Comprehensive Stool - Guidance PleaseIBD Stool Analysis Lactoferrin Calprotectin lysozyme dysbiosis
Posted 09 February 2016 - 09:43 PM
Hey everyone. I just got the results from my GPL comp stool analysis. I plan on following up with my doctor, but wanted to run this by the forum as well. Here are the items that appear problematic:
Commensal (Imbalanced) flora: 4+ Alpha hemolytic strep 3+ Gamma hemolytic strep
Dysbiotic Flora: 3+ Staphylococcus aureus
1+ Candida ciferrii 1+ Candida krusei
Microscopic Yeast: Rare
Lactoferrin: 10.1 (<7.3)
Calprotectin: 63 (<50)
Lysozyme: 813 (<600)
SecretoryI gA: 785 (51 - 204)
Intestinal Health Markers:
pH: 5.8 (6-7.8)
From initial research, this seems to point toward IBD? I don't have any gastro-symptoms however. Just a slew of very strange/random food sensitivities, none of which having symptoms that involve my GI tract.
Obviously, the staph is a problem - could this be the main culprit of the inflammation?
My symptoms are terrible ADHD, poor memory, chronic brain fog, chronic fatigue, restless leg syndrome/periodic limb movement disorder, allergic rhinitis.
Should I trust my GP with this or should I see a specialist?
Any insight appreciated. Thanks!
