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??
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!
