Diabetes Type 2

Scientific Research

The collection of gut bacteria and how they function together is known as the intestinal microbiome. Under the right circumstances and bacterial makeup, the colon, where most of these organ organisms live, is a health organ. When the wrong or bad types of bacteria are predominant than this bad collection of bacteria is known as dysbiosis (dis bye os’ is). Bad health outcomes occur under these circumstances. It is now well known that patients with type 2 diabetes have dysbiosis of the colon which promotes and accelerates their diabetes. The article below is just one of a number where this abnormal colon dysbiosis has been found.

A metagenome-wide association study of gut microbiota in type 2 diabetes.

Further studies by outstanding researchers have now shown how tightly this abnormal gut bacterial collection is tied to the development and progress of type 2 diabetes.

Modulating the human gut microbiome as an emerging therapeutic paradigm.

Role of Gut Microbiota in Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Having found that type 2 diabetes is almost always associated with colonic dysbiosis, the next round of research was directed to modulating the microbiota in these patients in to see if their diabetes improved. Prebiotics, including oligofructose-enriched inulin (Prebiotin), were studied and, indeed, favorable results occur when dietary management with these prebiotics were undertaken.

Vitamin D and prebiotics may benefit the intestinal micro bacteria and improve glucose homeostasis in prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
