Hyocholic acid (HCA) and its derivatives are found in only trace amounts in human blood, but constitute approximately 76 % of the bile acid (BA) pool in the pig, a species known for its exceptional resistance to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Here we show that HCA species play a crucial role in maintaining glucose homeostasis and preventing T2DM. We found that in two cohort studies (n=1,213), both obesity and diabetes were associated with lower serum concentrations of HCA species. Serum HCA levels in apparently healthy individuals (n=132) were found to be strong predictors for metabolic health 10 years later. Oral administration of HCA increased serum fasting GLP-1, to a greater extent than metformin, in healthy and diabetic mouse models. HCA upregulated GLP-1 secretion in intestinal enteroendocrine cells via simultaneously activating G-protein-coupled BA receptor, TGR5, and inhibiting farnesoid X receptor, a unique mechanism that is not found in other BA species.
