sirtuin Posted July 10, 2016 Report Share Posted July 10, 2016 (edited) [Admin note: I've (obviously) shifted this conversation about HbA1c from its old home in the thread about best biomarkers to a new thread dedicated to the topic, since I think it is of general and lasting enough interest to deserve it's own thread.] Mechanism, Mike Lustgarten, a regular on the CR Society Facebook Group prides himself on trying to optimize every biomarker based on any available literature from healthy agers and long-lived populations. I don't always agree with his assessment of optimal levels for certain biomarkers, but his blog is a good place to look for population-based evidence for optimal levels of various biomarkers, that is if you want to avoid doing the literature search on PubMed yourself... --Dean Has Lustgarten mentioned his fasting glucose / post-prandial glucose / A1C% targets? I've been curious what others are setting for a goal in these areas. Last I checked, my A1C measured 4.9% on a low-carb diet (down from 5.3% on a higher carb diet), although I'm not sure if lower is continually better or if there's some optimal U-Curve there (beneficial hormesis?)
