1/n Warning: long thread approaching (I should have done it as a blog, but that requires too much effort on LSL). Hi @ChrisPalmerMD and @evolutionarypsy. I haven’t forgotten our Twitter convo on the KD in relation to diet and the gut microbiota... 2/n, but I’ve been having too much fun on leave to get to this. Also, I really didn’t even know where to start! The gut microbiota is a complex topic and there’s a lot we do know, but even more than we don’t.

An n=1 anecdote/cautionary tale

As is obvious, I’m currently on long service leave, travelling in our new caravan with my lovely hubby of 35 yrs. This trip has been long-planned and anticipated after all the cancer crap I went through last year. We left on the 1st of July and I should have been feeling wonderful. Instead, I was gripped with horrible anxiety and a return of depression that I had not felt for more than 20yrs.

@dnunan79 @ellenfallows Lots to discuss here and I'd strongly welcome input. Will address qs and issues in a thread here:
SMILES was the only RCT conducted in a depressed population included in our recent meta-analysis (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30720698) @dnunan79 @ellenfallows Findings are consistent with the observational evidence (e.g. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30254236)
