GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress 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 affects 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 affected pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients with 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 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 more noted in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish options for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are present in other human diseases, also, 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 elderly people. Recent analyses revealed the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research reminds doctors like your Baton Rouge chiropractor that it needs attention!
