uBiome Results #7 Summary

I took a dozen results from readers of this blog. Some have CFS diagnosis, some have IBS, some have something. There was no filtering to specific symptoms, diagnostic criteria, etc.  As a statistician, I would expect a need to cluster them to get meaningful results. To my surprise, these random people reading my blog had very consistent results showing the same general pattern. This pattern is summarized below.

A single uBiome results shared with me had a surprise, while the pattern was there — there was a Rickettsiales result (14%). This was the only Rickettsiales in all of the samples and hints that the items with only one or two results may be ‘bad bacteria’ infections.
The tree below shows where items were deemed significantly low in prior posts by being marked in red. In some cases the low values started at Phylum level, on other at the Genus level.

I have annotated with known probiotics available that may raise low levels (except for Lactobacillus amd Bifidobacteria which I will cover in future posts).   In some cases when probiotics are available, I rechecked the uBiome results and added notes. In my next post I will revisit what the model and this information would suggest for treatment.

If you know of additional probiotics not reported below, please email me with the details.

WARNING: Prescript Assist  and Prescript Assist Pro are two different products made by two different companies.  Only Prescript Assist has had studies on PubMed, the other one is recent to the market and has less variety.
