Currently, there is an increased interest in the role of gut microbiota in health issues. Evidence shows that an imbalance of gut microbiota or dysbiosis is involved in the mechanisms of weight changes. This review aims at summarizing the present knowledge between gut microbiota and malnutrition. Intestinal bacterial diversity and richness are altered in malnourished people compared to healthy people. The first studies on the modulation of the gut microbiota by probiotics, prebiotics, symbiotics, fecal transplantation and antibiotics for weight gain are encouraging. However, further studies are needed to develop and implement effective treatment for malnutrition.
