Inflammation Linked to Diabetes Risk

We don't mean to sound all pessimistic or discriminatory when we bring up the topic of belly fat and diabetes. We want to address this in a way that will help you to have a little more power over your health.

Opinions about what causes or contributes to diabetes are shifting to include a vigorous suspicion of inflammation. The article we linked to above mentions that inflammation may contribute to cancer, as well as accelerate the aging process. However, we want to point out that inflammation is also a culprit in Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, acne, vascular disease, and many other conditions. We suspect that inflammation will sometimes fall on the same list as LDL cholesterol and high blood pressure. Your doctor could be measuring your inflammation levels in the near future as an indicator of health.
