I am a chronic carrier of typhoid since many years. Antibiotics fails to cure it as the bacteria form biofilms in body. How to destroy biofilm?

I am a chronic carrier of typhoid since many years. Antibiotics fails to cure it as the bacteria form biofilms in body. How to destroy biofilm?

Awaiting discovery: Haven't heard of a way to prevent the formation of typhoid biofilms or to remove them. Research is surely underway to do just that. Biofilms are mixtures of bacteria and their associated polysaccharides, glycoproteins, glycolipids, extracellular DNA, etc., together called extracellular polymeric substances. Biofilms make an infection harder to treat and harder for one's immune system to eradicate. ...Read more

Gonorrhea : Gonorrhea does not have a carrier state. A test always has the possibility of giving a false negative result. This is something to consider.

I've been reading a fecal transplant may help IBS/SIBO. Is this worth trying? Can it be dangerous in any way assuming the donor is healthy?

I've been reading a fecal transplant may help IBS/SIBO. Is this worth trying? Can it be dangerous in any way assuming the donor is healthy?

Worth trying: if the donor is indeed healthy then the only real other risk is the risk of the procedure - which at your 35y/o is indeed minimal. if you're really unhappy with your bowel issues, well worth trying. Find a reputable center though, and preferably one that engages in research. ...Read more

How would you treat a bladder infection from Group B Strep (tested, high number of colonies) that doesn't respond to Ampicillin/Penicillin?

How would you treat a bladder infection from Group B Strep (tested, high number of colonies) that doesn't respond to Ampicillin/Penicillin?

Very unusual: This is almost impossible: GBS is uniformly susceptible to ampicillin and related penicillins. You may need testing to confirm if you are now infected with a different bacteria; and whether you still have a urinary tract infection or some other explanation for your symptoms (e.g., STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea). Discuss with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
