Might intestine micro organism have an effect on diabetes therapies?


Researchers are discovering ways how certain bacteria in the gut could one day be used to fight type 2 diabetes.

The gastroenterologist Dr. Leon Maratchi of Memorial Healthcare and Gastro Health said a recent study found that after feeding rodents on a Western diet, bacteria in the gut were identified that are linked to glucose intolerance associated with diabetes and fatty liver disease.

“And they found that they replaced the bacteria associated with diabetes and fatty liver. They could change the course of those problems in animals,” Maratchi said.

Maratchi said this could lead to an innovative approach to treating diabetes without pharmaceutical drugs.

“And we can treat diabetes in the future with natural probiotics that target the liver directly to support glucose metabolism, obesity and things like that,” he said.

The data on the benefits of CBD oil continues to grow, suggesting that it could be helpful in treating a wide variety of skin conditions.

Because of its potential anti-inflammatory properties, some health experts believe it can be used topically to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, and even the appearance of aging, including wrinkles

The cannabis plant can also contain antibacterial and antifungal properties that could be useful in treating skin infections.
