AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Can we use precision nutrition to create microbiomes to ameliorate healthy gut to eliminate GI disorders and use of antibiotics?

Use food sensitivity testing- blood, saliva, stool samples. Track food, stool types and compare to food sensitivities. Eliminate sensitive foods from diet and track. Determine additions to diet to rebuild healthy microbiomes in the gut e.g. supplements, vitamins, probiotics or stool transplants, eliminate use of antibiotics. The goal would be to create individualized nutritional plans to improve gut health, lose weight, and decrease use of antibiotics to treat GI disorders/disease.
