The reporter was informed on September 21 that the team of Xie Liwei, a researcher from the State Key Laboratory of Applied Microbiology in South China and the Institute of Microbiology, Guangdong Academy of Sciences, and Chen Hong and Sun Jia, professors of the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University, discovered the impact of low-carbohydrate diet (LCD) Determinants of weight loss
The research paper was published in the journal Microbial Spectroscopy
Globally, the number of overweight and obese people is increasing rapidly.
Obesity and its complications not only seriously affect the quality of life of individuals, but also bring heavy economic burdens to society and families
LCD is a dietary intervention model for weight loss treatment.
However, in different studies, the weight loss effects of LCD intervention are quite different.
There is currently no sufficient evidence to explain this heterogeneity
Through prospective, randomized controlled clinical studies, combined with high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics big data analysis, researchers found that the structure of the intestinal flora is a determinant of the short-term LCD weight loss effect for overweight and obese people
In addition, the research provides a new strategy and method for clinical medicine weight management and intervention by constructing an artificial neural network model based on the structure of intestinal flora to predict the weight loss effect of LCD
