A reader left me a voice mail and sounded very frustrated trying to deal with dry mouth. Fortunately it is a symptom in our Eureka database. The apparent cause is excessively low amounts the following genus:
- Faecalibacterium x 163
- Dorea x 81
- Roseburia x 72
- Blautia x 29
- Lachnospira x 9
And possible high amounts of:
- Akkermansia x 4
- Intestinimonas x 11
Since this is at the genus level, we do have an ability to look for suggestions for this combination explicitly by going to: Enter All Bacteria [Genus] Reported Report and enter the values. This is automated later in this post.
If you have any gut bacteria tests, you may be able to exclude some items from the list if they are in the normal range. You could examine your own levels and modify what is entered there to better match.
With the following on the avoid/stop list
The flow from the web site.
The logic behind the web site is similar to the logic used for Will this supplement help my symptom? It is under this menu item.
It will only list the genus and species level with a strong association. Just click the desired symptoms (some may have no result)
Click on the desired item, it will take you to a page with the key bacteria. The higher the number, the more probable it is. You can just click and transfer the genus in this list to a suggestion page (and add any more information that you wish)
Remember this is an association. It may be the cause — or it may be a side effect of the symptom. We do not know.
