What role does tumor necrosis factor play in insulin resistance? Have you noticed improved insulin sensitivity when you use an anti-TNF agent such as Etanercept ? Do you recommend Etanercept for all your type 2 patients?
Etanercept has a number of severe potential adverse effects, and therefore is the sort of thing you'd only want to use for urgent situations. I don't recommend its use for insulin resistance, but urge that we do all the things to lower insulin resistance that I mention in my book, Diabetes Solution.
Can fatty liver be corrected by lowering blood sugar?
Answer: I had fatty liver from the age of 13 until I got my blood sugars normalized, and it took a few years of normal blood sugar to make the fatty liver go away. How do I know the fatty liver ceased? It used to hang below my right ribs, and when I pressed on it, it hurt. Eventually after a few years of normal blood sugars, I could no longer feel it.
