BLASTOCYSTIS SUB-TYPING AND BOTANICALS TREATMMENTS

Blasto is complicated, and knowing what you’re dealing with can help better target treatments. Genova Diagnsotics just started subtyping Blastocystis, should that matter to clinicians and patients? It might. Blastocystis is a unicellular eukaryotic microorganism that has extensive genetic diversity, and is often identified as the most common organism reported in human fecal samples. Blastocystis sp. are assigned to one of nine subtypes.

The rate limiting amino acid in de novo synthesis of GSH in metabolic disease appears to be glycine. People withmetabolic liver disease many have increased GSH needs. Vegetarians have a higher intake of non-essential amino acids including glycine and serine.
