    Hello doctor, thank you for your efforts to create a healthy lifestyle among the public. From Australia 🇦🇺.

      Hello from Adelaide 😊

      Thank you @rejeenageorge for watching 😄

      Are HOMA-IR tests hard to get in Australia? I don’t think it’s covered under Medicare?

    • pokeypickle3 on July 7, 2023 at 12:54 pm

      Hello from Sydney

  2. Dr Tony Hampton on July 7, 2023 at 10:25 am

    I continue to be shocked that my clinical colleagues don’t measure fasting insulin levels.

    It’s not only the best predictor of future diabetes but 6.7x greater at predicting heart disease compared to cholesterol & LDL.

    • AllHim Withme on July 7, 2023 at 10:50 am

      I continue to be shocked that I’d rather go to YouTube than someone in the traditional medical system. I developed a severe asthmatic response to histamine having to choose between eating (anything at all) and breathing. I discovered my problem when I started fasting to fix my immune system and put together that I only had symptoms after I ate anything. Great.  Now what, I thought.

      There was a day I’d have run to the doctor immediately. Instead I came here to Dr. Ekberg (along with Drs. DiNezza, Rajsree, Hyman, and Pelz) and learned how to heal my immune system by fasting and with my food choices. I avoided high histamine food and followed an “extreme” fasting regimen (80% OMAD, 20% 2MAD, one 3-day fast per month) for 5 months. And I’m healed, now, 6 months after self-diagnosing and fixing my problem. I still live a fasting lifestyle and eat an ominvorous, clean diet and I intend to do so for the rest of my life. I’m filled with shalom and my body and mind are in tip-top shape. I’m 51, 5’2″ female, and not only healed a severe histamine problem but lost 26 lbs to be settled in at about 103 lbs.

      What do you think my outcome would have been had I run to a doctor? Steroids? Albuterol? A pat on the head being told I’m imagining things? I didn’t want to find out. Now, _that_ is shocking.

    • Joyce W. on July 7, 2023 at 11:03 am

      I continue to be shocked that no doctor I ask will even order a fasting insulin when I offer to pay cash. They all insist it is not necessary.

    • AllHim Withme on July 7, 2023 at 11:12 am

      @Joyce W. How far the medical community has strayed from pursuing _health_ is mind boggling, indeed.

    • Anomar Namloh on July 7, 2023 at 11:12 am

      ​@Joyce W.I think they don’t know how to interpret the findings and to prideful, to embarrassed to acknowledge it. Also I believe, I could be wrong, the ADA (American Diabetes Association) frowns upon testing it. My insurance will pay for an annual C-peptide test.

    • Sue A on July 7, 2023 at 11:16 am

      ⁠@Joyce W.my doctor said the same thing when I asked to test my insulin level 🙁

  3. Corvus Corax on July 7, 2023 at 10:25 am

    I’m very happy for finding your channel. You and Dr Robert Lustig changed my life, so I reversed prediabetes 2 years ago and I’m still in the remission.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on July 7, 2023 at 11:55 am

      Congratulations @krakraichbinda. I wouldn’t call it remission though. That word implies that there is something random about it. Your body adapted to an unnatural lifestyle and then it adapted to a natural lifestyle. 😄

    • Corvus Corax on July 7, 2023 at 12:06 pm

      @Dr. Sten Ekberg well, the doctors call it officially remission, but I agree with your definition of it – you said about an adaptation to the life style. Greetings from Dortmund in Germany.

  4. Bala Balakrishna on July 7, 2023 at 10:52 am

    And thank you again for all you do doc! Great lessons we learn always from you! God bless you!❤

  5. Lure Of The North on July 7, 2023 at 11:05 am

    Just another fantastic video by you ! It’s been 13 months since I 1st watched down 32 lbs – thought I knew a lot NO ! Not till I found Dr Sten !

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on July 7, 2023 at 12:17 pm

      Thank you @lureofthenorth1397. I really appreciate your feedback and so glad that you liked it. The purpose of my channel is to explain the principles and mechanisms of health in such a way that you start gaining an understanding and respect for the miracle that is the human body. I spend so much time on it because when we get “the why” and start owning the mechanisms we become empowered for life . Comments like yours makes it all worthwhile. 😄

  6. Marianne 1 on July 7, 2023 at 11:24 am

    Another great video Dr Eckberg!! I binge watch your videos which have kept me on track these past 2 yrs! 2yrs ago A1c was 9.5 with a myriad of health problems. Age 64 now and in excellent health with huge wt loss, and tons of energy. ❤😊. Never going baxk to SAD woe. ! I am going to use independent lab to get my insulin level although i dont know what my original baseline was 2 yrs ago.

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on July 7, 2023 at 12:21 pm

      Congratulations @marianne1959, good for you 😄

  7. Catto Satto on July 7, 2023 at 11:27 am

    IR is a lot more prevalent than people think. We had blood tests at our work place (obligatory by law) and nearly all people had high blood sugar levels despite fasting 15 hours before the test. It’s truly horrible

    • Dave Murray on July 7, 2023 at 3:26 pm

      The belly developed by men around 45 to 50 is a sure sign of insulin resistance.

  8. Hakai-Shin [SlavoPL] on July 7, 2023 at 11:35 am

    Simple yet amazing 🙂 Hello doctor. My weight went down from 165kg to 93!!!

    • The Triunp on July 7, 2023 at 12:09 pm

      Awesome!!!how long took you to do that???

