Chronic inflammation almost always lurks beneath the surface of diabetes and excess weight.
You can't see or feel it, but this type of inflammation increases the risk of coronary heart disease,
the leading cause of death among people with diabetes.
Processed sugars and other high-glycemic starches increase inflammation, just as they raise
blood sugar, according to an article in the March 2002 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Good news, though: Many foods have anti-inflammatory properties. Here are 11 of the best...
1. Salmon. Coldwater fish, including salmon, contain anti-inflammatory fats called omega-3s.
Wild salmon has more of these super-healthy fats than does farmed salmon.
Shopping tip: All salmon from Alaska is wild, whereas Atlantic salmon is usually farmed.
Herring, sardines, and tuna also contain omega-3s.
