Increased intestinal permeability as a cause of fluctuating postprandial blood glucose levels in Type 1 diabetic patients.
This article really reminds us of (or should wake others up to…) the importance of the GI tract to every other system and every other disease. Increased intestinal permeability will allow larger molecules to enter into the body and increase the antigenic load that the immune system and liver have to deal with. Restoring permeability can be done with careful attention to diet, avoidance of common allergens, probiotics and soluble fiber intake. I’m sure the info in this article will also pertain to Type 2 diabetics as well.
