GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the development or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that many times leads to bone and joint diseases associated with aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria modified pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota varied between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota discrepancies can help doctors diagnose AIS and set up options for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are present in other human diseases, also, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases linked to decreased activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses revealed the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Plymouth chiropractic patients may not often contemplate their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research reminds doctors like your Plymouth chiropractor that it requires attention!
