Gut Fermentation Syndrome also known
as Auto-Brewery Syndrome is a relatively unknown phenomenon in modern medicine.
Very few articles have been written on the syndrome and most of them are
anecdotal. This article presents a case study of a 61 years old male with a well documented case
of Gut Fermentation Syndrome verified with glucose and carbohydrate challenges.
Stool cultures demonstrated the causative organism as Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The patient was treated with antifungals
and a low carbohydrate diet and the syndrome resolved. Helicobacter pylori was also found and could have been a possible confounding variable
although the symptoms resolved post-treatment of the S. cerevisiae.
shows that co-teaching during the student teaching practicum should be the model
used by colleges and universities. This researcher used an open-ended
questionnaire, a Likert-type scale survey, and individual conferences to
ascertain teacher candidates’, cooperating teachers’,
and university supervisors’ perceptions of the co-teaching model’s
benefits, or lack thereof. The twenty-nine student teachers surveyed represent
a private university and earned degrees in early childhood special education. The
teacher candidates, cooperating teachers, and university supervisors are hired
by the university and are experts in the aforementioned field of education.
Findings reveal that pre-teacher candidates, university supervisors, and
cooperating teachers all believe that mentoring during student teaching using
the co-teaching model is beneficial for both the pre-teacher candidates and
students in the classroom if proper professional development is offered and
continuous and ongoing reflection and planning take place.
