How Long To Repopulate Good Bacteria In Your Gut
Read this wiki
Antibiotic effect?: You may be concerned about the effects of antibiotics. It depends which antibiotic(s), for how long, and symptoms (usually diarrhea). No diagnosis is needed unless symptoms suggest certain problems, like C. difficile. Otherwise intestinal bacteria usually return to normal in a few weeks after antibiotics stopped. Probiotics might speed it up, but even without them, eventually all will be well. ...Read more
Whats the best food to eat after taking penicilin for two weeks to put some good bacteria back in the gut?
If you have been using probiotics for years and your gut and everything is healthy, will the good bacteria remain and when you stop using it?
Perhaps: The nature of the intestinal flora is often determined by your dietary intake. If you have large numbers of lactobacilli or bifidobacterium in your colon and your diet consists predominantly of dairy products they may remain there without your ingesting probiotics. Unpasteurized culture yogurt is a great substitute. ...Read more
Harvard's recent research: "gut flora is key to either gaining or losing weight, pill on the horizon". What food alters bad bacteria into good ones?
Doubtful: Body weight is calories in versus calories out. I could only find articles about obesity and gut bacteria in obscure journals (help me, anyone?) and i suspect this is just one more fake internet story. I bet dimes-to-dollars this "pill" never appears, but until it does, why not head down to the gym and have a really good time working and eating with fitness-focused friends? ...Read more

1000mg levofloxacin and 2000 mgamoxicillin per day for 10 day.billion of gut bacteria were killed.do good bacteria recover their own or need probiotic?
This is a good question.
You know, kids are born without gut flora. It is there at age one month, or a bit later if born by C section.
Yes your gut will repopulate by itself.
Probiotics are not necessary.
The idea of good and bad bacteria is also complex. They are morally neutral and in a ratio, it is more a question of the ratio than of intrinsic goodness or badness. ...Read more
Will taking bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) suspension for 10days for a UTI negatively affect my immune system or the good bacteria in my gut? I am a 19yo male
If I am taking amoxicillin, loratadine and tylenol (acetaminophen) for sinus infection, should i also take a probiotic and vitamin so i can keep good bacteria in my gut?
No: This is mostly a 'pop' claim. Especially, it's not something you'll learn from a small bowel biopsy. ...Read more
Not at all: A 'prep' for a colonoscopy is designed to wash out the big visible chunks of stool that could interfere with visualizing the colon. Don't worry - the bacteria know how to survive and they will 'stick' to the lining of your colon. (I know it sounds gross but they are there to help you!) This is a routine procedure and I feel confident your colon health will be fine afterwards. I do recommend kefir ...Read more
How long does bacterial ileitis last? Vom&dia9 wks.Thickening of term ilieum. Mes adenitis&distended bowel loops on u/s. All blood/stool tests normal
Not that long: bacterial or viral??? If bacterial - the antibiotics would help- but that rare. Viral happens more often in kids and very painful, but would expect to get better in 7-10 days. See your doctor. ...Read more
Yes: Our gut has approximately 100 trillion bacteria living in it. Technically anything you consume is feeding the population. It is part of a healthy and normal GI system. It is referred to as the Human Microbiom. 80% of stool is pure bacteria. If yo\u were to sep;rate out and weight the bacteria..it would be several pounds alone! ...Read more
Is bacteria in your gut same as bacteria in your vagina? If not, what's the difference and what kind is it?
Very different: The vaginia is relatively bacteria free and is a sort of hostile environment to bacteria. A few types do reside there. The gut is a hive of many, many different bacteria - some of which help in digestion and the function of the gut. I am guessing you are talking about sexual practice. It is a good idea to conduct anal and vaginal sex separately and not mix the few - cross contamination possibl. ...Read more
Lots! Gut bugs...: ...get blamed for obesity, ulcers, food allergies, & more. However, most o the time our normal intestinal flora can help us stay healthy.Clostridia incite production of antibodies that lock up allergens before they get into our blood. Dont decimate the good bacterial flora with unnecessary antibiotics, poor diets, frequent misguided "cleansers." Ref. ScienceDaily,8/25/2014. ...Read more
Busy bacteria!: You have more bacteria in your digestive tract than you have cells in your body. They produce essential nutrients; produce natural antibiotics; stimulate antibody production and protect against infection; allergy prevention; produces hormones for fat storage; help digest food. Some consider the metabolic activities of bacteria to be so substantial they are the equivalent of a 'forgotten organ'. ...Read more

May need to consume more calories.....animal protein is better than plant protein, reduce carbohydrate ( rice) consumption. Exercise is a must..... in this equation. ...Read more

What effect, if any, might a corticosteroid injection have on the digestive system and gut bacteria?
Probably not much: Although corticosteroids certainly have an effect on the stomach and surely can affect the gut flora in some way, it is doubtful that one injection would have much of an effect. In addition, it would be difficult to judge what that effect would be, if it did occur. It's a question that is almost impossible to answer without knowing more detail. Good luck. ...Read more
Gut bacteria: hello~ gut bacteria are essential for digestion. ZERO effect on appetite. If it did some crazy person would have suggested sterilzing the bowel for weight loss. If you did that you would most certainly lose weight but also win the competition for the thinnest dead person ever ! :-) No, eat a healthy diet, lots of fruit and vegs, keep weight down to BMI ~ 23 and EXERCISE and you will live forever ! ...Read more
Those who are overweight often have an imbalance of intestinal flora and improving this will help one to lose weight. Those who are underweight may have a different type of imbalance and improving this can help you gain weight. If your weight is appropriate then healthy flora will not contribute to weight gain or loss.
