MicroDiet Application Unlocking Personalized Nutritional Insights through Microbiome Analysis for Enhanced Glycemic Control

MicroDiet is not just another nutrition app; it’s a sophisticated tool engineered to explore the intricate relationship between dietary habits, gut microbiota, and metabolic disorders like obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) across different ethnic groups. Rooted in our mission to accelerate time-to-insights in personalized healthcare, this application delves into the impact of dietary changes on human microbiota and metabolic health.

Understanding the Problem

The Microbiome-Metabolism Connection
Metabolic disorders like obesity and T2D are increasingly prevalent and pose significant clinical challenges. Emerging research indicates that the gut microbiome—the complex community of microbes residing in the human intestinal tract—plays a pivotal role in host metabolism. Importantly, these microbes produce metabolites influenced by dietary factors, which in turn affect glucose and lipid levels in the blood. In the MicroDiet project, we integrated extensive clinical, dietary, and microbiota data, acquired through our ZONMW JPI HDHL project, to create a comprehensive dataset that powers the MicroDiet prediction tool.
