Falling Levels of Testosterone in the Elderly (Low TestLate-onset hypogonadism)

Majid Ali, M.D. Blood testosterone levels fall progressively with age. A large number of men aged >60 years have serum testosterone levels that are below the lower limits of young adult men aged 20–30 years. This age-related change has been designated as late-onset hypogonadism (LOH). In many, but not all, elderly individuals, it is associated with significant quality of life

Humans Are Not At the Top of the Food Chain

Majid Ali, M.D. Dr. Ali’s Fermentation Course We humans position ourselves at the top of the food chain, and then celebrate that delusion in many ways. Biology is an equalizer. I do not see the so-called food chain as a chain, nor do I recognize any exalted positions in the hunter-hunted dynamics. In the eternal predator-prey dance of life and

Prevention of Premature Aging of the Brain

Majid Ali, M.D. A healthy brain breathes its oxygen freely. A brain sickens when it cannot breathes its oxygen freely. When a brain cell does not breathe its oxygen freely, it begins to ferment, produce acids and alcohols, increase its free radical activity, and thicken its innard fluids. This, simply stated is the story of premature aging of the brain.

Food Part of Dr. Ali’s Insulin-Monitored DIABETES Reversal Plan

Majid Ali, M.D.    (Taken from my book “Insulin-monitored Diabetes Reversal Plan” This plan has two core aspects: (1) Initial assessment of the insulin status with a three-hour insulin and glucose profiles obtained following the standard 75-gram glucose load; and (2) monitoring the success or absence of it with follow-up insulin and glucose profiling. My personal series of pairs of insulin and glucose

Insulin-Monitored (IM) Diabetes Reversal Plan

Insulin-Monitored (IM) Diabetes Reversal Plan (With Objective, Reproducible Criteria) Majid Ali, M.D. My analysis of a large body of personal data concerning insulin excess (hyperinsulinemia) and diabetes shows that insulin profiling is the only reliable form of testing for these entities. Blood glucose and A1c tests are reliable neither for initial screening nor for follow-up. Post-glucose load 3-hour insulin profiling used as a screening test for both hyperinsulinemia and diabetes
