GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress 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 expands in evidence that it influences the immune system and inflammation that many times 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 for developing scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases such as 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 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 decreased in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota discrepancies can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and establish options for the patients to transform 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, particularly in older people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Watertown chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a everyday basis, but research reminds doctors like your Watertown chiropractor that it requires attention!
