Hot water immersion therapy for lowering cholesterol, and triglycerides levels: Hot water immersion (at 39C for 1 hour) decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 6/December/2018, 3.09 pm

The significance of the study:

Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 to 100 million people in the US succumb to this disease; (3) obesity and type 2 diabetes are risk factor for the development of NAFLD;  and (4) the global economic cost spent for NAFLD is enormous, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to decrease cholesterol deposition in liver; (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (iii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; and (iv) a way to cure, not just treat, NAFLD.


Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study suggests, first the first time, a hot water immersion therapy for lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels and to treat Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Hot water immersion (at 39C for 1 hour) , by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may suppress the expression of HMGCR (Fig.1). Thereby, it may: (1) decrease Triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels; (2) attenuate lipid deposition in the liver; and (3) inhibit progression to NAFLD (Fig. 1). Thus, Hot water immersion (at 39C for 1 hour) therapy, either alone or in combination with other drugs, may be used to treat NAFLD.

Figure 1. Mechanistic insights into how hot water immersion(at 39C for 1 hour) decreases the expression of HMGCR, lowers cholesterol levels, decreases triglyceride levels, and NAFLD.

Figure 2. Hot water immersion(at 39C for 1 hour) therapy functions as a cholesterol-lowering agent. Exposure to intense blue light lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels and attenuates NAFLD through down-regulation of HMGCR
