    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...

    Low Dopamine D2 receptor density leads to obesity and insulin resistance , D2 agonism may treat

    These studies show that the Dopmine D2 receptors are strongly involved in obesity and insulin resistance . 1. (Brain dopamine and obesity - PubMed) "Striatal dopamine D2 receptor availability was significantly lower in the ten obese individuals (2.47 [SD 0.36]) than in controls (2.99 [0.41]...

    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...

    PUFA May Drive Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Liver Issues In Diabetes II Patients

    Yet another study where the message is clear - there is nothing "essential" about the PUFA we are bombarded with from all directions be that diet, medical interventions, household products, etc. What makes this study particularly relevant is that PUFA ingestion actually is promoted as one of the...

    Gut Protocol For Insulin Resistance, Metabolism, And Energy

    I wanted to share this amazing gut protocol that I have been on for the last few months (results below) I am in a unique position as a type 1 diabetic in that my pancreas produces little to no insulin on its own. This gives me an insight into what supplements and herbs do to insulin needs in...

    Vitamin D Reduces Blood Sugar And Body Fat In Obese Women

    A neat study, albeit lasting much longer (about 1.5 years) than most other intervention studied with vitamin D. What makes this study particularly interesting is that it only used high doses vitamin D (60,000 IU once weekly) initially until blood levels rose into the normal range. It did not...

    Vitamin D Strikingly Therapeutic For Type II Diabetes

    Despite the ongoing assault against "ineffective" dietary supplements, the evidence in favor of them keeps piling on. One of the favorite targets of mainstream media is vitamin D, and multiple claims of "ineffectiveness" based on "meta" studies have come out in the last 5 years. Usually, this is...

    Burning More Fat And Less Glucose Leads To Diabetes

    I really hope the keto community and other low-carb diet afficionados are taking note of the stream of recent studies that keep demonstrating a causative link between low-carb and/or high-fat diets, fasting, chronic stress, cortisol and diabetes. The evidence at this point is indisputable, no...

    Serotonin (due To Bacteria) Is The Master Regulator Of Metabolism, Insulin Sensitivity, And Weig

    Over the last year I posted a number of studies demonstrating strong link between serotonin and chronic conditions such as obesity, insulin resistance, and even diabetes. Augmented capacity for peripheral serotonin release in human obesity...

    MS Tied To Glucose Deficiency Due To Endotoxin And Fat, Extra Glucose May Treat It

    Just a few days ago I posted the groundbreaking study on metabolic derangement in ALS - i.e. it is a diseased characterized by increased FAO, which wastes glucose. Simply increasing dietary glucose was able to greatly restrain the pathology...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Cause Heart Failure

    As many readers know, there is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. It is of worldwide proportions, but is visible mainly in "developed" countries in the Western world. The official stance of mainstream medicine is that while vitamin D deficiency is undesirable, it does not really have much...

    Fibromyalgia May Be Simply A Sign Of Insulin Resistance

    As many of your have seen on TV, there is currently a boom in ads for drigs to treat fibromyalgia. This condition is yet another one of mysterious origins, at least according to mainstream medicine. The treatment consists mainly of GABA agonists like Lyrica but the official version is (of...

    Protocol For Curing Type 2 Diabetes, Anyone?

    Has anyone here ever attempted to cure type 2 diabetes successfully? A friend just started diabetes medication, and in a party we were in, he passed out because the medication made his blood sugar go way low. I told him I'll see if I can provide a method where he can get his condition cured...

    Endotoxin Causes (liver) Steatosis, Insulin Resistance And Atherosclerosis

    I know this study was in hepatitis C patients only, but there is nothing about Hep C that would invalidate this finding in the general population too. Quite a few people on the forum reported that when they tried to talk to their doctor about endotoxin and its possible role in their health...

    Sterilizing The Gut Restores Insulin Sensitivity By Reducing Fatty Acid Oxidation

    I am posting this study just as an example of how important the role of endotoxin is in insulin resistance and diabetes. Similarly to the human study with aspirin, sterilizing the gut with antibiotics did not reduce the weight in the obese subjects (in this case mice). So, obesity may be a less...

    Elevated PUFA In Blood Drive Metabolic Syndrome And Diabetes

    Some good evidence on the role of PUFA and inflammation in obesity and diabetes. The findings that FFA are elevated in obese people is not surprising and even mainstream medicine has wisened up to that fact. The surprising (for the authors) part was that unsaturated fats were involved in the...

    Fats Cause Cause Cognitive Impairment And Insulin Resistance In The Brain

    The topic of whether fats cross the BBB is very controversial, especially in light of recent evidence that dementias like Alzheimer are simply so-called "diabetes of the brain". It is well-known in clinical circles that fats do cause insulin resistance, but the PUFA lobby is powerful enough to...

    Serotonin Causes Obesity And Diabetes In Humans

    This study is presented as groundbreaking and unexpected but in fact big pharma has been quietly working on anti-serotonin therapy for obesity/diabetes for more than a decade. I think the importance of this study is the admission that serotonin causes obesity/diabetes in humans, as one of the...

    Estrogen+PUFA Esters May Drive Obesity; Most Doctors Have Not Even Heard Of Them

    An unassailable dogma in endocrinology is that menopause is characterized by low estrogen levels. The fact that plasma levels are only indicative of ovarian activity is conveniently overlooked, as is the fact that fat tissue grows after menopause and fat is the primary source of estrone (estrone...
