Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed the future of functional medicine.


Latest Research

Parvovirus B19 is associated with thyroid autoimmunity, but we still don’t know if this is merely association or if it’s causal.

Those with thyroid autoimmunity are at increased risk of B12 deficiency due to autoimmunity against stomach cells.

Vitamin D supplementation improved IBS symptoms compared to placebo.  50,000 IUs were given every other week, which would equal 3,500 IU daily.

More evidence showing probiotics help with H. Pylori eradication.

Not wearing shoes in tropical locations might increase your chances of a worm infection.

  1. I recently came across this research paper entitled: Dipeptidyl peptidase-4: A key player in chronic liver disease 2013 April World J of Gastroenterol.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23613622

    I was wondering with so many products containing the DPP-IV enzyme that promote breakdown of the gluten peptides (even Dr. Tom O’Bryan has a product)is there a problem with it’s usage?

    I eagerly await your response.
