A Question of Balance: How the Gut Microbiome Influences Diabetes

The presence of beneficial or detrimental microbes pulls the host toward health or disease.

Diabetes affects approximately 463 million adults worldwide, and that number is on the rise. Epidemiologists have observed changes in the gut microbiota of diabetic patients. As more information about the gut microbiome is uncovered, researchers delve further into its connection to type 2 diabetes by exploring microbe-induced metabolic and inflammatory changes.
