9 Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance You Shouldn’t Ignore

Gluten is a group of proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley which can be really hard to digest for some category of people. There is a group of people having gluten intolerance, also known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Here are 9 symptoms showing that you might have this condition:

  1. When you eat something containing gluten you feel sick or cramping.
  2. You are super bloated.
  3. Your skin is dry, has acne or patches of eczema.
  4. You’re losing weight unintentionally.
  5. It’s hard for you to concentrate.
  6. You are depressed or feel down most of the time.
  7. You have problems with bowel movements.
  8. You have problems with memory.
  9. You feel really tired all the time.

A Simple Test for ASD Can Predict the Condition with 88% Accuracy

Last year a team of researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, US, developed a simple blood test for diagnosing ASD (autism spectrum disorder). At the present moment, a follow-up study confirms the original finding.

In this test, there is an algorithm that takes into account the presence and concentration of numerous chemicals in the blood associated with ASD.

To make the test more predictive, the scientists worked with children divided into several groups within the existing studies. Using the test, they found 154 aged from 2 5o 17 years.

Systems biologist and senior author Juergen Hahn says: “This is an approach that we would like to see move forward into clinical trials and ultimately into a commercially available test.” She also adds: “We were able to predict with 88% accuracy whether children have autism.”

People with Strong Social Relations Have Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

A new study from the Netherlands finds that socially isolated people are at greater risk to develop type 2 diabetes. Therefore, social relations might help prevent diabetes.social relations

For their study, a team of researchers from Maastricht University Medical Centre analyzed medical data from 2,861 adults aged from 40 to 75 years. They were participants in The Maastricht Study for genetic and environmental risk factors of developing type 2 diabetes. The scientists found that the participants who did not join in with club activities or associate with any social groups were 60% more likely to have prediabetes.

Lead study author Stephanie Brinkhues says: “We are the first to determine the association of a broad range of social network characteristics – such as social support, network size, or type of relationships – with different stages of type 2 diabetes. Our findings support the idea that resolving social isolation may help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.”

Study Explained Why You Should Separate Your Work and Personal Lives

According to a new study from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, employees who mix their professional and personal lives feel more emotionally exhausted and have the lower sense of well-being than people who maintain a clear separation between work and personal lives.personal lives

For the study, a team of researchers analyzed the data of 1,916 employees from German-speaking countries where about 50% worked least 40 hours per week.

Study co-author Ariane Wepfer of the Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Prevention Institute of the University of Zurich, says: “Employees who integrated work into their non-work life reported being more exhausted because they recovered less. This lack of recovery activities furthermore explains why people who integrate their work into the rest of their lives have a lower sense of well-being.”

5 Habits That Increase Risk of Diabetes

diabetesThe number of people who develop diabetes of the second type grows daily in the world.

The main reason for the development of diabetes mellitus is a violation of carbohydrate metabolism, caused by insufficiency of pancreatic hormone production of insulin hormone. Here we will describe which main habits that may lead to this disease. Especially, it’s worth to check for those who have diabetics in the family as already inherently predisposed to the disease.

1. Lack of sleep 

Studies of Japanese scientists have shown that lack of sleep creates comfortable conditions for increasing the content of fatty acids in the blood, which is a pre-diabetic condition.

2. Depression and stress

During many years of observation, scientists found that a high level of stress also leads to the onset of diabetes. German researchers, in particular, learned that serious stress, especially the one involving work, increases the risk of developing diabetes by 45%.

3. Simple carbohydrates in your diet

The body absorbs simple carbohydrates almost instantly, causing an attack of glycemia, that is, sharply increase the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood.

4. Excess fat in your diet

Almost all patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus are obese. As it turned out as a result of many years of research, the high level of fat in your food disrupts metabolic processes.

5. Sedentary lifestyle

Physical activity causes the consumption of glycogen, which, thanks to carbohydrates, is stored by the body in muscles, liver and other organs. The higher the physical activity, the higher the level of glycogen in the tissues, which leads to an increase in the person’s energy potential.
