We know that inflammation is involved in Alzheimer’s and other neurological conditions. Diet can contribute to inflammation, but specifically the interconnectivity of gluten and inflammation and diet does not have much data on it. Hopefully future studies will support the theory. There have been some well performed randomized trials of the Dash and Mediterranean diets in which they demonstrated that markers of inflammation were decreased by consuming those diets. So yes, having a higher quality diet, with more of the nutrients that are known to be good for health and decreasing the components like saturated fats and sugars and salts in our diet, does lower inflammation.
Is there any current information on inflammation in Alzheimer’s as it relates to food such as gluten and dairy?
