Continuous intake of rapeseed oil causes…

In December 2011 I started consuming rapeseed oil (from Germany). It was organic, not refined, and cold-pressed oil. In January 2012 I faced a problem with tooth. I visited doctor and the problem seemed to go away. I continued to use rapeseed oil everywhere ??? pan-frying, salad dressing etc. In April 2012 I noticed severe hyperglycemia (fasting glucose = 6.6 mmol with 10+ and up to 20 daily).

My questions to you:

  1. Can I blame this rapeseed oil (too much PUFAs)?
  2. Anything to link rapeseed oil to hepatic insulin resistance? Any scientific work would be great!

After switching to paleo eating blood glucose normalized and does not exceed 6-7 mmol now.

Yes. As stated about Omega-6 fatty acids are strongly correlated with NAFLD especially in combination with fructose.

Rapeseed oil is terrible. Most cheap low quality peanut butters like Peter Pan and Skippy have Soybean and Rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil is to be completely avoided on a paleo eating plan. It's just as bad as all the other rancid, toxic high omega 6 vegetable and seed oils. Use Avocado, Extra Virgin olive oil, grassfed butter, coconut oil and red palm oil.
