Dr Butt's affiliation with the university sector has given him access to both cutting-edge research and the emerging leaders in the field.
Microbiome & microbiota.
The microbiome shows us the different groups of microbes that exist in the gut, by DNA sequencing.
Study of the microbiota shows us the specific counts and the by-products of the microbes within those groups, thus allowing us to determine what steps must be taken to manipulate those microbial counts in favour of the patient's health outcomes.
GHS is concerned with the microbiota, specifically, because an overgrowth and/or undergrowth of certain species can be a major contributor to alteration of the gut commensal organism.
