I'm posting the results of the bacteria deficient in my gut in case there's any relationship to it being out of blaance and EC. I'm only posting the out of balance bacteria. Other gut bacteria levels were normal. I should note that some levels may have shown as normal because I take probiotics. I'm low in the following bacteria:
- Collinsella aerofaciens
* Low level can cause IBS.
- Dialister invisus
* Low levels can cause Crohns Disease.
- Ruminococcus albus
* Low levels can cause Ulcerative Colitis.
- Methanobrevibacter smithii
* Low level can cause constipation/ abdominal tenderness.
- Oxalobacter formigenes
* Low level can cause kidney stones.
I took this test for free. If you don't have insurance coverage or limited coverage, they provide it for free at this time since it's a new test they're looking into. It takes a couple months for them to process the results.
*Update: I just googled these bacterias and didn't find any significant negative information concerning low levels. You might want to have this test to see if you high levels of bacteria. No high levels of bacteria were found in my sample.
