2020 FNCE: New Insights into Cardiovascular Disease: The Role of the Gut Microbiome
Academy Center for Professional Development
Recorded pre-approved CPE Activity: 175 Lectures/Webinars
This session will focus on the relationship between the gut microbiome and the development of CVD. New research suggests that certain foods/dietary patterns increase the production of TMAO by the gut microbiome and this increases CVD development and other metabolic dysfunction. A review of dietary patterns and nutrients that impact the gut microbiome and the risk for CVD will be presented.

Planned with the Committee for Lifelong Learning

Learning Objectives:
Describe the role of the gut microbiome as it contributes to CVD
Describe the link between dietary intake and the production of TMAO and the metabolic consequences of increasing levels of TMAO
