AbstractBackgroundThe first 6  months of life are a critical window for adiposity programming. Appetite-regulating hormones (ARH) are involved in food intake regulation and might, therefore, play a role in adiposity programming. Studies examining ARH in early life are limited.PurposeTo investigate ghrelin, peptide YY (PYY) and leptin until 6  months and associations with fat mass percentage (FM%), infant feeding and human milk macronutrients.ProceduresIn 297 term-born infants (Sophia Pluto Cohort), ghrelin (acylated), PYY and leptin were determined at 3 and 6  months, with FM% measurement by PEAPOD.

ConclusionsWe demonstrated that a switch from a CT to an isocaloric MD affects the endocannabinoid system and increasesA. muciniphila abundance in the gut independently of body weight changes. Endocannabinoid tone and microbiome functionality at baseline drives an individualised response to an MD in ameliorating insulin sensitivity and inflammation.Clinical Trial Registry number and website NCT03071718;www.clinicaltrials.gov
