|Studies on reversing wasting
May 1, 2001
I have been checking out the Q & A section for the last two years and I have seen no reference to research that is being done to reverse wasting. Can you tell me if any research/trials are under way, please.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear Dave, There is plenty of research going on about wasting. However we have to be certain about what you mean. There is the old wasting, for which testosterone, anabolics and growth hormone work well. And then there is the new wasting, due to mitochondrial toxicity. There is much less data on treating that problem, but lots of work is being done as we speak, just no answers yet! DTD
No spicy or fatty foods? Why eat, then?
