    I’m keen to have my microbiome tested but see that on website only one company is mentioned and not available in UK. Has anyone tried a UK based company that they can recommend or any to avoid. Thanks.

    Hi Mumra
    I too am interested in getting my microbiome tested in the UK, but am interested in a company who does the whole package, including interpreting the results and giving clinical recommendations etc. Let me know if you come across such a company. Thanks Marina

    I’ve done a lot of work with British Gut- check out their website. Its very cheap (£75 from memory) and when you get the results I’m happy (accredited!) to provide interpretation and advise.. UBiome is one of my other recommendations

    Thank you Graham for the information. I’m interested because my son has suffered from CFS for several years now, needs help.

    Hi I would like to get my microbiome tested but have started Methotrexate injections two weeks ago to try to control Rheumatoid Arthritis. I’ve been on a restricted diet for 3 months now. I don’t know if the Methotrexate would impact on the microbiome test results – can anyone advise please (I’m assuming it would which is why I haven’t gone ahead yet).

    Yes it likely would; nevertheless I’d still be inclined to have a test done

    Thanks for your advice. I am inclined to get a test done anyway as you say.

    Im also keen on getting my microbiome tested (in EU), and I wonder what kind of results I can expect, reading from your comments that ‘interpretation and advice’ apprantly not always is included?
    Any reccomendations on where to get a test including interpretation and advice would be great!
