Revisiting old Ubiome’s “D” – IBS only

A year ago, several readers shared their ubiome for me and I did a series of post looking for patterns. See this post on the Genus Numbers.

It is time that I do deep dives for these early sharers.

Results D:

  • IBS. No CFS
    • D2 1/16/2015
    • D1  3/26/2015
Genus D1
Dorea 3.01
Clostridium 2.79
Blautia 2.19
Enterorbabdus 1.55

Deep Dive References

Bottom Line Suggestions

The items from each of the deep dives aligned very nicely for this microbiome, for example, Inulin was listed many times.

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.
