Born and bread
Dear Reader,

Many women have come to see me because they've had difficulty conceiving. And I'm happy to report that, with dietary changes and nutritional supplementation, many of these same women were eventually able to become pregnant.

But to be honest, I never really knew why this approach worked.

I guess I just assumed that if I steered my patients toward the right nutrients, and generally reduced the amount of inflammation in their bodies, within a few months, their bodies would be friendlier places to form an embryo.

Is this an accurate explanation? Truth is, I still don't know. But there's an interesting new study out that may shed some light on the issue. So I'd like to tell you about it.

This new research found that cutting carbohydrates and increasing protein intake can boost a woman's odds of conceiving and giving birth following in vitro fertilization (IVF).

The effect appears to be directly on the eggs in women's ovaries. Apparently, high-carb diets set up a hostile environment for them, even before conception takes place.

I have to say, while I have been preaching for years about the dangers of carbohydrates, I never saw this one coming.

But I also can't say I'm too surprised. According to the study's lead author, neither eggs nor embryos can thrive in a high-sugar environment. But slashing carbs and boosting protein furnishes your fertilized egg with the nutrition it needs to stay healthy.

So maybe my hunches weren't so far off after all.

This study featured over 100 subjects between 36 and 37 years of age. And it was inspired by the surprisingly high number of unhealthy embryos doctors were finding in otherwise young, healthy IVF patients.

We're talking about women who aren't overweight or diabetic. So what's behind this phenomenon? A peek inside these subjects' food journals revealed one possible answer.

Among this group of women, carbohydrates comprised as much as 60 to 70 percent of the daily diet. (A shocking number, but once again, not surprising. In my experience, women definitely tend to eat more carbs than men,)

Researchers separated subjects into two groups. One devoted more than 25 percent of their diet to protein. The other devoted less than a quarter of their diet to protein.

Yes... less than a quarter. Some of these women were practically living on carbs alone. Breakfast was oatmeal. Lunch was a bagel. Dinner was a plate of pasta. And there was no real protein in sight.

Hello!!! It's 1995 calling, and they want their diet back! I mean, who in this day and age eats like that anymore?

Needless to say, there was a stark difference between the IVF responses of these two groups. The higher protein group benefited from significantly higher blastocyst development, pregnancy rates, and live birth rates than the low-protein group.

Ultimately, among women who devoted more than a quarter of their diet to protein--and just as importantly, who devoted less than 40 percent of their diet to carbs--pregnancy rates skyrocketed to 80 percent.

And it's not the first time researchers have observed trends like this, either. Another study presented last year showed similar increases in fertility when women made the switch to a lower-carb, higher-protein diet.

In this previous study, blastocyst formation jumped from 19 percent to 45 percent. And pregnancy rates rose even higher, from 17 percent to 83 percent.

Even women who weren't IVF patients--but who were struggling with complicating factors like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)--saw a fertility boom with carb restriction.

This is an incredible payoff for a simple dietary change.

Researchers admit that they were stunned to learn that the micronutrient content of a woman's diet could possibly play a role in her ability to get pregnant. (Of coursethey were.)

But the results are clear as day. And, they concede, maybe it's time to return to our basic natural diets.

Gee, that sounds awfully familiar. Now, let me see... who's been saying the same thing for years now?

Oh, that's right. I have.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

Salt shakedown
Dear Reader,

Here's a little something ripped from the headlines of every major newspaper across the country: "Low-Salt Benefits Questioned."

It seems that a big-time panel of government scientists has concluded that low-sodium diets are unsupported by research. Which means that current guidelines surrounding salt intake are full of hot air.

I love it. On so many levels. And here's why...

I have been telling people for years that there is only a small sub-segment of the population (about 5 percent) that has salt sensitive hypertension.

And now, along comes this study that shows there is no evidence that very low salt diets prevent heart disease. They even went so far as to say that there is no evidence that people who already have heart disease or diabetes should cut their sodium intake at all.

Current guidelines recommend a limit of 2,300 mg of salt per day. That's about a teaspoon.

For people who are 51 or older, are African American, or who have hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease (in other words, over half of all Americans), the guidelines call for no more than 1,500 mg per day of sodium.

And finally, the American Heart Association (yes, those dolts again) refuses to change their rigid recommendation that every American stick to this limit, and consume 1,500 mg of salt or less per day.

Not that any of these recommendations are working out so well. Most Americans consume an average of 3,400 mg per day, because processed and packaged foods are packed with sodium.

Perhaps the AHA should recommend that Americans limit their intake of processed foods? But, oh wait, they can't do that. Not when so many of these same foods feature the AHA's own "heart healthy" seal of approval on their packaging.

We love to demonize certain foods and deify others. And more often than not, we do it without any scientific justification, too. It's just the American way. And the whole salt debacle is yet another example of this conundrum.

But here's what bothers me. This is another of those examples where we've been following certain recommendations only to find out those recommendations are patently wrong and misguided.

Just like we've done with the crusade against fat, we shape public health policies around these "guidelines" that seemingly come out of nowhere. We hammer home these messages to the public, even when they are meaningless...and maybe even harmful.

If I sound angry, it's because I am. We simply can't keep chasing our tails. We need to find the truth--or maybe we just have to let the truth we already know out.

Because guess what? I think we do already know it. But, the powers that be are simply unwilling to back down and reshape their dogmatic recommendations that just don't work.

That's why I just can't blame the populace for the state of this country's health.

Food manufacturers--and this may be the only benefit of the doubt I ever give them--follow the guidelines set out by the government. (Of course, whether or not these two are in cahoots with each other is whole different topic for another day.)

In the end, the public just does what they're told, too. And what happens? We have a health crisis in the form of the diabesity epidemic to show for it.

In fact, we spent 500 BILLION dollars on diabetes and its complications, last year alone. Pardon the pun, but that's a whole lot of dough.

Just think of how much good we could have done with that money if we weren't eating ourselves to death due to ill-conceived nutritional (and ultimately, economic) policies.

And I hate to say it, but until someone, somewhere is willing to relegate political and monetary gain to the backseat where it belongs, things are only going to get much worse from here.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred
