SIBO The SIBO test is a breath test that assesses bacteria levels in the small intestine. Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a condition that can underlie various complaints such as gas, bloating, pain, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances, constipation, diarrhoea, fatigue, nutrient deficiencies and weight issues. SIBO significantly damages the cells of the small intestine and can affect the absorption of nutrients. Damage to the intestinal lining can also lead to impaired gut permeability (leaky gut) which can cause food sensitivities, inflammation throughout the body and autoimmune conditions.
NutriPATH Comprehensive Stool Analysis Comprehensive stool analysis by NutriPATH offers an in depth look at the overall health of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and assesses bacteria, yeasts and parasites. It is recommended for symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea, cramping, food sensitivities and suspected candida overgrowth. This profile also includes sensitivity testing meaning that when colonising bacteria or yeasts are detected, they are tested against a panel of natural anti-microbial and anti-fungal agents to assist the choice of the most effective treatment options.
This test examines the presence of imbalanced gut bacteria, yeasts and parasites as well as evaluation of digestion, absorption, pancreatic function, and inflammation such as Transglutaminase IgA (Coeliac marker), Eosinophil Protein X, Calprotectin, M2 Pyruvate Kinase (M2-PK) and H.Pylori. Microbes are tested via microscope analysis and DNA analysis.
NutriPATH Complete Microbiome Mapping The Complete Microbiome Mapping Test assess the microbiome within the gut, with the focus on microbes that disrupt normal microbial balance and contribute to illness. Using DNA testing, this is the most sensitive assessment of microorganisms available.
The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers. It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses, and parasites as well as inflammation markers such as calprotectin, digestive markers such as pancreatic elastase, immune markers such as secretory IgA, Coeliac marker transglutiminase IgA, beta-glucuronidase and zonulin.
