    Endotoxin (LPS) as a cause of liver disease, obesity and diabetes

    The first article below is actually about praising fermented foods, which I don't really agree with. So, I am posting it mostly because of the quote on endotoxin/LPS, which is a very rare finding in published medical literature since medicine does not recognize chronic, low-grade endotoxemia as...

    Cortisol causes fatty liver (as well as obesity, diabetes, etc)

    Not really a surprise for most of my readers, but it is always nice to see more evidence establishing various disorders attributed to "gluttony", "weak will", "addiction", etc as actual endocrine disturbances. And since the current study implicates cortisol, we can point the finger once again at...

    Niacinamide dosing for diabetes

    Hello all. My mother has borderline diabetes. Have heard that niacinamide can help lower blood sugar. Does anybody have any sources or experience indicating what dosages she should try for desired effect? I am also having her try using fructose as well as getting ketamine treatment since Peat...

    DHT better (and safer) than testosterone for improving blood pressure, insulin levels

    A great human study on the beneficial effects of androgens for a variety of metabolic biomarkers associated with insulin resistance and diabetes II. The only gripe I have with this study is that they claim it was conducted with "healthy" men when in reality all men had low plasma total...

    Even mainstream medicine admits many claims about sugar are myths

    It is always nice to see when a outpost of mainstream medicine tries to set the record straight on something as controversial as refined sugar. My personal favorites are the myths on sugar and causal links to diabetes / cancer. Apparently, there is solid evidence those links are myths. Yet...

    Stress (cortisol) as the driver of hyperglycemia in type II diabetes

    To most of my readers, the title of the post may seem like something completely obvious and not deserving explanation of clarification. However, according to mainstream medicine (until now, at least) cortisol does not really have a causative role either in the development of diabetes type II or...

    Reversing type 2 diabetes Ted Talk

    This video kinda blew my mind as it flies in the face of so much of Peat's advice...yet the data seems compelling. Can anybody reconcile this doctors results and data with Ray's? My mom currently has type 2 diabetes and just wants to know if she can eat potatoes or not!!!! lol.

    Glycine (and leucine) can treat fatty liver (NAFLD and NASH)

    A great new study that demonstrates the strong protective effects of glycine, alone or in combination with leucine, on preventing/treating various forms of fatty liver disease, as well as the obesity that often accompanies these conditions. One of the strong points of the study is that it also...

    Fasting ups estrogen & cortisol, decimates vitamin D, may cause diabetes

    A really interesting study, which will likely generate more than a few hateful emails for my Inbox :): Anyways, as the study demonstrates, fasting achieves these negative effects due to the elevated fatty acids working through PPAR activator PGC-1α, to activate both the estrogen receptor (ER)...

    Dietary PUFA In Childhood Causes Diabetes And Irreversible (male) Infertility

    A great study, which corroborates the discussion in another recent post of mine on PUFA's role in infertility and insulin-resistance / diabetes. However, the study below found that the infertility caused by dietary PUFA exposure were NOT reversible upon discontinuation of the high-fat (both PUFA...

    Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) + DHT Combo May Reverse Kidney Disease (CKD)

    A truly great study for a number of reasons. First, it cites extensive evidence that male patients with diabetes (both types) have low androgens and high estrogen (estradiol). The association between this endocrine abnormality and the severity of diabetes is apparently quite strong, yet it is...

    The One Gut Bacterium You Have To Boost (and Here’s How)

    There is so much controversy over gut bacteria and if we should lower it or boost it or try to modulate it. Well, we have a gut microbiota whether we like it not, so we have to make the best of it. Lowering gut bacteria with antibiotics can be very helpful, but is rarely a long term solution...

    Statins May Cause Insulin Resistance By Depleting Vitamin K

    A great study, which both highlights the dangers of statins while also providing a plausible mechanism for those side effects that both FDA and Big Pharma vehemently continue to dispute. This plausible mechanism involves the inhibition of vitamin K2 (MK-4) synthesis, which requires the same...

    High-carb (65%-85%) Diets Therapeutic In Diabetes

    Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the "sugar disease" may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting. Perhaps the only thing still preventing it from collapsing overnight is the large numbers of Paleo-diet supporters...

    PUFA Makes Girls Fat / Lazy / Diabetic And Exercise Futile

    Just a few minutes ago I made a post about PUFA (from nuts) increasing risk of diabetes. I just came across another very similar study below. It found that PUFA consumption, in both mice and humans, makes them fat and highly sedentary while also increasing their diabetes risk. MUFA and SFA had...

    Nut (PUFA) Consumption May Cause Diabetes Even Without Obesity

    Such are the findings of this intriguing study, and I suspect the authors probably "massaged" the data a bit in order to avoid getting their study rejected by the peer-review committee. Cases of diabetes II without the presence of obesity are extremely rare, so the finding that nut consumption...
