Metametrix Microbial Organic Acids Test Results Discussion

Discussion started by Maff 3 years ago

Hi All,

I created this discussion thread so we can discuss our Urinary Organic Acid test results as they relate to Candida (yeast) overgrowth, as well as SIBO, or overgrowth of bacteria.

I've also created a photo album in the group for uploading scanned results from Metametrix or other labs that do a similar test. I've added my own results and the interpretation from the lab. Basically, very high arabinose (a sugar) confirms yeast overgrowth while there are also markers indicating SIBO and disruption of serotonin metabolism (leaving me low) due to microbes taking tryptophan in my gut and converting it to 3-indoleacetic acid.

I'd love to discuss my results and those of others here and it would be even better if anyone else wants to share images of their results. You can add them to the album I created or make your own.

I look forward to a good discussion and maybe we can help each other with interpretation and where to go from each of us is currently at with Candida and gut dysbiosis issues.

No problem Steven. Dr. Myhill does have a very comprehensive site so well worth reading through the sections that might apply to you. She does tend to be extremely busy though and often has to limit taking on new patients. However, I believe you can still order tests and have her interpret the results without having a consultation after jumping through a few hoops re: providing medical history and current diagnoses etc. One of the most knowledgeable environmental illness / invisible illness doctors in the UK if you can get to see her in person or speak over the phone without doubt. All the best.

Thanks Maff, I'll take a look at the site.
It seems to be very comprehensive, it does like she's very busy at the moment.

Hi Steven. I'm in the UK and had this test done through Dr. Myhill. You can order the test on her website (doctormyhill.co.uk) without being a patient. You will need to complete a medical questionnaire though I believe. Dr. Myhill will interpret the results in a written report and write to your GP if required but I believe you can opt out of these and just get the lab results emailed or posted to you. Hope this helps and the test proves useful.

Hi all, I'm looking to get a test done. I noticed on the net, that there is a place in the USA, but is there a place in the UK? TIA
