Does Lchf 'clear Out' Pancreatic Fat ?

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community / So what is the best way of clearing out the pancreatic fat ? LCHF is undoubtedly very effective at keeping blood sugar levels under control (few carbs ingested so little blood sugar response). It is also an eating regime that helps many to lose weight and maintain the weight loss. 1. Does eating LCHF help in reducing fat in the pancreas ? (apart from any effect of losing weight) 2. Does intermittent fasting help in reducing fat in the pancreas ? (I'm just trying to understand... not trying to be controversial) Art Of Flowers I reversed my Type 2 Well-Known Member Both LCHF and intermittent fasting help the body burn fat and lose weight and is very effective in bringing down high blood sugar levels. Fat around the liver is first to go and eventually fat around the pancreas is removed. I have lost 16 Kg using LCHF and intermittent fasting. Fasting help repair the body using a process called autophagy. Mbaker Type 2 (in remission!) Well-Known Member If you lose weight on LCHF or IF then the answer is yes, internal visceral fat goes before the on top layer subcutaneous fat. I love both and combine them. I also like Dr Fung and his directness, suits me to a T. a protean sparing fast is used to shrink the liver before bariatric surgery this in reality is lchf. it should do what you want it to do. if he is eight the numbr of type 2s that are remission because of it provesit must. I suspect that visceral fat deposits increase and decrease in different organs in slightly different ways, but I can't believe that they behave completely differently. its there as a regulator so i suspect trying to lose it all is perhaps not wise.

The Carb-sane Asylum: Bump: The Diabetes

The Carb-sane Asylum: Bump: The Diabetes "crash" Cure & Pancreatic Fat

Check Featured Comment (if any) for further updates from me. *In light of commentary below, I'll add that I am not a fan of using the term remission here. Cancer does seem to strike at random most times and recurrence seems to be equally random. At best we have few if any ways to predict who will see cancer return etc. But Type 2 diabetes doesn't work that way in most. The source of the beta cell dysfunction is pretty well known now, and that it IS reversible and can be restored is as well. An underlying genetic propensity towards T2 (e.g. weight distribution and having a low personal adipose storage threshold) is not the same as having an active disease or condition. There's considerable evidence that those whose diabetes resolved following gastric bypass do not see it return -- in other words they haven't worn out their pancreases and just kick the can of beta-cell exhaustion (a model that has been invalidated quite thoroughly at this point) down the road. In my opinion, diagnosis of T2 needs to be followed by a much more aggressive lifestyle change "prescription" than is currently given. Sadly, the medical establishment would rather add obesity to its lists of chronic, incurable lifelong diseases than adjust their model for existing disease that turns out to be curable after all. Today's 8/15/13 bump was inspired by a comment by Tsimblist (thanks!) alerting me to this paper: Type 2 Diabetes Etiology and reversibility Reversal of type 2 diabetes to normal metabolic control by either bariatric surgery or hypocaloric diet allows for the time sequence of underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms to be observed. In reverse order, the same mechanisms are likely to determine the events leading to the onset of hyperglycemia and permit insight into the etiology of type 2 diabet Continue reading >>

Do You Have A Fatty Liver? 90 Million Americans Do!

Do You Have A Fatty Liver? 90 Million Americans Do!

The most common disease in America is something you probably never heard of, but it affects 90 million Americans and is a major risk factor for diabetes, heart attacks, and even cancer. It is called NALFD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) or fatty liver, for short, and is caused by the 152 pounds of sugar and 146 pounds of flour in our diet. How do you know if you have it? What’s causing it? And how do you fix it? Do you exercise, take drugs, change your diet, or take supplements to fix it? Many of you are probably wondering, “What is a fatty liver?” Some of you may have heard of foie gras. Foie gras is the French term for fatty liver that is used to describe a delicacy made from duck or goose liver. What happens to the livers of these animals as a result of the controversial practice of overfeeding is what you could be doing to your own liver, unknowingly. For those people who have this disease, essentially what they have is a liver that is full of fat, and that is a major cause of chronic disease and inflammation in the body. How is it that we live in a country where fatty liver is the single most common disease, but most people have never even heard of it? 70 to 90 million Americans have a fatty liver and almost none of them know they have it. In fact, you might have it, as well, and not even know it. What causes it? In order to make foie gras, ducks or geese are force-fed sugar in the form of corn and starch—a sad practice. In the body, this sugar turns on a fat-production factory in the liver, a process known as lipogenesis, which is the body’s normal response to sugar. Fructose actually ramps up the lipogenesis response. The high fructose corn syrup found in our processed foods is the single biggest cause of fatty liver. Soda, which, frighteningly, is Continue reading >>

