In Case You Missed It

Latest Research

This is the first double-blind, randomized controlled clinical trial to prove the efficacy of vitamin D3 in Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) patients. Oral vitamin D supplementation may safely improve signs and symptoms of ASD and could be recommended for children with ASD. More studies are needed to validate these findings.

In this study, histamine was reduced eightfold in the group that consumed a low FODMAP diet, which increased Actinobacteria richness and diversity. Conversely, the high FODMAP diet decreased the relative abundance of bacteria involved in gas consumption. This study has concluded that IBS symptoms are linked to FODMAP content and associated with alterations in the metabolome. They also found that in subsets of patients, FODMAPs modulate histamine levels and the microbiota, both of which could alter symptoms.

Taking probiotics during anti-Helicobacter pylori treatment may be effective for improving H. pylori eradication rates. There is also evidence that it can minimize the incidence of adverse events and alleviate most disease-related symptoms. Take caution when considering these results because of the presence of heterogeneity across the trials included in this analysis.

This study concludes that dental health and what they are deeming “leaky teeth” may be intimately linked to the cause and course of depression, while significantly impacting quality of life.

IBS check is useful for Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBD-D) and IBS-M (diarrhea and constipation) but does not show utility for IBS-C (constipation). “Anti-CdtB and anti-vinculin titers and positivity rates differ in IBS subtypes, with higher antibody levels and positivity rates in IBS-D and IBS-M, and lower levels in IBS-C subjects that are similar to those in healthy controls. These findings suggest that IBS-C is pathophysiologically distinct from subtypes with diarrheal components (i.e. IBS-M and IBS-D)”
