Celiac & Diabetes

by Dr Alexandra Reimann, ND on 10/15/17

It is well-known that type 1 diabetes and celiac disease co-occur in individuals and families, and a study appearing in the journal Pediatrics attempts to clarify why. F Perry Wilson, MD, reports the real culprit may not lie in our genes, but in our environment.The study showed that while type 1 diabetes predisposed kids to celiac disease, the reverse was not true. Kids with celiac disease were no more likely to subsequently develop type 1 diabetes. Analyst: F. Perry Wilson, MD, MSCE by F.

Vitamin E- The Master Anti-Oxidant

by Dr Alexandra Reimann, ND on 10/01/17

The Master Fat-Soluble Antioxidant

Vitamin E is an antioxidant, specifically a fat-soluble antioxidant. Why is this important? Our cell membranes and the lipoproteins that shuttle cholesterol around our bodies are made primarily of fats. Vitamin E protects these fats from oxidation; in other words, vitamin E protects our cells from going rancid (You know how oils can go rancid? The fats in our cells can too.) This means that the cell membranes begin to deteriorate and can no longer function properly. Healthy cells are required for healthy bodies and vitamin E has a very specific job of keeping our cells healthy. It is the major fat-soluble antioxidant in the human body and is critical for the optimal functioning of all cells. This has wide implications for cardiovascular health, cognitive health, immunity, and more.
