Testing

Conventional GI & next generation testing
Colonoscopy
Investigative test of the colon
Colonoscopy looks at the inner lining of the colon and has many uses beyond just screening for colon cancer. It allows us to assess the general health of the colon, identify inflammation, and remove pre-cancerous polyps. Inflammatory states may be visible during colonoscopy (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), or microscopic and visible only on biopsies taken during the procedure (lymphocytic and collagenous colitis).
Microbiome Sequencing
Next generation microbiome testing
An easy 1-2-3 step process to understanding your gut bacteria, microbiome sequencing gives you a comprehensive breakdown of your microbiome based on research from the NIH Human Microbiome Project. You’ll learn how your gut microbiota compares with others and will find out how well your gut bacteria metabolizes carbohydrates and over 100 other functions.
SIBO Breath Test
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
The Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) Breath Test is a non-invasive, easy to use, at home gastrointestinal test that detects bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine. SIBO is a common gastrointestinal disorder that often underlies chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including bloating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity, and abdominal pain.
Intestinal Permeability
Leaky gut test
The Intestinal Permeability (IP) Assessment is a powerful, noninvasive test taken in the comfort of your home that measures absorption and barrier function of the gut. The small intestine functions as a digestive and absorptive organ for nutrients. It also acts as a powerful immune and physical barrier against excessive pathogenic bacteria, food antigens and other macromolecules.

Gutbliss Weekly Review – April 6, 2018

The question we’re all wondering as we pop our daily probiotic – is probiotic supplementation in healthy adults helpful, or is it all hype? A 2018 review of probiotic supplementation in healthy adult populations analyzed the literature published between 1990 and August 2017. The review included 45 studies. Results showed that probiotic supplementation can lead to improvements in microbial concentration of bacteria specific to the supplement taken, although these improvements are transient and do not result in long-term changes in the gut microbiome. Evidence supports the use of probiotics for improving immune response, stool consistency, bowel movements, and lactobacilli concentration in the vaginal microbiome. However, there is lacking evidence to support the use of probiotics to improve blood lipid profile. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition & Critical Care Read More
