Digestive complaints are one of the most important problems to discuss with your physician. Symptoms are commonly overlooked or labeled with a broad diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the underlying cause ignored. Gastrointestinal (GI) testing can help determine that cause by identifying an imbalance in healthy bacteria, parasitic or candida infection, food sensitivities and much more. Analysis of digestive enzymes and testing for nutrient levels can also help. Testing can help us get you back on track quicker with a more focused treatment plan. For more information regarding common diagnoses and complaints, please visit our Common Condition page. Various labs are available depending upon your symptoms.
Testing options include:
- Stool Testing (for bacteria, parasites, candida, food antibodies, digestive enzymes and more)
- SIBO Breath Test (for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
- Food allergy Panels (for more information, see below)
- Micronutrient Testing
