Carbohydrate restriction in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus by METABOLICA MED

Carbohydrate restriction in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus by METABOLICA MED

According to the United States center for Disease Control and Prevention, 85% of the diabetic patients are overweight and 55% are obese [1]. Due to the number of overweight/obese individuals increasing, the World Health Organization estimates that approximately 366 million people will have diabetes by the year 2030 [1]. This is of great concern, and can also be an indication that current practices, including dietary practices to prevent Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) are not effective enough to lower these figures. It is my opinion that current practices are focused on the management of T2DM and not as much the prevention thereof. Practices to prevent lifestyle diseases such as T2DM may include healthy eating, exercise, proper stress management, etc.

Can Healthy Gut Microbiomes help control blood sugar levels? By METABOLICA MED

Can Healthy Gut Microbiomes help control blood sugar levels? By METABOLICA MED

The gut microbiome, as defined by molecular biologist Joshua Lederberg, consists of all the microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The microorganisms include bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and fungi and their collective genetic material. The gut microbiota consists of all the bacteria, pathogenic and commensal, residing in the GIT. The gut microbiota has been explored for potential interactions between the microbe and host which could affect immunity, metabolism, and neuroendocrine responses. The gut microbiota plays an important role in nutrient and mineral absorption, synthesis of enzymes, vitamins and amino acids, and the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).

Celiac disease vs Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity by METABOLICA MED

Celiac disease vs Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity by METABOLICA MED

Celiac disease: is an immune-mediated disease in which people cannot eat gluten. If you have celiac disease, and you eat gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. It results in the flattening of the finger-like villi in the small intestine resulting in maldigestion and malabsorption of nutrients.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.

The Food & Training Diary of a Wannabe "Glama" Mom

The Food & Training Diary of a Wannabe "Glama" Mom

I am a Mom, in her late thirties, of two rather rambunctious young boys. One morning I woke up and realised my muscle tone had gone from reasonable to jelly and my clothing only fit me as my favourite items had politely stretched to accommodate my expanding flesh. No amount of tanning, fake or real, was going to salvage this situation.
