This review analyzes the relationship between intestinal functional activity and intestinal microflora in patients with metabolic disorders. It is emphasized that gastrointestinal microflora has a significant impact on virtually all the physiological, metabolic, molecular-genetic and behavioral responses. It is also noted that the relationship between dysbiosis and the development of a number of diseases associated with metabolic disorders is considered an indisputable fact. The drugs used to normalize the microflora and motor-evacuation function in functional intestinal disorders associated with metabolic disorders include Lactile and Spark. Elimination of known risk factors in patients with such metabolic disorders is manifested by a decrease in intestinal clinical symptoms and restoration of intestinal endoecology, which creates the preconditions for the formation of a favourable metabolic phenotype.
