💨The gut microbiota generates ~0.2L–1.5L of gas per day
💨>99%: hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2), & methane (CH4)– *odorless*
💨foul smell of gas from <1%: sulfur–containing gases hydrogen sulfide (H2S), methanethiol (CH3SH), dimethyl sulfide [(CH3)2S] + volatile compounds
🦠bacteria in the colon ferment substrates that are not digested or absorbed in the upper GI tract (e.g. carbohydrates, proteins, fats)
🦠produce short-chain fatty acids, branched-chain fatty acids, ammonia, N-nitro compounds, phenolic and indolic compounds, and various gases

🧵 Thread zum Thema #GI #gastrointestinale Probleme im Zuge von #LongCovid

Viele #longcovid (und auch #mecfs) Betroffene berichten von anhaltenden Verdauungsproblemen wie Durchfall - #Diarrhoea nach der Infektion.

Auch ich habe seit 11 Monaten eine gestörte Verdauung …

6 Monate nach der Infektion wurde es immer schlimmer, unverdaute Substanzen im Stuhl, anhaltender Wasser- und Kräfteentziehender Durchfall.

Ich lies eine #Mikrobiomanalyse einer Stuhlprobe durchführen. (Kosten: 130€)

Mit folgenden auffälligen Ergebnissen:

1. #leakygut, … heißt mein Darm ist löchrig und Stoffe die eigentlich ausgeschieden in die Toilette gehören, landen leider auch im Blut, woraufhin leider auch das Immunsystem wie zb #Mastzellen reagieren können.

🌬️ Breath testing for #SIBO: everything you need to know! 🎈 😮‍💨 💩 🦠 🐄 📈

To kick things off: how do you diagnose #SIBO?
#SIBO is a disorder characterized by excessive colonization of the small intestine by organisms usually found in the colon, especially Gram-negative bacteria.

(NB: the more we learn, it seems the *type* of bacteria is more important than the *number!*)

While we're beginning to understand more and more about the #microbiome, research on the #mycobiome (fungi 🍄) is in its infancy. Here is my summary of 🔑 points from @aeprobio's seminar on the latest research on fungi and the gut!


Bacteria in the #gut outnumber fungi as a class, but at the individual species level can occur in the same numbers.
Most #gut fungi belong to Ascomycota or Basidiomycota

I was harmed by #CBT/GET not bc I was forced into the torture (aka #MEcfs) Clinics but bc lack of education meant #NHS Dx me w/ Depression as cause of #PEM, #BrainFog & debilitating #Fatigue and was then traumatised by #Psychiatrists who told me I was to blame 1/

Let's talk about something common, hard to treat, and often misunderstood: CHRONIC BLOATING AND DISTENSION!

A 🧵 summarizing from the excellent @AGA_CGH article…

#GI #GITwitter #motility #IBS #DGBI #FGID #microbiome #health #MedEd
🟢Bloating: subjective sensation of gassiness, trapped💨, or a feeling of pressure or being distended w/o obvious visible distension.

🟢Distension: objective physical manifestation of an⬆️in abdominal girth. Patients commonly say they look like 🎈 or 🤰
Bloating and distension are COMMON

🔴16-31% in the general population

🔴Women > men

🔴66-99% in #IBS

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

I don’t know how to get the word out about this. I am concerned about #MECFS patients who are a) having craniocervical fusions b) in Europe and c) are not actively engaged in patient groups on Facebook. [1]
My primary concern is that a significant proportion of patients who have fusions experience an initial improvement, but then have worsening symptoms roughly 5-7 months after surgery.[2]
In many cases, this is due to the “unmasking” of tethered cord syndrome, a condition many patients with craniocervical instability have. [3]…

2. After suffering for 16 years, seeing 19 docs with repeated misdiagnosis:

Her cardiologist couldnt diagnose #POTS

Her gastroenterologist couldnt diagnose #SIBO

Her immunologist couldnt diagnose #MCAS

Her neurologist referred her to a #psychiatrist!…
3. Patient: the "neurologist was out of ideas and suggested I get a psych evaluation, which I declined"

Penyebab sakit #gerd (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease) atau naiknya asam lambung ke kerongkongan utamanya dikarenakan oleh #sibo (Small Intestines Bacterial Overgrowth) bagiaman hubungannya? A THREAD...
Saya akan ahare sebab GERD yang bersumber dari penelitian profesor mikrobiologi Norm Robillard), asam lambung yang naik ke kerongkongan itu kalau menurut medis konvensional adalah melemahnya katup/klep antara lambung dan kerongkongan. Tapi apakah sumber utamanya sakit #gerd ini?
1. Jadi sumber utama terjadi reflux adalah dari dorongan gas. Gas ini hasil fermentasi bakteri di usus kecil bawah lambung (kalau gas hasil fermentasi bakteri di usus besar keluar ke belakang jadinya kentut). Jadi sebab utamanya adalah SIBO (Small Intestines Bacterial Overgrowth)
