Still catching up on the threads of not this recent #LCB18 but the more distant #LowCarbSanDiego, and this paper on the prevalence of the disease the medical profession is just starting to understand, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, or NAFLD.
NAFLD is important in the context of diabetes reversal and nutrition.
There is no currently known drug treatment for NAFLD. Its causes are related to nutrition, and specifically high-carbohydrate/low-fat nutrition, and recent studies are showing it abates with nutrition approaches:

Thanks again for publishing one of my photographs, @DCPolicyCenter, in this excellent piece by @DataKateR.

The last time I toured @NPR’s Washington, DC headquarters was in 2013, after which I wrote this post.
At the time, depending on which way you looked from the 7th floor (East or West), you saw a dramatically different view of the social determinants of health. NPR’s headquarters happen to sit on the border of several census tracts, 47.01, 47.02, and 106.
Washington, DC has changed a lot since then – we just crossed 700,000 residents, which doesn’t exceed the all time high of 800,000 in 1950, however, it’s a new record for us.

There proved to be many, what I called “gaspworthy” moments at Low Carb Breckenridge #LCB18. This is one of those after the fact.
In this release USDA and HHS Announce New Step Toward Added Transparency in Development of 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines | Food and Nutrition Service and related documents, most notably Dietary Guidelines | Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion new questions are under consideration.
This paper, published in JAMA Surgery last week, provides important evidence of the value of providing medically-necessary care to people who are trasngender or gender nonconforming.
he primary importance of this paper is as the first study to our knowledge that broadly evaluates national temporal trends in gender-affirming surgery for transgender patients in the United States.
The importance to physicians and the people we serve is the above plus the data in Table 1: “Characteristics of Patients Who Have a Diagnosis Code for Transsexualism or Gender Identity Disorder in the National Inpatient Sample”
Of the 37,827 inpatient encounters in the sample, 14,128, or 40.5 % are for Mental Health. This dwarfs the number for actual treatment-related reasons, such as gender affirming surgery.

I was only learning about metabolic health (and San Diego was where I first learned the term – thanks to Sarah Hallberg, DO, MS – @DrSarahHallberg) then. Interesting that I only learned about it …
