Consumption of repeatedly heated vegetable oil by rates caused "significant damage" in the small intestines, colon and liver. Damage likely caused by formation of destructive reactive oxygen species. RE: Relates to eating french fries or any deep fried food from a restaurant.

Found this super interesting. The repeated reheating of the oil seems to damage it and cause damage to the the creature that eats it.

Evaluation of the deleterious health effects of consumption of repeatedly heated vegetable oil

Abstract

Consumption of repeatedly heated cooking oil (RHCO) has been a regular practice without knowing the harmful effects of use. The present study is based on the hypothesis that, heating of edible oils to their boiling points results in the formation of free radicals that cause oxidative stress and induce damage at the cellular and molecular levels. Peroxide value of heated oil, histopathological alterations, antioxidant enzyme levels and blood biochemistry were determined in Wistar rats treated with the RHCO. RHCO revealed higher peroxide value in comparison to oil that has been unheated or singly heated. Histopathological observation depicted significant damage in jejunum, colon and liver of animals that received oil heated repeatedly for 3 times. The altered antioxidant status reflects an adaptive response to oxidative stress. Alteration in the levels of these enzymes might be due to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) through auto oxidation or enzyme catalyzed oxidation of electrophilic components within RHCO. Analysis of blood samples revealed elevated levels of glucose, creatinine and cholesterol with declined levels of protein and albumin in repeatedly heated cooking oil group. Hematological parameters did not reveal any statistically significant difference between treated and control groups. Results of the present study confirm that the thermal oxidation of cooking oil generates free radicals and dietary consumption of such oil results in detrimental health effects.

FODMAP affecting the small intestine vs the colon?

I contacted Monash about this but haven’t heard back. My only other info I have on this is one of my RDs told me she believed it was primarily the colon, but I have heard otherwise. Does anyone know which one, or if both, are affected? And if so, can you point me to the literature that indicates this?

Healing small intestine

Soon ten year old daughter recently got a celiac diagnosis. Have had severe pains in the stomach before this. Now starts the journey of healing the small intestine. Gluten is of course removed. She got secondary lactose intolerance which will probably fix itself as she heals. Is there any non obvious things to make her better and reduce pains in these months of recovery? Something like β€œmore fiber”, β€œless fiber”, β€œavoid onions” and so on. We are extremely cautious with the gluten content but she had a tough week anyway.

Gas produced in the small intestine

Does anyone have knowledge about how to tell the difference between gas produced in the small intestine vs. the large intestine? And also how does gas produced in the small intestine pass into the large intestine? Does the ICV valve have to continuously open?

My theory is that gas produced in the small intestine is much more likely to become trapped, while gas produced in the large intestine passes naturally because the large intestine registers it as gas, while gas produced in the small intestine that travels to the large intestine is registered as food, so it becomes trapped and leads to bloating.

I can start to feel 90% of my gas first in my lower right abdomen, then it slowly travels to the left side, but just sits. I believe that must mean that that gas was produced in the small intestine and made its way to the large intestine.

Thoughts?

Anyone else feel like each section of your digestive tract has problems, but potentially different problems? (Grumbly upset stomach, bloated and noisy small intestine (SIBO?), and an unhappy colon (IBS?)) Here are a few lifestyle changes that seem to have really helped me; love to hear other ideas!

The lifestyle changes I have made that really seem to have helped:

  1. Low FODMAP diet: one snack of brussel sprouts showed me very quickly how much I react to certain foods with bloating, nauseousness, etc.

  2. No coffee: This has been hard for me to accept but clearly coffee is causing me a ton of stomach upset and exhaust-pipe problems (IBS). I have been having a cup of green tea instead (which has caffeine!).

  3. No food after dinner: I would often wake up in the morning kind of feeling OK, but within a few minutes my intestines would β€œwake up”, as if they had been sleeping all night and were now getting back to work. It seems like things sit too still all night, so not eating for a long time before sleep seems to help make sure stuff isn’t sitting around in the digestive system fermenting.

  4. No probiotics: This was almost as hard for me to accept as β€œno coffee” because I LOVE Kimchi, sauerkraut, true pickles, etc. and had even been pickling my own stuff (pickled carrots are SO good), but due to low motility the stuff that should be living in the large intestine seemed to be causing issues in the small intestine.

  5. Better β€œsleep hygiene”: I shut off all electronics at 9ish, shut down everything around the house, take a melatonin (such vivid dreams and great sleep!), and go read a book in bed for a while. The good quality sleep really seems to help with stress and overall well-being, which I have come to realize is a HUGE part of belly health.

