Diabetes linked to bacteria invading the colon

A new study out of Georgia State University, has found that metabolic diseases such as type two diabetes can be linked to bad bacteria in the colon. This could lead to further research studying which bacteria are invading the colon and possibly finding a cure to these diseases that include among them a type two diabetes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Metabolic syndrome is the term for a group of factors that raise a person’s risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
  • microbiota that encroach upon host cells drive chronic inflammation that interferes with the normal action of insulin, promoting type 2 diabetes.
  • In humans, developing metabolic disease, particularly type 2 diabetes, is correlated with having bacteria that penetrate the mucus lining of the colon, according to a new study.
