Emerging Integrative Approaches for Nutrition and Dietetics Practice
Exhibit Hall D
The gut microbiome, bacteria in the gut harnessing energy from food, may play a role in obesity and provide a causal link to metabolic syndrome. Current research in this field will be described and linked to obesity and other diseases. Fiber intake, vegan & omnivore patterns and their impact on the microbiome will be explored. Planned with The Weight Management DPG

Describe research in healthy adults linking dietary patterns (vegan vs omnivores) or feeding trials (altering fiber intake) to the gut microbiome and plasma metabolome in healthy volunteers

Explain causal links between microbiome, metabolic syndrome and disease

Discuss research linking microbiome and metabolome to obesity

Obesity and Weight Management
Room 332
This session will explore the role of nutrition assessment of severely obese hospitalized patients and discuss the metabolic risks associated with obesity. The new definition of malnutrition and its relation to the severely obese population will be explained. The session will discuss which nutritional parameters to monitor post bariatric surgery and highlight the clinical benefits and outcomes seen after bariatric surgery.

  • Discuss the assessment tools used to determine nutrition status in the obese patient and be able to define the new criteria of malnutrition as it relates to nutrition assessment in this population.
  • Identify the nutritional implications seen with bariatric surgery and identify clinical outcomes associated with this procedure.
  • Determine how bariatric surgical intervention can improve outcomes in the severely obese population and discuss the latest research used to improve nutritional parameters in this population.
