The microbiome is an important modulator and contributor to presence of disease as well as severity and recovery. Nutrient intake can affect the microbiome. In this webinar, the speakers will provide advanced information for clinicians in the evolving world of the microbiome. This webinar is targeted at an advanced level and builds upon webinars that were offered in 2016 and 2017. Recordings of those webinars are available in ASPEN’s eLearning Center and can provide a foundation of knowledge prior to this webinar. Modifying the Gut Microbiota: Clinical Applications and Current Evidence and Microbiome: Research Update and Cutting Edge Applications

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize the effects of antibiotics on gut microbiota, its metabolic byproducts, and intestinal health
  • Define targeted efforts to maintain gut health and mitigate intestinal pathogenic bacteria colonization induced by antibiotic therapy as well as SIBO
  • Describe whether gut microbiome composition predicts low FODMAP diet efficacy in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Determine whether a low FODMAP diet alters gut microbiome composition and/or metabolite profiles in those with IBS
