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.)
