Sequential Stool Testing to Monitor Progress in People with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Susan Blum, MD


In the past decade, it has become clear that gut microbial dysbiosis and increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) can be foundational triggers for the onset of inflammatory arthritis such as RA. There is also widespread support in both the literature and functional-medicine practice for treating inflammatory diseases by treating the gut.

In this webinar, Dr. Susan Blum will review specific case studies and share how she interprets and uses sequential stool testing to determine the next steps in treatment, along with the specific protocols she has found to be effective.

Clinical takeaways:

  1. Learn about the role of gut microbial dysbiosis and leaky gut in triggering inflammatory arthritis.
  2. Understand the use of stool testing to determine different patterns in the gut microbiome and direct treatment.
  3. Learn how to treat the gut to treat the joints and how to monitor progress with sequential stool testing.
