The human body’s gastrointestinal (GI) system is responsible for the proper digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients. If the GI system does not function correctly, it could have numerous effects on your health. The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile is a one-day, take-home test that reveals immediate, actionable information that can be used to manage gut health.
The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile
The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile provides important clinical information for three main functional areas of the gastrointestinal system: digestion/absorption, inflammation/immunology, and gut microbiome, including metabolic indicators, commensal bacteria, bacterial and mycological culture, and parasitology. These test markers indicate areas that may be affecting your GI health and overall health. If you have health concerns that may be related to your GI tract, this one-day, take-home GI test can provide essential diagnostic information that will help your physician help you. It can also determine whether additional testing may be necessary.
The Benefits of GI Testing
GI testing can lead to a better understanding of your gastrointestinal system. It can uncover the cause of chronic conditions and provide directional indications for potential intervention, treatment, and therapy. The information provided by GI testing can prompt lifestyle and dietary changes as well as the use of supplements that can improve your symptoms. The information from your test results can lead to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, celiac disease, other malabsorption disorders, autoimmune disorders, and even mood disorders and autism. All of these conditions can be related to GI health, and with the comprehensive results provided by the GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile, these conditions can be monitored and treated to improve your health and quality of life.
If you believe that your health concerns may be connected to your gastrointestinal system, you can benefit from GI testing.
