Untangling the relationship between diet and visceral fat mass through blood metabolomics and gut microbiome profiling

Abstract:

Higher visceral fat mass (VFM) is associated with an increased risk for developing cardio-metabolic diseases. The mechanisms by which an unhealthy diet pattern may influence visceral fat (VF) development has yet to be examined through cutting-edge multi-omic methods. Therefore, our objective was to examine the dietary influences on VFM and identify gut microbiome and metabolite profiles that link food intakes to VFM.In 2218 twins with VFM, food intake and metabolomics data available we identi...
