The Wheat Belly lifestyle begins with elimination of the worst and most dominant of all grains in the diet, semi-dwarf wheat products, followed by elimination of its closely-related brethren in other grains. This alone is a powerful start in reversing the 200-some diseases of autoimmunity. We now know that the gliadin protein of wheat and related proteins in other grains trigger increased intestinal permeability that initiates the process, as highly inflammatory compounds, such as lipopolysaccharide from bacterial cell walls, are permitted entry into the body. We also know that gliadin itself gains entry into the bloo...

This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and to investigate HRQoL and the prevalence of hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), obesity and dyslipidemia. In a cross‐sectional design, patients d iagnosed with plaque psoriasis answered an interview and standardized questionnaires (Dermatology Life Quality Index questionnaire [DLQI], 36‐Item Short Form Health Survey [SF‐36] and EuroQol Five‐Dimension Questionnaire Three‐Level version [EQ‐5D‐3L]). Physical examination and several t ests to assess desired outcomes were performed by a dermatologis...

CONCLUSIONS: The available literature does not unequivocally support common pathophysiological denominators in psoriasis and T2D. Well-designed clinical studies are needed to expose potential diabetogenic defects in the glucose metabolism in patients with psoriasis. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
