A severely calorie-restricted diet can change the composition of the gut microbiome, i.e. the composition of microorganisms in the human gut. Gut bacteria help regulate the calories a person takes in. These research findings from studies of low-calorie diets are also of interest in relation to obesity and diabetes and are discussed in the broadcast with moderator Iris Budowsky.
Dr. Reiner Jumpertz-von Schwarzenberg has been researching food absorption for over ten years. He works at the DZD Institute for Diabetes Research and Metabolic Diseases of Helmholtz Zentrum München at Eberhard-Karls-University Tübingen and focuses on the microbiome in metabolic diseases.
