This innovative test identifies over 60 different organisms in the colon that may be problematic and beneficial. It is based on PCR testing. Specifically, it identifies the RNA and DNA signature of organisms in the GI tract. I have diagnosed many cases of guardia, heliobacter pylori, candida, and protozoal colonization with this test. Conventional stool test only look for half a dozen pathogens. The GI Map casts out a wide net and looks at many organisms (more than 60) to help understand what may be the problematic organisms.
Digestive function is also assessed. This includes the GI immune system response, and inflammation. Zonulin, a marker for leaky gut, can also be included. This test provides me with invaluable information to effectively treat the the patient.
