cardiovascular disease at the start of the study. After
14 years, slightly more than 2,500 cases of type
2 diabetes were documented. This is 3% out of the
test subjects that developed diabetes type II.

animal-based foods such as butter or hamburger) or mono
unsaturated fats (found in nuts, fruits, vegetables, and

as decrease glucose and insulin levels. Added
Diverticulitis - What
is it and What can be done about
is a UK nutritionist who specialises in using natural
foods to treat such problems. He says it is correct that
you need a high fibre diet (this is what most sufferers
are told) but stresses that there is an even greater
risk to your health if you eat the wrong type of fibre.
You need, for example, to avoid all the mucous-forming
grains, including wheat, rye, and dairy, since these
will exacerbate the problem. Instead, look for fibre

and from oatbran and sprouted grains.
disease is the usually the result of a long, slow
build-up of dietary mucous against the walls of the
intestine. Over time, these deposits solidify, narrowing
the passage through which the faeces must pass. The
intestine responds by trying to expand to maintain
normal functioning and it is in the weakened areas of
the intestinal walls that the first diverticular pouches
appear. A clever nutritionist will know how you can
dissolve this build-up of waste matter without resorting
to more invasive techniques such as colonic irrigation,
where, if the intestinal wall has been damaged, there
could be further risks.
