We’ve been following the Whole 30 Paleo detox for a month and are now starting the phase of re-introducing certain foods to test for intolerances. Our reasons for starting the detox were different, Lynn has suffered for years with acid reflux, waking each morning with a sore stomach and throat and has recently started taking proton pump inhibitors in attempt to ease the problem. The Whole 30 program has been great for both of us, we’ve been eating clean and have felt the benefit in terms of increased energy, much better mood (me), undisturbed sleep and Lynn no longer requires the tablets.
Lynn chose to reintroduce milk first, as it’s a single food group and commonly causes exacerbation of symptoms in sufferers of acid reflux. It’s remarkably easy to do the lactose intolerance test at home if you have a blood glucose meter. The test requires you to drink 500ml of fresh milk and record your blood glucose levels immediately afterwards and then at regular intervals for 1-2 hours afterwards. Lactose is the sugar found in milk and is actually a disaccharide comprised of galactose and glucose. In the test, when you monitor blood sugar levels over time you would expect the levels to keep rising for a while and then they will start to drop off again after your insulin gets to work. I had no indication that I had a problem with either milk or dairy so I was going to do the test as a control subject. These test results suggest that Lynn does not have a problem with lactose and in fact she didn’t even notice any gastro upset with the half litre of organic whole milk she had as part of the test. We are both left with the need to do more testing, I will repeat the lactose tolerance blood test and Lynn will try reintroducing different forms of dairy. Did the percentage of adults who have at least one of three CVD risk factors change from 1999 through 2010?
During 1999a€“2010, did the trends in the percentage of adults who have at least one of three CVD risk factors vary by race and ethnicity? During 1999a€“2010, did the trends in the percentage of adults who have at least one of three CVD risk factors vary by income?
In 2009a€“2010, about 47% of adults had at least one of three risk factors for cardiovascular diseasea€”uncontrolled high blood pressure, uncontrolled high levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol, or current smoking.
Men were more likely than women to have at least one of the three cardiovascular disease risk factors. From 1999a€“2000 through 2009a€“2010, a decrease was observed in the percentage of non-Hispanic white and Mexican-American adults who had at least one of the three risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The prevalence of uncontrolled high blood pressure and of uncontrolled high LDL cholesterol declined between 1999a€“2000 and 2009a€“2010, but no significant change occurred in the percentage of adults who smoke cigarettes.
From 1999a€“2000 through 2009a€“2010, a significant decrease was observed in the percentages of non-Hispanic white and Mexican-American adults with at least one of the three risk factors for CVD (Figure 2). From 1999a€“2000 through 2009a€“2010, the percentage of adults with at least one of the three CVD risk factors decreased in all income groups (Figure 3). Over the 12-year period from 1999 through 2010, the percentage of adults aged 20 and over with uncontrolled high blood pressure or uncontrolled high levels of LDL-C declined. Uncontrolled high blood pressure: A measured systolic blood pressure of 140 mm Hg or more, or a diastolic blood pressure of 90 mm Hg or more (5), based on an average of up to three measurements.
Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) were used for these analyses.
The NHANES sample is selected through a complex, multistage design that includes selection of primary sampling units (counties), household segments within the counties, and, finally, sample persons from selected households.


Persons with missing blood pressure or LDL-C measurements were excluded from this analysis (none were missing smoking status).

Many people suggest that the practice of elimination followed by a controlled re-introduction of individual food types is the best way to identify food intolerances but in my experience it is not at all straight forward. It feels important to isolate the individual elements that might have contributed to the improvement following their removal from our diet so we can eliminate them permanently. The first morning after drinking skimmed milk for breakfast, she reacted with bloating and soreness within 30 mins. These were both fine with no early side effects but later in the afternoon some symptoms did materialise. In most people the enzyme lactase (released in the small intestine) will break down lactose into the two individual monsaccharides and blood sugar levels will rise as a result. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are all risk factors that could lead to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke. Having at least one of three CVD risk factors did not significantly differ by age group among men. Over this 12-year period, the percentage of adults in the lowest income group with at least one of three CVD risk factors was higher than the percentages in the other income groups.
During the same time period, the percentage of adults who smoked cigarettes did not decrease significantly. Persons defined as having uncontrolled high blood pressure may or may not have been taking medication.
Persons defined as having uncontrolled high LDL-C may or may not have been taking medication. NHANES is a cross-sectional survey designed to monitor the health and nutritional status of the civilian, noninstitutionalized U.S.
The sample design includes oversampling to obtain reliable estimates of health and nutritional measures for population subgroups. Because serum LDL-C levels were derived for participants who were examined in the morning session only, fasting subsample weightsa€”which account for the differential probabilities of selection, nonresponse, and noncoveragea€”were incorporated into the estimation process.

This then required further testing as people with milk sensitivity can either have problems with lactose (milk sugar) or some of the proteins in milk.
People who are said to be lactose intolerant no longer produce the lactase enzyme and therefore blood glucose levels will not rise as much as those who are not lactose intolerant. The recently announced Million Hearts Initiative is aimed at preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes over the next 5 years (2a€“4). Over the 12-year period, the percentage of non-Hispanic black persons with one of three CVD risk factors was higher than the percentages of non-Hispanic white or Mexican-American persons.
More than one-quarter were current smokers, more than 23% had uncontrolled high levels of LDL-C, and almost 12% had uncontrolled high blood pressure. Department of Health and Human Services' poverty guidelines were the measure used to calculate this index (7). African-American persons, Mexican-American persons, those having low income, and persons aged 60 and over were oversampled during 1999a€“2010.
The standard errors of the percentages were estimated using Taylor series linearization, a method that incorporates the sample design (10). This does mean that my test results will need to be repeated and aren’t currently that useful, it also means that I will have to keep a close eye on my fasting blood sugar levels for a while. This report expands on results previously published (2) by presenting the most recent prevalence estimates and trends of uncontrolled high blood pressure, uncontrolled high levels of low-density lipoproteins cholesterol (LDL-C), and current cigarette smoking among adults aged 20 and over. In 2009a€“2010, almost 58% of non-Hispanic black adults had at least one risk factor, while about 47% of non-Hispanic white adults and almost 45% of Mexican-American adults had at least one of the three risk factors for CVD.
Middle-income adults were more likely to have at least one of three risk factors for CVD compared with higher-income adults.
Adults who were male, or female aged 60 and over, or non-Hispanic black, or of lower income were more likely to have one of the risk factors for CVD compared with their counterparts.
The cut point for participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is 130% of the poverty level.
The survey consists of interviews conducted in participants' homes, standardized physical examinations conducted in mobile examination centers, and laboratory tests utilizing blood and urine specimens provided by participants during the physical examination. Beginning in 2007, all Hispanic persons, rather than only Mexican-American persons, were oversampled.
LDL-C was calculated for a subsample of participants who fasted and were examined in the morning.
However, sampling fractions were set so that the sample size for Mexican-American participants would not be very different from previous years and would be sufficient to produce reliable estimates for this group (9).
To test for linear trends, the null hypothesis of nonlinear trend was examined using orthogonal polynomials.
The upshot is that the lactose free milk test was a little inconclusive and Lynn needed to go clean for a few days and then start again with the milk test.

    Might be a good idea to cut back.
