This test uses 3 stool and 2 saliva specimens to evaluate for: yeast/fungus, parasites (C. difficile toxins, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Ameba histolytica, Tapeworm, Roundworm, Toxoplasma, Trichinella), pathogenic bacteria, H. Pylori, Clostridium dificile antigen, digestive function (chymotrypsin), occult blood (hidden GI bleeding), anti-Chymotrypsin (intestine inflammation marker) and lysozyme (colon inflammation marker).
This profile provides a complete assessment of gut function and often identifies problems overlooked by conventional intestinal tests such as barium studies and endoscopy. A useful tool in any chronic GI complaint (IBS, GERD) and in systemic disease (cancer, autoimmune, chronic respiratory infections, etc.).
Immune globulins (IgA) to cow’s milk, soy and egg are also evaluated.
