Inside drastic changes Dana White made to 'save his life' after horror diagnosis with 'cataclysmic' blood results | The Sun

DANA White completely turned his life around in just 10 weeks after being given horror news about his health.

The UFC boss, 53, was told he had just 10 years to live after a "life-threatening alert".

White has lost over 40lbs after taking drastic steps to improve his health.

He was handed a wake-up call by human biologist Gary Brecka.

Speaking to The Diary Of A CEO, Brecka explained how White's blood results triggered an alert in the middle of the night.

And he jumped on a plane straight away to meet the UFC chief and give him the "cataclysmic results".

Brecka revealed that White wanted to know his life-expectancy, which led the biologist to running tests.

The bloods were sent to a lab, and his triglyceride levels were almost 800.

Brecka explained: "Triglycerides are a measure of blood fat and shouldn't be over 149 – two or three hundred is a "cataclysmic level" but his was 768."

He flew to see White and told him his life expectancy based on the blood results and medical records from the last decade was just 10.4 years.

White was on seven medications, three for his blood pressure, and had "skyrocketing levels of cholesterol".

He was also pre-diabetic and insulin resistant.

Brecka said: "I told Dana 'I'm surprised you can sleep at night without waking up choking and gagging.

"I'm surprised it's not painful to bend down and tie your shoes.

"Your level of brain fog and fatigue has got to be at a crushing level – I'm surprised you can remember anything'."

Brecka said White responded: "I'm on a CPAP machine. I wake up every night and throw up in the middle of the night.

"I throw up so much I'm losing my voice."

A CPAP machine is a therapy method used to help people sleep by using airwave pressure.

White's UFC employees said he was forgetful, used to pass out in meetings and fall asleep on planes.

Brecka explained how he wrote a strict ketogenic diet for White, and told the UFC boss he couldn't eat anything not on the list.

He also balanced his hormones, controlled his glycaemic index and used amino acids to help reduce the triglycerides.

Brecka said: "In 10 weeks, lost 28 to 30lbs and he's over 40lbs now.

"By end of fifth month he was off every prescription medication.

"He is no longer is pre-diabetic, he has normal triglycerides and his kidney and liver function improved.

"He feels like a 35-year-old man again. His blood pressure has returned to normal and he's on no meds.

"He's almost tripled life expectancy – just under 30 years."
