People on pro-inflammatory diet were more likely to develop metabolic syndrome
Doctors hope to establish a standard measurement for inflammatory foods in the diet. The Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII) will provide a common scoring system to help people reduce the amount of pro-inflammatory foods and increase anti-inflammatory foods in the diet. In this study, 3,726 participants with a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome reported their diets and medications if any. People who reported eating a pro-inflammatory diet were more likely to develop metabolic syndrome, with higher DII scores increasing the chances of having elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure, triglycerides, and lower levels of HDL, the good cholesterol.
