Doctor insights on:
Salmonella: Non-typhoidal strains of salmonella can rarely produce enteric fever and are usually confined to the intestinal tract.

Can 16s sequencing of my intestinal bacteria identify any/all of following infections: h. Pylori, c. Jejuni, toxoplasma gondii?
Yes but...: Dna sequencing can identify most of the bacteria and also the % of those present. What you are going to use this for is perhaps the most important question and where are they located? I would check with your physician, find out what testing facility they are using and how extensive is the test. Some of the test only look for a few of the bacteria and don't measure them all. ...Read more

It is about 1% in moms who have developed anti-malaria antibodies and about 10% in those that have not.

Seek care from a ob/gyn who has experience with high risk pregnancies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Miscarriage: Unfortunately, there are several different criteria for diagnosing a miscarriage, and one of them is a fetal pole measuring more than 7 mm without a heartbeat. It appears that this pregnancy meets that criteria. Usually this is a pregnancy that was chromosomally abnormal, and this is nature's way of taking care of the problem. But you can always choose to wait longer and do another ultrasound. ...Read more
