Antibiotics for young children could lead to adolescent prediabetes ;
(NaturalPath) According to a study of Greece, which was presented in the Endocrine Society meeting, young children who take antibiotics may alter the microbial ecosystem of the gut and be more likely to develop prediabetes adolescence.
“Increased consumption of antibiotics until the age of three years appears to decrease the beneficial intestinal microbes and alter nutrient absorption and metabolism. This can lead to pre-diabetes, a stage of high early risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus, “said lead researcher on the project. She went on to say doctors should be careful with antibiotics because gut microbes are delicate.
The researchers used both male and female adolescents aged 12-17 years, analysis of stool samples to understand more about the relationship between intestinal microbes and antibiotics. They used ten prediabetic adolescents and 14 healthy controls. The prediabetc group had taken antibiotics for three times a year by the time they were three years old.
The healthy control group was 8.5 times less likely to have taken antibiotics by the age of three years, and 1.75 times more likely to have a positive family history of autoimmune diseases. The result of the study was that the depletion of beneficial intestinal bacteria leads to unfavorable changes in the intestinal flora and may lead to adolescent prediabetes. In addition, the authors suggest that prebiotics – non-digestible fibers that feed beneficial microbes – and probiotics – live beneficial microorganisms -. They can help restore proper balance in gut bacteria and help prevent prediabetes, and its progression to diabetes
