This test provides information on inflammation and how well food is digested and absorbed. Stool testing can also uncover imbalances in yeast, parasites, and healthy and unhealthy bacteria that live in the large intestine (microbiome).


Systemic diseases can be linked to the GI tract and improving the health of your gut may improve your overall health. Identifying abnormalities through this test allows you and your healthcare provider to develop a personalised treatment plan to improve your symptoms.
