Ivor Cummins joins Carl and Richard to talk about markers of disease. What should you test for? How do you interpret your results? This is often the first decision one makes when considering a lifestyle change to improve your health. Are there better tests you can do for heart disease risk? (hint, yes!)
Richard said his CAC results post on Facebook were shared 48 times, but it's now been 55 times ... 57 times ... 59 times ... ummm many many times.
Ivor CumminsIvor Cummins is a Chemical Engineer who spent 25 years in Engineering Lead and Engineering Manager positions. He has worked in the Medical Device, Special Purpose Equipment and Electronic Component industries, always gravitating towards the most complex interactions where the Physics comes alive. His specialty throughout has been leadership in Complex Problem Solving Methodology (Comparative Analysis, Mechanistic Analysis and Experimental/Statistical Inference) - the ultimate destination was always Root Cause Resolution in the minimum timeframe. Following less-than-ideal blood test results he went back
to his Biochemical Engineering roots and intensively studied the mechanistic physics and primary drivers of Dyslipidemia, elevated GGT and Serum Ferritin. Ivor has analysed several hundred related papers and studies carried out over the past 5 decades, and a few prior to this period. He found the value of the technical expertise gained during his career to be of paramount, indeed crucial importance in this odyssey, realizing that to be successful in determining root cause and solution in this complex arena, required far more than a general medical background.
