Enhance Analysis of Doctor’s Data Stool Analysis

Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis is an adequate report to support a CFS diagnosis.  It has limited value for generating sets of suggestions covering all of the bacteria genus in the human gut. As I have mentioned before, I will apply logic based on available limited knowledge and hope it helps enough to result in more comprehensive microbiome analysis later.

II did two earlier analysis of this type of report:

  • 2014-05-06 – the report was NOT typical of CFS
  • 2014-05-19 – the report was in the CFS spectrum

Report Microbiome Component

Canada

Expect CFS shifts:

  • No Bifidobacterium
  • No Lactobacillus

Using the AHMF 1998 Study as a compatible reference:

  • ” Klebsiella/Enterobacter group, 0%(Healthy) and 3%; (CFS)” – Agreement – High
  • Streptoccocus is a known major producer of d-lactic acid and associated with CFS [2009]
    • Also it is associated with sleep issues: “For both the responders and the whole group, poorer mood was associated with higher Lactobacillus. Short term antibiotic treatment appears to be insufficient to effect sustainable changes in the gut ecosystem in most CFS participants. Some improvement in objective sleep parameters and mood were found in participants with reduced levels of gram-positive gut microbiota after antibiotic treatment, which is encouraging. ” [2015]

The real problem that I find with this report is that it is unclear if a 3+ is an overgrowth or good… from their example report  it seems to be an “insignificant”. The sample report also suggest that their report is more focus on detecting yeast problems than microbiome shifts.

Suggestions

This report  cites only one overgrowth, Klebsiella pneumoniae and going to DataPunk.Net we find only:

INHIBITED BY

I recommend that the reader consider getting a uBiome done. This does NOT require a prescription or MD’s order and is available everywhere in the world.  The cost is very reasonable, $89. It may well result in both improvements and reduced supplement costs by taking appropriate items for your microbiome instead of the randomness that is often done by most CFS patients.

This is an education post to facilitate discussing this approach with your medical professionals. It is not medical advice for the treatment of CFS. Always consult with your medical professional before doing any  changes of diet, supplements or activity. Some items cites may interfere with prescription medicines.
