Milk thistle metformin

Common Questions and Answers about Milk thistle metformin


Avatar n tn Now it usually runs anywhere from 90-110. I have been having a lot of gallbladder issues, so I take Milk Thistle, Dandelion and some other natural supplements. Since I've been taking the supplements, my A1C is now at 5.8, so I think they helped me lower it even more than just the Metformin alone.
568322 tn?1370169040 One of the few supplements which has been shown to be beneficial to the liver but without any toxic effects is Milk Thistle (Silybum Marianum) and there is no evidence of toxicity related to the pure form of milk thistle. It is known to protect cells in our liver that is not damaged (Riley, 2001 – part 1). List of Toxic Vitamins, Supplements and Herbal Remedies: • Amanita species – wild mushrooms. • Asafetida – plant, comes in powder, tablet or oil form.

Avatar m tn I read also that choline and vitamin E can help reverse NAFLD. I take milk thistle also what happens with high AST ALT levels and FLD? is it the liver cells are permanently dead or scarred and ammonia is sometimes released now?
Avatar m tn NAC may cause cardiac fibrosis, thickening of the walls and heart and lung hypertension, narrowing of the airways when I take the 1.
Avatar n tn The severity of the hives fluctuated for over 5 weeks until I went to the health food store. They suggested that I take milk thistle to help rejevenate and detox my liver. (By the way I am not a drinker or a drug user.) And it worked! The theory is that when the liver gets over stressed by toxins, life stresses, etc. it can not work to its best ability to help detoxify the body. That leaves the toxins to exit through another channel, one exit being your skin.
Avatar m tn what effectiveness and safety do sam-E, NAC, milk thistle, choline have in treating NAFLD and anesthesia liver poisoning?
Avatar m tn I took 72g of NAC and choline 500mg liverrite/day, milk thistle and it lowered my levels
Avatar n tn and I threw the prednisone in the trash. It took awhile but my memory is much improved. I have added natural supplements such as milk thistle, probiotics, Pau D'Arco, Liv-52 and bioflavenoids. My liver panels have improved a lot, my sugars are back to normal and so is my BP. I am not a doctor, but I CAN tell you that prescription drugs put me in this mess and nature is working just fine to get me out of it. Hope everything goes well.
193177 tn?1218694001 I have also taken milk thistle extract (sylmarin) for several years. I was not aware of lemon tonics to heal your liver. I'll check in to that. Thanks!
283921 tn?1218529106 Will ALA help my liver? I have taken milk thistle for 14 years, but I am not sure it has helped. What do you think? Do you have cirrhosis?
1353650 tn?1429466974 D 5000, vit C, manganese, magnesium and potassium for electrolytes that are depleted, Creatine everyday, charcoal daily to help remove excess ammonia, bentonite clay and fiber to help remove ammonia and other toxins, Dandelion rt. in small amounts because it is a high in sulfur ( cannot take milk thistle because it is higher in sulfur than dandelion rt.) and histame or DOAsin to help lower histamine. We have other supplements but the ones I listed are the most important.
Avatar m tn Before I started treating, I was taking an individual dose of all the vitamins, calcium, flax oil, milk thistle, schizandra, tumeric etc. This combination allowed me to reduce my AST and ALT counts while I was waiting to start (about one year). I had been suffering from fatigue, and it really worked to give me back some energy. When I finally started treatment, I was told to cut out everything except one vitamin E, one multi B and one C.

Avatar f tn I had a reading of fsh 27 around May of last year, i found this site thereafter and started taking DHEA, Wheatgrass pills, Milk Thistle and Agnus Cactus. I was working in a microbiology dept and was able to get my blood tests done for free on a regular basis, the fsh levels went down to the lowest being 11.
Avatar n tn I am always looking for new things to try. One more questions, will taking Milk Thistle harm me in any way if I do happen to get pregnant?
Avatar n tn it's targeted toward geno 1b's and their trials are lasting 1-3 months (hopefully because that's all the time needed to kill the virus). In the meanwhile I'm drinking green tea and taking maximum Milk Thistle. Thanks again for all of your comments.
908275 tn?1244759430 If you are feeling well, not drinking, drugging, I know exercise, pure natural foods, juicing, liver cleansing can help, better than the tx as I have followed cases for nearly 4 years. You don't need that Nat-cell, or milk thistle homeopathic ****. If only I had listened to others instead of my Hepatologist! I am a bitter man because I ask him now what and he says I don't know! Your liver is fine!
Avatar m tn one other thing forgot to mention i take chromium and milk thistle supplements. but no idea if they make difference. i think changes to diet and exercise more important.
Avatar m tn The other drug is milk thistle. If you do have Hepatitis C, the Hepatitis C MAY be causing the Type II Diabetes and the cholesterol problem which is causing your gallstones. You also mentioned fatty liver. There is a relationship between Hep C and fatty liver as well as a relationship between Diabetes and fatty liver.

Avatar n tn one has to suspect you have even better odds if you lose weight, abstain form alcohol or use in extreme moderation, exercise regularly, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and take recognized supplements (yes, even the med research institutions have validated the old wives' remedy found that milk thistle and licorice help). Your odds of getting life altering side effects from interferon are worse. Interferon combination therapy is a dangerous scam.
Avatar n tn I'm thinking whoever said it might be micro mites, maybe this is so. I just started drinking Almond milk since I am limiting sugar intake - doubt this is it. I have not taken any medication for at least a month, and haven't taken any vitamins or pills for over a month or so, so can't it on that. I will keep reading for remedies.
Avatar n tn But, I getting through it while ingesting Milk Thistle, Ginko Biloba and my daily vitamins. I think I am going to be ok - so far so good. Yes, the feeling is uncomfortable and last night my nightmares were intense and caused me restless sleep but I think I can handle that. I will keep you guys posted but I have a feeling that after this passes, I will feel much more like me again.
Avatar m tn Green tea extract and curcumin are good, milk thistle inhibits the replication of the virus. Vitamin A is depleted in hep c as is beta-carotene, so it might be wise to supplement those. Also Activated stellate cells, which are associated with fibrogenesis, actually store vitamin a and their depletion may have deleterious effects on the process of fibrosis: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn They removed the equvelant of 2 large jugs of milk from her tomack. It turns out the ultrasound did not pick it up because it was fluid so it did not show. The fluid was tested and all I heard from her it was a mixure of blood and lack of doctor term water. She dropped about 30 + lbs from this. She did not need to use her scooter as much after going to physo. Go figure thats all I know of her situation. It never returned. I feel for you's very much. Are you diabetic? I have no clue.
