GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the progress or prevention of a variety of 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 affected 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 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 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 reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota discrepancies can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish options for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen 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 associated with reduced activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses discovered the importance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Lynchburg chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Lynchburg chiropractor that it needs attention!
