    Hey Robb!

    Why does hyperinsulinism cause aldosterone to increase? I’m in nursing school and am doing a presentation on the kidneys. You mentioned this in “Clearing Up Kidney Confusion Part Deux” but didnt mention why?

      Well…exactly mechanism…I don’t know! Elevated insulin does tend to elevate cAMP and this may be a player in up regulation but I’m grasping here. that aldosterone DOES increase with insulin resistance is clear:

      Exactly why…nto sure. In hibernating animals insulin resistance drive fat storage AND increased sodium/water retention. In a cyclic fashion this is likely adaptive, how it plays out now however, not so much. this could also have a role in mitigating glucose concentrations…increasing fluid volume will decrease relative glucose concentrations and thereby mitigate adganced glycation endproduct formation. But again, I’m reaching here.

    Hey Robb,

    You guys have recently been talking about the lack of gross motor skill development exhibited in some of today’s youth, so I wanted to throw this book your way: http://www.rie.org/product/unfolding

    I feel that anyone who is interested in human movement would do well to understand how we learn and develop from day one. As Greg alluded to in this podcast, these motor skills are precursors to a whole host of cognitive and emotional patterns; so getting it right early can facilitate the development of the whole person. I’m sure you have a ton of resources and strategies for your pack, but you will probably find this book interesting. Thanks for all you and Greg do for the community.

    Robb, you mentioned a trainer/coach named “Edo Porthal” (sp?). Can you point me in the right direction to look at his training methods?
