CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The gut microbiota has been linked to many conditions far beyond the gastrointestinal tract, but a direct cause-effect relationship is difficult to prove in most cases.

The webinar will cover:
  • The role of microbiota in relation to metabolism
  • How changes in microbial activity might be connected to the development of diabetes 
  • The effect of diet on microbiota 
  • Whether nutritional modification can target diabetes directly

WATCH THE WEBINAR TO

GAIN CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:
  • The metabolic effects of gut-derived short-chain fatty acids
  • The effects of carbohydrate, fat and protein on the gut microbiota
BE AWARE OF:
  • The factors that affect the composition of the microbiota in health and in diabetes
  • The current evidence linking prebiotics to glucose control in type 2 diabetes
  • The concept of responders and non-responders in the microbiota response to dietary interventions
BE ABLE TO:
  • Predict how diets of different macronutrient composition (for example plant-based, ketogenic, VLED) might impact on the gut microbiota

Please note, webinars are not intended to be used by non-medically qualified individuals or as a substitute for, or basis for any medical treatment.

Dr Denise Robertson (RNutr)
Reader in Nutritional Physiology, Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Surrey, Guildford

Denise Robertson’s research interests involve the complex interplay between the gastrointestinal tract and whole-body physiology, in both health and diseased states – with the gut now implicated as both the cause and treatment for many conditions such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
