“I have another question. Do you think this German test might be beneficial? https://www.vimedics.de/media/pdf/Musterbefund_Florastatus.pdf
In contrast to KyberKompakt (that you recommend) they don’t test: Akkermansia muciniphilia, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, H2O2 Lactobacillus. But it is cheap and easy to get as there is no doctor necessary to order it.
Do you think that I will get enough information from it to start with probiotics? “
Analysis of Medivere Florastatus intestinal flora test
Criteria: Look at the current list of deep dives of 69 bacteria genus(which comes from high values seen in uBiomes from CFS reders) and count the number of matches – we have just 4 or 6%. It does has explicit reading for Escherichia coli, Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus — as such, it is good as a indicator of prs obable CFS/IBS/FM.
The cost is about $60 US, uBiome is $89 for one time purchase ($72 for subscription). The slight reduced costs for significant reduction of information is not a wise decision.
