Our laboratory uses stool, breath, and urine specimens to uncover information about gut inflammation, immune function, digestion, absorption, the microbiome, infections, and gut mucosal integrity.
A comprehensive stool panel provides an ideal starting place for assessing gastrointestinal complaints. It offers the advantage of casting a wide net, evaluating multiple functions in one profile. A stool analysis assesses digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome, which may contribute to symptoms.
In addition to common gastrointestinal complaints, clinicians often assess gut health for numerous other conditions including autoimmune diseases, mood disorders, skin and others. There is a tremendous amount of research linking GI function and the gut microbiome to overall health.