Remedies To Cleanse Your Pancreas What is the pancreas? The pancreas is a pear-shaped organ that is surrounded by the stomach, small intestine, liver, and spleen. The pancreas is essential for digesting carbohydrates and fats. It is responsible for producing enzymes. The pancreas produces digestive juices that help break the micronutrients and regulates levels of blood sugar. The Pancreas has two important functions The exocrine role of the pancreas produces digestive juice and enzymes that help to digest the proteins and fats.It also produces sodium bicarbonate that neutralizes the stomach acids. The pancreas has exocrine glands that produce enzymes which are essential for digestion. These enzymes are trypsin and chymotrypsin, these digests proteins available in the food; amylase helps in the digestion of carbohydrates, and lipase enzyme breaks down the fats. The pancreatic juices and bile that are released into the duodenum, which is the upper part of the small intestine, helps the body to digest fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Th Continue reading >>

The 'toxic Fat' That Can Strangle Your Organs And How To Shed It

The 'toxic Fat' That Can Strangle Your Organs And How To Shed It

The 'toxic fat' that can strangle your organs and how to shed it David Smith looked at the photo of himself holding his newborn daughter, Emma, and winced. The former rugby player had weighed in at a respectable 15st for his 6ft 2in frame, until a ruptured Achilles tendon had forced him to leave the Army. He'd since slowly piled on the pounds and now, 12 years later, weighed nearly 20st. 'I coped with problems in my life by eating too much, shovelling in ice-cream, stopping on the way home from work to have a Big Mac with extra chips before dinner,' says the civil servant, now 38. 'All I could see in that photo was a man with a face and a body not so much to die for, as looking frankly dangerous. 'My immediate thought was that when Emma's ten, I'll be nearly 50 and seriously ill - and that's if I survive that long.' Before and after: Scans of George Eastcote, who shed about 13% of his body weight and 34% of visceral fat Just months later, David talks of his feelings about fatherhood with a new, glowing optimism. Last October he embarked on a 12-week exercise and diet regime. To the casual observer the results have been impressive, although not dramatic - he's lost under two stone and trimmed four inches off his waist. Although his Body Mass Index fell four points from 36 to 32, he is still officially 'obese'. But David is convinced that his health has improved out of all proportion to his weight loss. 'I feel so much more energetic and my happiness levels are going through the roof.' What's more, these subjective feelings are borne out by scientific evidence using state-oftheart MRI scans - the cause of his newfound energy and improved mood literally caught on camera. What these scans reveal is the astonishing amount of visceral fat David has shed. 'Along with killing Continue reading >>

Uk Doc: Type 2 Often Curable

Uk Doc: Type 2 Often Curable

According to Dr. Roy Taylor of the United Kingdom’s University of Newcastle, we need to change our understanding of what causes Type 2 diabetes. Then we can treat it and reverse it. What is this new understanding? Dr. Taylor made headlines in 2011 when his team “reversed” Type 2 diabetes in 11 people by putting them on a 600-calorie-a-day diet. His subjects achieved normal glucose levels within a week. That’s not so amazing. If you don’t eat, your glucose numbers will of course come down. But by the end of the eight-week study, most of them achieved normal numbers on a glucose tolerance test, which is much harder to do. It shows their insulin response had returned. “Their first phase insulin response increased gradually over 8 weeks of a very-low-calorie diet,” Dr. Taylor reports. It became “indistinguishable from that of age- and weight-matched nondiabetic control subjects.” In his new paper, called “Type 2 Diabetes: Etiology and Reversibility,” Dr. Taylor describes how that recovery happened. He used new kinds of MRIs to look at what was actually happening to people’s liver and pancreas. By seeing how liver and pancreas change as they get better, he says we can understand how diabetes develops in the first place. What he found is that fat in the liver and pancreas seems to cause all the problems. High fat levels cause the liver to become insulin resistant. So it starts pumping out unneeded glucose (the process the drug metformin tries to stop). As a fatty liver makes glucose levels rise, bad cholesterol levels also rise, which leads to a fatty pancreas. Fat in the pancreas blocks insulin signaling and production. Voilá! You have diabetes. This story is a change from our old understanding. The classic story of Type 2 is that insulin resistanc Continue reading >>

