Health fraud: Giving the pancreatic enzymes that help in pancreatic insufficiency (cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatic scarring) as a cancer treatment is a cynical, cruel fraud.

Has 'branched chain amino acids' (bcaa) diet suplement some negative affects on human body? (kidneys, liver etc.?)

If it's chronic hepatitis B or C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, or autoimmune hepatitis, you're going to die if you're not diagnosed & Rx'd.

Cause of elevations in proinsulin, c-peptides and proinsulin:c-peptide ratio, c reactive protein & ferritin. Normal A1c & glucose. Previously overwei?
Can't answer: Nobody here can answer without your clinical history, though i wouldn't be surprised if you have hemochromatosis -- truth is, i hope you do, because it's the easiest of all the deadly diseases to manage.
