The idea of a universal diet for everyone is beginning to be considered as a simplistic approach, as it does not take into account each person’s unique nature in relation to a range of dimensions, including metabolism and microbiome. That is why the scientific community has suggested moving from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to diet to an integrated personalized treatment approach.…

Obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) have been associated with alterations in the gut microbiome. Given that both conditions are commonly manifested together and that ruling out the impact of external confounding factors in microbiome variation is a challenge, scientists struggle with teasing out gut microbiome hallmarks that uniquely characterize each of the two conditions. Louise Thingholm from Kiel University…

The second phase of the 10-year National Institutes of Health-funded Human Microbiome Project, the Integrative Human Microbiome Project, has recently been completed and provides a useful repository of microbiome-related data, tools and protocols for the research community. The two studies featured in this post have characterized host-microbiome interactions through longitudinal sampling in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) and prediabetes. Although some…

The existing evidence about a different gut microbiota composition between healthy and obese or type 2 diabetic patients has led scientists to study the role of gut microbes in the onset and development of metabolic diseases. Several mechanisms by which the gut microbiota may interfere with energy metabolism are currently being explored, though it is not fully understood how the…
