The changing view of bile acids and diabetes

Podcast: Research Pulse, Episode 03.

In this episode, we focus on how bile acids do more than break down dietary fats for digestion and play a key role in blood sugar regulation.

We speak to Professor Chris Rayner, a consultant gastroenterologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Professor in the Adelaide Medical School, University of Adelaide.


We learn about:

  • the changing view of bile and it’s roll in signalling hormones that regulate blood sugar
  • how bile acid medicine can help to regulate blood sugar
  • why the lower gut is so influential in controlling type 2 diabetes
