Many chronic health issues are caused by inflammation in the digestive tract and abnormal levels of yeast/candida, pathogenic bacteria or other parasitic microbes. We offer a Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA)™ from Genova Diagnostics to help evaluate digestive aliments and we offer natural solutions for most digestive conditions including:
- Celiac disease
- Crohn's disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Gas and bloating
- Malabsorption issues
- Leaky gut syndrome
The CDSA™ evaluates digestion and absorption, bacterial balance and metabolism, yeast and immune status. It includes all of the following markers of digestive health:
Digestion Markers: adequate digestive enzyme production, maldigestion, chymotrypsin, short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), meat fibers and vegetable fibers.
Absorption Markers: Elevated levels of the listed fatty acids may indicate maldigestion, malabsorption, altered transit time, and small bowel bacterial overgrowth.
Metabolic Markers: These markers identify imbalances that are associated with increased toxic burden, small bowel bacterial overgrowth or severe inflammation. Markers include beneficial SCFAs, n-butyrate, beta-glucuronidase, pH, fecal lactoferrin, macroscopic exam, and occult blood.
Microbiology Markers: Provides quantitative measures of the good bacteria–Lactobacillis and bifidobacterium, pathogenic bacteria and yeast/candida levels.
Parasitology: (EIA and microscopic evaluation) This evaluation quantifies all ova and parasites identified.
Information and CDSA™ lab testing is provided by Genova Diagnostics.
