Comprehensive Stool TestingComprehensive stool testing can be helpful in determining the root cause of a variety of digestive disorders. Dr. King offers the Genova GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile because of its broad range of markers that can tell a patient how well they are:
- Breaking down and absorbing food
- If there is inflammation and if so, what kind
- What are the metabolites that their microbiome is making (SFCA profile)
- PCR and culture of bacteria, parasites, and yeast
- PCR of 25 important commensal bacteria
- Bacterial abundance
Once functional imbalances and digestive and microbiome deficiencies have been identified they can be successfully treated and the microbiome can be properly fed to maximize digestive health.
