My Actifit Report Card: June 14 2022
Most of today’s activity was from mowing the lawn.
I had a follow-up call from my doctor to discuss my lab results.Based on my poor behavior, we saw the results. He says it will take three to four months to see results from a diet and exercise change. We will check again.
Today I stumbled upon a video talking about the effort of uric acid the help develop metabolic syndrome. We mostly associate uric acid with gout. But, it also has other effects on blood pressure and fat storage. The main idea of the video is that we now have something else to monitor and control. Key takeaways were that we should keep uric acid levels around 4.5 for optimal function. Alcohol and certain foods cause your body to make uric acid. People with gout will be familiar with diet modifications. Also, we need to hydrate to lower our sodium levels. High sodium triggers a dehydration signal, which causes high blood pressure and fat storage. Uric acid also contributes to elevated blood pressure by interfering with the production of nitric oxide, which helps blood vessels relax, improving profusion. It’s a viagra effect. Also, 500 mg of vitamin C daily helps with excretion of uric acid.
The book they were discussing is Drop Acid by David Perlmutter MD. I have just purchased the kindle version to read.
