    Estrogen Can Both Cause And Exacerbate Lupus

    A quick post as a response to a recent argument I had over email with an endocrinologist who follows me on Twitter. His claim was that the causes of Lupus are currently unknown but are likely "multifactorial" and me ascribing such causes to "isolated peculiarities" such as endotoxin (LPS) or...

    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...

    Increased Fat Oxidation Is The Cause Of Kidney Damage

    At least in diabetes, according to the study below. Peat mentioned in several of his articles and interviews that the kidney damage so commonly seen in both type I and II diabetes patients is due to increased PUFA oxidation and decreased glucose oxidation. He also said that the same mechanism...

    Niacinamide May Treat (acute) Kidney Failure (AKI) - Human Study

    It seems modern medicine is slowly starting to recognize the role of energy in organ health, and more specifically the role of NAD/NADH ratio in variety of diseases long thought to be mostly mechanism in origin. A few months ago, I posted a study on raising NAD levels with nicotinamide riboside...

    Itching: Is It Your Kidneys?

    Peat said that too little calcium and vitamin D and too much phosphate lead to kidney degeneration, and supplementing those "in many cases will correct the whatever the liver and kidney problem is." [source] I found a couple of studies that link itching (and a couple of other skin and nail...

    Low-dose Emodin Can Change Gut Microbiome And Alleviate Kidney DiseaseHere We Utilized A Rat CKD Mod

    As most people here know Ray is not in favor of "probiotics" supplements, with the possible exception of BioSporin. This study found that an enema with low-dose emodin changed the microbiome in a way that eliminated uremic toxins in a model of kidney disease and also alleviated the pathology of...

    Anti-acid (PPI) Drugs Commonly Used For GERD Lead To Kidney Failure

    I have long suspected that PPI drugs are very dangerous based on my observations of friends having bone problems and fractures typically seen in people 30-40 years older. The PPI drugs affect calcium and magnesium metabolism in ways that are just beginning to be elucidated and prescribing them...

    Heartburn Drugs (ppi) Linked To Chronic Kidney Disease

    This study follows the previous once implicating PPI drugs like Nezium and Prevacid in bone fractures, pneumonia, and bacterial infections. Typically, chronic kidney disease is something only people with diabetes and very old people have to be concerned about, however as you can see taking a PPI...

    Colas Associated With Increased Risk of Kidney Disease

    Drinking 2 or more colas per day was associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Results were the same for regular colas and artificially sweetened colas . Noncola carbonated beverages were not associated with chronic kidney disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3433753/
