IBStatus offers a concise look at the overall health of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is a non-invasive evaluation that uses biotechnology to evaluate digestion, inflammation, and gut flora. With IBStatus, you can quickly identify causes of chronic GI complaints while delivering timely targeted clinical management including whether or not a patient should have a more invasive procedure like a colonoscopy. IBStatus can help identify the cause and guide treatment.
