    I think it's important to know what you've got in your gut first, so you know what you need to supplement with. Tests showed I was overpopulated with lactobacilli species and very low in bifido species, so that made it clear what to supplement with. Have you had your stool analyzed to see what bacteria you're low or high on?

    It's disturbing to me how many people with cfs are claiming tests are revealing large numbers of lactic acid producing bacteria. D and L-Lactate interconvert so whether one produces just D or L Lactate is meaningless, none are good in that event. The symptoms of lactic acidosis are close to CFS.

    @xks201 Do you know which bacteria produce lactic acid? And would symptoms be the same as experienced when doing anaerobic exercise?

    To my understanding anything that says lacto in front of it will produce lactic acid. D or L it doesn't matter as there is an enzyme that will convert them back and fourth.

    A healthy person does not experience the degree of symptoms during exercise as someone would with lactic acidosis or D-Lactate acidosis. The symptoms you can google and are pretty much similar to metabolic acidosis...disorientation...confusion..etc..
