Revisiting old Ubiome’s “C”

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 C:

  • Diagnosis: ME/CFS, POTS, MCAS, IBS-C, mold illness. No probiotics before test. I changed environments and had some health improvement between tests.
    • C1 10/1/2013
    • C2 9/13/2015
    • C3 6/23/2016
Genus C2
Akkermansia 13.04
Bilophila 3.13
Alistipes 2.81
Eggerthella 2.36
Intestinimonas 1.96
Odoribacter 1.88
Bacteroides 1.55
Flavonifractor 1.51

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.
