How Your Gut Microbiome May Affect Diabetes

How Your Gut Microbiome May Affect Diabetes

How Your Gut Microbiome May Affect Diabetes
Is your gut health the answer to better insulin function and blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes?
Experts say the gut microbiome is one factor among many that can play a role in diabetes risk.
If youve been diagnosed withprediabetesor type 2 diabetes, your doctor has likely told you to focus on healthy eating habits and exercise to help prevent the development, or progression, of the disease. Chances are youve probably also heard that caring for your gut health is the X factor that may decrease the risk of developing full-blown type 2 diabetes . Perhaps you also have heard that it could even reverse the disease as well. So, whats the truth?
Your gutmicrobiomeis the collection of microbes in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract that may impact your immunity, your ability to extract energy from food, your metabolism, and more. They play an important role in your health but not the only role. If you look at diabetes and obesity, over 600 million people in the world are obese, and over 400 million have diabetes. There are multiple factors implicated in both diseases, including genetics, culture, environment, and lifestyle, says RuchiMathur, MD , director of Anna and Max Webb & Family Diabetes Outpatient Treatment and Education Centerat Cedars-Sinai inLosAngeles. Gut microbes may play one piece of a very large and complicated puzzle, but theyre not the be-all and end-all, she says.
Even what we know about the gutmicrobiome is still in the early stages. We know disruptions in the gutmicrobiometouch almost all diseases we see in m Continue reading

'The last team I played on would have been England Youths with Lee Westwood'

'The last team I played on would have been England Youths with Lee Westwood'

Historically Great Britain & Ireland have been the whipping boys in the PGA Cup as the bigger and better American club pros would routinely give us a bit of a going over.
It’s no great surprise given the pool of players that each team has to pick from. As the GB&I skipper told us in the preview ‘we start with 460 players at regionals, they start off at 4,000’.
The last time GB&I won back-to-back matches it was 1984, since then we have only come out on top twice which included two years ago at CordeValle. There Niall Kearney, in the last singles out on Sunday, got up and down from behind the 18th green to edge the visitors over the line. Never before, the matches began in 1973, had the Americans lost at home.
Now we have won two on the trot again thanks to an incredible effort in the singles last weekend. On Saturday night the visitors had just won three of the four foursomes to get back within a point, the following day they won just one of the 10 singles – GB&I ran out 16-10 winners.
At the heart of the home effort was Robert Coles. The 45-year-old, from Maylands Golf & Country Club in Essex, knew he would be playing in the PGA Cup last October. The European Tour veteran finished second behind Matthew Cort at the PGA Play-Offs at Saunton, and ahead of Greig Hutcheon of Scotland, as the three of them booked their places in Albert MacKenzie’s side for Foxhills.
Coles wouldn’t say as much, he’s far too modest and self-deprecating, but his efforts in Surrey were pretty heroic. After a disappointing start he then won his next four matches, being one of three playe Continue reading
