I’ve practiced the Wheat Belly/Undoctored diet/lifestyle since September, 2015 with many great results.

An EBCT heart scan in July, 2018 showed a total calcium score of 2.44 (not 244). However, an echocardiogram in July, 2019 showed aortic valve stenosis and implied aortic valve area of 1.8 cm. In August, 2019 I began aggressively treating my SIBO/SIFO after a newly purchased Aire device showed a level of 10 almost every time I used it (although I had virtually no symptoms). In December, 2019 I paused the SIBO/SIFO treatment and began supplementing with Renew Life Ultimate Flora 100b CFU and additional 10b L. Rhamnosus GG. I’m still not convinced I’ve eradicated my SIBO. My Aire device still shows a level above 5 after I consume Inulin. In any case, here are my blood test results of 01/13/20 and related questions:

 

  1. Thyroid – I’ve been taking daily 30mg Armour Thyroid since July, 2017. My results seem to have improved since the last test. Do I need more T3?
1/13/2020 12/8/2018 Range Units
TSH 0.666 2.09 0.45 - 4.5 uIU/ml
T3 107 71 - 180 ng/dl
T3, Free 2.6 2.0 - 4.4 mg/dl
T4 7.6 4.5  - 12.0 ug/dl
T4 Free 1.31 .82 - 1.77 ng/dl
Reverse T3, Serum 12.6 18.9 9.2  - 24.1  ng/dl
Thyroid Peroxidase 13 0 - 34 IU/ml
T3 Uptake 25 24 - 39 %

 

2. NMR Lipids – Slightly worse. Not sure what to do here. My physician Jeff Gerber says not to worry given my recent EBCT score.

1/13/2020 12/8/2018 Range Units
LDL-P 2875 2493 0 - 2000 nmol/L
LDL-C 196 196 0 - 189 mg/dL
HDL-C 66 58 >39 mg/dL
Triglycerides 90 91 0 - 149 mg/dL
Cholesterol 280 272
HDL-P 30.5 28.6 >=30.5 umol/L
Small LDL-P 1417 1013 <=527 umol/L
LDL Size 20.6 20.8 >20.5 nm

 

3. Vitamin D – I increased my D3 intake from 6000 to 10000 IU beginning August, 2019 after aortic valve stenosis finding. Is my level too high or not high enough?

1/13/2020 12/8/2018 Range Units
Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy 85.3 59.4 30 - 100 ng/mL

 

Thanks for any feedback on these items. Sorry for so much data, so many issues.

Michael
