The Gut Microbiome and Cardiometabolic Health

Studies have linked inflammatory responses in the gut to a higher risk of developing cardiometabolic conditions such as cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). New research aims to test the hypothesis that diet modification can improve gut microbial composition and biosynthetic processes, which will, in turn, reduce inflammation and other biomarkers that are […]

The Influence of Gut Bacteria on Diabetes Drugs

Newly emerging research seeks to investigate the effect of gut microbiota on the efficacy of type 2 diabetes drugs, suggesting that the composition of gut bacteria may illuminate why certain diabetes medications work for some people—and not others. Estimates indicate that over 415 million people across the globe have type 2 diabetes, a statistic leading […]
