Predictive Biomarker Tests: Use and Application for Evidence-based Care

Presentation by Senior Fellow Dr. Russell M. Jaffe, MD, Ph.D., CCN, investigating the role of Predictive Biomarker testing, their use and importance in practice, and the correlation of results towards long-term health.
This presentation provides a detailed overview of Predictive Biomarker Test objectives including how science philosophy influences what society observes and uses, how test interpretations can reference least risk or highest gain goal values rather than usual statistical ranges, and how test results can be translated into quality life years sacrificed/recoverable.

In addition to the above presentation, a special reference table for Predictive Biomarker Tests can be accessed by clicking here.

Diabetes: Food and Nutrients in Primary Practice

Chapter excerpt from Ingrid Kohlstadt's book "Food and Nutrients in Disease Management" by Senior Fellow Russell M. Jaffe, MD, Ph.D., CCN and Jayashree Mani, MS, CCN.

This chapter provides a contemporary overview of diabetes. Dietary patterns and nutrients that can improve glucose-insulin-energy function are emphasized. Strategic food choices and adequate essential nutrients improve outcomes in people with the continuum from metabolic syndrome to diabetes. Cellular metabolic homeostasis is disrupted long before diabetes becomes clinically apparent by elevated blood glucose or insulin. A direct consequence of these metabolic disturbances is free radical oxidative damage secondary to nutrient deficits detailed in this chapter.
