Here is my CDSA results and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what some of this stuff means and how I might go about fixing some problems. Thanks for any help that you can offer. - RedPalms
CDSA:Meridian Valley Labs
Consistency: Very Soft....ABNORMAL
Food Remnants 2+........ABNORMAL
Liquid or very soft due to rapid transit through intestinal tract, may be due to allergies, sensitivity, diarrhea, infection, or improper absorption. Presence of fibers and food remnants indicates improper food digestion.
Vegtable Fibers 15-20/HPF....ABNORMAL
Suggested Follow Up: Heidelberg Capsule Gastric Analysis or Betaine HCL and Pepsin challenge.
Urobilinogen 4+ mg/dl....ABNORMAL
Butyrate .67 mg/GM...Nearly ABNORMAL (NORMAL=.65-3.84)
When elevated, suspect hypermotility, frequently due to allergy or an excess population of bacteria in the bowel that transformed bile into urobilnogen.
Lactobacillus 0....ABNORMAL (Should be 3+ or more)
These organisms are normal inhabitants of the intestinal tract and are necessary for a balanced population of flora. Some of the major beneficial functions are: aiding in the digestion and absorption of nutrients; helping destroy hostile invading bacteria; providing an anti-tumor effect; reducing cholesterol level; controlling proliferation hostile yeast; and creating an acid environment whcih reduces the amount of undesirable bacteria.
