Nutrition and Gut Microbiome in Hispanics with Diabetes

December 1, 2021

Natalie Carabeo, MS, RDN, LDN and Sylvia Klinger, DBA, MS, RD

The gut microbiome is composed of the microbes in the gastrointestinal tract. Dysbiosis is a dysregulated microbiota which are common to many diseases including obesity, diabetes, colon cancer, and IBD. Changes that occur in the gut microbiome are linked to the gut health such as the metabolic syndrome and its prevalence in the Latino community. There is a link between diet and differences in comparison to the standard American diet. Synbiotics refer to food ingredients or dietary supplements combining probiotics and prebiotics in a form of synergism, for example, Bifidobacterium with fructooligosaccharides (FOS) or inulin to help them thrive. There is strong scientific evidence for the use of a synbiotic formulated diet to improve gut health and assist with glycemic management in Latinos with type 2 diabetes.

February 6, 2020

Catherine M. McDonald, PhD, RDN, CSP and Laura Padula, MS, RD, CSP, LDN

Recent developments in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) treatment have required re-thinking nutrition care for individuals with CF. Improved treatment options have increased longevity for many patients, but it is unclear how they may affect nutrition status and how nutrition status affects lung function and other outcomes. RDNs must adapt nutrition counseling to accommodate a population facing longer lives and higher risk of chronic diseases, but little evidence-based information is available to guide practitioners. Speakers will describe results from systematic reviews conducted by the Evidence Analysis Center examining appropriate nutrition assessment measures, the relationship between diet and nutrition-related outcomes, and the relationship between nutrition status and hard outcomes for patients with CF.
