New to the sight. Love all of the great useful information I have been reading.
Recently met with Dr. Alan Green with regards to taking Rapamycin for longevity and healthspan.
I am a 41 year old made in what I consider to be very healthy 6’2", 185lbs, 34" waistline, and in good physical condition. Alan Green had me have some blood work taken and here are some of the results.
Cholesterol Total - 150
Triglyceride - 50
HDL - 39
LDL - 102
Chol/HDL Ratio - 3.9
Insulin Total Level 6.7
A1C - 5.2
EST AVG Glucose (EAG) - 103
HOMA-IR - 1.8
ALT - 28
AST - 13
Alan Green was intrigued because given my age and physical condition/health, my HOMA-IR was elevated. Was also intrigued by my ALT/AST numbers. Even though he said the numbers are in the normal range, typically the numbers are flipped.
He recommended taking Rapamycin on a weekly dose of 6mg’s and a low carb diet.
Anyone have any thoughts? I look forward to any feedback.