Pancreatic Cysts: Symptoms, Causes & Management

Pancreatic Cysts: Symptoms, Causes & Management

What is the treatment for pancreatic cysts? The pancreas is an organ approximately six inches long that is located in the abdomen behind the stomach and in front of the spine and aorta . The pancreas is divided into three regions: the head, the body, and the tail. The head of the pancreas is located on the right side of the abdomen adjacent to the duodenum. The tail is on the left side of the abdomen, and the body lies between the head and the tail. There are two functional parts to the pancreas, referred to as the exocrine and endocrine parts. The majority of the cells of the pancreas produce digestive juices which contain the enzymes necessary for digesting food in the intestine. The enzymes are secreted into smaller collecting ducts within the pancreas (side branches). The side branches empty into a larger duct, the main pancreatic duct, which empties into the intestine through the papilla of Vater in the duodenum. During passage through the ducts, bicarbonate is added to the digestive enzymes to make the pancreatic secretion alkaline. The cells and ducts producing the digestive juices comprise the exocrine part of the pancreas. Just before the main pancreatic duct enters the duodenum, it usually merges with the common bile duct that collects bile (a fluid that helps to digest fat) produced by the liver . The common bile duct usually joins the pancreatic duct in the head of the pancreas. The union of these two ducts forms the ampulla of Vater which drains both the bile and pancreatic fluid into the duodenum through the papilla of Vater. Buried within the tissue of the pancreas, primarily in the head, are small collections of cells, termed the Islets of Langerhans. The cells of the Islets produce several hormones, for example, insulin , glucagon, and somatostatin; th Continue reading >>

Pancreatic Pseudocyst

Pancreatic Pseudocyst

A pancreatic pseudocyst is a collection of tissue and fluids that forms on an organ located behind your stomach called the pancreas. Its usually the result of a hard blow to your abdomen or pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas. Pseudo means false. A pseudocyst looks like a cyst but is made from different kinds of tissue than a true cyst. A true cyst is more likely to be cancerous than a pseudocyst. A pancreatic pseudocyst isnt usually dangerous unless it ruptures. A ruptured pancreatic pseudocyst is a life-threatening condition. See your doctor immediately if you have any of the following symptoms: You should pay even closer attention to these symptoms if you or anyone in your family has had pancreatitis. Pancreatic pseudocysts most often follow a bout of pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is a serious and painful condition. Pancreatic enzymes, which help you digest fats and sugars, overreact and begin to digest the tissues of the pancreas itself. This can cause swelling, bleeding, and damage to the tissues and blood vessels in the pancreas. Cysts typically form when the ducts that carry pancreatic juices to the intestine become blocked. Pancreatitis can be either acute or chronic. Acute pancreatitis starts suddenly, and it can go away with or without treatment. Chronic pancreatitis resists treatment. While pancreatitis may be a complication of surgery or due to certain autoimmune disorders, alcoholism is the most common cause of both acute and chronic pancreatitis. Additionally, alcoholism can raise the level of certain fats, or triglycerides, in your bloodstream. Your pancreas helps your body digest fats, but having too much fat to process can damage it. Pancreatitis can also be due to gallstones. These are pebble-like deposits that develop in the gallbladd Continue reading >>

Pamper Your Pancreas To Lose Weight

Pamper Your Pancreas To Lose Weight

Easy Health Options Home Health Conditions Diabetes Pamper Your Pancreas To Lose Weight You need to ease the job of the pancreas if you want to keep your weight down. Cut back on sugary, processed snack foods. Select supplements that assist the pancreas in its digestive duties. Otherwise, your waistline will grow and your health will decline. The pancreas makes insulin, a hormone that controls how your body uses and stores sugar. Excess sugar is stored by the body in the liver and muscles as glycogen. But if the glycogen is not used for energy needs, it is soon converted to body fat. When your blood sugar levels stay high and the pancreas churns out insulin at a furious pace, your body runs the serious risk of creating the fixed fat deposits that make you obese. This buildup of body fat may take place before or after metabolic abnormalities arise that lead to type 2 diabetes or leave you mired in the more common condition known as metabolic syndrome . How do these changes take place? Well, one way is when insulin cannot effectively function at the cell membrane receptors and glucose (blood sugar) cannot be brought into cells, a situation known as insulin resistance . At the same time, the pancreas may be overproducing insulin to compensate for this resistance. All this is a function of what you eat and how rapidly you eat. For example, eating foods high in refined sugar causes insulin to surge in order to allow sugar to enter the cells that need it. However, this repeated pattern of constantly eating refined sugar encourages oversecretion of insulin chronically to the point that cells become more likely to resist its influence. If you think you have this problem, consider having a fasting blood sugar or a hemoglobin A1C test which determines blood sugar balance over th Continue reading >>

