Features of Bacteroides-Prevotella include:

• Abundance associated with lower bacterial gene richness in the gut • Reduced patterns of Bacteroides reported in IBS and ulcerative colitis; conversely, other researchers found increased levels in IBD • When compared with fibromyalgia patients, early RA patients showed less Bacteroides-Prevotella-Porphyromonas • Higher levels associated with excessive weight gain in pregnancy and in obesity • Other researchers reported lower Bacteroides (as part of Bacteroides-Prevotella group) in obese subjects compared to lean • Ratio of Bacteroides-Prevotella group to other gut bacteria correlated positively and significantly with plasma glucose; • In contrast, some have reported half the Bacteroides abundance in T2DM compared to those with normal glucose tolerance or those with pre-diabetes
