Researchers studying a Chinese man with a rare condition that causes him to drink without consuming alcohol, have found a certain type of bacteria in the gut, may be to blame for his decontamination … and as a result of severe damage to the black fraction.
In a study recently published in the journal Cell Metabolism, researchers detailed the strange case of a Chinese man who had severe liver damage and a rare condition called auto-brewing syndrome. The latter, for Healthline, occurs when the body converts high-sugar foods or carbohydrates into alcohol, causing intoxication.
SEARCH EXCLUSIVE APPLICATION CONTAINS SERIOUS HEART OF THE HEART, HAS BEEN RELEASED, in the gut. But those treating the man find no yeast in his gut ̵
Pneumonia is a common type of bacterial commensal gut. Still, strains isolated from a patient's gut can generate about four to six times more alcohol than strains found in healthy people, "the press release said of the findings.
Bacteria – and the amount of alcohol it produces – may be guilty of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which "seriously" damaged his liver.
The research team also took intestinal bacteria samples from 43 patients who also had NAFLD and 48 after all, healthy patients found that about 60 [percent] NAFLD patients had K. and pneumonia producing high and moderate alcohol in their intestines, while only 6 [percent] healthy controls carried these strains. "
" When the body is overworked and not can break down the alcohol produced by these bacteria, you can develop fatty liver disease, even if you don't drink. "
" We were surprised that bacteria can produce so much alcohol. " "Lead author Jing Yuan, a microbiologist at the Sofia Institute of Pediatrics, said in a statement." Since the body is overworked and unable to break down the alcohol produced by these bacteria, you can develop fatty liver disease without drinking. "
To further test their hypothesis, the team fed bacteria extracted from Chinese patients with auto-brewing syndrome to healthy mice. After one month, the mice began to develop liver fat. At two months, their life began to record – a sign that "long-term liver
" The progression of liver disease in these mice is comparable to that of alcohol-fed mice, "they added.
But when treated with an antibiotic that kills K. pneumonia, the condition is The results show that there is a promise of a cure we are in patients with NAFLD-related bacteria.

"In the early stages, fatty liver disease is reversible. If we can identify the cause sooner, we could cure and even prevent it liver damage, "Yuan said, noting that it's still unclear why some people have high-grade alcohol K. pneumonia, while others don't.
"We don't" understand what factors would make someone more susceptible to this particular K. pneumonia, and we want to understand that further, "Yuan adds.
