Bacteria Treatment Reduces Insulin Resistance, May Protect Against Diabetes

Researchers led by Hiroshi Ohno, MD, PhD, at the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences (IMS) in Japan have discovered a type of gut bacteria that might help improve insulin resistance, and thus protect against the development of obesity and type-2 diabetes. The study, published August 30, 2023 in Nature, involved genetic and metabolic analysis of human fecal microbiomes and then corroborating experiments in obese mice. The open-access article is titled “Gut Microbial Carbohydrate Metabolism Contributes to Insulin Resistance.”
