Expo Hall Briefing: Personalized Nutrition Based on Gut Microbiome and Other Individual Data

Monday, October 28
11:45 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: Expo Hall E

Accumulating evidence supports a causal role for the human gut microbiome in obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, and numerous other conditions, including cancer. Here, the presenter will review research on the role of the human microbiome in health and disease, specifically pre-diabetes, aimed at developing personalized approaches that combine human genetics, microbiome, and nutrition. They will show that by selecting foods that align with our unique microbiome we can manage our individual glycemic responses to effectively manage blood sugar levels and bring those with prediabetes back into a healthy A1c range.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the science behind a predictive and individualized glycemic control solution
  • Explain how the science and predicted glycemic response is applied in practice
  • Discuss the positive potential health outcomes for people living with diabetes
