Fecal Transplant Is Linked to a Patient's Death, the FDA Warns
https://www.nytimes.com › 2019/06/13 › health › fecal-transplant-fda
First of all it is clear from the article (and what my friend who has worked in hospital with patients who got FMT said )– that FMT is still available for people who are really ill and might otherwise not make it Perhaps that includes me as I am labeled "immuno suppressed" even though I feel well right now. Furthermore, in regard to less ill people, people who are not immuno suppressed or really really sick, I see that it is not actually saying FMT can't be done for them but that the doctors need to get in place something that guarantees that the transplanted fecal matter has been tested for all drug resistant bacteria. So it's for our safety.
