Results of CDSA before and after fecal transplant
This person just posted their CDSA report, before and after transplant
I wish he would post before and after description of his health. Seems it did get rid of some negative bacteria.
I don't think pathogenic bacteria would necessarily be better able to implant and colonise. Every type of bacteria does what it can to survive and that includes developing ways of successfully implanting in a new environment. I am cautiously taking the fact those E. coli strains that appeared after this guys HPI as a positive. It would obviously have been more heartening to see the Lactobacilli go up to 3+/4+ though!
Are those E coli strains bad then Maff? Can we see it as a positive that they were able to implant so well post FT or is that a characterisitic of pathogenic bacteria?
I also want to get my beneficial E. coli up True. On a previous test around 10 years ago I had low Lactobacillus and E. coli. It was only my Bifidobacteria that were normal in the beneficial bacteria section. I have a lot of problems with sleep too - although there are a lot of factors I know to be involved in my case at least!
My CDSA showed zero e.coli. I am hoping to increase my e.coli with the transplant as I have read that lack of e.coli can be the cause of insomnia which I have suffered from since my c-section/ three day intravenous antibiotic stint. Makes me very hopeful indeed.
Thanks so much for posting this - very interesting. It looks like some of this guys markers such as stool pH and SCFAs moved more towards the middle of the normal range and there was clearly a reduction in some of the undesirable microbes he had. I'm sure he must have been disappointed that there was no improvement in his 0 for Lactobacillus sp.
I agree it would have been good if he provided some commentary on any changes in symptoms and whether he used any antiobiotics or other treatments along with the faecal transplant or whether the changes seen were all due to the faecal transplant itself.
Makes me think maybe I should shell out for tests before I start - got to get donor tested again post pathogen treatment. Food for thought.
