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 age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it stimulates 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 affected pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients who had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes 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 decreased in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota differences can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and establish choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are seen in other human diseases, as well, 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 elderly people. Recent analyses discovered the significance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) Pensacola chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Pensacola chiropractor that it requires attention!
