I have watched several of your videos and have been a great help in understanding recent changes in my blood work. My question right now is on my kidney function:
Before I started LCHF my eGFR was at 44. My last blood work after several months of LCHF showed an eGFR of 65. Is this kind of trend supported by data or might it be just a nice coincidence for me?

Hi, I haven’t heard too much about it honestly – but only because no one has brought it up. It might be worth asking in some keto focused groups specifically, such as the Ketogenic Forums, and see if anyone has experienced the same. Just glancing through a couple things it looks like it has been speculated it could help with kidney function, but I don’t know if it’s been confirmed to.

Hi, my wife has been following you for awhile and I finally jumped in. I had two cholesterol tests within 7days of each other. Feb 5 2020 and Feb 12 2020. The Feb 5 test: total 284, LDL 214, HDL 59, triglycerides (TG) 57. The five days prior to the Feb 12 test I ate a HFLC diet, not really keeping track just avoiding carb food as much as possible. The Feb 12 test results: total 248, LDL 167, HDL 71, TG 48. I must say i was surprised with the results.

Hi – I see the Feb 12th test was under HFLC conditions, but what was the context of the feb 5th test?

Hi Siobhan,
I have been on low carb inter-spaced with carnivore for a year now. My latest blood work threw up a surprise – my white blood count (Leucocytes LPK)i is low – 3.0; the reference range is 3.5 to 8.8. Not sure what the units are here in Europe.

I have not been ill once since stating low carb and feel very strong and healthy – more than ever in my life. With your knowledge in low carb and immunology, what would you say about this?

Thanks
