Scientists learn how to reset body clocks

Many of us due to ME end up with a completely screwed up circardian rhythm.. maybe there will be a new treatment for this symptom soon.

Ive always suspected digestion is tied up in all that too.. I have to literally force myself to eat if I want to eat before 2pm as my body dont want to eat at standard times and long realised it had something to do with circardian rhythm.

The study found that when particular receptors in the liver were removed, the body clock does not function properly.

"Clearly these receptors are very important in setting the liver up in the right part of the clock cycle to accept and process nutrition and to regulate digestion," Prof Liddle said.

Shift work and metabolic disorrders like Syndrome X, a diabetes precursor, have long been associated with each other. This new research is not a surprise really - but welcome to see. Thanks Tania. Bye, Alex

I have had a skewed circadian rhythm for several years. When I recently visited my physician, my ALT liver enzyme was elevated. I do not know when it was tested before that. I wonder if the two are related.
