The Comprehensive Stool Analysis by Doctor's Data is a diagnostic test that analyzes stool samples to evaluate the health of the digestive system and detect any imbalances or abnormalities that may be contributing to gastrointestinal symptoms.

This test provides a comprehensive assessment of digestive function by evaluating the levels of digestive enzymes, gut bacteria, and other key markers in the stool. It can detect imbalances in gut function, such as low levels of digestive enzymes, that may be contributing to digestive symptoms. It can also identify the presence of harmful bacteria, such as pathogenic strains of E. coli, as well as yeast overgrowth and parasitic infections.

The test provides information about the levels of beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut, which can provide insight into the overall health of the digestive system. It can also evaluate the presence of inflammation in the gut, which can be an indicator of inflammatory bowel disease or other conditions.

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis by Doctor's Data is suitable for anyone experiencing digestive symptoms, such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, or changes in bowel habits. It can also be used as a preventative measure to evaluate the health of the digestive system and identify any potential issues before they become more serious.

Overall, this test is a valuable tool for evaluating the health of the digestive system and identifying any imbalances or abnormalities that may be contributing to gastrointestinal symptoms. It can provide important information to guide treatment decisions and support overall digestive health.

What Doctor Birch Says

This is a fantastic stool test for a single collection to assess the status of your beneficial bacteria, possible presence of dysbiotic bacteria, yeast, and a full analysis of your stool to assess digestion, short chain fatty acids, and inflammation. The test will also tell you how to kill the potential overgrowth you are dealing with. Feel free to purchase this kit and book a consultation with us to start or continue your journey with us. Wishing you all the best.

Detailed Information

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis (CSA) is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic assessment that permits practitioners to objectively evaluate the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria, pathogenic bacteria, yeast/fungus by culture, PCR, and other gold standard methods. Precise identification of pathogenic species and susceptibility testing greatly facilitates selection of the most appropriate pharmaceutical or natural treatment agents.

Important information regarding the efficiency of digestion and absorption can be gleaned from the measurement of the fecal levels of elastase (pancreatic exocrine sufficiency), fat, muscle and vegetable fibers, and carbohydrates.

Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients. The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as calprotectin, , lactoferrin, and lysozyme via this stool test. These markers can be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life-threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires lifelong treatment, and less severe inflammation that can be associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) which is frequently due to the presence of enteroinvasive pathogens. Calprotectin and lactoferrin are only markedly elevated prior to and during the active phases of IBD, but not with IBS. Monitoring these levels in patients with IBD can therefore facilitate timely treatment of IBD, and can be ordered separately. Since the vast majority of secretory IgA (sIgA) is normally present in the GI tract, where it prevents binding of pathogens and antigens to the mucosal membrane, it is essential to know the status of sIgA in the gut. sIgA is the only bona fide marker of humoral immune status in the GI tract.

Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste. To obtain benefits from food that is consumed, nutrients must be appropriately digested and then efficiently absorbed into portal circulation. Microbes, larger-sized particles of fiber, and undigested foodstuffs should remain within the intestinal lumen. Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status and nutritional deficiencies. Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function, as in "leaky gut syndrome," can result from a number of causes including:

Low gastric acid production
Chronic maldigestion
Food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces
Bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis)
Pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and relate dtoxic irritants
The use of NSAIDs and antibiotics
Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload from substances that are usually kept in the confines of the bowel for elimination. After performing a stool test, efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions incorporates a comprehensive guided approach that should include consideration of elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants, supplementation of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics, and repair of the mucosal barrier.

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis does not include analysis for parasites. For a stool test that includes assessment of the presence for parasites, consider the Comprehensive Stool Analysis + Parasitology.