TMI, background on me, because it seems relevant because every body is different: I was always pretty healthy but had major belly surgeries two years ago (an β€œout of nowhere” case of diverticulitis gone mad resulting in colon resection surgery, temporary colostomy bag, blah blah, put back together...) which has pretty obviously left me with small intestine adhesions and low motility, and because of all that I’m pretty sure I have SIBO (low motility in the small intestine causes bacteria to live there that really should be in the large intestine). Also probably have long had borderline IBS already but ignored it.

Question: How do nutrients get from the small or large intestine to their final destination?

This might be inappropriate for this sub, but here goes:

How do nutrients get from the small or large intestine to their final destination? Do blood vessels swoop down to the intestinal lining to "scoop up" nutrients, and then carry them directly to their final destination?

Or, are all the nutrients in your gut pulled out, taken via blood vessels to your liver or kidneys first, and then distributed outward from there?

Can Adderall affect ulcers in small intestine?

Recent Colonoscopy indicated I have β€œlocalized aphthous ulcers in the terminal ileum”. I have not received a full review of those results or a final diagnosis as dr is waiting on bloodwork. However, he stated there’s strong probability it is Chrons. When I inquired about food and medication aversions he said the only thing I should stay away from is Advil.

Honestly, he is kind of the worst and doesn’t answer any of my questions or explain anything at all. He was the first appt I could get and now I see why he was wide open.

I was still taking adderall when I initially began to have symptoms (severe bloating, tenderness, what felt like heartburn in my abdomen, blood in stool, increased frequency and changes in consistency and color of stool) but quickly stopped because I wasn’t sure if it was making things worse.

If you have any input on my situation I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Do people with Sibo (especially Methane/constipation based SIBO) pain located under the belly button, in Ileum (lower part of small intestine) ?

Hi,

Do you people with Sibo (especially Methane/constipation based SIBO) have pain located under the belly button, in Ileum (lower part of small intestine) ?

this is my problem:

https://www.reddit.com/r/SIBO/comments/kdxaar/have_severe_symptoms_severe/

My problem intestines became screwed up after taking 20 days of Cefixime. I tried fixing it with probiotics, which made me feel very bad, sick. Since antibiotics impact GI flora, and probiotics are bacteria, and my severe symptoms started after taking probiotics for some time, my only explanation is that my problem is bacteria based, IMO a Methane based SIBO (due to constipation and severe bloating and gas).

Current symptoms:

Symptoms lasting from 7.12.2020, feel them 24/7. Very bad bloating to the point where my belly is fully "swollen", it hurts from bottom to top where ribs are, when I touch belly. I also feel constant cramps in my belly and also feel gas moving through my intestines. I manage to poop approximately every 3 days. There are times where I pass no gas to little gas, to lots of gas. When I manage to poop, pain changes to sharp pain (as if knife was moving through intestines) and concentrates in the middle of lower abdomen, approximate location of is there where bladder is, but it is not bladder, but intestines (probably Ileum). Pain is mainly located in small area right below belly button, it even hurts when I push on it. After pooping usually the symptoms are back within couple of hours back to same pain as before (whole belly bloated). I also sometimes feel nausea (but no vomiting).

- So, from what I have noticed, my pain is located mainly in area under belly button, in lower abdomen, according to human anatomy in that area is located Ileum.

Google says: " The majority of SIBO test results show overgrowth in ileum, likely as a result of damage to the migrating motor complex "

Do you guys who suffer from SIBO have similiar pain, in that area? Thanks

Suspicious small intestine biopsy from endoscopy?

Hi all,

I recently had an endoscopy done and my doctors office just called me about the biopsy’s taken from my small intestine and informed me that it was β€œsuspicious” for celiac disease and they would like for me to get some bloodwork done to confirm.

Has anyone had a situation similar to this?

I’m curious to hear your story. I have had digestive issues for years, but mainly blamed it on alcohol and eating bad. I have corrected a lot of that and no longer have many flare ups, but I’m shocked this never came up on any bloodwork or scan or test I’ve had run on me over the last 10 years.

I am scheduled to get my bloodwork taken tomorrow.

[MILESTONE] The Electronic Heart (and the electronic liver and the small intestine as well)

March, 1969 - Czechoslovakia

Milestone - Develop a High-Tech Manufacturing Sector (2 out of 5)

While most big electronics manufacturers abandoned vacuum tubes in the late 1950s and early 1960s, entering an era of electronic circuits and transistors, the true is that Czechoslovakia, and the rest of the East when it comes to it, has not been able to go through such metamorphosis when it comes to consumer goods. Most television sets and radio receivers produced in the Communist Bloc are still based around bulky, fragile and energy inefficient parts, lagging behind one of the greatest revolutions in the history of electronic goods.

