With the Genova Diagnostics GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Test, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to your digestive health. This non-invasive, at-home test harnesses state-of-the-art technology to analyze an extensive range of markers, offering a comprehensive assessment of your gut microbiome, digestive function, inflammation levels, immune response, and intestinal health.
Here's what you can expect from the GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Test:
Microbiome Analysis: Your gut microbiome plays a vital role in numerous aspects of your health, from digestion to immune function. This test provides a detailed analysis of the composition and diversity of your gut bacteria, helping us identify imbalances, assess the ratio of beneficial to pathogenic bacteria, and determine potential dysbiosis that may contribute to digestive disorders, inflammation, or other health concerns.
Digestion and Absorption: Optimal digestion and nutrient absorption are crucial for overall well-being. This test examines markers related to your digestive enzymes, pancreatic function, and absorption of fats and carbohydrates. By assessing these factors, we gain insight into potential malabsorption issues, nutrient deficiencies, and imbalances that may be affecting your energy levels, mood, and overall health.
Inflammation and Immunology: Chronic inflammation within the gut can disrupt digestive function and contribute to various health conditions. The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Test evaluates markers associated with gut inflammation, such as calprotectin and lactoferrin. Additionally, it examines your immune response within the gut, providing crucial information on immune dysregulation, potential autoimmune conditions, and chronic gastrointestinal symptoms.
Intestinal Health: The integrity of your intestinal barrier is essential for a healthy gut. This test assesses the presence of zonulin, a protein involved in regulating tight junctions. By analyzing markers for intestinal permeability, we gain insight into the potential presence of leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to systemic inflammation, food sensitivities, and a range of gastrointestinal disorders.
Comprehensive Parasitology: Parasitic infections can often go undetected, leading to persistent gastrointestinal symptoms. The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Test includes an extensive analysis of stool samples to identify the presence of parasites, including protozoa and helminths. By detecting and addressing these infections, we can help alleviate symptoms and restore your gut health.
