    I know that Dr kdm prescribes abx followed by probiotics, pulsing, one week abx, 3 weeks probiotics, then seems to follow this pattern for at least a few months. I also appreciate that the abx and probiotics he prescribes are dependent on what the gut tests show etc..

    However, what I am trying to establish is does dr kdm prescribe this probiotics and antibiotics protocol for a very long time, ie years, rather than months?

    Thanks in advance

    No single answer here: it depends on the patient, their tests, and their response. Some are not given antibiotics at all.

    The doctor I am seeing follows this KDM protocol fairly closely, however I have only been on it for a couple of months. I could ask next time I go for my appointment which is on the 21st July I think.

    I think Anniekim had a slightly different question ... does he SOMETIMES prescribe antibiotics long-term (along with probiotics, of course)? That is a very interesting question, given the harm that long-term AB usage can wreak. Anyone know the answer?

    Hi Drew, yes, you are right I was asking if some of his patients are kept on abx for many years. Don't think I articulated it very well so thanks for clarifying.

    Francelle, thank you for offering to ask your doc my question, that would be great.

    I have never heard of him keeping patients on antibiotics for years, but then I am not in touch with all his patients. The ones I know have had antibiotics prescribed (followed by probiotics) only for a period of months. Others may know more though.
