    A reader on her 2nd ubiome ( https://ubiome.com/ ) result had significant improvement but is also on a very restrictive diet due to severe histamine sensitivities. She asked for me to extract a probiotic centric set of suggestions. The site for upload of ubiome data and analysis is: http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/ Sample Id Earlier Later * All Profiles 198 171 * All...

    This is a copy of post M, that is #1000 post on my https://cfsremission.com/ blog. In it I will attempt to answer Nick's comment on Thick Blood, Clots dimension of CFS etc Nick: I assume the minimum list are still tests rarely done? It’s interesting reading, especially as my wife’s head symptoms are getting worse, I’m wondering if there’s a blood flow issue and wonder how I could test the...

    Today I got a comment from someone with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, often co-morbid with CFS, IBS etc. I thought that I would check to see if there had been any microbiome work done on this condition. I was delighted to see a February, 2018 article, "Alterations of the Gut Microbiota in Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Patients." and converted it results into a profile that can be applied to uBiome...

    I have extracted from studies the bacteria that have been associated with various autoimmune-related conditions as well as building pages to apply them to uBiome samples at: http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net .

    Both the other Labs Analysis and Ubiome recommendations have had the revised algorithm applied. The Values are not how strong it works, but the probability that it will have impact (works) A higher number means more and more studies have found that it has modified the bacteria. Ubiome Example The default recommendations look at: High counts > 150% Items with moderate impacts No antibiotics...

    Another portion of the revision has been completed. This consists of two parts: Displaying the percentage of gut samples that have a specific bacteria level Refactor of information on each bacteria level I have expanded the reference to every level of the hierarchy [IMG] Bacteria Level An example is shown below Bacteria Species_group Click the appropriate link if you have an overgrowth...

    MicrobiomePrescription Site Revision – Stage 1 This week I have taken off from work to do some serious refactoring on the recommendation site. The first phrase is to simplify recommendations and make items clearer for the brain fogged. At present we have 6,977 different relationships for modifying bacteria in our database. Example: One of the recommendations was for naringenin. This is...

    A reader messaged me about the safety of soil based organisms probiotics. I have touched on this a year ago in another post, there have been more studies since then. For hundreds of thousands of years, soil based organism was a part of our diet. I recall reading that the human gut bacteria has strong similarity to that seen around root vegetables. This is not surprising, pulling roots out of...

    Cognitive impairment is common in CF[2017]. A reader asked about ADHD, the hyperactivity of Attention–deficit/hyperactivity disorder is not typically reported, but the attention disorder is. There is not much published yet, but a few items were interesting: “Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with abnormalities in...

    In my earlier post, COMPARING REPEATED UBIOME RESULTS, I provided a tool but little guidance on interpreting. The key question is always whether the symptoms improved, not whether some numbers change. We do not know which numbers are significant and which numbers are just natural variation. Model Of Onset People see progression of symptoms since onset. Each progression is likely associated...

    I have done a few posts on depression over the years CFS Depression, Diet and the Microbiome Depression, Confusion, Fear – the protocol disrupters Depression: “Natural”, CFS, and other forms Psychoactive Probiotics! A friend asked me to revisit it, especially now that I have a recommendation program working. Depression and the Microbiome – PubMed From The role of microbiota in the...

    This week I got an email from activist in another under served medical condition, she wrote " Preliminary microbiome results are most similar to CFS. ". In another sense, it's may be a variation of SIBO. There is a DNA component (as there is with CFS, FM, IBS). A list of common symptoms include: Fatigue Anxiety Especially temperature sensitivity, Presence sensitivity, "sometimes all it...

    For the third item from the Metabolite Explorer, we return to a LOW item, Secondary metabolite degradation: Dioxin degradation. Here we see Low 8/14 High 1 /14 (No Onset information -- may be a healthy) Normal 5/14 I speculated that the ability to degrade dioxin will diminished and found that anyone who specified an onset, was a value of 1 or less and found this chart (that really needs...

    The highest average value at present on the symptom-metabolites explorer (http://ubiomecfsweb.azurewebsites.net/Metabolite/explorer) is from “Secondary metabolite biosynthesis: Stilbenoid, diarylheptanoid and gingerol biosynthesis” with an average of 2.1 with 8/14 HIGH 4/14 low 2/14 Normal. This is biosynthesis — the body producing this group of compounds, not metabolism (using and...
