Italian State of the Art Microbiome Report

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.

Link to site (in Italian) http://www.ospedalebambinogesu.it/genetica-la-super-mappa-del-microbiota-intestinale#.Wf39d2i3xPY

This first post is on the female. (See this post for the male)

  • 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.

High Levels

Proteobacteria  Haemophilus parainfluenzae 75956% 0.06836
Firmicutes  Ruminococcus torques 11110% 0.00222
Firmicutes Veillonella dispar 1819% 0.01473
Firmicutes  Ruminococcus gnavus 1720% 0.03956
Firmicutes  Epulopiscium dolichum 891% 0.00196
Firmicutes Coprobacillus 880% 0.00044
Firmicutes  Blautia producta 853% 0.00665
Firmicutes  Clostridium 721% 0.00281
Firmicutes  Ruminococcus 268% 0.09076
Firmicutes  Epulopiscium 220% 0.00011

The greatest impact appears to be (in order) from  Ruminococcus, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Ruminococcus gnavus, Veillonella dispar. Since I have only done deep dives to the genus, not species level, I have borrowed directly from DataPunk.Net

Bottom Line

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 placed in inconclusive. 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.

Avoid

Take

Note: Taking as a fresh herb may work similar to oil
