Assessing and treating the microbiome – a case-based and clinical approach by Dr. Linda Toresson

June 13, 2023

Presented by Dr. Linda Toresson

This presentation will provide a critically focused overview of gut microbiome composition and how it affects and is affected by host health and disease. It will discuss interpretation and misinterpretation of fecal tests to assess the intestinal microbiome and the built-in redundancy of the microbiome that allows continued functionality, despite minor shifts in microbial diversity. Other topics in this webinar will include how the gut microbiome plays a role beyond food digestion, such as in SCFA production, bile acid conversion, and dysbiosis as cause or effect of disease, as well as rational use of antibiotics.
