Can Oatmeal Help Fatty Liver Disease?


if opening is so powerful that it can clear up some of the ravages of chemotherapy just applied to the skin what might it do if we actually ate it the pharmacology of oatmeal oats are reported to possess very drug-like activities like lowering blood cholesterol blood sugar boosting our immune system anti-cancer antioxidant anti-authority roses in addition to being a topical anti-inflammatory it may also be useful in controlling childhood asthma body weight it’s said whole-grain intake in general is associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes cardiovascular disease and weight gain all the cohort studies on type 2 diabetes and heart disease show whole-grain intake is associated with lower risk they observed the same for obesity consistently less weight gain for those who consumed a few servings of whole grains every day yes all the forward-looking population studies demonstrated that higher intake of whole grains associated with lower body mass index and body weight gain however these results do not clarify whether whole-grain consumption is simply a marker of a healthier lifestyle or a factor favoring per se lower body weight for example high whole-grain consumers those who eat whole wheat and brown rice and have oatmeal for breakfast tend to be more physically active smokeless and consume more fruits vegetables and dietary fiber to those that instead reach for fruit loops statistically one can control these factors effectively comparing only non-smokers to non-smokers with similar exercise and diet as most of the studies did and they still found whole grains to be protective via a variety of mechanisms so for example in helping with weight control the soluble fiber of oatmeal forms a gel in the stomach DeLange stomach emptying making one feel full for a longer period which helps with weight loss and then there are other effects in the small and large intestine so it all seems plausible that whole grain intake does indeed for direct benefits however only results from randomized controlled intervention studies can provide the evidence of cause and effect in other words the evidence is clear that oatmeal consumers have lower rates of disease but that’s not the same as proving that if we start to eat more oatmeal our risk will drop to know that we need an interventional try on ideally a blinded study where you give half the people oatmeal and the other half fake placebo oatmeal that looks and tastes like oatmeal to see if it actually works as you can imagine this has not been done until now double blinded randomized trial of overweight and obese men and women and almost 90% of the real oatmeal treated subjects had reduced body weight compared to no weight loss in the control group a slimmer waist on average a 20-point drop in cholesterol and an improvement in liver function non-alcoholic fatty liver disease meaning a fatty liver caused by excess food rather than excess drink is now the most common cause of liver disease in the United States found on autopsy in up to 90% of obese individuals and can lead in rare cases to cirrhosis of the liver cancer of the liver and death now theoretically whole grains could help prevent and treat fatty liver disease but this is the first time it actually been put to the test like this a follow-up study in 2014 confirmed these findings of a protective role of whole grains but refined grains were associated with increased risk so one would not expect to get such wonderful results with Wonder Bread you you

  • At the end you mentioned refined grains, does it matter about how processed the oats are? Should one eat steel cut oats vs rolled oats or quick oats..?

  • Apologies if this is the wrong "forum" but I don't see a more direct option.  Wondering if the good doctor would have run across any studies on the nutritional values of wild greens such as Dandelion, Lambsquarter, Honeysuckle, and of course Stinging Nettles (et al).  This is likely a bit "outside the norms" normally addressed here, but then did we not have a few videos on insect consumption?  Probably more Dandelion than Cricket and Grub eaters in the gallery here.  Thanks for your work!

  • How about the studies that suggest low carb, with higher fat, eggs, protein can help the liver to get rid of fat? It seems its the fructose and carbs that contribute to fatty liver, as well as being obese, no exercise, alcohol etc

  • Oatmeal is the only food that gives me heartburn. I've tested this time and time again. I like it, know it's healthy, but just can't eat it. I'm very sensitive to gluten, but tolerate other gluten-free grains like rice and quinoa just fine. Can anyone suggest another food that has beneficial properties similar to those found in oatmeal?

