Some news outlets are claiming a gluten-free diet promotes diabetes. Even science daily posted an article stating that Low Gluten Diets Linked To A Higher Risk Of Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes. You can trust Dr. Seamen to break up these myths!
From Dr. Seamen’s Post:
“The media and modern medicine seem to be confused by what gluten-free is all about and are convinced that going gluten-free increases one’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Of course, this notion is preposterous. Find out why in this video below.”
When it is suggested that you go gluten free by your healthcare provider, the idea is that you balance your diet well, cut out most forms of ADDED sugar, and that you eat REAL FOOD that is NOT PROCESSED. One problem we could possibly see with this mentality is that a lot of “gluten-free” items at the grocery store have added sugars and non-gluten-grains that are very easily digestible and carbohydrate heavy like gluten-free cook, gluten-free bread, gluten-free crackers, gluten-free ice cream, gluten-free pizza, gluten-free pasta, gluten-free sugar, gluten-free “insert not real food here”, gluten-free and so on!
