A low level on a breath hydrogen test would mean
very little candida and good gut flora, right?
If my breath hydrogen test came back low, I shouldn't
need to supplement with probiotics?

I took some to help with an infection, but I think
it bothered my gut since I don't really need them
to balance out bad intestinal stuff....

Does this sound accurate?

I had low breath hydrogen too and still had to take probiotics.  I have none now and still take them.  

When do you take them?  I take mine first thing before I eat in the AM and don't eat for quite a while and let them do their job.

We all need probiotics if they bothered you may it have more to do with your colonies being out of whack then the probiotic being the problem.

So it's normal for the first couple days to feel
like there really is a war in there? For 3 days
I thought someone was inside there, pushing out...
I guess that would be described as painful bloating.
Thanks each of you, for your help!

I take them in the morning as well, but usually after breakfast.

Do you think it's safe to take the Polyflora A and FEM Balance together?
I can't see the probiotic hurting anything, but thought I would check.

take polyfl on an empty stomach, followed by a glass of water
take the other after breakfast

*bump*

I had my breath hydrogen tested recently, as I am concerned about SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth).

The first test was with lactulose and the reading rose fairly quickly after 1.5 hour or so (way up into the 40's then higher again).

The nurse said I am a hydrogen producer and that the result was good, and that it does not show SIBO. The nurse who did the testing said that lactulose is not the test used for SIBO anymore, that glucose was the test for SIBO - my glucose test came back negative (a consistent reading of around 4).

Would I be correct to start a dose of B probiotics anyhow?

As the tester was not BTD literate so she did not really understand from a BTD perspective...and I do not really understand how to interpret results either as it is fairly new to me...

Lactulose is what Dr. D uses to do his test. Above find a link for how SIBO is tested for, sounds like your nurse did not know what she was saying.

Dr. D does the test over 1 hour. What where your first 4-5 numbers?

40 is not a low number...

Gastro-D for the upper GI stuff and intrinsia for the lower GI stuff----- plus polyflora. As a nonnie polyflora really should be used for general health, forever. Our gut flora diminishes over our lives and needs to be replenished on a daily basis.

Thanks Andrea, great to have your input.

I will have my exact result numbers next week... I don't remember what they were as I didn't think they were important enough due to nurses explanation.

I have gastro-D, never ordered Intrinsia as I think a teaspoon of ghee a day would cover the butyric component. Polyflora is on the wishlist.

Interesting that the link you gave discusses SIBO and rifaximin - that was suggested for me to take recently since i have rosacea like redness and broken capillaries, the rosacea / SIBO link has been intriguing, but not proven, I wonder if taking a dose of this interesting antibiotic would be as beneficial & harmless as recommended.. these anaerobic bacteria seem difficult to overcome - even for a long time BTD'er

Gas is from massive die off of bad bacteria. It is just as normal as a BT O eating red meat and being gassy.

Oh no don't do the antibiotic , please .

I know other threads exist on this topic. I posted someones nightmare journey with SIBO and antibiotics.

Build up the good bacteria and it will crowd out the bad.

This way of eating makes you healthier which is where you want to go.
