The Gut Microbiome: Taking A Nutritional Approach to Modify Disease

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Summarize the effects of antibiotics on gut microbiota, its metabolic byproducts, and intestinal health
  2. Define targeted efforts to maintain gut health and mitigate intestinal pathogenic bacteria colonization induced by antibiotic therapy
  3. Describe whether gut microbiome composition predicts low FODMAP diet efficacy in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  4. Determine whether a low FODMAP diet alters gut microbiome composition and/ or metabolite profiles in those with IBS
  5. Identify the role of the fecal microbiome in IBD
  6. Describe how diet changes the fecal microbiome
