If you indicate recent history of antibiotic use, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you taken other broad-spectrum antibiotics for urinary, respiratory or other infections within the last 5 years? Examples include Ciprofloxacin and Levofloxacin.
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ One course under 2 months
→ One course 2 months or longer
→ Two courses in a single year
→ Three or more courses in a single year

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate broad-spectrum antibiotic use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Vitamin B12 Requirement

Excessive use of antibiotics or anti-convulsants can lead to B12 deficiency.

Yeast / Candida Infection

Antibiotics reduce the number of "friendly bacteria" in the intestinal tract that normally keep the Candida albicans under control.
