You got a great answer from paleoDoc. Pls update with what you found out from your doc. My only question is that you said you have pain in the "right abdomen again." Is it pain in the same area, upper right? Or is in on the right side, but... (more)

For a long time (years, since I was a kid) I'd get heartburn. I don't know how long I've had the muscle aches, but at least in the past couple of years the heartburn was accompanied by muscle aches and the only thing that would help the muscle... (more)

I used to have the same issue and determined that it was definitely predominantly the result of grains, specifically wheat. Like clockwork, every time I have a little grain fest, there it is.

I've gained 12 lbs in the past 6 weeks since I've been staying with a friend and I can't cook. We pick up food and while I generally try to stay pretty paleo (I've been eating low-carb/paleo for the better part of 3 years) all the additives etc... (more)

I lost weight with Atkins well before I discovered paleo. I gained 20 lbs back with paleo as muscle while still losing clothes size. Clothes size is far more important than LBS. I don't think Paleo is a weight lost diet ( Low carb is) Paleo is a... (more)

I was pitching the Paleo lifestyle to a friend, and he mentioned that he had a 'fatty liver' according to the doctor's diagnosis. He is trying to lose some pounds, hence the pitch. He has been getting close to Paleo (without knowing) before we... (more)

The paleo diet will almost certainly help reverse fatty liver. The best strategy for doing this is reducing intake of sugar (especially fructose), alcohol, and vegetable oils, while increasing the intake of choline. Choline is the limiting factor... (more)

Interesting article by Chris Masterjohn: http://blog.cholesterol-and-health.com/2010/11/sweet-truth-about-liver-and-egg-yolks.html If I am getting this right, he is saying that fatty liver is not directly caused by too much sugar, alcohol, or fat... (more)

How is your diet in relation to fructose. I've heard somewhere about a correlation between fructose and NAFLD, especially since it's metabolized in the liver and is mostly turned into triglycerides. I've found a lot of articles about the... (more)

I started Paleo a year ago. It fixed a gazillion of health problems for me. But the few remaining problems, while I know how to fix them, they contradict one another. I'm at a loss. Here are the facts: IBS for 10 years, high inflammation all... (more)

I concur re: malabsoprtion. Also your sleep cycle is really key. Your D3 is still quite low. Optimal is 50-60 ng/ml and if you have any inflammatory condition, 60-80 ng/ml helps a lot. It may also help your sleep cycle/timing to regulate. ... (more)

Usually fatty liver preceds T2 diabetes and metabolic derangement. However, taht doesn't mean you will go from fatty liver to T2 or to other diseases. You can stop it right there if your metabolism isn't damaged enough. How elevated are your... (more)
