A reader forwarded me two reports, one from a male and one from a female. No notes on the people (I am fine with that). The report appear to be superior to uBiome on two counts:
- It’s a professional grade report from a clinical laboratory
- It reports down to the strain level on occasion.
This second post is on the male. (See this post for the female)
- Low Bifidobacteria
- No Lactobacillus
- No E. coli
- Low Akkermansia muciniphila (less than 1/100 of 1% of typical)
So standard CFS profile on these
Copying the data to Excel allow me to get similar numbers as I do from uBiome reports.
We have a lot more with the male than the female.
The greatest impact (volume of metalites produced) appears to be (in order) from Blautia, Bacteroides uniformis , Ruminococcus, Roseburia. I have done just the 8 highest below (for the moment — I may return to expand more in the future).
- Blautia: https://atomic-temporary-42474220.wpcomstaging.com/2017/10/29/reducing-blautia-genus/
- Bacteroides: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/20/decreasing-bacteroides-genus/
- Ruminococcus: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/18/reducing-ruminococcus-genus/
- Roseburia: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/29/decreasing-roseburia-genus/
- Dorea : https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/18/reducing-dorea-genus/
- Oscillospira: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/15/decreasing-oscillospira-genus/
- Anaerostipes: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/07/decreasing-anaerostipes-genus/
- Eggerthella: https://cfsremission.wordpress.com/2017/10/19/decreasing-eggerthella-genus/
Combining all of the lists and tossing out things that appear on both side, we have the following lists. There are two genus cited above that I have not done a deep dive into. I have skipped rare bacteria because of the number of over growths found. This was a pretty clean merge — often the same item appeared multiple times in one list or the other.
The lists below are done by merging the lists from the deep dives linked above. Some items may encourage one genus and discourage another genus — those are removed (unless it seems that it strongly predominates on one). The impact on Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and E.Coli are intentionally ignored [See this post for the logic]. This is all based on applying logic to the results of studies — thus theoretical. This is an addition (not a replacement) to this overview post.
