A simple stool test can by used to detect parasitic or bacterial infections, yeast infections, markers for intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome), digestive function, gut inflammation, and more.
Ongoing gastrointestinal (GI) complaints or symptoms are among the most common reasons that patients seek medical care.
Symptoms associated with GI disorders include:
- Persistent diarrhea
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Malabsorption (Leaky Gut Syndrome)
- Chronic reflux disease (GERD)
Testing your digestive and absorptive functions at a deeper level may help determine the root cause of these symptoms, detect the presence of opportunistic pathogens that can be disrupting your gut health, and be used to monitor the effectiveness of nutrition, digestion, and supplement protocols.
This test is very useful for help determining the underlying cause of many conditions:
- Gastrointestinal Symptoms
- Autoimmune Disease
- Joint Pain
- IBD/IBS (Irritable Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
- Food Sensitivities
- Nutritional Deficiencies
- Skin Conditions (such as Atopic Dermatitis)
This test can also determine natural agents that can be used to treat gastrointestinal infections such as yeast, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infections.
