Type 1 Diabetes: One Factor That Can Increase Your Risk
Managing Diabetes In Light Of Current Research
There is more to diabetes that a high-fiber, low-fat diet.
In fact, avoiding healthy saturated fats and eating whole wheat bread may do more to promote the development of type 2 diabetes.6
When it comes to diabetes, it makes sense to use dietary tools that can protect the body from the development of an inflammatory response or an autoimmune flare up.
In addition to removing gluten from the diet…
- Supplement with enzymes. Enzyme supplements that help to break apart dairy, animal, and grain proteins can prevent an otherwise explosive autoimmune flare up.
Body Ecology’s Assist Dairy and Protein contains DPP IV, which helps to deconstruct gliadin (a protein found in wheat gluten) and casein. Because these proteins are often the source of an intense inflammatory response, DPP IV supplementation can provide a great deal of relief to those with gluten-sensitivity.78
- Eat fermented foods and beverages. Wheat gluten promotes the growth of pro-inflammatory bacteria that can make autoimmunity worse overtime.9
When we choose to eat a side of cultured vegetables or drink a few ounces of a probiotic beverage with every meal, we choose to equip the body beneficial bacteria that fight the inflammatory cascade.
