GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it influences 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 affected pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now modifications of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and set up choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen 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 elderly people. Recent analyses found the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Fort Wayne chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research reminds doctors like your Fort Wayne chiropractor that it needs attention!
