Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Explains Why an Anti-Inflammatory Diet Alone May Not Be Enough to Combat Common Diseases

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - August 17, 2016) - As scientific research evolves, several mainstream diets have gone beyond the mere goal of weight loss to offer dietary solutions which combat a very pressing health concern that is at the root of obesity and many other common diseases. This growing health concern is referred to as chronic inflammation within the body and occurs as a result of diets which are high in carbohydrates, sugars, processed foods, chemicals, preservatives and gluten. Diet plans such as The Ketogenic Diet (keto diet), the Atkins Diet and the Mediterranean Diet all seek to eliminate these inflammation causing foods from the diet for ultimate fat burning as well as to reduce the risks for several illnesses which include but are not limited to:

  • Degenerative diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's)
  • Cardiovascular diseases (Congenital Heart Disease, Coronary Artery Disease)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriasis
  • Chronic Pain
  • Inflammation of the bowel (Colitis, Crohn's Disease)

Though maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet in the long term does in fact promote sustainable weight loss and will significantly improve one's health, a recent study shows that for people with existing metabolic syndrome (MetS) the cardio protective effect of the anti-inflammatory diet was negated. Dr. Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc -- a nationally recognized medical weight loss program, states that, "This is a fairly significant finding as the anti-inflammatory diet is often recommended for people with MetS as a way to improve general health markets, inflammation and to lose weight." Dr. Rao continues, "Given that MetS is a cluster of signs ranging from elevated triglycerides (and poor lipid balance in general), elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting glucose and an excess of body fat, it may be that for individuals with Mets, the anti-inflammatory diet alone isn't enough be cardio protective or that the degree of inflammation reduction conferred by the diet cannot sufficiently decrease cardiovascular inflammatory markers."

Due to this, Diet Doc's team of medical researchers have formulated new, specific plans to address metabolic syndrome in addition to inflammation, through dietary modifications which may improve lipid balance, fasting glucose, blood pressure and waist to hip ratio. "Instead of a diet that is merely focused on inflammation -- which the research is suggesting is insufficient anyway to provide long term benefit, Diet Doc creates custom diets which improve all of the risks associated with MetS, which may be the source of the inflammation to begin with," states Dr. Rao. Diet Doc believes that in taking a more hands on, multi focused approach, that their program is able to create long term health benefits along with reducing risk factors right from the start.
