The GI Effects® Profiles are advanced stool tests that provide immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers, these tests can reveal important information about the root cause of many common gastrointestinal symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation.
The GI Effects Profiles go beyond standard parameters for identifying gastrointestinal disorders. The profiles use the best of molecular, microscopic, and immunoassay approaches to evaluate anaerobes, parasites, firmicutes/bacteriodetes ratio, absorption, inflammation, and sensitivities.
We offer comprehensive testing for all parasites on every parasitology exam ordered. Testing incorporates a microscopic ova and parasite (O&P) exam, as well as 6 protozoan PCR targets, with the novel reflex Blastocystis spp. subtyping 1-9. A macroscopic examination for worms is included in the Gut Pathogen Profile and as an add-on to the GI Effects profiles.
