Had a basic lab panel done.
Context – I have several problematic gut-oriented health issues right now including (possibly) SIBO, parasites, high serotonin, and a history of significant depression and mild anxiety closely related to what I eat. Just before the current lab draw I was taking herbal antibiotics to kill off the problematic SIBO bugs. It was not successful, and I stopped several days before the labs.
- Cholesterol has come down for some reason. I wonder if my gut problems are at the root of this.
- Same with hs-CRP – still high at 6.83, but that’s the lowest reading I’ve had since I started testing almost 3 years ago.
