    Diabetes type 2 connection to Celiac Spru

    With the medical advice shared on WebMd.com, how come the topic of the connection between diabetes and celiac has not come up. Instead I continue to see the encouragement of eating wheat, whole grain wheat, and other whole grains. I would like to see a connection with the Celiac foundation and see a study done. Between diabetes sufferers and how many of them suffer from a intolerance of wheat! But so far I have only seen that kind of concern from the Celiac sufferers side.

    RE: Diabetes type 2 connection to Celiac Spru

    ...Because we're too busy talking about the connection between cancer and diabetes...
    and, alzheimer's and diabetes...
    and depression and diabetes...
    and kidney disease and diabetes...
    and, cardiovascular disease, stroke and heart attack and diabetes...

    But, what about the connection between Metabolic Syndrome and diabetes? How about the connection between high blood pressure, high triglycerides and obesity to diabetes?

    The truth is, the common link (to all the above) is simple. Chronic inflammation links them all. In other words, chronic inflammation begets auto-immune disease. It's your body saying, "Well, if you're not interested (in relieving the inflammation), well, guess what? I'm going to start attacking myself!"


    At the core of much chronic inflammation are basic food insensitivities, aka, "allergies" And, the reason for this is even simpler, still: When hungry (or too "busy"), people don't give a thought (or damn) what they shovel down their throats.

    The bottomline: What you eat matters a helluva a lot. Wheat. Plus, everything else.

    PS: Most people would rather die eating bread and cereal on their very last day vs go without. Not, all. Just, most.
