Latest Research

Subclinical hypothyroidism is frequently seen in our population, with most patients complaining of lethargy. The most common treatment indications were a TSH ≥ 10mIU/l, whereas troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism and subfertility were the common treatment indications in patients who had a TSH of < 10mIU/l.

Patients with irritable bowel syndrome might benefit from yoga and a low-FODMAP diet, as both groups showed a reduction in gastrointestinal symptoms.

Fungi are an underappreciated component of the human gut microbiota. Here it’s demonstrated that fungal dysbiosis induced by antifungal treatment or inoculation with typically rare fungi results in exaggerated immune responses, suggesting that fungal colonizers play key roles in immune homeostasis.

The aim of study was to evaluate the relation of antibody induced by gluten to zonulin and intestinal fatty acid binding proteins (I-FABP), that is, serological markers of an impaired gut barrier.  Serum concentrations of zonulin and I-FABP showed no statistically significant association with antibody positivity. An increased production of antibodies related to gliadin and neural TG6 in ASD children is not related to serological markers of an impaired intestinal barrier.

This study shows a significant correlation between excessive intestinal gas and liver steatosis (non-alcoholic fatty liver). The reasons of this finding and its clinical implications remain to be defined.

  1. I am dealing with increased inflammation, gut dybosis and not digesting fats and proteins very well thus slow digestion, constipation, what might help me in fixing this problem?

    I do notice excessive gas and liver pain. I have taken variety of supplements with little help. Just went gluten and diary free
