Diabetes & Gut Health


Diabetes & Gut Health
Bacteria in your digestive system may play an important role in the development of diabetes!

Did you know that 25.8 million children and adults in the US have diabetes? That is 8.3% of the population. WOW! That's a lot of people.

More surprising was the number of people who are pre-diabetic - 79 million people. I find these statistics pretty shocking.

The current research has found a causal link between diabetes, intestinal permeability, and gut bacteria.

There are also external stressors, besides your diet, that affect the bacteria in our gut and have been linked to diabetes such as:

  • Antibiotic use
  • Environmental toxins
  • Common prescription medications

These external stressors can do a lot of damage to the lining of your gut and affect the gut bacteria.

The good bacteria in the gut helps us to digest our food and produce specific vitamins, such as biotin and vitamin K. Scientists are discovering how influential this environment is.

  • The right gut bacteria can protect and nurture the lining of the digestive tract.
  • The wrong gut bacteria can inflame the digestive tract.
  • The digestive tract is a barrier system meant to protect us from the external environment.

No wonder researchers have made a connection between a permeable gut lining and the diagnosis of diabetes.

So what is a person to do?
