Doing a medication review against ubiome results

After my last post, a brain fogged reader asked about items she has available. She has ubiome results from 2018-02-12 for reference.

AGAIN: This is all theoretical using the best information available. The quality of the information could be objective to.

Process is simple: Go to http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/Library/GutModifiers

then search for each drug. After getting the full list, add &seq=###### to the address to get it refined for a specific ubiome result. In some cases, you may find two entries (due to how data was entered), so do both.

Bottom Line

This person has a MD that wishes to helpful (hence the wide range of antibiotics available to her) but does not know what to suggest.

The above analysis suggests that the following be reviewed and discussed with her MD

  • Continued eating oatmeal
  • Take Metronidazole (only one group with caution – more good than harm)
  • Stop bacillus coagulans probiotics
  • Azithromycin seems reasonable to include.
    Note: Protobacteria is increased in one study and decreased in a different study

This is an illustration of how the site can be used to review what you are taking against your microbiome.  In a few cases, things are complete cleared (everything lines up), but in most cases we have to weight the plus and minuses.

As always — review it with your medical professional. Many will see that the logic above many be better than picking random suggestions off the internet.

This is an education post to facilitate discussing this approach with your medical professionals. It is not medical advice for the treatment of any medical condition. Always consult with your medical professional before doing any  changes of diet, supplements or activity. Some items cites may interfere with prescription medicines.
