Gut flora, metabolism, inflammation... which comes first?

Answered on October 03, 2013

Everybody knows that diabetics and people with metabolic syndrome have altered gut flora. However, what I do not understand is this: is it the bad altered flora that may cause problems with your metabolism or is it poor metabolism that causes the poor gut flora?

And where does the inflammation come into this picture? If you fix your gut flora, can you stop some inflammatory processes in your body or is it the other way around?

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

a bad diet causes all of those things, attempting to explain which symptom causes another symptom isnt the best idea as they can all simply be caused by another unidentified factor.

coorelation != causation
