Heads Up Health
I met David Korsunsky last year and was instantly a fan of his product, Heads Up Health (HUH). His staff has been tenaciously aggregating all these different medical systems and lab result formats into a single repository that’s really easy to work with. Obviously, as a data fiend, I was immediately interested.
This weekend HUH released a guide that makes it easy to work through my protocol using their system and I’m definitely happy to highlight it. In fact, it’s one of the only ways I know that you could be both tracking your food (say, with MyFitnessPal), while also getting your blood labs (through, say, Quest Diagnostics) and have them all come together in the same place. This would also make it easier if you wished to share your data back to us here (which I hope you do, as always) as it will be in a standardized format, thus making Craig’s life easier.
Full disclosure: Like the keto shake companies, HUH offers support for my research in the form of products and service, but in no way do I have any financial interest or relationship of any kind. I’m funded by individuals like you via Patreon or direct donation only.
I find it laughable that I was so reluctant to start the Patreon page before now. Mainly, I didn’t want any of my research to be pay-to-see, so I kept putting it off. But I got a lot of good advice from others on simply having patrons have access to the behind-the-scenes and a lot of my casual process. A lot of it is rough and incomplete. At times just stream of thoughts like the Vlog.
Yet this is what makes it work so well. Patrons are kind of like the crew that’s on the set of the movies before they come out.
Moreover, I’m finding some other content to slip in — like my Davehead pizza making. 🙂
I’ve mentioned several times that I’ve had “mysteriously high Ferritin” in the 550s. Indeed, I’ve ran the gambit checking iron levels, oxidative stress, etc. to no avail — everything appears normal. But in my most recent labs, my Ferritin dropped to a 303 ng/ml (ref range 30-400).
Why? I have no idea.
But if my coming labs have me back in the 550s again, you can be sure I’ll be doing a forensic deep dive on everything I ate and did in the days leading up to that original 303 test.
