    A more interesting question is what's in there. Just had an anaerobic stool test--my first. All the rest have had air exposure, so the answer to this mystery should be forthcoming! :eek:

    Yep, KDM and RedLabs in Belgium. A lot of infections are anaerobic and get missed in the "run of the mill" stool test.

    I've got 'the kit' to do an anaerobic stool test sometime early next week - obviously not always predictable as to the time lines - hehe! Will be interesting to see the results.

    Did the Protea biopharma Neurotoxic Metabolite Test (related to high H2S - Kenny Meileir) with high end strong positive. UK NHS tested and reported nothing. This is just nonsense - to be blunt - stool very dark, watery with a few solids. Even I could see there was a gastrointestinal problem. But hope you all have better luck/treatment.

    No, I do not have bowel movements in the morning. This is an issue to me, because for stool testing the best specimen is the one made in the morning and liquid vs constipation is much better. However, I have to submit something for the follow-up of blastocystosis, so I submit the one from the evening, kept in the fridge.
