Avoid Diabetes with More Protein and More Fibre

"In total, these combined study results showed that dietary fibre can decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 19%, and that cereal fibre and insoluble fibre (as found in unprocessed wheat, for example) can lower the risk by 23% and 25%, respectively."

Gut Microbiota Networks May Influence Autoimmune Processes in Type 1 Diabetes

"The interactions of the gut microbiota in children with typical diabetes autoantibodies differ from that in healthy children. The fact that these differences already exist before antibodies are detectable in the blood adds to the growing evidence that microbial DNA, the so-called microbiome, may be involved in the development of autoimmune processes."
