Got my initial data of my microbiome from uBiome today. My bacterial make-up is quite strange. Here is the phylum level percentages:
Average % My %
Firmicutes: 63.84% 89.03%
Actinobacteria: 1.6% 5.08%
Bacteroidetes: 30.62% 3.13%
Proteobacteria: 2.31% 2.44%
Fusobacteria: 0.09% 0.07%
Verrucomicrobia: 0.69% 0.04%
Cyanobacteria: 0.23% 0.02%
Planctomycetes: 0% 0.01%
Spirochaetes: 0.01% 0.01%
Candidatus Saccharibacteria: 0% 0.01%
Synergistete: 0.02% 0.01%
Apparently I have a ton of Firmicutes which digest fats. Which is odd because I'm on a vegan diet, and I am extremely skinny. I also have a good bit more actinobacteria, which they say is common in people with UC.
On the genus level there are some pretty interesting finds. I have 20% Blautia compared to 7% average. Apparently Blautia is an indication of a healthy gut, so that's good I guess. I have some weird stuff that apparently like no one else has, like unidentified marine bacterioplankton, haha. I also have more lactobaccilus and bifidobacterium, yay probiotics working!
This is just the first roll out of data, so they still haven't done a lot of comparisons yet.