Reducing Diabetes By Reducing Fat From The Pancreas

Reducing Diabetes By Reducing Fat From The Pancreas

Study finds insulin secretion returns to normal with one-gram fat loss. Diabetes affects millions of people in the world. It is a chronic disease that does not go away, even with treatment. Most diabetic patients are insulin resistant, and the beta cells cannot produce enough extra insulin. Currently, more than 44 million Americans are considered to be obese, and excess body fat contributes to insulin resistance, which increases the risk of diabetes. Weight loss is considered the best way to improve the body’s ability to use insulin. Because of insulin resistance and pancreatic beta cell failure in type 2 diabetes, the current treatment options of T2M are aimed at increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing blood glucose levels. A new study published in Diabetes Care by a team from Newcastle University, UK, found losing less than one gram of fat that is accumulating in the pancreas can reverse diabetes. It means blood glucose levels may go back to normal range if people lose their weight. Professor Roy Taylor, who was the leader of this research, presented these findings at the World Diabetes Conference in Vancouver. This study examined 18 patients with type 2 diabetes or normal glucose tolerance who were listed for gastric bypass before and 8 weeks after surgery, and patients were matched for age, weight, and sex. Patients were put on a restricted diet for eight weeks, and then researchers measured their hepatic insulin sensitivity, the first-phase insulin response to a stepped intravenous glucose infusion, and glycemic and incretin responses to a semisolid meal. During the trial, 9 patients between the ages of 25 and 65 who had diabetes showed high levels of fat in their pancreas. After the surgery, those with type 2 diabetes were taken off their medications. The re Continue reading >>

Fat Loss From Pancreas 'can Reverse' Effects Of Type-2 Diabetes

Type-2 diabetes affects nearly 3 million people in Britain ( ) Fat loss from pancreas 'can reverse' effects of type-2 diabetes 'If this special pool of fat is removed then the pancreas can become able to make insulin normally, and sugar control returns to normal' Less than half a teaspoon of fat is all that it takes to turn someone into a type-2 diabetic according to a study that could overturn conventional wisdom on a disease affecting nearly 3 million people in Britain. Researchers have found it is not so much the overall body fat that is important in determining the onset of type-2 diabetes but the small amount of fat deposited in the pancreas, the endocrine organ responsible for insulin production. Read moreHow being diagnosed with diabetes changed my life A clinical trial on 18 patients with type-2 diabetes has found that the loss of just one gram of fat from the pancreas can reverse the disease to the point where patients were once more are able to control levels of sugar in the bloodstream using their own insulin. Diabetes comes in two forms. The type-2 version affects about 90 per cent of the diabetic population and this is the disease associated with diet and obesity in adults. It occurs as a result of the failure of the bodys insulin hormone to control blood-sugar levels by the pancreas not producing enough insulin, and the body becoming resistant to its own hormone. If fat in the pancreas really is the key factor that triggers type-2 diabetes, it offers a potential target for reversing the disease through drugs. However, at present the only way of lowering fat levels in the pancreas is to go on a strict diet that lowers fat elsewhere in the body a weight-loss procedure that is notoriously difficult to maintain. Another problem is how we define pancreatic fat Continue reading >>

The problem with diabetes involves insulin and leptin, which has nothing to do with the stomach the by passed procedure was performed on What the studies found was that the pancreas was restricted from producing the proper amount of insulin because of the fat deposit that was formed around the the pancreas The fatty deposits restricts the pancreas from producing the proper amounts of insulin If you remove the fatty deposits in the liver and around the pancreas then your diabetes is cured WOW!The crazy thing about this is most doctors are aware of this And they only give you medicine to control the Diabetes, but not cure it Pharmaceutical companies are making a killing from producing these medicine and they don't want to cure the problem because that would be billions of dollars they will miss out on if they didBut thats not the point...

Removing Extra Fat From Pancreas May Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Removing Extra Fat From Pancreas May Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Removing Extra Fat From Pancreas May Reverse Type 2 Diabetes 5 December 2015, 8:26 am EST By Angela Laguipo Tech Times Those who are suffering from type 2 diabetes could be cured only if they lose weight, a new study says. Researchers found that fat accumulation in the pancreas is likely the cause of this debilitating disease and losing less than one gram of fat through weight loss can reverse the condition. The researchers from Newcastle University in the United Kingdom led by Professor Roy Taylor, found that obese people who were diagnosed with diabetes can reverse the chronic disease by losing weight. Thus, the presence of diabetes is not relative to overall body fat, but instead, the small amount of fat accumulated in the pancreas that hinders the production of insulin. Diabetes is a long-lasting and chronic disease characterized by increased glucose levels in the blood. The cause of this disease is linked to the impeded production of insulin, an enzyme responsible in carrying glucose to the different cells of the body. In fact, more than 347 million people worldwide have diabetes. By 2030, it is predicted that diabetes will become the seventh leading cause of death in the world. Though there are two types of diabetes, type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 percent of all cases. To land on their findings, published in the journal Diabetes Care, the researchers performed a clinical trial on 18 patients with type 2 diabetes and nine people who did not have the disease that were scheduled for bariatric surgery. Their weight, fat levels in the pancreas and insulin response were recorded before and eight weeks after the surgery. The patients with type 2 diabetes were found to have increased levels of fat in the pancreas compared to those without the disease. After the operatio Continue reading >>
