The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting healthcare providers and patients that fecal microbiota for transplant (#FMT) may transmit multidrug-resistant organisms, leading to serious or life-threatening infections.

In a safety communication issued today, the FDA said two immunocompromised adults who received FMT developed invasive bacterial #infections caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)–producing Escherichia coli. One of the patients died.

Thiis is why it is extremely important to do extensive screening of potential donors prior to fecal transplant. We are among the few centers that test potential donors for antibiotic resistant #superbugs and genes, as well as pathogenic micro organisms

Several modes of interaction be-
tween the #gut and the #brain have been discovered, including
the synthesis of metabolites and #neurotransmitters, activation of
the vagus nerve, and activation of the #immune system

Exactly. I prefer the use of the term #dysbiotic #inflammation rather than infection-driven inflammation https://t.co/IzE5ItINx8

If you have enough #mycotoxin toxicity in your system while also having an #intestine dominated by gram negative aerobic pathogenic bacteria, your #Lyme testing may be positive, despite the lack of Lyme infection! Be careful before getting antibiotic treatment for supposed Lyme!

We are finding an alarming amount of #mycotoxin toxicity causing chronic symptoms. Toxic burden is potentiated by dysbiotic gut inflammation

Functional testing can reveal these deficiencies but further exploration of a person's gut microbiome will get to the cause of the deficiencies https://t.co/4JImvVjRtp

Dr DV’s deep-level, detailed diagnoses and solutions, and his ongoing meticulous and caring attention was effective to reverse physiological imbalances that were limiting me and causing deteriorating health, and then continued to support me to take the next steps to lose weight, tone my muscles, build strength and achieve overall good health. I am really enjoying the program and the results! -Nantz Rickard Washington, DC 12/22/15
