Abnormalities in the Gut Microbiome
In addition, probiotics have also been used by several patients due to the existence of abnormalities in the gut micro biome in celiac disease patients. According to the study entitled ‘Intestinal Microbiota and Probiotics in Celiac Disease’ which was published in the Clinical Microbiology Reviews of the American Society for Microbiology, there is a great difference between the microbiota profiles of the patients with celiac disease between those who do not have this condition. It was found out that there are fewer counts of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in the gut microbiome of celiac disease patients than those of non-celiac disease patients.
According to the World Health Organization, probiotics are “live microorganisms that can yield health benefit when administered adequately by the host”. With this, scientists who are dedicated to understanding the condition of celiac disease patients have found out the use of probiotics is beneficial to celiac disease patients with abnormal gut microbiome.
