Probiotic foods and supplements have been on the market for years, but as their popularity has grown, so has the need for clear and accurate recommendations for patients who want to use them. A guest commentary from Dr. Gail Hecht, chair of AGA’s Center for Gut Microbiome Research & Education, was recently published in Healio Gastroenterology, in which she offers advice on speaking with your patients about probiotics.

More information about probiotics to share with your patients can be found in the AGA GI Patient Center.
