The Relationship Between Microbiome, Obesity, and Type 2 Diabetes

The health of our gut microbiome is the health of our bodies. From immune function to brain health to mental wellbeing, our microbiome is crucial for longevity. A recent study out of UCSD School of Medicine investigated how diet and feeding patterns impact the intestinal microbes of mice. They were specifically looking at the link of time restricted eating to obesity and type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that there was a significant influence “of diet and time restricted feeding patterns in maintaining a healthy gut microbiome.” In fact, they found that diet-induced obesity and the absence of time restricted eating “resulted in disruptions to gut microbiome rhythms… In other words, the mice became fat and unhealthy.”
