SAN DIEGO — In a Healio video exclusive, Andres Acosta, MD, PhD, outlines research presented at Digestive Disease Week 2022 that focused on the relationship between gastric function and the regulation of food intake.

“Our research mainly focuses on understanding how the gut communicates with the brain to regulate food intake. This is extremely important because we are suffering an obesity epidemic,” Acosta, assistant professor of medicine and consultant in gastroenterology and hepatology at Mayo Clinic, said. “We're super excited to explain how our gut communicates with the brain, regulates food intake and plays a major role in obesity and in the pathophysiology of a disease that is really affecting our epidemic.”
