The table indicates the percentage of participants with detectable (> 0) bacteria and in parenthesis average values and standard deviation.

Numerical values of bacteriology culture ranged from 0-4. Variations in cultured and microscopic concentrations are typical due to the non-uniform distribution of yeast in the stool.
