    Hi guys,

    Does anybody knows if protein powder usage causes cholesterol and fatty liver issues. I have been using whey protein for almost 4 years now and my blood test results says my SGOT and SGPT levels are high.

    I read things online but it Doesn’t say anything about protein powder. Is there a specific type of brand or product someone can suggest please??

    It isn’t the protein or whey powder that is the problem it is the artificial sweetener they are putting into these products. go here to learn more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7257251/

      FYI, most protein powders will contain a “serving’s worth” of cholesterol equivalent of most lean red meat…could be problematic for someone that is touching the upper-limit of the daily tolerance (based on medical history, family genetics, etc.); it’s the reason I moved away from protein supplements 8 years ago.

      Setting aside advances in supplement technology, I have found that incorporating quinoa and wild-caught fish to meet increased protein requirements has helped me decrease my cholesterol levels. I hope this helps!

    I dont think its the protein powder. May be some other kind of food or any past history of liver trauma/ailments ? And generally SGOT/PT can be marginally high. If they are really high, there are medicine available. Just 1 advise that works well – Drink a lot (of water :P) and exercise daily. Water helps!
