This week we have a fantastic hangout on Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes and Pre-diabetes, as they relate to the gastrointestinal tract. If you, a loved one, or a friend have one of these conditions, this hangout is a must to watch (we know, we are biased). In this broadcast we are going to cover the nuances of these conditions and a plethora of literature which supports the gastrointestinal tract as a key player in these conditions.
For some time it has been known that inflammation is associated with these conditions, yet the newest literature is showing that this inflammation is in part coming from the gastrointestinal tract. Even more interestingly, it has now been shown that this inflammation from the gastrointestinal tract, which is actually from pieces of bacteria that are floating around in our blood stream, lead to insulin resistance and eventually diabetes. More importantly, the literature is also demonstrating that this bacterial and inflammation problem in the gut can be corrected.
Please enjoy the hangout!
