Can Your Microbiome Tell You What to Eat?

Jairam K P Vanamala et al. Cell Metab.

Abstract

Prospects for using the gut microbiome for personalized medicine are substantial since the gut microbiome is known to modulate metabolism and varies substantially among individuals. Zeevi et al. (2015) demonstrate that the gut microbiota can be used to predict individualized blood glucose responses to particular foods, which differ between individuals.
