Gluten-free Diets May Be Tied To An Increased Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

Gluten-free diets are all the rage, but shunning gluten may offer no benefit to overall health for most people, a new analysis suggests. In fact, the people in the study who ate more gluten were 13 percent less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes over the 30-year study than those who ate less gluten, the researchers found. For some individuals, there are health reasons to avoid gluten, a protein found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Certain people, for example, have an intolerance to gluten, which can lead to abdominal pain, bloating or fatigue. Others have celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects mostly the small intestine; when people with this disease eat gluten, their immune system responds by attacking the intestine’s lining. However, even some people who do not have celiac disease or an intolerance to gluten believe that gluten-free diets are healthier than those that include gluten products, and the researchers wanted to see whether this belief might have any scientific merit, said lead study author Geng Zong, a nutrition research fellow at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. In the study, the researchers looked at surveys Continue reading >>

    A gluten-free diet is a healthy one recommended for anyone. Since up to 30% of the u.s. is now gluten intolerant (and many have gastric distress, but don't know this is the cause), it is worth anyone taking a serious look at it. It involves replacing wheat/rye/barley products with other grains.
    If there is a concern, it is that a person on a g-f diet needs to increase their fiber from other sources because they are no longer eating some of the grains that are primary in the u.s. diet.
    Currently, it is hypothesized that gluten intolerance is one of the triggers for gall bladder issues, some thyroid problems, and some people's diabetes. Definitely worth exploring because it reduces the inflammation in our digestive systems and allows our intestines to better digest and use nutrients that we could not otherwise process.
    I'm with Jayabee on this one…Dr. Oz was way off this time around.

    I really don't have a lot of respect for Oz. Some of the things he says need to be taken with not a grain but a whole boatload of salt. Always check out what his recommendations are before you follow them.
