Bacterial populations in the gut of diabetics differ from non-diabetics, says a new study from Denmark that may open up a potential role for modifying gut microflora with probiotics and prebiotics to improve health.
The study, published in the open-access peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE, builds on earlier studies that have linked gut microflora and obesity.
A breakthrough paper published in Nature in December 2006 reported that microbial populations in the gut are different between obese and lean people.
The results of this new study indicate that type-2 diabetes in humans is associated with compositional changes in intestinal microbiota.
