    Aspirin may treat pancreatitis...and other fibrotic conditions

    While most of medicine's attention is focused on acute pancreatitis (AP) since AP is often deadly, rates of chronic pancreatitis (CP) have been rising over the last 2-3 decades and it is now recognized that CP is a "gateway" condition to either liver or pancreatic cancers. Officially, CP has no...

    PUFA metabolites may trigger diabetes type I

    Type I diabetes is known as an autoimmune condition. Namely, for some "unknown" reason(s) the beta-cells of the pancreas get attacked by the immune system and over time this leads to their destruction and inability to produce insulin. Of course, no such thing as an "autoimmune" disease exists...

    DHT can stop aging of the pancreatic beta-cells (insulin-producing)

    Another great study, which demonstrates that far from being a "villain" (in both males and females) DHT is in fact a crucial and positive factor in health. In this specific study below, it was demonstrated that DHT dose-dependently inhibited the aging/dysfunction of the pancreatic beta-cells...

    Pancreatitis — Possibly Caused By Viral Infection?

    I’m had a bad flu and then developed symptoms of Pancreatitis which I am now diagnosed. Has anyone had success in reversing pancreatitis? Would the approach be the same if it started from a viral infection?

    What's The Latest Thinking On Beef *Organ* Supplements?

    I couldn't find any info in my quick searching on "beef organs". There are a number of vendors selling beef organ supplements bother here and online that tout health benefits. Here's a listing of one such supplement's ingredients: Brain (Bovine) Approximately 65mg Heart (Bovine) Approximately...

    Blocking Endotoxin (LPS) May Reverse/cure Diabetes Type I

    Yet another study demonstrating the key role of endotoxin in the pathology of perhaps the most widespread chronic disease - diabetes. The study below discovered that the proliferation of the insulin-producing beta-cells in the pancreas is controlled almost entirely by the TLR4/TLR2 receptor...

    Pancreatic Cancer Driven By Bacteria/endotoxin; Antibiotics Can Prevent/treat

    I just posted a seminal study showing that possibly ALL autoimmune conditions may be caused by a chronic low-grade infection. This infection stems from a gut bacteria, which has translocated from the gut to the liver/lymphs due to compromised gut barrier and lingers there chronically thus...

    Anti-adrenaline Drugs Like Clonidine May Prevent Diabetes Type I

    Peat mentioned a few times that the pancreatic damage seen in type I diabetes is caused by prolonged exposure to PUFA, as unsaturated fats are toxic to the insulin-producing beta cells in that organ. Many of the cases of new onset diabetes I occur after a period of extreme exhaustion and/or...

    Ketotifen Can Reverse Pancreatic Damage And Improve Digestion

    Many people on the forum have reported struggling with poor digestion, and some have experienced relief by taking digestive enzymes. Peat and many other researchers have written about the connection between poor digestion and virtually all chronic conditions. The pancreas can get damaged by a...

    Thyroid Hormone In Babies Controls Pancreas Development And Diabetes Risk

    It has been know for years that maternal or fetal hypothyroidism increases the risk of dementia later in life. This new study makes the connection between thyroid hormone levels and subsequent risk of diabetes. While this is the first study of its kind it points strongly at fetal/child...

    Pregnenolone For Blood Sugar Control

    It was recently discovered that the so-called TRM3 "receptors" in the pancreatic beta cells can be activated by pregnenolone sulfate (PS) at relatively low concentrations and result in insulin release. This makes pregnenolone a potential tool for keeping blood sugar levels normal and can also...

    Blood Sugar Is Controlled Mostly By The Brain, Not Pancreas

    Ray wrote in one of his articles that pancreatic insulin is responsible for no more than 20% of glycemic control. While he mentioned potassium as the major factor, he also said that it is the brain that ultimately controls the levels of sugar in the blood. This study from Yale seems to confirm...
