In December we pioneered the first Metabolic Kraft clinic in the UK. Together with Dr Donal Collins and collegue Debbie Cox we tested 7 of my current clients to provide them with real-time Kraft curves and a metabolic profile interpretation like this
A “Postprandial insulin assay is the earliest biomarker for diagnosing pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and increased cardiovascular risk” Dr James J DiNicolantonio.
My clients therefore were eager to know what sort of shape their metabolic health was in. In addition this assessment allows if there is metabolic dysfunction a faster response to lifestyle changes than glucose assessment.
Made famous by Dr. Joseph Kraft, a clinical pathologist, who ran 3,650 glucose-insulin tolerance tests. developing what is now known as the Kraft curve.
Of the 3,650 glucose tolerance tests, 1,713 were defined as normal (for diabetes mellitus) according to the criteria of the American Diabetes Association.
Of the 1,713 tests which would have been judged normal strictly on the basis of glucose tolerance, 50% were demonstrated abnormal on the basis of insulin tolerance, and another 14% were borderline results. 2.5% were displayed insulin response.
This means that 2/3 of the tests that would have been judged normal by the Glucose Tolerant Test were found to be latent diabetic when the Kraft Prediabetes Profile test was taken into consideration.
This is the power of insulin assessment!
My clients were all in good metabolic health and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to learn more from each other and from themselves in what action they have taken over the last few years is keeping them healthy.
Some of the comments from the day were:
“It was very enlightening. Pleased my ‘internals’ are working well… must be all the good groundwork we have been putting in”
“Thank you for this amazing health check. It is reassuring to know all’s well.”
“Great experience, nice to meet other people interested in their health. The whole experience was really well organised and professional. Thank you for the information.”
“The new insulin testing offered by Taylormade Performance & Rehab is truly enlightening. Andy’s explanation of insulin’s role in the body and associated potential diseases, coupled with my own personalised insulin resistance profile gave a real insight into my own health. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to look after themselves both today and for their future selves.”
“Long term health has been a key driver for changing my eating habits, I want to be a fit and healthy role model for my children and I want to be around to watch them grow up.
The metabolic testing was really part of that whole journey - it confirmed to me that I’m on the right path and that I am healthy- if I hadn’t made the changes I did 2 years ago then based on the results I would most certainly be more at risk of disease and poor long term health.”
If you are interested to learn more about the Kraft test pllease also see the soon to be launched site www.meterbolic.org and video attached below.
We would love to add more sites around the UK and the world. So, if this sparks your interest and you want to have a test, support or collaborate, then please drop a DM to myself for information and discussion.
Would love to hear from you and discuss your role in the next phase of our Metabolic Revolution!
