Fig. 5

A model of gut microbial changes following RYGB. Blue boxes show inferred changes in microbial features (functional potential or taxonomic), while green boxes show the effects induced by RYGB either in the gut or in the host metabolism. Black boxes indicate hypotheses based on our data or other studies. Arrows connect shifts that are related. Since we did not measure inflammation markers we do not report an increase or decrease in inflammation, but we connect it to an observed change based on existing literature. All features shown here exhibited changes 3 months after RYGB and most maintained the changes up to 1 year after RYGB. Asterisks denote features that did not maintain the changes 1 year after RYGB
