Carnivore Diet Result: 12 Months Bloodwork

It was over a year ago when I started the Carnivore Diet and I think it is a tremendously powerful tool for a lot of individuals who are suffering from anxiety, gut issues, and autoimmune disease. I myself was suffering from gut issues and anxiety and I really didn’t know what to do until I learned how to get optimized through the Carnivore Diet.

What is the Carnivore Diet?

The Carnivore Diet is the elimination of most common foods such as fruits and vegetables. It is a diet constructed purely of animal foods.

Yes, you read that right. Carnivore Diet means eating only meat and other animal-derived foods such as fish, dairy and eggs.

Many individuals who are interested in this diet may have concerns that it is unhealthy and incomplete. For those concerned, I’ve pulled my bloodwork to show you how it affects my body and how the biomarkers have evolved after being carnivore for over a year.

If you are as skeptical as I was of the Carnivore diet and the risks of removing fruits and vegetables in order to get complete nutrition then this article may help by sharing more specifics, my lab results and their interpretation with Dr. Paul Saladino (CarnivoreMD)

Before digging into my lab results, let’s first dive into understanding some of the most common markers you may want to check.

High-sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP)

It is used to detect an increase in protein in the blood. High CRP is a non-specific inflammatory marker that the liver produces in response to inflammation the body is reacting to.

hs-CRP Reference Range: 
Optimal: less than 1.0 mg/L
Moderate: 1.0 to 3.0 mg/L
High: above 3.0 mg/L

I did a lab test back in June 2019 and my CRP was higher. It was borderline 2.9. At the time I was likely training too often and my sleep was not well regulated.

After a few months making these adjustments, it went down to <0.3 in my labs in October 2019. This is a valuable test as inflammation is likely a large culprit to many of the modern health issues we see in people today.
