The GI Effects® Comprehensive Stool Profile is a series of advanced tests that provide immediate clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. This profile uses cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers to provide valuable information on digestive function and the overall health of the intestinal microbiome.

The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile can reveal important information about the root cause of many common gastrointestinal symptoms like indigestion, abdominal pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. This stool analysis uses biomarkers to differentiate between Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). In addition, GI Effects can be used to evaluate patients with a clinical history that suggests a gastrointestinal infection or dysbiosis. Research indicates that an imbalanced gut microbiome is associated with multiple disease states both within and outside of the GI tract.
