I personally had a bacteria that eats FOS so I should avoid it at all cost.
Lauren, which bacteria is that and how did you find out?
Hi Able! I got a Comprehensive Stool Analysis (CSA) done and I had high levels of three bad bacteria they are 3+ Citrobacter braaki, 3+ Citrobacter freundii 4+ Proteus mirabillis. When I mentioned these results to Brenda Watson she stated:
“FOS is a fruit sugar that is also a fiber and is generally very helpful in the gut. It’s something called a pre-biotic. Your reason to avoid FOS has to do with your particular Stool Analysis test results that you mentioned which showed 3+ Citrobacter braaki, 3+ Citrobacter freundii. That is a particular strain of bacteria that happens to like to eat FOS.”
I took Ciproflaxcin to help get ride of these bacteria. This is because the lab tested 3+ Citrobacter braaki, 3+ Citrobacter freundii and found that it was resistant to many things but not Ciproflaxacin. However because how strong these bacteria are I am suppose to try and avoid FOS. But I have not been able to find one that has everything I need and that has not FOS.
This test is also where I confirmed that I had a yeast overgrowth. It was shown up as many yeast in all three stool sample that I gave. I am currently getting another test done by metamrix to see how I have progressed and if they can find any parasites.
