Session Summary :
With the prevalence of cardio- metabolic disorders reaching pandemic proportions, the search for modifiable causative factors has intensified. One such potential factor is the vast microbial community inhabiting the human gastrointestinal track,the gut microbiota. For the past decade evidence has accumulated showing the association of distinct changes in gut microbiota composition and function with obesity type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
This webinar will explore the relationship between the gut barrier function ad obesity metabolic syndrome and diabetes. We will look at current research and look at practical methods which can heal gut barrier function and balance the microbiota in order to shift metabolism towards health.
