Overwhelmingly, research indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI health with the proper tools can help practitioners get to the root cause of chronic illness.

The GI-MAP (Microbial Assay Plus) is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing. It relies exclusively on quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more, by targeting the specific DNA of the organisms tested.

Who Should Have the GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis Done?
Almost everyone can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some are looking to achieve optimal health, while others have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.

 

Some conditions that warrant testing are:

Autoimmune diseases

IBS/IBD

Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation

Brain fog

Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis

Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety

Diabetes and weight loss issues

 

Can Infants and Children Benefit from the GI-MAP?
Yes. The GI-MAP is commonly used in infants and children, and can provide insight into conditions related to Attentional Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, and digestive complaints.

 

What is Reported on GI-MAP Test Results?
The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) is an innovative clinical tool that measures gastrointestinal microbiota DNA from a single stool sample with state of the art, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology.

The GI-MAP was designed to detect microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness as well as indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.

The Sample Report details a listing of the microorganisms found on the GI-MAP.
