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 – May 28, 2018

1. Weight gain and metabolic dysfunction in adulthood could be linked to maternal omega-3 fatty acid intake during gestation and lactation. A recent mouse study found that maternal PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) production during pregnancy and nursing significantly reduced weight gain and markers for metabolic dysfunction in male offspring fed a high fat diet. The study states that the fatty acid profile in maternal tissue has a profound influence on offspring gut microbiome composition and function, which is long lasting through adulthood. Interestingly, no correlation was found between maternal PUFA profiles and female offspring weight gain. The study also found that maternal fatty acid status influenced offspring metabolism and microbial composition more profoundly during lactation than in utero. Microbiome Journal Read More
