D Ribose And Thyroid Function
Hyperthyroidism: There are no food that reverse hyperthyroidism or make it worse.
Supposedly: Ribose (or D-ribose, which is an isomer) helps to decrease muscle cramping, pain, and improving muscle energy and throughput with exercise. There is no evidence or scientific data that it does anything, but word of mouth and testimonials seem to support the efficacy of ribose in improving exercise duration and performance.
Perhaps: ? if d-Ribose can benefit a person with fibromyalgia (FM). I am not aware that this has been studied. Physicians who practice Orthomolecular Medicine believe that if you present the body with the natural materials it uses for internal biochemical processes, those processes will be induced. D-Ribose is used by mitochondria to produce the energy molecule ATP. People w. FM commonly suffer fatigue.See 1 more doctor answer
No: It has no value for either.Get a more detailed answer ›
D-ribose and ATP: D-ribose is a sugar the body uses in the metabolism of ATP, important in muscle metabolism. It is claimed to increase energy including that of muscles. It has been used in athletics, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep aid and fatigue aid. There are actual genetic disorders helped by d-ribosome. The real question unanswered is long term side effects and double blind trials for proof.
Yes: Ribose is one of the building blocks of atp, the energy currency of the body. Your CHF might be due to defective energy metabolism, so ribose might help.
Need for ribose: Is extremely rare. Donot waste your money
May help a bit but:: D-Ribose can be a healthy sugar substitute but isn't a magic weight loss aid. The key to weight loss is longterm diet changes.Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp. Cause weight gain. It's also wise to avoid fried foods. I like Dr. Fuhrman's diet: http://tinyurl. Com/ktampgg Dr. Weil has useful info: http://tinyurl. Com/m8avwzh See his "discuss that" link in his article. Exercise is also important!
?: No established direct effect, but such deleterious drug isn't expected to be of any benefit in any condition, including psychiatric illness claimed by some to be of value, do yourself, or the person you're asking on his/her behalf, a favor, and get treated right in a detox program, good luck
Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l (h). Do I need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously
PTU (propylthiouracil) and liver: Drugs like ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can cause liver toxicity but hyperthyroidism can also cause elevation int the liver enzyme test you had done. If your still early in your treatment and your thyroid hormone levels (free t4) is still high it could be that. Hope this helps.
Not at same time: A person might be both hyper- and hypothyroid at different times in his/her life, but you can't be 'actively' both at the same time, nosiree.See 1 more doctor answer
