• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    DHT Lowers Risk Of Diabetes In Older Males

    Most endocrinologists view DHT as an almost exclusively bad hormone. Aside from the its much publicized (and likely incorrect) role in prostate cancer and MPB, endocrinologists consider DHT as a causative agent in insulin resistance and even diabetes type II. Most of that misguided opinion...

    Androsterone - A Potential Treatment For Insulin Resistance And Diabetes

    In another recent thread, I posted about androsterone's potent thyromimetic effects. Given the ability of thyroid hormone to improve insulin sensitivity and even reverse diabetes type II, it would not be surprising that androsterone would also exhibit such effects. And indeed, androsterone...

    Victoza And Glp-1

    This may be a long shot. I have a friend who recently started taking Victoza which is used to treat type 2 diabetes. I have been looking for studies and information on GLP-1 without much luck. From some of the reviews I have read from people, it seems to be positively received, but I believe...

    Selenium Supplementation Increases Insulin Sensitivity -- New (2016) Study Reveals

    I remember seeing from the forum that Ray Peat thinks the amount of selenium in commercial farmed seafood is low and it would be wise to supplement it in the diet. In one of his articles, he mentioned selenium along with other nutrients (K2, thiamine, niacinamide etc.,) to be good for...

    Even Intermittent Fasting Reduces Insulin Sensitivity (in The Obese)

    The study was in diabetic patients (Type II) so probably does not apply to all healthy people. However, it is still pretty telling that skipping only breakfast has such a potent and long lasting (post- lunch and dinner) effect on insulin sensitivity. http://care.diabetesjournals.org/conten ...

    Niacinamide For Type II Diabetes

    Ray has written about trials with niacinamide showing remission of even some type I diabetes cases. This study compared niacin to niacinamide for type II diabetes, and found niacinamide to be superior most likely due to stronger effect on mitochondrial biogenesis. Human dose equivalent would be...

    Coffee Helps Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

    Not sure if this ties with Ray's true causes of diabetes type 2 ( he doesn't see the pancreas as a culprit) but it does add to the already known qualities of coffee. From Sepp Hasselberger's blog http://www.scoop.it/t/health-supreme?page=44
