Gastrointestinal conditions – stool diagnostics

Unexplained chronic gastrointestinal and digestive disorders occur very frequently. Modern stool diagnostics forms the foundation for more extensive promising therapeutic approaches. It is also of assistance to patients who suffer from disease states and symptoms that could have their origin in a disturbed gastrointestinal system, such as for example, a weakened immune system, allergies, migraine, etc. The causes may lie in dysbiosis (equilibrium disorder of the intestinal flora), latent infection, parasitosis, malabsorption/maldigestion, inflammatory reaction, food intolerance or leaky gut, among others.

Stool diagnostic

Possible indications

  • Irritable bowel/irritable colon
  • Inflammatory intestinal disorders
  • Suspected gluten intolerance
  • Flatulence
  • Constipation, diarrhea
  • Digestive disorders
  • Bad breath
  • Underweight, overweight
  • General susceptibility to infection
  • Food intolerances more
  • Allergies, neurodermitis
  • Autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Migraine
  • Chronic stress, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), depressive states
  • and others

Possible analyses

  • Flora Status (microbiological analysis of the most important aerobic and anaerobic key microbes, as well as molds and yeasts of the stool flora)
  • Basic Profile Intestinal Tract (flora status and other biochemical parameters for detection of intestinal inflammations, increased intestinal permeability, gluten intolerance, digestive weakness, as well as for determination of the immune status)
  • Gluten Intolerance (detection of gliadin and transglutaminase antibodies in stool and/or serum)
  • Histamine in stool (detection of imbalances between the accumulating amount of histamine and the DAO activity [diamino-oxidase = histamine degrading enzyme])
