Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed the best way to lose weight.

Latest Research

According to this study, a major subset of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID) begins with gut symptoms first then some report mood disorders while a smaller subset of individuals had a mood disorder that preceded their gut issues. So while the brain-gut pathways are bidirectional, this study implies it is more likely for IBS and other issues to develop by some gut mechanism first.


The low-FODMAP diet is effective in alleviating IBS symptoms and showing changes in inflammatory cytokines, microbiota profile, and short-chain fatty acids.


In a study to investigate the association between thyroid antibody levels and the risk for developing hypothyroidism, the data indicates largely elevated levels of TPO-Abs being associated with a moderately increased risk of developing hypothyroidism.

  1. I heard your interview on the Keto Answers podcast in which you talked about aminogobulins supporting, replenishing or creating the slime layer in the intestines. Have you found any relationships to them increasing tear production in people with dry eyes?
