Corticosteroids: Most cases of csr occur in men between the ages of 25 and 55. Most of the time there is no obvious cause and most cases improve without treatment. Stress and cortisone type steroids are the most common cause when a cause can be identified. There is some evidence that stimulant type drugs like decongestants can be a cause. Theoretically, caffeine falls in this group, and should be used moderately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Find out the cause: You have to find out the cause. The most common causes relate to alcohol use, medication side effects, obesity, and auto-immune liver diseases. A gastroenterologist or hepatologist are usually the most helpful doctors in figuring these things out. Usually, if you eliminate the cause, the liver inflammation goes away. Left untreated, it can lead to cirrhosis and ultimately cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"sweets" get into the system rapidly and can alleviate the low blood sugar. Liquids are the fastest, and simple starches like white bread also enter the system fast. However, routinely eating foods with a high glycemic index is not good for diabetic control due to wide blood sugar swings. ...Read more

Can you please tell me if it's just carbohydrates of which are sugars I should avoid or all carbs on a low-carb diet?
Not quite!: Avoid sugar and starch. Look at the total carb content and subtract fiber for "the digestible" carb intake. Fiber is a carbohydrate, but not digested, so it does not count. Sugar alcohols are supposed to be slowly digested, but there is some disagreement here. So to be safe-total carbs minus fiber, equals your "net" carbs! ...Read more
