Its been a year or so since my last stool test so i just had one and got the results today.  not much has changed, still have dysbiotic bacteria..enterobacter clocae is the predominant one and also have alpha-hemolytic and beta strep which is odd cause i thought those were respiratory infections only.  Lactobacilli is low as always (+1) and bifido is non existent.  any idea why i cannot colonize abundant levels of the good bugs?  my ND says he usually sees high levels in most of hist patients.  im concerned that this is impairing my GI function and will make me susceptible to colon cancer or other diseases.  also under the parasitology/microscopy section it said small amounts of yeast were found and RBC's (rare- not present) which ive never seen before. could use some feedback - im honestly sick of taking these tests and my ND has no idea what to do with me anymore but he certainly wont turn away my business thats for sure

Low good bacteria is one explanation for continual dysbiosis. Are you still taking  high dose probiotics? (I'm still taking the Custom CP-1 formula, which you recommended.) After my history of 8 different gut bugs over a 4 year period, I left my previous ND and asked a new ND to figure out why I got recurrent gut (and respiratory) infections.  For me low stomach acid production, low levels of Vitamin D, Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, low white blood cells (esp. neutrophils) and low DHEA influenced my low immunity. Addressing all of those problems eliminated my gut bug problems and greatly reduced the number of colds for me.  Maybe you need to find a new doc who will actually look for causes of your continual dysbioses, rather than just test and treat (which my previous ND did).

    • There is also a celiac center at UCLA - Dr Weiss
    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.
