Developments in Metabolomics – Dietary Insights & Impacts for Clinical Practice

Precision nutrition utilizes -omics techniques to personalize diets. Organic metabolomic testing plays a key role in clinical practice. It identifies current individual biological status that reflects diet, lifestyle, genetics, and gut bacteria to reveal a patient’s metabolic signature.

Different foods and diets are associated with specific metabolic fingerprints. For example, vegetarian diets are generally higher in citrate, while the Western diet is associated with high levels of branched-chain amino acids and aromatic amino acids. During this presentation, Betsy Redmond, Ph.D., MMSc, RDN, will discuss the latest research on the impact different types of diets have on patient health.

While dietary assessment remains an important tool, incorporating organic metabolomics testing into clinical practice can help practitioners optimize outcomes by identifing how foods and nutrients are processed, their impact on the gut microbiome, and an individual’s specific nutrient needs.
