GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support 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 influenced pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases such as 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 choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are seen in other human diseases, too, 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 associated with reduced activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses discovered the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Millville chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Millville chiropractor that it needs attention!
