GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged 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 stimulates the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases related to 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 influences musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now modifications of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the large quantity 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 modify their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences 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, particularly in older people. Recent analyses revealed the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) West Des Moines chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your West Des Moines chiropractor that it requires attention!
