Metformin is big with the life extension set. I don't know why.

Perhaps because as screwtape said its mechanism(s) of action are not clear, and so the fruits and nuts over in Palo Alto can make whatever claims they want for it. I believe there have been some experiments done on metformin in cell culture which add to its mystique while having no serious relevance to human bodies.

So insulin normally tells cells to ‘open’ and accept necessary energy/cell fuel from blood glucose.

But, the onset of insulin resistance makes the cells resistant to insulin’s efforts and they don’t accept enough glucose. This then requires higher insulin doses to achieve a partial brute-force outcome. This dynamic in turn raises insulin levels and keeps resting or fasting blood sugar high with more glucose getting stored as fat rather than expended as energy. The cells, however, think they are starving and demand more food - you eat and the cycle repeats.

Eventually the brute force secretion of excess insulin wears the pancreas out. Insulin production fails and you are fucked with T2D.
Yes, insulin is required to allow glucose in the blood enter cells. Resistance simply means you need more insulin to have the same effect. As resistance develops, more insulin is needed, while at the same time the higher glucose levels are slowly killing off the pancreatic cells that make insulin. We know insulin resistance is heritable, and that it is expressed when one becomes overweight; you can come from a family of Type 2 diabetics and avoid it by staying thin and exercising a lot. It's obvious from the mechanism above that type 2 DM is a condition that progresses (diet-control, then diet + metformin, then diet + metformin + sulfonylurea, then diet + insulin), but the important thing to understand is that good control slows the progression as you keep your beta cells alive for longer if they aren't exposed to high blood sugars. Making the effort to do it right when the disease is mild is therefore very important, as it will do you more good in the long run than being obsessional about it at a later stage.

Metformin is interesting, as it has several mechanisms of action, and they aren't well understood. It does not squeeze out extra insulin from the pancreas (like sulfonylureas and their descendants) so it rarely causes hypoglycemia when used alone. The main effect seems to be on the liver's control of the short term storage and dispensation of glucose. Glucose is stored as glycogen in the liver, as a ready-use locker - a few molecules can be snipped off the chain and secreted into the blood when needed to keep the blood sugar at adequate levels when exercising or between meals. This is called gluconeogenesis. Metformin was felt to increase uptake of sugar into the liver, and to slow it's release later on. If, through insulin resistance, you have higher blood sugars the flip side of the coin is that sugar is stuff that ought to be intracellular. So the cells are short on glucose for energy and they don't like it. They signal the liver to release more glucose, raising the blood sugar but not doing them much good because that sugar still can't enter the cells. Type 2 diabetics have a lot more gluconeogenesis going on than non-diabetics as a result, and metformin interferes with this. It is also felt to interfere with the signalling by inhibiting production of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood glucose, and to reverse the insulin-insensitivity of some tissues to a small degree. An old, cheap, safe drug (more so than phenformin, which I'm old enough to remember). Should be in the water supply of fat western countries.

Well, I just finished watching November - absolutely loved it! The story, suitably nutty, was very enjoyable (and well acted) but for me, the real selling point was the cinematography! Almost every shot is like a work of art; I could easily see framed stills being used to decorate an artsy-fartsy home. I particularly liked the stark, almost bleached, black & white scenes that hyper-focus the eye center-screen.

Oh, and apart from selling my soul to the devil, I want to make a few Kratts. The poor snowman-kratt - I felt really sorry for him/it.

Anyway, top movie, thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to snaffle the DVD and add it to my collection.

A small difference in glucose control allows hyperglycemia to occur. Hyperglycemia kills beta cells in the pancreas. Remaining beta cells compensate by secreting extra insulin, masking the problem for several years, but also accelerating it as extra insulin increases appetite for carbs.

At this point you may be able to 'cure' yourself with dramatic weight loss and lots of exercise, but you will have to keep up with that regime forever. Otherwise, we have drugs to flog the few remaining beta cells to squeeze out more insulin, drugs to slow glucose absorption, and exogenous insulin. Pick your parents well, because you can't change the genes they give you.

Interesting. And thank you.

It’s weird that apparently non amateur organisations perpetuate the myth of confusion.

.. can see online there are two engaged camps. There is a hand waving crowd blaming carbs for too much glucose causing spikes and carb-crashes with stead consumption of hyper processed food keeping the insulin flow a constant. The alt right here are the carnivore, animal only, never-carb dieters

But their canon is “just a theory”. Supported nonetheless by the West’s obvious fucked up diet and food deserts. “Edible food like substances”. AKA: Doritos.

Then you have the pro-carb people with a hard vegan woke-wing. They are generally anti fat and call out the anti-carbers as tin foil wearing eco-Nazis.

