My friend just got back her stool analysis. She takes tons of probiotic, but her counts of good bacteria was still in the low range.
The interesting thing was that per her test, everything was in the lower range, except the Mycoplasma sp. That was off the chart at +21. Everthing else tested fine (no Candida, no parasites, no h. pylori etc), all bad bacteria seems to be very limited and w/in norm.
My question is this, they listed Mycoplasma sp. under the non pathogen area, I have never heard of this before, especially since everything else was so low and she had tons of Mycoplasmas in her system. Almost like it is the predominant sp. in her flora.
Also, would this mean she has a Mycoplasma infection??? Unfortunately, the test only listed Mycoplasma sp, and did not give the species breakdown. She had IBS-A, stomach problems and urinary problems.
I read that one has to do a specific blood test to detect Mycoplasmas, haven't read that one can use a stool analysis, so not sure as to the validity.
Has anyone else had a stool analysis showing the Mycoplasma count??? The low range on the test was like +1.3, hers was +21.