  • Hi dr, my bilirubin is high (both direct and indirect) my doctor diagnosed it as Gilbert. Is there such thing as Gilbert syndrome or its just one of side effects of eating the wrong diet..I used to eat lots of meats and oil but now left it all a week ago

  • My child loved oatmeal and wanted it for breakfast about 4 days out of 7. She had a lot of cavities. Then I found out that non-soaked oatmeal is very high in phytic acid and studies have shown that it causes tooth decay. We stopped letting her eat oatmeal except as a very occasional treat and her tooth decay was abrupted. Look at the Weston Price website if you want more information on this.

  • And my professor says that carbs are bad and oatmeal SPIKES blood sugar super high. Eat some oatmeal professor!!!!

  • Oatmeal makes me tired and sleepy all of the time. I have been eating one big bowl of oatmeal for the last year and a half and during that time I was always tired and sleepy. I learned from the YouTube channel vegetable police that he too became tired and sleepy while eating a lot of oatmeal. I did some research on this and yes, there are a lot of people who get brain fog from eating this grain. I found out that oatmeal has a lot of melotonin which makes you sleepy. Has anybody else discovered this?

  • Question: I read an article that said there was a study involving children with cavities. The children who ate oatmeal in this study ended up with more cavities at the end than the control group. There was more in the article, but my question is this: I do not have any disease at this time (I'm 52). i have never had a cavity in my life. I don't want to start having cavities or disease. I love oatmeal (plain…no added sugar necessary), but I avoid it because I want to be healthy. But, I keep hearing about all the health benefits of oatmeal. What can I do to have oatmeal, but not get cavities? Have you seen the study regarding cavities & oatmeal? (It was specifically oatmeal in the study. The children who got healed of their cavities got added cod liver oil and butter, I think…not sure).

  • Yes Oats are one of my staples and helped me lose 80 Lbs in 8 months..Thanks Dr. Greger for the work you do reviewing this stuff!!

  • I experienced having fatty liver for five years. All the medical doctors ever wished to do was give me pills and all sorts of medicines. I felt like that was the last of me and I was very down. Then I found the fatty liver treatment method “Vοzοzο humu” (Google it) and started utilizing it. The results have been remarkable.

  • I'm guessing that organic whole oats are very different than the best selling brand. The former is very gooey, which must be the geta-gluten this study refers to, while the latter is not gooey at all. Just guessing.

  • I love goat meal with some mashed up banana..are frozen blueberries any good?..they seem expensive but since I recently stopped paying 10 dollars for an 18pk of beer which only lasted me 2 daus, the blueberries seem like a better deal from a sober and awaken point of view..its only been two weeks since I quit drinking but I am wanting to protect myself from liver disease..also I have an enlarged heart so I need to learn as much as possible before it's too late..whole grains?..the only reason I stopped whole grain rice is because it is said to have arsenic in it and also read that whole grain bread is harder to digest…but as I said, I want and need to learn.

  • They found something interesting in mice studies which they give either alcohol or fructose to get them to develop a fatty liver,….. add 5% of saturated fat to their diet and they don't develop a fatty liver, suggesting that saturated fat protects against fatty liver disease.

    Now lets look at what happens with fiber. Your intestinal microbes convert part or the fiber into saturated short chain fatty acids, which could provide just enough saturated fat to protect the liver. Short chain saturated fat is actually a better energy source than the longer variation, which may mean less is needed to gain the same protection.

  • I think you have great content, and you're probably a very nice person, but …. you really sound like a pompous arsehole when you read. It's incredibly frustrating to follow what you're saying – in fact, when the video ended, I was scratching my head and thinking, 'what the heck did he actually say there ?'. So try and read like a normal person, or get someone else (not a robot voice) to do it for you.

  • O A T S ! – When I ate a shitty diet (prudent Western,) I still ate oat porridge every day – I believe it saved my life. WFPB all the way…GO VEGAN!

  • Do i need to be concerned about the phytate content in oats? I tend to add uncooked oats to smoothies, but now worried I'm undoing all my mineral absorption. Reading conflicting things online… that oats have to be soaked, that soaking actually achieve minimal phytate reduction… What to do?

  • What is the study about oatmeal and side effects of radiation on the skin how dare he bring up something and not provide backup
