A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 120000000 CFU/g stool.
The abundance of Coprococcus eutactus is associated with greater bacterial gene richness in the gut.
Coprococcus is a genus of anaerobic cocci which are all part of the human faecal flora. Coprococcus includes those gram-positive, anaerobic cocci that actively ferment carbohydrates, producing butyric and acetic acids with formic or propionic and/or lactic acids. Fermentable carbohydrates are either required or are highly stimulatory for growth and continued subculture. The genus is bio-chemically closely related to Ruminococcus.
Coprococcus may be used as a microbial biomarker to assess the health of the human gastro-intestinal tract. Gut microorganisms maintain gastro-intestinal health and the mounting evidence of gastro-intestinal problems in autistic children makes a link between autism and intestinal microbiota highly probable.
– In IBS, reduced abundance reported (in association with elevated Ruminococcus spp.)
– In patients with Parkinson’s diseases reduced content of Coprococcus eutactus have been shown. [L]
– Coprococcus may be less prevalent in autistic children compared to neurotypical children; may be result of intestinal disaccharidase deficiencies common in autism.

"I was really concerned about my lab results and my GP was not able to see me for another week. Through HealthMatters I was able to interpret my results instantly."
"I've been keeping all my lab results in a spreadsheet, covering approximately 20 years. The HealthMatters team helped me upload that info into the cloud. I can show this data to my family and doctors now easily."
"I had no idea what my lab results meant. Here I found all the biomarkers that I was looking for online. Finally, I have not only organized them all neatly in one place, but I am also grateful to be able to understand what they mean."
