I am just going to link to elsewhere to avoid having a lengthy post. https://www.mypatientmatch.com/posts/disbacteriosis-as-related-to-autism-and-fibro-64243
Glial cell activation and disbacteriosis ("gut dysbiosis") are important parts of these posts I have linked to. If you are new, glia are immune//housekeeping cells of the central and peripheral nervous system.
The first research there is an autism study, but possibly it will interest people because within it's introduction is the explanation of how eating processed foods could activate certain receptors on glial cells. The first topic is PPA. It is also a by-product of the energy metabolism, as you will see.
I also link to articles about
a new fibromyalgia study about
I link to the original study and you can see the titles of the sub sections, so that you can decide if any of those interest you.
(newbies section: fibro may really be MCAS/mast cell activation syndrome or disease for a big subset, if not all of us. Newbies: Glial cells are activated in many diseases and syndromes. They can engage in "cross talk"/ /cross activation with Mast cells. See details of the processes on my recent mast cell thread post. Certainly there are other processes that could activate glia, from injury, to viral or bacterial infection, to mast cell activation syndrome/MCAS.)
