Paris, June 21; The Habba syndrome is a nice name for a very old sickness which was simply called gall bladder inflammation.
In the old days the treatment was to change lifestyle and eat vegetables and shun fats and oil.
Since becoming the "Habba Syndrome" the treatment has become using an ion exchanger called cholesteramine; It binds the fatty acids and prevents them from informing the gall bladder that it should increased the delivery of bile acids.
It acts a bit like a chelate.
The question is:
OK, it works very well, suddenly within days you can live a normal life and eat like anyone.
But a chelate, or an ion exchanger, while binding the unwanted chemicals will also bind some of the chemicals that are essential to the body and mind.
I cannot find any reference to the risks of a long term use of cholesteramine.
I would be grateful for any help.
