OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Fort Wayne osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health modification with probiotic use has grown to be more mainstream recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as diabetes and cancer. Now, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to address bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to sort this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant disparity in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic finds these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis helpful in managing Fort Wayne osteoporosis treatment planning.

This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and related symptoms. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is enthused it may also be beneficial for osteoporosis.
