The gut and osteoporosis. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues.

Researchers now are discovering ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. The Novelli Wellness Center helps Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Buffalo, NY osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health change via the use of probiotics has become more mainstream in recent years to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Now, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to sort this out did discover that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant disparity in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in managing Buffalo, NY osteoporosis treatment planning.
