You can beat a family history of heart disease and improve gut health with customised nutrition

CASE STUDY & SUCCESS STORIES


Name: Viraj

Age: 45

Gender: Male

BMI: normal, 24


Case history: Viraj has a family history of heart disease. He came to us post-recovery of COVID-19 to help him with his deteriorating digestive health & improve his heart-related parameters. Based on his blood test results, his triglycerides and cholesterol levels were high. His high levels of hs-CRP in his blood indicated inflammation and a high level of Apolipo A and B, which indicate danger to his heart health. The HbA1c was 6.1, indicating that he was pre-diabetic. He was suffering from acid reflux and esophagitis. Furthermore, he struggled to focus on work post-lunch and remained unproductive the rest of the day.


Analysis by the best weight loss nutritionist in Hyderabad, Telangana, India: In our analysis of his dietary and lifestyle choices, we found that he was eating foods that support fat accumulation rather than fat recycling and that he was experiencing frequent highs and lows in energy levels, leading to fatigue episodes and low concentration and productivity at work. His diet primarily consists of quick-digesting food like regular dhals as the significant source of protein in his meals, which causes insulin spikes & dips, making him hungry after meals. In order to avoid the hunger pangs, he nibbled on chai with biscuits, which aggravated gastritis and negatively impacted his heart parameters. Additionally, he was consuming foods he is intolerant to, causing constant indigestion, acid reflux, stomach rumblings, bloating, and gas.


We advised him on an anti-inflammatory diet, which includes omega-3-rich foods. We asked him to switch to seed oils and to include foods like banana and mutton bone soup, which promote digestive health and introduced apple cider vinegar to help improve his gut. Introducing appropriate fasting & feasting periods, along with the right time intervals and nutrients in each meal, to improve his gut health. He used to avoid red meat and have more chicken, believing red meat could raise his triglycerides and cholesterol levels. During the consultation, we shared research papers that showed grass-fed red meat benefits the heart when consumed with vegetables and in controlled portions. We provided him with constant support and guidance throughout his journey.



Results: In less than a month, most foods that triggered his gut weren't an issue. Earlier, he would not be able to handle foods that had tomatoes, but now he could tolerate such foods comfortably. He also lost 4 inches of belly fat and 5 kilos of weight with minimal exercise. After three months, we could see his triglyceride levels dropped from 143 to 93, total cholesterol levels decreased from 201 to 156, HDL increased from 40 to 47 and hs-CRP from 7.9 to 4.9. Despite starting a new job in between, he can work for ten to twelve hours without getting tired or fatigued. He is also more focused and energetic now.
