The human gut is rich in microbes. Therefore, it is of interest to document data to link known human diseases with the gut microbiota. Various factors like hormones, metabolites and dietary habitats are responsible for shaping the microbiota of the gut. Imbalance in the gut
microbiota is responsible for the pathogenesis of various disease types including rheumatoid arthritis, different types of cancer, diabetes mellitus, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. We report a review of known data for the correction of dysbiosis (imbalance in microbe
population) towards improved human health.
