GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the development 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 evidence that it influences the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria modified pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota is different 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 large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are present 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 linked to decreased activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses reported the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Fernandina Beach chiropractor that it requires attention!
