Dietary Influences on ESR Levels: Unraveling the Impact of Diet on Inflammation with the COR One

In our ongoing analysis of anonymized data from COR One users, we've uncovered fascinating correlations between diet and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), a key marker of inflammation. By examining the dietary habits reported by our users, we've identified several diets that significantly influence ESR levels.

Overview of the Data

The data set includes information from a diverse group of users, each providing ESR levels alongside age, gender, and various tags or notes regarding their dietary habits. No personal identifying information is used.We focused on identifying specific diet trends and their impact on ESR levels. Here’s what we found:

1. High-Protein, Low-Carbohydrate Diets:  

Users following the Lion Diet or a Carnivore diet, both of which are high in protein and low in carbohydrates, displayed average ESR levels of 8.2 and 9.1 respectively. Similarly, the ketogenic diet, another low-carb approach, aligns closely with these findings. This suggests that such diets may be effective in reducing inflammation.

2. Intermittent Fasting:  

Another intriguing discovery is related to intermittent fasting. Participants practicing fasting reported an average ESR of 6.4, indicating lower inflammation levels. This highlights intermittent fasting as a potential dietary practice for managing inflammation.

3. High Sugar Intake:  

In stark contrast, users who reported a high sugar intake—whether through specific foods or a generally sugary diet—had an average ESR of 15.3. This considerable increase suggests a strong link between sugar consumption and elevated levels of inflammation.


Our analysis underscores the significant impact that dietary choices can have on inflammation and overall health. For users looking to manage their ESR levels, adopting low-carb diets or intermittent fasting may offer substantial benefits. Conversely, high sugar intake is detrimental, emphasizing the need for mindful eating habits.

These insights not only deepen our understanding of dietary impacts on health but also empower our users with data-driven guidance to tailor their dietary choices to manage inflammation. As we continue to analyze and expand our dataset, we look forward to uncovering more valuable trends that can aid in the pursuit of personalized health strategies.

At COR Health, we are committed to empowering users with data-driven insights to make informed health decisions. As we continue to analyze user data, we aim to provide even more personalized and actionable recommendations.
