Understanding Blood Lipids and Their Relation to Health

April 26, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Description

Presented by: Mark Pettus, MD, FACP, ABHM

A variety of fat and cholesterol-carrying lipoproteins have been targeted by dietary and pharmaceutical interventions in an attempt to improve patient health. Some of these interventions targeting specific lipids and lipid carrying molecules have more efficacy than others. This discussion explains those characteristics of a variety of lipids, how their relationship to one another is more valuable, and how aspects of an individual's dietary habits and metabolism can influence their risk for disease.

Topic
 
The microbiome is a complex and dynamic ecosystem, changing with every aspect of our lifestyle.  Diet and food choices are capable of creating profound changes in the microbes that constitute a major component of this organ/organ system.  Every characteristic of a food is influential on the populations of bacteria that maintain the mucosal layer and its turnover, is responsible for nutrient absorption, the production of various neurotransmitters, and numerous other critical, physiological processes.  Different fiber qualities, carbohydrate densities, and types of sugar have distinct effects on the microbiota. Fat and oil qualities can produce measurable changes in the populations of bacteria families, as well as the presence on specific agrochemicals such as glyphosate and food preservatives such as emulsifiers.
