Gut Health

Uncover the root cause of IBS, IBD, acid reflux, abdominal pain, and other digestive conditions
with our comprehensive gut health testing.

Our laboratory uses stool, breath, and urine specimens to uncover information about gut inflammation, immune function, digestion, absorption, the microbiome, infections, and gut mucosal integrity.

A comprehensive stool panel provides an ideal starting place for assessing gastrointestinal complaints. It offers the advantage of casting a wide net, evaluating multiple functions in one profile. A stool analysis assesses digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome, which may contribute to symptoms.

In addition to common gastrointestinal complaints, clinicians often assess gut health for numerous other conditions including autoimmune diseases, mood disorders, skin and others. There is a tremendous amount of research linking GI function and the gut microbiome to overall health.

Benefits of Gastrointestinal Testing

Improved Digestion

Indigestion, bloating, and upset stomach can be the result of many conditions including SIBO, pancreatic insufficiency, and others. Fortunately, these underlying causes can be treated.

Better Regularity

Testing can give insight into causes of IBS, constipation, or diarrhoea. Addressing the cause can normalise stool consistency and frequency.

Nutrient Absorption

Gut inflammation, SIBO, pancreatic insufficiency, and other conditions can result in maldigestion or malabsorption of nutrients. Additionally, a healthy microbiome produces several key vitamins for overall health.
