Inflammatory diseases and fatigue are constant complaints among the aging population. As medical researchers continually work on this problem, new information has been discovered regarding diets and which work best to reduce inflammation and fatigue symptoms.

 

The expectation during tests of low-fat versus low-carb diets was that the low fat diet would improve health conditions – but in reality, just the opposite was found to be true. Acute, positive changes were found in the fatty acid composition and inflammation when the persons consumed a very low carbohydrate diet.

The
low-fat diet group actually experienced an increase in saturated fat in the
bloodstream, indicating that a low fat diet can lead to trouble with the
metabolic system and overall health.

 

This
unexpected result came as a shock to researchers and made them rethink the
low-fat diet recommendation that had been perpetuated for years. Now, new
research about low-carb versus low-fat diet plans indicates that the low-carb
approach improves each area of metabolic syndrome.

 

Metabolic
syndrome can cause obesity, high blood sugar (leading to diabetes),
hypertension, high triglycerides and lower HDL (good) cholesterol leading to
heart disease and stroke.

 

The old
message to patients was to drastically cut down on fats, but now they realize
that a low-carbohydrate diet plan is a better way to live a health life and to
reduce inflammation and fatigue which often accompany the aging process.

 

One very
preventable disease with a low-carb diet is “hyperinsulinemia” which causes
diabetes and obesity – and leads to a plethora of other very preventable
diseases that involve inflammation and fatigue.

 

The
low-carb diet improves the blood lipids (cholesterol) and the nutritional
approach of the diet plan can help lose unwanted pounds. One major factor found
in the importance of adhering to a low carbohydrate diet as you age is in the
stimulation of insulin secretion.

 

This
process helps reduce and manage many diseases associated with the dreaded
metabolic syndrome. What your body does with the food you consume is key to the
low-carb diet approach and the latest studies show that your body will have
more control with low carbohydrates rather than low-fat consumption.

 

Ask your
healthcare provider about a low-carb diet approach if you’re experiencing some
of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome. A simple blood test by your healthcare
provider can quickly discern whether you might benefit from the low-carb diet
plan.
