The Gut Microbiome-Diabetes Connection

Patricia Davidson, DCN, RDN, CDE, LDN, FAND

Current research points to a correlation between gut health and diabetes and yet most health professionals are unfamiliar with applications to clinical care. There are a number of dietary and lifestyle factors that can lead to an alteration in gut flora, also known as the microbiome.  Join our webinar to learn about the critical role gut flora plays in affecting insulin sensitivity, insulin resistance, and alterations in the immune response. Effective nutritional strategies for improving and maintaining gut health will also be presented. Participants will leave the webinar better informed on how dietary factors affecting the gut microbiome may be considered in providing clinical care and patient counseling.
