Why test your gut microbiome?
The gut is home to trillions of microorganisms that we now know play a pivotal role in our health.
We also know that when the microbiome gets disrupted and becomes out of balance, this can lead to digestive problems like IBS, and health problems in general, from skin problems, to chronic fatigue and joint pain. Weight gain, weight loss, trouble sleeping, PMS and even autoimmunity.
Thanks to recent advances in stool testing, we can now get an accurate screenshot of the microbiome to determine the diversity and abundance - which simply means: we can now test how "in balance" your gut microbiome is. We can also test for certain pathogenic types of microorganisms or "bad guys", that we know cause problems in the gut, like diarrhea and constipation.
With this information, we can then determine the most accurate treatment path and bring you back to balance.
About our testing
Due to recent advancements in technology and scientific research, at-home health testing is fasting gaining popularity.
Here at The Gut Health Clinic, we have source what we believe to be the most advanced and clinically applicable stool test available today.
We use the GI360 Profile by Doctor's Data, which utalises both multiplex PCR molecular technology and growth-based culture - a first of it's kind in the world of stool testing.
About The GI360 Profile:
This stool test will provide the following information about your gut microbiome:
Microbiome Diversity and Abundance: the GI360 Profile identifies the abundance and diversity of over 50 known species in the human gut microbiome. It then provides a "dysbiosis index number", which is calculated with score 1 to 5 based on the overall bacterial abundance and profile within the patient's sample as compared to a reference population. Values above 2 indicate a microbiome profile that differs from what we would expect in a healthy person.
Identification of Viruses, Pathogens and Parasites: The GI360 Profile can identify the presence of 15 pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and parasites through PCR technology, as well as further analysis for parasites, bacteria and yeast using microscopy. Viruses, pathogens and parasites are common underlying causes to both acute and chronic digestive issues.
Bacterial and Fungal Susceptibilities: The GI360 Profile provides susceptibility information by testing any pathogens found in a sample against both natural and prescriptive antimicrobial agents to determine the most favourable treatment path.
Consider the GI360 Profile for:
MUCOSAL BARRIER DYSFUNCTION
CHRONIC OR ACUTE DIARRHEA
FEVER AND VOMITING
