    Can anyone recommended a stool analysis test? Which company to use, which specific test to run, your experience etc. (I live in the US)

    I'm suffering from some dysbiosis due to antibiotics and years on a terrible diet, and would like to know specifics on the type and % of my intestinal flora.

    I see the Metametrix test can only be ordered by a doctor, unfortunately.

    Thanks

    I was in Europe at the time but KDM is sending samples from the States now.

    You can order the metametrix one yourself through mymedlab.com. They'll deliver it your door and pick it up from your house.

    hi,

    what do you guys make of redlabs dysbiosis test in 2016? I'm from Poland and I'm looking for the best and most cost-effective way to check if i have problems with lack of e.coli available in Europe.

    Is redlabs any good/trustworthy?

    Are there any alternatives in Europe?

    One company in PL ships to US but it costs around 500usd. Would love to go to the US myself for that money :p :p

    Do you mean the Metagenomics?
    In my experience, yes. I just got my Metagenomics test results from them. But, it is way too complex to figure out on your own. You would need a doctor, who is knowledgeable, to interpret it.
