Diet and dietary components are known to have a direct impact on the modifiable risk factors for autoimmune disease. Clinical trials of these diets demonstrated that including or excluding particular dietary components and modeling a diet based on whole food eating reduces intestinal dysbiosis, supports intestinal integrity, and modulates inflammation. In Part 1 of this article, the influence of diet as the major link underpinning the known modifiable risk factors for the development of digestive health-related autoimmune diseases was discussed. Part 1 also sketched the direct influence of diet and its components on gut microbial imbalance or dysbiosis, their effect on intestinal integrity and loss of control in preventing microbial and dietary antigens translocation, leading to systemic and intestinal inflammation. Diet and dietary components are known to have a direct impact either positively or negatively on the modifiable risk factors for autoimmune disease Fig.
Should you follow a Paleo gluten-free diet or a vegan diet? Should you pop omega-3 or turmeric supplements? About 23 million people in the United States who suffer from autoimmune diseases face these questions every day. The Internet is teeming with books, websites, and blogs offering advice on how to eat to prevent or treat autoimmune conditions. Unfortunately, much of it is based on hype and hope instead of solid scientific evidence. What Is Autoimmune Disease? Autoimmunity is the No. In a healthy immune system, this communication is clear and specific; the body can tell the difference between a foreigner and itself. But in autoimmune disease, the immune response is flawed, and the communication system breaks down. Autoimmune diseases can affect nearly every part of the body. And in type 1 diabetes, the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
