestations of poor diet and lifestyle and this is being predominantly driven by diets high in refined carbohydrates and sugar. The message is very clear cut. Cut down the refined carbs.”

Fatty Liver Disease and Ketogenic Diets

Lack of Saturated Fat Consumption: At least two studies, one from Duke University , and one from Cambridge University have shown that reducing carbohydrate consumption and increasing saturated fat intake helps the liver shed excess fat in as little as three days.
