Fish Reduces The Risk Of Heart Disease For Type 2 Diabetics

Jul 3, 2008
We have often heard about the health benefits that result from eating fish and other foods rich in Omega-3 oils. Fish is one of the riches sources of foods with Omega-3 oils, but there are also other foods such as nuts. These foods help maintain the health of individuals and in some cases prevents various types of diseases. You may have heard that eating fish is great for developing an unborn child's brain because of the Omega-3 oils. Of particular importance to persons with diabetes and persons with a family history of diabetes is that there are many positive findings in various studies that are attributable to Omega-3 oils. In one study the Journal of the American Medical Association has reported that can cut the chance of a risk of developing type-1 diabetes by about 55%. In another study conducted in Norway the same relationship was found.

Other studies have found that there is a direct relationship between the consumption of fish an fish oils and the risk of coronary heart disease and also sudden cardiac death. In a study at the Harvard Medical School it was found that women with type 2 diabetes that consumed fish once a week had a 40% lower risk of coronary heart disease than women that consumed fish only once a month. Eating fish 5 times a per weekend reduced the risk of coronary heart disease by 64% and the risk of death by 52%. The only type of seafood that showed a beneficial effect in this study mortality was dark meat fish, mackerel, salmon, sardines, bluefish, swordfish, shrimp, lobster, and scallops. Even though these studies indicate great benefit from consuming these fish, some fish should not be regularly eaten. Swordfish, bluefish, and king mackerel have high levels of mercury and should not be regularly eaten and should never be eaten by pregnant women.

One of the reasons by type II diabetes leads to coronary heart disease is because of high blood levels of triglycerides. Many studies have found that the triglycerides are lowed by the fish oils. In studies it has been shown that even though the fish oils do not affect the glucose levels the triglyceride levels were reduced substantially. In one study in Norway it was found that fish oil also reduced blood pressure in people with hypertension. High blood pressure, hypertension, and high cholesterol is often found in people with type 2 diabetes.

Based on these findings researchers recommend a diet which includes consumption of sea food for all type 2 diabetics. Seafood should be consumed two to three times a week or in the alternative type 2 diabetics can substitute a sea food meal with fish oil in capsules form in the amounts of two to three grams per day.
