Monitor your calprotectin at home

IBDoc

The Bühlmann company has recently announced IBDoc, a home test for monitoring your calprotectin level.

It requires their test kit and an app for your smart phone. There is also an online component for sharing info with your doc, though I’m not sure if that is a requirement. I also couldn’t find a price, so for now am assuming that you’d need a prescription to get the test kits.

Researches at the Technische Universität München have shown in a mouse model that bacterial imbalance in the gut can lead to a Chrohn’s-like inflammation. Previously, it was not know wether an unbalanced gut microbiota was the cause or result of inflammation. Their research shows that it is the cause. Here’s your link.

Spam sucks: A commenting change

I previously have had commenting wide open. It worked fine for a long time, but now I’m getting so much spam that I’m requiring commentors to give a name and email. I don’t want your name and email, but I’m hoping that it will curb the amount of junk that fills up this blog and wastes my time.

My only other option is turning commenting off. That would be a bummer because it would eliminate the public back and forth that the silent majority can benefit from. Note that I’m still leaving my contact info in the sidebar if you want to avoid the blog commenting altogether.

Crohn’s disease bacterial profile revealed

Article From Scientific American:

The largest study of its kind has revealed for the first time the specific gut bacteria involved in Crohn’s disease, which afflicts an estimated 700,000 Americans with chronic, painful diarrhea and bleeding, among other unpleasant symptoms. With a better understanding of how the microbial ecosystem changes in children who suffer from the disease, researchers have gained clues that could someday lead to better diagnosis and treatment.
