Functional Medicine Testing - Gut Zoomer
The Gut Zoomer stool test allows us to look at populations of bacteria as well as yeast and parasites which can reside in the gut. This test also looks at your digestive capacity, gut related inflammatory markers, short chained fatty acids and more.
Here are some examples of markers measured and actionable treatment recommendations seen on the Gut Zoomer:
The Gut Zoomer measures zonulin levels which can assess if you have leaky gut syndrome. Treatment for leaky gut syndrome is multifaceted and includes nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle modification.
Many individuals react to gluten even if they don’t have celiac genes. The fecal anti gliadin marker can provide insight into how you are reacting to gluten and if you should go on a gluten free diet.
Certain beneficial bacteria can be increased through the foods we eat. For example: Akkermansia Muciniphila is a bacterium which is important to the immune system, for gut health, and reduction of your risk for chronic diseases or obesity. These bacteria love fish oil as well as foods with red polyphenols like strawberries, raspberries, pomegranate, and cranberries.
