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. And since the current study implicates cortisol, we can point the finger once again at (chronic) stress. While the current study mostly focused … Read more

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 has is a liver transplant. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/14139786/ … Read more

Glycine (and leucine) can treat fatty liver (NAFLD and NASH)

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 established a minimum daily dosage needed to … Read more

Blocking serotonin treats fatty liver disease (NAFLD / NASH)

The bad news for serotonin just keeps on coming. Just minutes ago I posted about serotonin turning people into violent criminals, and being the actual cause of depression instead of its cure (as FDA and Big Pharma would have you believe). Now, the study below adds another pathology that is caused by serotonin – the … Read more

Vitamin E can treat/cure severe fatty liver disease (NASH) in humans

As many of my readers know, currently there is an epidemic of the condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). By some estimates, more than 30% (100mil) of people living in the US have NAFLD and in about 25% of those the condition will progress to the more severe form known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis … Read more

America’s favorite oil causes diabetes, obesity, autism, and liver / brain disease

A series of shockingly direct studies that do not shy away from pointing the finger at the real villain in modern public health history – PUFA, and more specifically the “essential” linoleic acid (LA). As the studies demonstrate, soy oil has strikingly detrimental effects on metabolic health and the main culprit, at least as far … Read more

Daily aspirin reduces by 37% risk of fatty liver progressing into cirrhosis

Another great study about aspirin. What I particularly like about this study is that one of the authors is calling aspirin “a promising anti-fibrotic strategy for NAFLD”. This is the first time I have heard a doctor refer to aspirin as anti-fibrotic chemical. Peat mentioned aspirin as one of the most protective chemicals for liver … Read more

Keto diet (low-carb) causes liver insulin resistance, raises diabetes risk

Finally some common sense is coming out of mainstream medicine. As the study below aptly shows, eating low carb diets results in fatty liver and liver-specific insulin resistance, both of which are key components of diabetes II. In fact, the study says that eating a high-fat high-carb diet is LESS detrimental than eating high-fat, low-carb … Read more

Epidemic of NAFLD and NASH in young people

Yet another sad reminder of just how much the health of the average person has declined over the last 20 years. If these trends are not reversed or at least slowed down, we may start seeing people in their 20s filing for Medicare/Medicaid due to rapidly declining health and inability to cover their health expenses … Read more
