GI Health Panel

The GI Health Panel™ is a non-invasive screen of the gastro-intestinal tract and its function. It includes at least 15-22 individual but related tests. Stool and saliva samples are submitted by the patient after home collection.

To insure high sensitivity and specifity of pathogenic organism detection, Diagnos-Techs employs a variety of methods in the GI Health Panel™ tests. These tests utilize proven biochemical and state of the art immunological and other methods. The panel includes:

  • Pathogen screening: multiple bacteria, fungi, yeast, worms and various parasites. 
  • Levels of beneficial bacteria
  • H.pylori detection
  • Digestion related screens: enzyme levels and immunochemical markers for intolerance to common offending foods such as gluten, dairy, soy and eggs. 
  • Intestinal function markers to evaluate irritation and inflammation; markers indicate overall status of gut immunity and integrity, i.e. occult blood, etc.
