Hello,

I appreciate you blogging about this issue and informing others. I work for the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau, which is a not-for-profit organization that promotes health information. We have an article on this topic over at our site, http://dsib.org/GSK.

Thank you for your time,

The precedent here is worrisome though. Let us say that the FDA officially declares obesity a 'disease state' but 'not a disease' and that anything related to obesity in any way, even indirectly, is hence essentially a 'medicine'. What implications might this have for all supplements, even for ordinary foods? Will the FDA end up being petitioned to put warning labels and support extra taxes on meat and cheese because fat is considered unhealthy by today's mainstream standards, for example?

Hello Regina!

Just wanted you to know I truly appreciate your work!

A few years back, we both posted on an AOL debate board. That was when I impressed regulars by calculating their TG, using only their TC, HDL and LDL -- ring a bell?

Your March 20 column on Dr. Wortman was of great interest to me! I should note my own lipids improvements were even more impressive than his study group!

Perhaps, one day, you can help me better understand why my glucose levels tend to be higher (88 or so vs 78 - 80 mg/dl) in the A.M. than after much shorter fasting periods later in the day (even with serious carb restrictions in late meal).

Not a diabetic, but frequent testing keeps me on my toes! Also helps me better understand my glycogen "tank" capacity, lipid relationships, etc!

Best regards,

Jack

Has the ASBP been notified of this? Their responses will undoubtedly carry more weight.

I believe so.

What do they care if they increase the paperwork burdens of the nations health system? Helping to prevent disease is not their real goal, their real goal is only to increase their own profits, job security and phony scientific legitimacy. It's a racket.

Does this mean that Medicare and Medicaid will be reequired to support claims on this disease state?
