Relationship Between Visceral Fat And Inflammation

Recent statistics indicate that tendonitis has seen an exponential rise in prevalence, with estimates stating that up to 90% of patients will experience some form of tendon pain at some point during their lives.

Tendon pain can be a real bummer. Not only does it make you feel inadequate, but studies have even suggested that eating right could reduce the likelihood of tendon pain by up to 25%!

So if I told you that diet could actually reduce this risk for you – would you believe me?

If the patient’s weight has increased since they first experienced tendon pain, it would be wise to have some tests done to check their cholesterol level, determine if they are insulin resistant or sensitive, and rule out type 2 diabetes.
