QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER
What is FMT?
Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a medical procedure that involves transferring healthy microbiota from a donor's stool into a patient's gut to restore the balance of their gut microbiome.
Is FMT safe?
Most reported adverse effects are mild transient symptoms, including mild fever, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal discomfort and bloating, which resolve quickly without intervention.
What factors are most important for FMT?
The most critical safety components for FMT are appropriate donor screening and high-quality manufacturing. Donor screening is focused on excluding known pathogens to reduce and prevent adverse events. While top-notch manufacturing ensures high-quality, consistent and safe FMT products!
