GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it affects the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases associated with 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 had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences 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 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 discrepancies 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 present 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 decreased activities of daily living, particularly in elderly people. Recent analyses found the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Baton Rouge chiropractor that it needs attention!
