Gut Microbiome Research: How is it Transforming Medicine?

Approximately 40 trillion bacteria are converted into food. It also determines when people get hungry and how we store fat in our body. CSIRO has recently launched a healthy intestinal diet to address obesity problems. The launch also highlights the importance of gut health during weight loss. Gut microbiota promotes complications of obesity induced by diets such as immune dysregulation, altered energy regulation, regulation of gut hormones and proinflammatory mechanisms such as endotoxins with lipopolysaccharide.

People with poor dietary habits may suffer from symptoms of intestinal health, according to CSIRO research. The negative bacteria have an impact on the gut due to poor dietary habits, forming microbiota. The microbiota is closely related to the body's brain and blood vessels. The recent laboratory germ-free research on mice reveals that major chemicals present in a mice's body depend upon the microbiome. 

Since the composition of the intestine is unique to different people, doctors are not aware of the effects of the microbiome in the human intestine. Gut Microbiome & Digestive Health-New Frontier studies show the purpose of human body microbiomes. It also provides a clear vision of the microbiomes ' past, present, and future visions. It has also worked to unravel the most complex diseases in a clinical context. Analysis of the gut microbiome helps the individual understand the aspects of nutrition, probiotics, and the liver. The gut microbiota composition is quantified by DNA-based methods like genome shotgun sequencing, sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA genes. Microbiota's metabolic products can be measured in serum using metabolic methods.

The difference in the levels of gut has been identified in the patients suffering from schizophrenia, a mental disorder with no specific cure. Around the world, 0.5 to 1 percent of the people have this disorder. In 2018, approximately 2,400 clinics were involved in testing microbiome science therapies, according to the report by Seventure Partners, a French VC investor. Compared to last year’s test therapies, the number has increased. The coming years will show whether treatment with microbiomes will work for humans or not.
