MS and the gut microbiome.
A correlation was found between multiple sclerosis and changes within the gut microbiome.
Previous studies suggest a connection between bacteria in the gut and MS as well as IBD, type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
Gut microbiome plays an important role in immune function and autoimmune diesease.In the study, patients with MS had microbial changes in the gut associated with the activity of genes that play a role in the immune system."Specifically, researchers found that the gut microbiome in patients with MS contained higher levels of Methanobrevibacter and Akkermansia, and lower levels of Butyricimonas compared with healthy controls. Increased levels of Methanobrevibacter in patients with MS resulted in higher levels of methane in their breath samples, said the researchers. In addition, patients with MS on disease-modifying treatment had increased abundances of Prevotella and Sutterella, and decreased levels of Sarcina, compared with untreated patients with MS."
This is important research because it sheds light on how much the gut really affects the immune system, which can then affect the brain. This could also lead to ways of diagnosis and treatment.
We have formulated I.V. nutrient and ozone treatments for MS that have benefited our patients. All I.V. therapies are MD supervised and RN administered in NY.
We also offer Good Gut probiotics to keep you intestinal microbiome healthy.