    • Dr. Sten Ekberg on July 7, 2023 at 12:24 pm

      Thank you @slavo185 for sharing your great results and helping inspire others. That is so awesome. I am thrilled that you have seen such great results. Keep it up! 😄

  9. john cole on July 7, 2023 at 12:09 pm

    Thanks for such a great public service you provide. Your advice as a physician that understands exercise health is priceless

  10. The Inessential Mix on July 7, 2023 at 12:09 pm

    Thank you so much for what you do, Dr. Ekberg. IR was destroying my life, and with keto and IF I’ve dropped 200 pounds. My fasting glucose is now in the 70s, and I’m on hour 92 of a 120 hour fast for autophagy – 1.1 GKI at this morning’s blood tests. Took a while to get to where I am now, but it’s been worth it!

    • daydreamer on July 7, 2023 at 1:29 pm

      How long does it take for you to get to this point?

    • The Inessential Mix on July 7, 2023 at 2:10 pm

      @daydreamerMy peak weight was about four years ago, and I began a stringent adherence to keto and cleaner eating in spring of 2020 because of the hysteria of the time. I have been stable at about 140 +/- 8-10 pounds since early 2022.

      This is not easy. Starting fasting was brutal, getting used to OMAD was slow and I constantly self-sabotaged it. I also “knew” I was in ketosis with certain levels of total and net carbs, “knew” certain foods weren’t triggers, and “knew” I could reset from a holiday/stress processed food slip in under 24 hours – and all of this was false. I needed to begin weighing food, counting absolutely everything, and measuring my blood to know what was actually up with my metabolic processes.

      And it has to be clean – real, whole food. Commercial “keto” products are almost universally trash, about the most processed thing I eat today is the Egglife wraps. You MUST totally eliminate seed oils and track your omega-6 and omega-3 intake. On days I eat, my OMAD regimen generally includes 1-2 cans of mackerel or sardines, 3-4 high quality pasture eggs, and raw cheese made with grass-fed/grass-finished cow’s milk. My omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is almost always under 1, but crucially my overall intake of omega-6 is 5% or less of my energy intake.

    • Jeff Walker on July 7, 2023 at 7:14 pm

      Super inspirational!! I’ve lost 50lbs in 4 months and my fasting glucose is in the low 80s with a GKI of 1.5. Currently 19hrs in on a 24hr fast. This information is life changing.

    • Jeff Walker on July 7, 2023 at 7:17 pm

      How do you test you omega 6 and 3 ratios? Do you get your omega 6 and 3 through diet or supplements? Thank you for sharing your story.

  11. angelfriend on July 7, 2023 at 1:16 pm

    Thanks for explaining it Dr. Ekberg. I get my blood work done this fall. It’s nice to know what to look for. Hope you have a happy Friday!

  12. giorx5 on July 7, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    Great video! Thanks a lot Dr! Analogies is the key for the health. As for diabetes the same is ofr cholesterol. Instead of adding the bad and good of it, they should have a ratio between those two kinds of cholesterol and thus the ratio would define who needs cure or not.

  13. Gerard on July 7, 2023 at 1:36 pm

    Love your videos and explanations provided in them. I have heard you explain it further before, just not this one. The cells are resisting the affect of insulin because they replete with energy and will not let anymore in until what’s inside is metabolized to make room for additional energy. I believe many people just don’t understand they are over supplying energy and usually not providing enough micronutrients.

  14. Diane Eccles on July 7, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    I’ve been an RN for almost 40 years. The way that you explain things and you’re calm and organized approach is absolutely marvelous. Thank you for your efforts in trying to educate the public. You’ve really helped me.

    • wanda sconci on July 7, 2023 at 3:17 pm

      Me too.❤

    • Perry Babin on July 7, 2023 at 4:37 pm

      Has it been hard to adjust for what’s supposed to be good for you? The older food pyramid suggested much more carbs and eggs were an immediate death sentence (almost). Now things have come around 180°. Do you still see doctors who just about faint if they hear that their patient is eating more than 2 eggs a day?

  15. void main; on July 7, 2023 at 2:07 pm

    Absolutely fantastic explanation! You made a complex subject become very easy to understand. thank you!

  16. John Galt on July 7, 2023 at 2:15 pm

    Thank you for these videos, Dr. Ekberg. I’ve had people try to convey pieces of this information to me in the last 15-20 years, but it wasn’t until I was able to develop a framework of knowledge from your videos that this type of information was useful.

  17. TifaHeart on July 7, 2023 at 3:14 pm

    Thank you for another great video! I am on keto and IF journey! And I am glad that I discovered you at the age of 32. Thank you for everything you do. I love how you explain things.

    • macoediv on July 7, 2023 at 3:20 pm


  18. Jane Sorensen on July 7, 2023 at 3:22 pm

    Another outstanding video when I learned EVEN MORE! 🎉

    I’m thrilled to report that since beginning my keto/IF lifestyle 2 months ago that my lab test from 5 days ago was *stellar*, when 2 months ago some levels were pretty bad. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, in this case the blood. Thank you Dr Ekberg for your excellent teaching! I’m lovin’ my eulyte, and happy to be a subscriber for regular deliveries.

  19. Gary Hiland on July 7, 2023 at 5:51 pm

    Dr. Sten, another excellent IR video. You’ve covered this so well before but keep adding tidbits that makes your channel “continuing education”. The graph of carbs from grain, fruit and non-starchy veggies was great. I haven’t seen that before. Please keep adding to and massaging topics you’ve covered before. Many newcomers will be seeing these for the first time and the rest of us keep getting a fuller and a reinforced understanding of these crucial topics. Thanks!

  20. Jeff Walker on July 7, 2023 at 7:07 pm

    Dr Sten- Thank you sir!!! The way you explain this rather complicated concept is amazing. This filled in a lot of blanks for me. Medical knowledge is no longer exclusive to physicians and healthcare professionals thanks to people like Dr Sten who are changing the lives of so many. Myself included.
