More and more evidences show that diet has an effect on low-grade chronic inflammation caused by obesity and related changes in chronic non-communicable diseases
Recently, in a new study, researchers have determined the changes in body composition, cardiometabolic and inflammatory conditions of obese participants after 24 weeks of dietary intervention based on an anti-inflammatory diet that reduces energy.
The relationship between changes and changes in the inflammatory potential of the diet
The researchers evaluated the anthropometric and body composition parameters of 81 participants (average age 43, 74 women)
Use blood glucose and blood lipid status to determine metabolic status, and use high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), interleukin 6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) concentrations to determine cardiometabolic index and inflammation status
Use the Dietary Inflammation Index (DII®) to assess the inflammatory potential of the diet
The results showed that the intervention of the anti-inflammatory diet resulted in a significant reduction in body weight and visceral adipose tissue, and improved cardiometabolic and inflammatory status of participants
It is proved that anti-inflammatory diet can effectively manage obesity
In summary, the research data can advance current scientific knowledge in the field of inflammation and diet, provide guidance for obesity management, and find its application in routine clinical practice
