GI Effects Stool Testing

Taking Control of your Gastrointestinal Symptoms

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the pathway food takes from your mouth, through the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines wherein nutrients are extracted for the needs of the body. Proper gastrointestinal function is critical for good health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, which, when imbalanced, have been associated with a wide variety of common illnesses. Additionally, balancing gut microbiota is key for improving core gastrointestinal functions, such as digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as metabolic functions. Poor digestion and malabsorption may impact immune function, optimum nutritional status, and mood.
Advanced stool testing can help your health care provider understand what your gut is trying to say. Gut health assessment may reveal inflammation, infection, bacterial imbalances, or an insufficiency in something that may be essential to the body. GI Effects Stool Profiles may help identify and target treatments for many gastrointestinal conditions, looking at specific biomarkers that help determine the root cause(s) of your digestive discomfort, aid in differentiating between Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) or other GI conditions, and support identification of targeted treatments for various GI issues.
