Pay Attention to These Signs of Kidney Failure!

Keith Scott-Mumby

You might not think about your kidneys much but when things go wrong, it can be deadly!  Renal (kidney) failure is officially the ninth leading cause of death – claiming the lives of more than 47,000 people in the United States alone every year.   Renal failure occurs when your kidneys are suddenly unable to […] The post Pay Attention to These Signs of Kidney Failure! appeared first on Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby.

Do You Have Symptoms of Fatty Liver?

Keith Scott-Mumby

Not many people talk about the liver.  It isn’t as dazzling as the brain and the heart but between the liver and the kidneys, 99% of the toxins in your body are safely removed.  Without it, the contaminants – caused by air, water, food, and the waste by-product – in your body would overwhelm your […]

Is Fruit Sugar Bad For Us?

Keith Scott-Mumby

We know fructose, the main sugar from fruit, it very toxic to the liver. Does that mean we shouldn’t be eating fruit? Nah! It means eat moderately. Think of yourself as a caveman or cavewoman wandering through he forest, gathering and nibbling berries and roots. Eat at about that rate. What’s wrong with our modern living is that we can go to a supermarket and buy a whole week’s food and then eat the entire packet in hours. That’s not natural. Eating some grapes, crunching an apple, followed by a few nuts, a couple of dried apricots an hour or two later… that’s hunter-gatherer style eating. What’s really unnatural, of course, is eating concentrated fruit sugars; meaning high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Fructose is a simple sugar found in fruits and vegetables. It also is combined with glucose to manufacture high-fructose corn syrup, a sweetener in many packaged foods such as cereal and soda. That’s very bad and we know it damages the liver. I doubt it does the rest of the body much good either. Now a new test has been suggested, to monitor levels of uric acid and a reduction in liver energy stores. High uric acid, or hyperuricemia (like gout), is linked to lower levels of liver adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a compound involved in transferring energy between cells. The researchers, who published their new report in the September issue of the journal Hepatology, noted that energy depletion in the liver could result in liver damage for those with the metabolic condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and in those at risk for the condition. They stressed that the public should be aware of these risks associated with a diet high in fructose.

Pass The Kidneys Please!

Kidneys passed around, like cookies on a plate? This grim specter is one step closer. In a rather sensational news story, it was revealed that U.S. doctors were involved in a case where a kidney transplanted into one patient had to be removed but was then successfully transplanted into another patient. Well, “Waste not, want […]
