Obesity and COVID, Is There an Increased Risk?

Jennifer Morzier August 17, 2020

Not all of us are equal in the face of the complications that COVID-19 can cause. It is well known that the elderly, but also those with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or kidney failure and cardiovascular disease are more vulnerable.

In addition, a growing number of studies tend to show that people with obesity are at greater risk of developing severe complications when affected by COVID-19 regardless of their age.

Also, obese people are more vulnerable to certain viruses, as we have seen with influenza, H1N1 and other respiratory viruses.

Fructans and the Low-FODMAP Diet

Jennifer Morzier August 11, 2020 , ,

If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you must have already heard of the low-FODMAP* diet. This diet is divided into three phases. First of all there is the elimination phase during which one removes from their diet, for 2 to 6 weeks, the 6 families of carbohydrates (Fructans, Lactose, GOS, Fructose, Mannitol and Sorbitol) which can often be the cause of digestive discomfort. Then, when the symptoms have disappeared, comes the approximately 7 weeks reintroduction phase. The goal is to test your personal tolerance to the different families of FODMAPs. To do this, every week you reintroduce a food, per FODMAP family, to find out to which family your digestive system reacts to. Once the culprits are identified, comes the maintenance phase during which you exclude from your diet the families that are causing digestive symptoms only.

Today we will focus our attention on a family of FODMAPs in particular called “fructans”.
