Is that even possible? Not sure if there's a list for "paleo doctors" out there, but eh shrug I thought I'd ask. My last doctor (who WILL be switched) is absolutely clueless. A year since our last check-up, I've gained lots of muscle and lost BF;... (more)

My LDL cholesterol was 118 (total 236) & my doctor wants to put me on meds if it's not <100 in six months (even though my triglycerides were good - 83). He wouldn't even discuss LDL particle density. He told me to cut back on fast food,... (more)

Usually those types of numbers are for people with known heart disease/previous heart attacks etc. Your LDL should be less than 130 and your cholesterol under 200 - but I don't buy that number. If your HDL etc are fine then I don't see a... (more)

It's time for me to find a new primary care physician. Does anyone know of a paleo-friendly one in the DC / Silver Spring, MD area?

I've been searching for a paleo-friendly doctor in the DC area as well - there aren't any actual primary care doctors listed on the primal docs site (just a chiropractor) and I couldn't find any on another paleo doc finder site either. :\

Search for a naturopath, they'd be the most open-minded I believe. Quick google search: http://www.gaianaturopathic.com/

The list might be short if they won't put anyone on the show who has been openly critical of Dr. Oz. Like it or not, Dr. Oz is quite popular and influential. Who would you like to see on the show? And, why? (or is that a different question?) (more)

Check out paleophysiciansnetwork.com and paleofinder.com; may not yield results in your area (I live in a small Southern MD town, so I feel your pain), but it's a start!
