I was just reading this thing on Bowtrol. It's a colon cleansing therapy, perhaps look into that? I'm gonna in the next little while.

When you say your thyroid is okay..
what is your TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 at?
Is your diet helping yet? Fiber + water seem to be what helps the most for me.

free T3 was 5.8 (2-6 i think)
free t4?? doc didnt give me it
high fat diet, my guts are pretty bloody good..or lack of carbs...no bloat, or gas!!

ever thought you might have a gluten insensitivity...and thus the keto or no carbs is just feeling better because you are getting rid of a trigger.
a lot of people with hormonal issues, or immune problems as well as constipation/diarhea do better without gluten, even if your not full blown celiac disease.

I'm also not sure about fat binding with minerals. I've only ever heard of phytic acid (again in carbohydrate-laden grains) binding with minerals like magnesium and zinc. Support?

That being said, I read that study as supporting exactly what I'm saying.
"Therefore, in skeletal muscle of rats, 1) feeding a diet high in fat induces a reduction in insulin-stimulated glucose uptake but 2) provides an increase in basal glucose uptake."
So glucose uptake into skeletal muscle increased, but insulin-dependent glucose uptake decreased in the high-fat diet. This means that more glucose found its way into the muscles but that less insulin was needed to get it there. In other words, insulin sensitivity increased. We'd expect the exact opposite if the high-fat diet increased insulin resistance (i.e., less glucose in muscle and more insulin needed to get in there).
Other pertinent statements:
"2-deoxyglucose uptake in HF-mixed-fed rats did not differ from that in HCHO-fed rats (P > 0.05)."
"Glucose tolerance was significantly reduced in HF-saff-fed rats but was unaffected by the HF-mixed diet."
"Insulin-stimulated 3-O-methylglucose uptake into perfused hindlimb muscles was reduced in rats fed HF-saff and HF-mixed diets compared with those fed HCHO diet (P < 0.02)."
Again, it looks like the same amount of glucose found its way into muscles in the mixed high-fat diet, but that less insulin was needed to get it there. This does not, in my mind, spell "insuling resistance." This strikes me as the ideal situation: Plenty of glucose in the muscles, but little insulin output. Sign me up!

Cellular resistance is caused by too much of something that results in dulling the receptors over time.

I think cordyceps is supposed to be bad for candida. would anyone advise a 3 day, low carb diet with lotsw of cordyceps and healthy vegetables?
