Back in December in my Editors Desk, I mentioned that a CDE/dietitian friend of mine enlightened me on the reasons that artificial sweeteners might have some effects on the gut flora of patients. Her solution was to start taking probiotics to correct the imbalance that was occurring. Over the years we have had many articles on the use of probiotics, including this one from 2013 looking at probiotics, obesity and diabetes and another that looks at the way probiotics can increase GLP-1 levels and maybe prevent diabetes.

This week, we have new information on how important these probiotics can be when we use intermittent fasting to treat or prevent diabetes and why together they make an unbeatable combination.