With the major increase in grants offered by the Central Planning Commission this year, the Tesla Company has US$105,000,000 extra available for the development of new technology. It is more than enough money to expand the research capabilities, hire private experts from the West and Japan and focus on a realistic project to overhaul the current line of products inside and out. The goal is to be able to produce totally indigenous solid-state electronic prototypes for a television set and a radio receiver by early 1971.

To reach such capability, Tesla will first focus on resolving the enormous problem with semiconductor devices. Based on the studies of Western products made last year, on access to military-grade electronics and on previous domestic knowledge, the researchers will upgrade the diodes currently in use and develop the first β€œmade in Czechoslovakia” MOSFET transistors and integrated circuits. We believe this advancement will prove useful not only for the improvement of the current goods offered by Tesla, but also contribute immensely for the national industry in general.

The Small Intestine (not the liver) Converts Dietary Fructose into Glucose and Organic Acids

Excessive consumption of sweets is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome. A major chemical feature of sweets is fructose. Despite strong ties between fructose and disease, the metabolic fate of fructose in mammals remains incompletely understood. Here we use isotope tracing and mass spectrometry to track the fate of glucose and fructose carbons in vivo, finding that dietary fructose is cleared by the small intestine. Clearance requires the fructose-phosphorylating enzyme ketohexokinase. Low doses of fructose are ~90% cleared by the intestine, with only trace fructose but extensive fructose-derived glucose, lactate, and glycerate found in the portal blood. High doses of fructose (β‰₯1 g/kg) overwhelm intestinal fructose absorption and clearance, resulting in fructose reaching both the liver and colonic microbiota. Intestinal fructose clearance is augmented both by prior exposure to fructose and by feeding. We propose that the small intestine shields the liver from otherwise toxic fructose exposure.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6032988/bin/nihms970244u1.jpg

While it is commonly believed that the liver is the main site of fructose metabolism, Jang et al. show that it is actually the small intestine that clears most dietary fructose, and this is enhanced by feeding. High fructose doses spill over to the liver and to the colonic microbiota.

Highlights

  • Isotope tracing reveals that the small intestine metabolizes most dietary fructose
  • High-dose fructose saturates intestinal fructose clearance capacity
  • Excess fructose spills over to the liver and colonic microbiota
  • Intestinal fructose clearance is enhanced by feeding

Green-brown bile in J-P drain, 12hrs post mesenteric/small intestine abscess drainage

Patient is 37M, non-smoker, no known health concerns other than obesity and sleep apnea, no abdominal injuries. We (I'm his fiance/common-law spouse) reside in eastern Canada. Patient experienced abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, low energy, general discomfort from Dec 25-27th, which resulted in a visit to our local ER on Dec 27th. Patient was admitted eve of Dec 27th, put on bowel rest, and started on antibiotics and pain meds (metronidazole and ceftriaxone along with lactated ringers solution and Dilaudid/Tylenol). CT scan discovered abdominal abscess on Dec 28th, in belly button area. Follow-up scan with contrast on Dec 31 showed that abscess grew despite constant IV antibiotics. Decision was made to operate.

Patient had open surgery on Jan 2nd. No apparent IBD/diverticulitis discovered. "Golf-ball sized" (surgeons description) abscess found in mesenteric area amongst the small intestine loops and was drained/washed. No known cause of abscess prior to or immediately after surgery.

A Jackson-Pratt drain was placed during surgery. Fluid was red and yellow throughout first 8-10 hours post-surgery. The next morning during initial post-surgery follow-up it was discovered that a dark green fluid was present - bile, it appears. Surgeon somewhat concerned, mentioned there may be a hole in the small intestine that was missed during the first procedure. We're hopeful that the antibiotic treatment + drained/washed abscess will allow the apparent hole to close on its own. Plan is to watch for 2 days and then potentially go back in to remove a portion of small intestine if the issue does not resolve.

My/our question is surrounding the hole, and the likelihood that such a thing could heal on its own with antibiotics and the removal of puss/infection in the abscess. Surgeon seemed to have mild-to-moderate concern, but we're aware that Poker-face exists. ;) Patient believes he'll end up needing it removed ("my luck") and we're both feeling pretty nervous at this point. His anxiety is rising substantially. Still, two RNs have told us today that "it's somewhat common" to see this green-black/green-brown fluid. I'm terrified of him developing sepsis - which is probably irrational, I understand. The thought that there is a hole spewing intestinal contents into his body is not my favourite.

It's impossible to predict the future, obviously, and you don't have the chart/notes, I understand, but I thought perhaps some discussion may help me comp