It’s a whole new battlefield.

Weird. I’ve been looked up Type 2 diabetes (for a friend) and it appears “we” don’t actually know what causes it.

Sure there are clear, but general correlations. Being over weight. Being lazy. Having bad genes from mummy. Being stressed (cortisol). Not sleeping properly. Visceral fat. Lots of chicken and the egg flags.

And the mechanism, once in place, is clear. A broken down pancreas that’s had to brute force glucose into increasingly intolerant cells with progressive over-doses of increasingly ineffective insulin.

But the exact dynamic bridging the general indicators to the deliverable is frustratingly elusive.

Hmmm.

In April 2019 I was not particularly happy. So I set myself a challenge.

My vision was to achieve improved personal satisfaction verging on happiness. My strategy was to reassert control by achieving 4 measurable goals over a fixed period of 12 months.

1. Plan to quit work on my terms and take a minimum of 3 months off over spring/summer.
2. Finish my MA research to my satisfaction and achieve a strong independently assessed grade.
3. Get a job I actually enjoyed with sane people around me. Or fuck off overseas.
4. Get healthy, with KPIs of dropping from 89kg to 69kg (BMI based metric) and embracing daily exercise.

Today, with a weird blip (but whatever) I can finally say “mission accomplished” to all 4. :dance:

I don’t know about tomorrow. But today is a good day.

So, police trying to go hot and heavy on someone expressing an opinion on Twatter get a smack down in the courts.



Ex-cozzer makes a humorous comment ("I was assigned mammal at birth, but my orientation is fish. Don't mis-species me."), trannies whine about hate, and police end up at his work place claiming a non-crime hate incident. There is no doubt in my mind that this was intimidation.
Harry Miller was visited by Humberside Police at work in January last year after a complaint about his tweets.

He was told he had not committed a crime, but it would be recorded as a non-crime "hate incident".

The court found the force's actions were a "disproportionate interference" with his right to freedom of expression.

Officers visited Mr Miller's workplace and then spoke with him on the phone, and he was left with the impression "that he might be prosecuted if he continued to tweet", according to a judge.

Speaking after the ruling, Mr Miller, from Lincolnshire, said: "This is a watershed moment for liberty - the police were wrong to visit my workplace, wrong to 'check my thinking'."

His solicitor Paul Conrathe added: "It is a strong warning to local police forces not to interfere with people's free speech rights on matters of significant controversy.

Sargon of Akkad mentions the Slymepit in the same breath as GamerGate and ComicsGate.


The Slymepit needs to be credited with radicalising Sargon, making Rebecca Watson fat, calling game-journalist-adjacent sluts sluts, running down fatties for Hitler, and electing Trump for two terms. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :pray:

Wow! Because any US employer of over 5 years is on a hook that is very hard to get off. He must have really pissed someone off, and/or also made a poor game day decision not to retire before he was fired.

“Okay, George, so what’s the bottom line? Is it actually possible to lose my pension?” Yes, but you must be a very, very bad person. The primary way to lose your pension is to be convicted of a crime against the national security of the United States (you’ll find a listing of these types of crimes under 5 USC Section 8312).

How do you share meals with your wife and children?
Sons overseas. Daughter is a Uni vagrant.

Wife is health conscious and likes everything on my list. She will supplement dinner protein with large salads.

I do the lunch prep for both of us and most of the dinners. So I might do steak all round With a couple of salads for the ladies and some extra poached eggs for myself.

Whole foods are whole foods. Everyone wins.

You think that nothing but meat, cheese, nuts, butter, and berries is a healhty diet?
To be more specific (and add in butter and squeezed lemon)



I don’t think this is a life saver. I know.

Plus, meat, eggs and cheese provide a lot of options.

In any case. So single whole food ingredients. Nothing gets stored in the pantry - it’s pretty much all fridge and counter.

For a given day, swap out one of the pictured meals. Eat only at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. And supplement the two meals at 9:00pm with a lite smoothie of 50g banana, 60g strawberries, 10g blueberries, 20g raspberries, 250ml unsweetened almond milk. Or a Greek yoghurt mixed with cinnamon and turmeric.

I’m also toying with a daily square of 85-90% chocolate.

Walk 3km a day at a fast clip and do some light 10kg dumbbells.

Bobs your uncle.

It's interesting to hear PZ whimper about his legal bill. I'm sure it was a fun ego boost to hire a nationally known boutique name as a lawyer. Maybe next time he'll hire a competent local for half the price. Or even better, maybe next time he won't publicly defame people so blatantly.

We may even find out, since there is no current prejudice in the case. Carrier could still file again tomorrow in a Minnesota jurisdiction. :cdc:
