kpfleger Posted March 27 Report Share Posted March 27 Has anyone built a list of normal ranges for common blood labs for CR diets? Or have links to good data on the subject? Many labs are affected by CR or other healthy diets. Eg WBC is lower under WFPB vegan & CR diets. BUN levels are lower in low-protein diets. Etc. I'm aware that Luigi Fontana has published some studies with some lab values (eg https://www.pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.0308291101) but I haven't seen any papers that cover even the full range of stuff a super-common & inexpensive CBC would provide. Eg BUN is not in that paper. The CALERIE cohort has been studied extensively with several papers published---do any datasets publicly available anywhere present the summary stats for most CBC blood labs for this cohort? I know Fontana did some work with members of the CR Society a ways back---is there a summary table with labs for those tests that covers more than the basic half dozen CVD risk factors? I don't have time to trace down all the papers and study what's provided in the supplemental material at the moment, and curious if someone else has done that or if they know of a place where researchers have put the summary stats data for the broader list of markers. I know Dean has shared his labs in these forums. Have there been any efforts to collect more than n=1 here, even if only n=5ish or something like that?
