    Iron supplementation may not cure anemia, unless nutrition is also improved

    As many of my readers know, Peat is against supplementing with isolated iron. Aside from the well-known toxicity risks (e.g. liver damage) multiple studies have shown that in a good portion of the people treated with oral iron supplements, anemia either does not resolve or rapidly returns upon...

    I Have a Liver Hemoangioma

    Just went for my yearly health checkup. The abdominal ultrasound found a growth on my liver, 11-13 mm in size, which they say is a hemoangioma (benign tumor which causes a cluster of blood vessels to form). This was not present on the same scan last year, so it developed quickly and recently...

    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.

    Liver Flush: My Experience & Addressing Skeptics

    I am a believer in this and it's not hard to find positive testimonies of its benefits (ie on facebook groups). However, if you research it, you will get lots of skepticism.

    Oral testosterone + vitamin E may treat NAFLD, NASH, cirrhosis in humans

    Several years ago, I posted a few studies from the 1970s demonstrating very high cure rates of advanced cirrhosis in humans with a combination treatment of testosterone (T) and vitamin B1 (thiamine). Not bad for a condition modern medicine tells us is incurable and the only option the patient...

    Huge step in gallbladder function w/ TUDCA - now what?

    Hey everyone, So I think I'll consider this an update to my last major post: Please Help: Endotoxin Overload & Post-parasite Gut Disaster . In this post, I described my persistent and near-debilitating gut issues. I long suspected the issue was rooted in some kind of dysbiosis / SIBO issue. I...

    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...

    Vitamin D is anti-catabolic / anabolic, protects liver from cortisol injury

    In a recent post of mine I discussed the effects of cortisol on various aminotransferases (especially TAT), their role as biomarkers of catabolism, and how inhibitors of said aminotransferases have a potent anti-catabolic / anabolic effects. In that same post, I also described how cortisol (a...

    Is it normal to get very pale stools from drinking lots of milk?

    I have consumed dairy regularly over the years, so it is nothing new for my body, but I never thought to ask if the pale stools were normal. I just assumed that it was, but so much is off about my digestion, so I figured I'd come here to ask. I get VERY pale stools from milk (whole or skim)...

    Eating Liver Causing Allergic Reaction?

    For some reason whenever I take liver capsules I get an allergic like reaction in the form of excess saliva build up. It is really debilitating. The liver capsules themselves do not cause a reaction but for some reason whenever I eat anything for the rest of the day I'm coughing and clearing...

Namely, alcohol-related morbidity and mortality. Those have always been an issue in any developed country but since the...
