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 grows 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 influenced pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients who had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota varied between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, 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 choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations 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 linked to decreased activities of daily living, particularly in elderly people. Recent analyses found the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases.
