What does it mean if your Bifidobacterium longum result is too low?

Long-term consumption of Mediterranean diet partially restored B. longum in metabolic syndrome patients [L].

What does it mean if your Bifidobacterium longum result is too high?

- B. longum and B. adolescentis supressed by rice in 26 mongolian individuals who consumed wheat, rice, and oats as the sole carbohydrate staple food for a week each. [L]

- A low FODMAP diet in 52 IBD patients resulted in lower Bifidobacterium adolescentis, Bifidobacterium longum, and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii than patients on a control diet. However, microbiome diversity and markers of inflammation did not differ between the IBD and control groups. [L]

- A small study of 10 healthy subjects showed reduced Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Bifidobacterium longum after 1 month on a gluten-free diet (GFD). [L]
