    Low on Short Chain Fatty Acids in GI Test

    I had a GI profile test done and most of my good bacteria was in a good range, but my SCFA levels were very low except for Acetate, which was very high. What does this all mean? Anyone experience this and how to improve my results?

    Snapshot reading? Maybe it changes all day long and you just caught your tummy with its pants down.

    Total SCFA= 63 (which is low on the graph, could be higher)
    n-butyrate= Low 3.3%
    Acetate= High 81%
    Butyrate= Low 5%
    Propionate= 13% (low on the scale but within range)
    Valerate= 1.2% (low on scale but within range)

    By the way, this is a Metametrix GI profile, which is an excellent test at measuring bacteria etc. It has been helpful in helping me balance my gut and find the specific things that need tweeking.
