Startling Research Findings: A Newly Discovered Cause Of High Blood Pressure And Obesity?

If you have been reading my recent articles about fructose you will probably recognize Dr. Richard Johnson. Dr. Johnson is one of the physicians on the cutting edge of sugar metabolism research today, his focus being on how the overabundance of sugar in the American diet -- particularly fructose -- is causing obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and a number of other health problems in staggering numbers. In this lecture, Dr. Johnson takes a more historical approach to obesity and cardiovascular disease, reviewing the important uric acid connection and some interesting evolutionary findings related to the way humans metabolize sugar. Cardiology is a Relatively NEW Field Obesity rates have paralleled sugar consumption trends in Western civilization. Although the obesity epidemic is relatively recent, obesity is not a new phenomenon. In 1860, the prevalence of a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or higher (which defines obesity) was 1.6 percent among 50 year-old men. By 1900, it had tripled, and it has sharply increased over the past century. Like obesity, hypertension was also rare prior to the twentieth century: In 1900, only 5 percent of the population had a blood pressure of 140/90 or high Continue reading >>

    high uric acid and connections to diabetes and other conditions

    I'm wondering if any of you have high uric acid levels. I did discuss this with my urologist and he says its often genetic. in researching I found there is apparently a connection to diabetes and high blood pressure.Also a connection to arthritic conditions as a result of calcium deposits in the joints. Gout also may be a result of high uric acid.
    Over the next three months leading up to my next visit to the lab , I will be avoiding foods high in purine which raises uric acid levels such as beer, asparagus, spinach and red meats. I have found a recommendation to drink a glass of water with 1-2 tsp of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar and 1 -2 tsps of unpasturized honey once a day. This is supposed to lower uric acid levels. At the very worst this will not hurt and may have other benefits. It also tastes a lot better than just the vinegar. I use a little warm water to melt the honey and then mixI have already found that apple cider vinegar does lower my blood sugar .
    My non diabetic friend swears it has improved his vision over the last 2 yrs but says it must be the unfiltered, unpasteurized kind as any thing else has had the nutrients , beneficial bacteria and enzymes cooked out of it. I do find that the regular type does not have the same effect on my blood sugar although it does have some.
    Any one have any experience with this or any other thoughts on this subject.

What is SERUM ALBUMIN? What does SERUM ALBUMIN mean? SERUM ALBUMIN meaning, definition & explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Serum albumin, often referred to simply as blood albumin, is an albumin (a type of globular protein) found in vertebrate blood. Human serum albumin is encoded by the ALB gene. Other mammalian forms, such as bovine serum albumin, are chemically similar. Serum albumin is produced by the liver, occurs dissolved in blood plasma and is the most abundant blood protein in mammals. Albumin is essential for maintaining the oncotic pressure needed for proper distribution of body fluids between blood vessels and body tissues; without albumin, the high pressure in the blood vessels would force more fluids out into the tissues. It also acts as a plasma carrier by non-specifically binding several hydrophobic steroid hormones and as a transport protein for hemin and fatty acids. Too much or too little circulating serum albumin may be harmful. Albumin in the urine usually denotes the presence of kidney disease. Occasionally albumin appears in the urine of normal persons following long standing (postural

Clinical Nephrology - Epidemiology - Clinical Trials Correlation Of Uric Acid And Urinary Albumin Excretion Rate In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus In Taiwan

Uric acid is detrimental to the kidneys in animal models. However, its role in human diabetic nephropathy has not been extensively studied. This study evaluated the association between serum uric acid and urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Taiwan. A total of 343 patients (144 men and 199 women), aged 62.8 ± 10.8 years and not using uric acid-lowering agents, diuretics, or alcohol, were recruited. Serum uric acid and urinary ACR were determined. Normoalbuminuria, microalbuminuria, and macroalbuminuria were defined as ACR <30.0, 30.0 to 299.9, and ≥300.0 μg/mg, respectively. The respective uric acid levels for normoalbuminuria (N = 166), microalbuminuria (N = 130), and macroalbuminuria (N = 47) were 5.2 ± 1.6 mg/dL, 5.6 ± 1.9 mg/dL, and 6.7 ± 2.1 mg/dL (P < 0.001). The mean ± SD (minimum-maximum) values of uric acid for the first to the fourth quartile were 3.4 ± 0.6 (1.7-4.2), 4.9 ± 0.4 (4.3-5.4), 6.0 ± 0.3 (5.5-6.5), and 8.1 ± 1.2 (6.6-12.2), respectively. Prevalence of abnormal albuminuria (microalbuminuria plus macroalbuminuria) for the respective quartiles were 38.4%, 51.2%, 50.6%, and 66.3% (P trend <0.01). In m Continue reading >>

Natural Ways to Reduce HIGH URIC ACID - Add These Fruits to Your DIET To LOWER Your HIGH URIC ACID LEVEL. Uric acid is a naturally occurring waste product resulting from the breakdown of purines, crystalline compounds found in certain foods. Under normal conditions, uric acid dissolves in the blood, passes through the kidneys and is eliminated in the urine. If the diet is high in foods containing purine, or the kidneys are unable to eliminate excessive uric acid, high uric acid levels, known as hyperuricemia or gout, occur. Adjust Diet To gain control of uric acid levels, avoid eating foods high in purine, the chemical responsible for forming uric acid in the system. Red meat, seafood, organ meats and some beans are all high in purines. Refined carbohydrates and vegetables such as asparagus, peas, mushrooms and cauliflower, should also be avoided. Avoid Fructose Limit your soda consumption. In an article on the Arthritis Today website, researchers found men who drank more than six servings of high fructose soft drinks each week, increased the occurrence of gout. Although diet soda is not implicated, fruit juices and other sugary drinks are. Limit Alcohol Because alcohol dehydrates

Hyperuricemia (high Uric Acid)

What Is Hyperuricemia? Hyperuricemia is an excess of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid passes through the liver, and enters your bloodstream. Most of it is excreted (removed from your body) in your urine, or passes through your intestines to regulate "normal" levels. Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines. Purines are nitrogen-containing compounds, which are made inside the cells of your body (endogenous), or come from outside of your body, from foods containing purine (exogenous). Purine breaks down into uric acid. Increased levels of uric acid from excess purines may accumulate in your tissues, and form crystals. This may cause high uric acid levels in the blood. Uric acid formation may occur when the blood uric acid level rises above 7 mg/dL. Problems, such as kidney stones, and gout (collection of uric acid crystals in the joints, especially in your toes and fingers), may occur. What Causes Hyperuricemia? Causes of high uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) can be primary (increased uric acid levels due to purine), and secondary (high uric Continue reading >>

    I had high uric acid of 11. From my research it isn't always the diet of staying away from protein foods that does the job. Red meats, chicken, some fish can make it high but doctors say curbing the diet will make it go down about 1.0 so it may be the liver is producing too much uric or either the kidney isn't flushing enough out. Try some natural uric acid controllers to do the job
