|The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile is an advanced stool test that provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health.
The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile can reveal important information about the root cause of many common gastrointestinal symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and constipation.
This stool analysis utilizes biomarkers such as Calprotectin to differentiate between Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This test also offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome.
We can test for the following additional Biomarkers if required:
- Campylobacter (£60)
- Clostridium difficile (£60)
- Escherichia coli (£60)
- Eosinophil Protein X (IB status) (£60)
- Helicobacter pylori (£60)
In recent years, intestinal permeability, or "leaky gut," has been linked to an increasing number of chronic inflammatory diseases, and zonulin, a small protein produced in the gut.
We do a Zonulin assessment as part of the Gastro-intestinal health check to analyse intestinal permeability.
Patients that may benefit from a Zonulin assessment are those with:
- Leaky gut symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivity.
- Coeliac Disease.
- GI Disorders - gluten sensitivity, IBS.
- Cardiometabolic Diseases - Diabetes, Obesity, Insulin resistance.
