I am a new member of this community and English is not my native language so take my opinion for what its worth. I have not followed any of the mentioned "drama" and do not take any sides.
I am sure Dr.K gets a lot of stuff wrong and his attitude and ego seem to be bigger than most, however, he still is a very valuable, prolific and UNIQUE part of this community. He seems to be a cross between several communities - Paleo, Doctors, Quantified Self. There are other Paleo MDs, so what makes him really unique and valuable is the Quantified aspect of his persona. The Quilt is a true Paleo Quant Doctor. He really looks for context. He seems to have access to a lot of lab tests data ,both personal and patients, which allows him to quantify conditions, improvements as well as observe patterns through many lab results. He does not simply read papers, studies, and journals.
At the end of the day, he is the best and most prolific Paleo medical resource for lab testing. He trials and refines his ideas on his patients and himself through numerous lab tests. Thus, while some of his theories and presentations might have flaws, he still provides a very valuable information and hands on experience for free. I would appreciate him for his strengths and unique perspective, while acknowledging his weaknesses.
I seem to not have expressed myself properly and to have appeared as some Quilt die hard fan boy. I couldn't care less about most of Quilt's not well thought out, badly presented, poorly sourced ideas and hypotheses. I do not follow his protocols. However, I have GREAT respect for this guy because of his quantified approach and clinical experimentation. He has access to vast medical resources and most importantly is ACTIVELY using them to improve his own and the public knowledge and understanding of concepts. I can only hope that one day I might encounter a similar doctor in my personal medical journeys and interactions with medical professionals. If this thread results in less or no output from him, this would be a great loss not only for the Paleo community.
