Is wheat really THAT bad?

Because it has become such a frequent item in everyday meals, suggesting that something so commonplace must be fine, people often ask: Is wheat really that bad? Let’s therefore catalog the health conditions that are associated with wheat consumption. Health conditions we know with 100% certainty are caused by consumption of wheat and related grains: Celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, cerebellar ataxia, “idiopathic” peripheral neuropathy, temporal lobe seizures, gluten encephalopathy, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, tooth decay Health conditions worsened by consumption of wheat and related grains: Many if not most autoimmune conditions, type 2 diabetes, overweight/obesity, cataracts, fatty liver, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, Alzheimer’s dementia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, osteoarthritis, eczema, eating disorders, asthma, eosinophilic esophagitis, autoimmune gastritis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, microscopic colitis, polycystic ovary syndrome, infertility, multiple miscarriages, reflux esophagitis, esophageal spasm, Barrett’s esophagus Health conditions suspected to be caused or worsened by wheat and related grains: Plantar fasciitis, calcium oxalate kidney stones, IgA nephropathy, gallstones, intestinal fungal overgrowth, gastrointestinal cancers, chronic sinusitis, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, male gynecoma...

ConclusionSGLT2 inhibitors have relatively safe profiles and can efficiently decrease HbA1c as well as fasting and postprandial glucose levels. Furthermore, SGLT2 inhibitors administrations are not associated with significant hypoglycemic episodes or weight gain. Thus, combination of SGLT2 inhibitors and other less harmful anti-diabetic medicines could be considered if there is no any contraindication.

ConclusionDiabetes was correlated significantly with dyslipidemia and atherogenic risk in parallel with an increase in IFN-γ production and hematological inflammatory biomarkers; leukocytes, neutrophil/lymphocyte and platelet/lymphocyte ratios, MPV and PDW values. The amelioration in inflammatory biomarkers was associated with improvement in glycemic control.

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between serum adiponectin and resistin with MetS criteria among Temiar subtribe in Kuala Betis.Materials and methodsThis cross sectional study involved 123 subjects from Temiar subtribe in Kuala Betis, Gua Musang, Kelantan. MetS criteria were measured according to standard protocol by modified National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III) guideline. Anthropometric and biochemical measurements were performed including serum adiponectin and resistin for every study subjects.ResultsSerum adiponectin was significantly lower in MetS subjects (7.9...

In conclusion, the spectrum of autoimmune reactions induced by immune-checkpoint inhibitors should be restricted in the near future to only these specific favorable autoimmune mechanisms. In this way, the unnecessary autoimmune reactions/autoaggressions could be avoided (a better quality of life), and treatment specificity and efficiency should increase (a higher response rate for melanoma therapy).
