There is one mention of diet in the treatment of coronary artery disease and it’s here:
“Management of Risk Factors and Comorbidities
Risk reduction to prevent cardiovascular events includes blood pressure (BP) control and management of cholesterol and glucose levels. Lifestyle modifications (e.g., smoking cessation, increased physical activity, weight control, healthy diet) and management of comorbid conditions such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus can reduce overall and CVD-related mortality.”
…it’s just the words “healthy diet.”
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:

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.
