Gut Tests

The gut houses literally trillions of bacterial cells, which play an essential role in many aspects of human health."

1. Collection

You woud receive the packages from me in which you could do the stool collection at home and post it accordantly.

2. Analysis

The lab starts the analysis as soon as the samples arrives. It takes up to 10 working days to get the results

3. Reporting

I write a comprehensive report based on the results of the tests and I make correlations to other possible lab tests and our intake

4. Nutrition

With the report done, I am able to design a personalised nutrition programme. A real tailor-made nutrition

The Gut Microbiome​

The gut microbiome helps us effectively break down food, produces vitamins, neurotransmitters and other essential chemical messengers. It protects our gut against invasion by foreign pathogens and communicates directly with the immune system. The microbiome is easily damaged by a modern diet, drugs, alcohol, stress and other toxins. When this happens it causes low-grade inflammation that can trigger leaky gut.

I provide access to a range of comprehensive tests to assess the health of your gut so I can provide you with the best personalised advice.

Smart DNA Gut Microbiome Test

 

This is by far our most advanced gut test available. It tests the DNA of all bacteria excreted in the stool and is able to detect even the smallest level of bacteria. It is able to provide detailed information of the health of the gut, the state of the microbiome and how it may be affecting your health.

 

This test is ideal for people who have had chronic, unexplained gut problems, autoimmune disease or chronic disease. 

Comprehensive Stool and Digestive Function Analysis

 

This is a gold standard general stool test, it gives us a wide range of information including:

  • Digestive enzyme function

  • Pancreatic enzyme activity

  • Indicates liver, bile and gall bladder dysfunction

  • Markers of inflammation

  • Short chain fatty acids – markers of gut wall health

  • Screens for all pathogenic bacteria, parasites and yeasts

  • Measures levels of important commensal (friendly) bacteria

  • Reports on level of dysbiosis, which is indicative of leaky gut

Further tests could be asked accordantly with your needs. The extra tests could be eventually one of the following:

  • SIBO (Small intestine bacterial overgrowth)

  • Gluten en Lactose intolerance

  • Allergy reactions

Functional Testing Vs Standard Medical Stool Testing

 

Standard stool tests identify a limited number of major bacterial infections in the gut such as salmonella, shigella and campylobacter, these types of tests are very useful when identifying food poisoning. The tests I use will also identify these types of more serious infections as well as screening for other bacteria and parasites that may not necessarily be reported on standard testing.

Rebalancing the Gut

 

Anyone who has had chronic gut problems will tell you that it can ruin their life. Bloating, constipation, loose bowels, abdominal distention, indigestion and being unsure about what foods might set off the next round of gut problems can significantly impact on quality of life. I have treatment programmes to help you restore healthy gut function. I can help you improve your digestion, banish bloating and regulate your bowels.

 

I give you guidance on a nutritious, fresh eating plan, specific supplementation and help you regain your energy and digestive health. If you would like to change your gut health contact us today.

How it works

How much it costs

Because I work with different tests, it varies accordantly to the health issues or symptoms that you may be experiencing. You will be always informed what tests I am prescribing and what the costs are before you order the tests.

But for the purpose of giving you an estimation, here you see how much it costs to do a complete gut test

Complet Test: €299,00

Prices are included VAT.

  • Digestion parametres: pH, fat secretion, startch and fibres, consistency and colour

  • Aerobic gut flora: Enterobacteriaceae, E.coli, Lactobacillus spp. and Enterococcus spp.

  • Bifidobacterium spp.

  • Determine enterotype

  • Yeast and fungus ( mainly Candida type)

  • Inflammation markers: calprotectine, secretoir IgA, beta-defensine

  • Gluten intolerance markers: anti-gliadine, anti-ht-transglutaminase

  • Leaky gut markers: zonuline

  • Gut parasites: D.fragilis and B.hominis

 

There are more tests which can be specific to you and perhaps much cheaper than this. So consult me to understand what suits you the best.
