I am a big fan of @baxirahul sir and his Tweetorials.

Short, crisp and chockful of useful data --> highly recommended for physicians and patients --> for diabetes is all pervasive.

What is my personal regime?

1. Weekly BP and weight measurements.

2. Brisk walking to cover at least 7k steps/day. I also have my own exercise regimen.
3) I follow a diet prescribed by my dietitian.

I am gradually phasing out all junk food and simple carbs.

The Bengali diet is delicious.

But the carb load in the bhaat and NOT THE MISHTI is killing us.

Why do a few young, physically active, seemingly healthy people suffer from heart attack?
1. A person with normal body weight, doing regular running, cycling, or working out in gym, is not immune to heart attack, as a few recent reports suggest. Here are some of the reasons why:
2. Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HCM)
HCM accounts for 40% cases of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in young athletes. Unfortunately over 80 % of affected individuals are asymptomatic before SCD, which often occurs during exercise or in its aftermath.

3. Cardiac arrhythmia
About 15-20% cases of SCD occur due to cardiac #arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). In patients younger than 35, the most common cause of SCD is a fatal arrhythmia, usually in the context of a structurally normal #Heart.

Been tumbling down the rabbit hole of fucoidan — a sulphated polysaccharide fiber derived from brown seaweeds. Loads of studies but mostly using cell lines and animals. However, results are astonishing. Seems to be the cure for everything short of death.
Fucoidan upregulates PGC-1 alpha and sirtuins. This means it boosts mitochondrial health, boosts antioxidant production like glutathione, glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, and catalase. And PGC-1 alpha stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis. So you make more mitochondria
This can help to protect against toxicity from multiple sources.…
