• New discoveries in medicine are required to understand the importance of drug metabolism with relevance to the treatment of Type 2 and Type 3 diabetes that are now connected to various chronic diseases. Repression of the anti-aging gene Sirtuin 1 (Sirt 1) is now associated with the development of non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), mitochondrial apoptosis with relevance to drug metabolism (Ref 1,2). Major interests in caffeine consumption has increased with the alarming increase in the global NAFLD epidemic (Ref 3) relevant to increased transport of caffeine to the brain with the induction of Type 3 diabetes and inactivation of hepatic drug metabolism (Ref 4). Specific nutritional diets are essential to maintain hepatic drug transport and caffeine metabolism to facilitate rapid amyloid beta clearance (Ref 4) from the brain to the periphery and to maintain the effects of drugs that may need to be transported to the brain for the treatment of Type 3 diabetes, neurological diseases and Alzheimer’s disease. The heat shock gene Sirt 1 (Ref 5) may require essential nutrients to maintain its regulation of the circadian rhythm and allow rapid caffeine and amyloid beta metabolism in individuals with diabetes and other chronic diseases with relevance to liver disease on drug pharmacokinetics.
