Anyone have clostridia show up in their kids urine? Why does our kids have this bacteria in their gut and not the general population? Where does it come from?

5. When the gut lining is inflamed the protective coating of lgA (immunoglobulin A) is adversely affected and the body is not able to ward off protozoa, bacteria, viruses and yeast’s like candida.
6. When the intestinal lining is inflamed, bacteria and yeast’s are able to translocate. This means that they are able to pass from the gut lumen or cavity, into the bloodstream and set up infection anywhere else in the body.


This is some info I found off of http://osiris.sunderland.ac.uk/autism/gut.htm on why our kids get bacteria in the gut. I do think that this clostridia exists in the general population too, especially with those who have irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, crohn's and other digestive disorders. I hope this helps.

Yep, my daughter has clostridia o'plenty, based on her urine MAP test. We've been treating with a 10 day trial of vancomycin (about 6 months ago) and daily Advanced Biocidin (2 drops in the am, 1 in the pm) since then. We're about to retest. I'll let you know how it goes.

Pam (Biochemist at Great Plains Lab) who does the 30 minute consultations told me that Sasha's test showed clostridia and that she suggested using Culturelle for this. It's over the counter and is working well for us.
