GI Effects Testing
The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile is an advanced stool test that provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gut health.
GI Effects is an innovative stool test designed to assess the three critical areas of gut health:
digestive function, gut inflammation, and the gut microbiome—areas affecting not only GI health, but overall health as well. For patients with symptoms that may have gastrointestinal dysfunction as their root cause, comprehensive stool diagnostics provide an effective tool for gaining clinical insight into next steps.
In addition to performing critical digestive functions, the intestinal tract contains significant amounts of organisms. Imbalances in this internal ecosystem have been associated in the scientific literature with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to:
▪ Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
▪ Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
▪ Cardiovascular Disease
▪ Celiac and Other Malabsorption Disorders
▪ Mood Disorders
Assessing and normalizing GI function can have profound effects on overall health, leading to improvement in these and other conditions. Functional testing can help uncover the root cause of many chronic conditions that often frustrate both physician and patient. As identified functional imbalances and inadequacies become more normalized through targeted dietary, lifestyle, and supplementation therapeutics, symptoms often improve for many patients.
