Mayo study: Gluten-free diet may help prevent diabetes

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A new study just released by Mayo Clinic shows a gluten-free diet may help prevent Type 1 diabetes.

The research was published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE.

Researchers say mice that were fed a gluten-free diet had a dramatically reduced incidence of Type-1 diabetes.

According to researchers, the study suggests dietary interventions may be crucially important in affecting the likelihood of the development of the disease.

The study says the next step for researchers is to study on humans.

Tonight on KTTC NewsCenter at 10, Mike Sullivan looks into how Americans can eat well on a gluten-free diet.
