Response by Dr. Michael Wald to the question: "I have high blood fats and an elevated liver enzyme. My doctor says that I have fatty liver. Should I be worried?"

If you do not drink much or at all then the type of fatty liver you have is called nonalcoholic steatohepatisis (NASH). Although this form of liver problem is not considered a disease per se, overtime liver cirrhosis can develop and other complications. There is an association of fat in the liver and cardiovascular disease and your lab finding show that you may be heading down this direction.  An overall improvement in your lifestyle and diet should be undertaken and several nutritional compounds have been studied to help reduce fatty liver (they are found within my supplement suggestions below.

Here are my general dietary and lifestyle suggestions that I start my patients off with, but I individualize them based on lots more testing.

1.   Increase the amount of whole, unprocessed foods in your diet (fresh fruit, vegetables,    whole grains, beans, raw nuts and seeds) relative to the amount of processed foods you consume (pasta, bread, packaged foods).

2.   Diversify our diet by including new and different foods in your diet each week.    Rotate the foods you eat so that you don't consume a given food every day.

3.   A fat free diet is not healthy.  Fat should constitute 20-30% of our total diet.  Limit saturated fats (fats found in animal products) to less than 10% of your total diet.  Avoid fried foods, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils and cottonseed oil.  Healthy oils to consume:  Unsaturated essential omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids found in flaxseed oil, olive oil, canola oil, salmon, cod, tuna, mackerel, currants, raw nuts and seeds, avocado and oats:  Store oils and nuts/seeds in the refrigerator

4. Eat a high fiber diet by consuming a lot of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds and minimizing your intake of eats and refined foods. 

5.  Ensure you eat sufficient protein each day (about 15-20% of your diet).  Good protein sources include lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, soy products, and beans, low-fat dairy products, nuts and food-combining of grains/beans/vegetables.

6.  Decrease or eliminate refined and processed sugars from your diet.  As a substitute, use natural, unprocessed sugars high in vitamins and minerals needed to help digest them, including 100% pure maple syrup, fruit-only jams, fresh fruit, honey, molasses, barley malt, brown rice syrup and carob. 

7.  Drink plenty of water each day (body weight divided by 2, multiplied by 0.8 is the number of ounces your body needs, more if you are exercising).  Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages which are diuretics causing your bod to lose fluid.  Herbal teas, fresh vegetable and fruit juices are healthy to consume.  Diluted bottled juices and naturally decaffeinated beverages are OK in moderation.

8.  Eat several small meals throughout the day instead of two or three large meals.  This helps to balance your blood sugar and energy levels throughout the day. 

9.  Chew your food thoroughly.

10.  Don't drink fluids with our meal.

11.  Don't eat when you are stressed or "on-the-run".

12.  Supplement a healthy diet with a good quality multi-vitamin/mineral complex and other nutrients indicated for our individual health needs.

This question, and Dr. Wald's response, appeared onAE AllExpert.com - a website where the public can post and receive expert responses. 

Questioner:  Sarah

Category:  Alternative Medicine

Subject:  antibiotics and joint problems

Question:Last year my 14 year old daughter was on Clindamycin (1800mg)daily for 6 months. Overall her body handled this pretty well. During the treatment the arches in her feet began to hurt (this has subsided) and since she has finished the medicine her joints have been loose. Her shoulders and hips will pop out of socket. Her elbows or wrists feel like they need to be popped. This is not painful but worrisome for me. During and since ending the medicine she has been on a probiotic daily, vit C & D, and a  multi-vitamin. She frequently drinks greens powder. Blood work after the antibiotic treatment was normal but she went on 30day liver cleanse. 

Do you have any ideas why this has affected her joints and what we can do to correct it? I worry that this might cause her to develop arthritis or something just as bad. I have also sent her to a chiropractor.

Thank you

Children, Antibiotics and Side Effects

Hello Sarah - 

Thank you for your question. Your daughters joint symptoms, that you describe as loose, sound like ligament laxity - a fancy word for loose joints that can cause the symptoms that you described. Not a typical symptom of Clindamycin, but nonetheless seem to have been from the antibiotic. Clindamaycin can cause tissue and joint issues so I would report this symptom to the prescribing doctor.  If there are no objections consider:

Higher dosages of vitamin C: Buffered C Powder: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/buffered-c-effervescent

Reds, Green and Purple colored fruits and vegetables in the form of a dehydrated drink concentrate:

-     Green's detox: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/green-detox

-     Reds Protect: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/reds-protect

-     Longevity Complete: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/longevity-complete

Zinc Picolinate - as it is the most common mineral deficiency of antibiotic use and required for joint health, immunity and for over 175 different enzymes in the body essential for healing overall.  Go to: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/zinc-picolinate

KickButt Immunity Spray 2: http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/kickbuttimmunity2

Super dosage of probiotics - much higher than commercially available - consider:  http://www.blooddetective.com/all-supplements/re-colonize

Saccromyces boulardii - this beneficial yeast offsets one's risk of a very dangerous side effect of Clindamycin known as C. Difficile infection.

There is no "detox" per se needed for antibiotics but nutrition to repair the increased or "leaky" intestine caused by antibiotics (known as leaky gut syndrome).

These nutrients in combination are a good start.

I do hope that this helps.

Dr. Michael Wald
