I have just added stubs for a new set of statistics based on uBiome reports uploaded. I believe we can assume that 90% of the uploads are for CFS/FM/IBS spectrum.
If you go to Bacteria Species you will see some distinctive patterns.
So very few with any Lactobacillus But we also see that almost every one has some other ones:
We see similar for Bifidobacterium except for one strain, Bifidobacterium longum.
I will leave interested readers to explore and speculate. The most frequently seen were
- Flavonifractor plautii 34
- Bacteroides vulgatus 33
- Blautia wexlerae 33
- Parabacteroides distasonis 32
- Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron 30
- Faecalibacterium prausnitzii 30
- Blautia faecis 30
- Anaerostipes sp. 5_1_63FAA 30
- Blautia luti 30
This is just a sample of what is possible with the design of the site. Explore these statistics pages. There is a real possibility that citizen-science may unlock key components of CFS.
