I heard Doctors Data is very good, but Genenova which was Great Smokies their test are hard to read and understand. I'm just having a regular stool test done now, collect this morning and result will be on Monday. In a couple of weeks I'm going to a allergist who will be doing the Doctors Data on me b/c I feel it's bacterial and not yeast causing my UC. I had the Genevoa stool test done twice first time it said yeast at the lowest level of one then same tested repeated 4 months later, no yeast found but found, what bacteria they did find was
klebsiella pneumoniae, protens mirabilis interobacter cloacae
Anaerobes do not use ozygen.
which explains why I was having a UTI uninary tract infection which I didn't know I had, thought the urgency of my pee and only peeing a little was UC related, my NP wanted me to take olive leaf and that wasn't working at all, give me the antibiotics and let me get relief now! is how I looked at it.
I've dealt with chronic, when I say chronic, I mean diarreah every morning, mushy stool, double over in pain, my anus hanging out every morning for 4 years now, you can't tell me this is normal UC. I've had fissures from the pressure of going and I'm not pushing my gut, it pushes itself.
I highly recommend Doctors Date, they are very thorough I have heard, even testing for heavy metals and their tests are easy to read for doctors, this is important you don't want to miss anything on the results.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") UC. STARTED LDN ON 1/25/09. Supplements: Cod Liver, Probiotics, multi whole food vitamin, olive leaf extract.
