Who Should Have the GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis Done?Almost every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some patients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other patients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years. Some conditions that warrant testing are:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Digestive complaints, diarrhea, or constipation
- Brain fog
- Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis
- Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
- Diabetes and weight loss issues
The GI-MAP (GI Microbial Assay Plus) stool test utilizes cutting-edge, Quantitative PCR technology to provide a true DNA/PCR-based stool test. This technology has high sensitivity, specificity, and a rapid turnaround. The GI pathogens include bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Continuing with this platform, the GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites, and antibiotic resistance genes. And the Plus refers to immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Calprotectin, and Anti-gliadin testing.
