Metametrix Microbial Organic Acids Test Results Discussion
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.
