The Fat Connection

Fat-soluble vitaminsSince I started eating according to the principles of Paleo I have become increasingly aware of the importance of fat. So aware that I today know the importance of eating good fats for optimal health, weight control and hormone balance. Dealing with Hyperprolactinemia while on a low-fat diet, might make matters worse. I also used to know that ‘low-fat is healthy’ but fortunately I know better now. Since I increase my fat intake last summer my prolactin levels have gone down for the first time since ditching medication a year ago (from 2880 down to 1740 mIU/L).

Decalcification of bones is a risk related to long term Hyperprolactinemia. In a post last week I mentioned the vitamins and minerals important to maintain healthy bones. I think it is rather significant to notice the connection between the two issues:

1. Hormones controlled by fat

2. Vitamins and minerals controlled by fat (fat-soluble)

An inadequate intake of fat con cause hormone imbalance (check!) and decalcification of the bones (check!). Is this focus on prolactin maybe covering up the real cause of Hyperprolactinemia – inadequate fat intake? I can in this case only relate to my own dietary history of a probably quite low consumption of fat. I was a picky child and mainly consumed grain-based meals. When I got a bit older I deliberately minimized my fat intake because of the bad media attention surrounding fat. Also it wasn’t very difficult since I was used to not eating fatty foods.

Vitamin D and K are required for ideal utilization of calcium supplements and are both fat-soluble. They are stored in the liver and a daily intake is therefore not required. But in order for the vitamins to get from food/supplement to liver, fat must be present during consumption. Personally I think I have suffered from vitamin deficiency and possibly also vitamin K deficiency in my childhood. I used to be very pale during winter (I’m guessing my body might have been screaming for some sun-exposure). Vitamin K can be obtained by eating e.g. leafy vegetables (I did not eat that as a child).

In conclusion fat is vital – healthy fat that is (read ‘The Paleo Solution’ for further info. I’m not the expert here.)

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
