    GI Effects® Gut Pathogen Profile

    $359.00

    A Targeted Stool Test for Optimal Clinical Utility

    The Gut Pathogen Profile is a comprehensive stool assessment for pathogenic or potentially pathogenic organisms. Results provide immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of detectable parasites, bacteria, and yeast.
    This test is useful for
    Patients with a clinical history suggestive of a gastrointestinal infection or dysbiosis can be evaluated with the Gut Pathogen Profile. Testing is ideal for patients with sudden changes in bowel habits, especially for those who have recently traveled abroad, have been camping, had exposure to untreated water, had close contact with animals, or consumed undercooked meat or seafood. Symptoms such as gas, bloating, nausea, abdominal pain, anal itching, and diarrhea may be a result of a parasitic, bacterial, or fungal infection. This profile can also be used to assess efficacy of therapy.

    GI Effects® Microbial Ecology Profile

    $411.00

    A Targeted Stool Test for Optimal Clinical Utility

    The GI Effects Microbial Ecology Profile is the most comprehensive stool test that assesses the diverse gut microbiome. Results provide immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of detectable parasites, bacteria, and yeast, as well as providing valuable assessment of gut microbiota via 24 Commensal Bacteria targets.
    The GI Effects Microbial Ecology Profile is part of the larger GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile, which also provides information about digestion, inflammation, and bacterial metabolism markers. A larger fecal biomarker panel such as the GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile offers the advantage of assessing multiple functional areas that may be contributing to symptoms. For example, diarrhea could stem from multiple causes including pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, inflammation, food allergies, or the presence of a pathogenic or potentially pathogenic organism.

    This test is useful for

    Patients with a clinical history suggestive of a gastrointestinal infection or dysbiosis can be evaluated with the GI Effects Microbial Ecology Profile. Symptoms such as gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation may be a result of a microbial imbalance or infection. This profile can also be used to monitor treatment efficacy to eradicate an organism or to monitor changes to the microbiota.

    Gut microbes are codependent with one another and with their human host, and the health of one affects the other. A sizeable volume of research associates a dysbiotic, or imbalanced gut microbiome with multiple disease states both within and outside of the GI tract.1,2 The microbiome’s diverse metabolic activities ultimately impact the human host, and the human hosts activities ultimately affect the microbiome’s health.

    Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

    $250.00

    Uncover the Cause of Unexplained Abdominal Symptoms with Breath Testing

    SIBO is a common clinical condition and can develop in a variety of patient populations.

    Genova’s SIBO Profiles are non-invasive breath tests which capture exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases following patient ingestion of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

    Clinicians have the option of a 2 or 3-hour SIBO assessment.

    The 3-hour SIBO profile provides insight into gas levels over a longer period of time, and is recommended for patients with slower gastrointestinal transit or constipation.

    This test is useful for

    Conditions commonly associated with SIBO include:

    -IBS
    -IBD
    -Celiac Disease
    -Diabetes
    -Fibromyalgia
    -Rosacea
    -Parkinson’s Disease
    -Obesity

    Risk factors for development of SIBO include structural/anatomic issues, motility disorders, organ system dysfunction, elderly age and various medications (recurrent antibiotics, PPIs) that alter the gut microflora populations.
