Gut Flora Culture and Sensitivities
The Microbiology stool profile includes comprehensive bacteriology and yeast cultures to identify beneficial flora, imbalanced flora including Clostridium species, and dysbiotic flora, as well as detection of infectious pathogens. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed for appropriate bacterial and fungal species.
The Microbiology stool profile maybe ideal for follow-up to the Comprehensive Stool Analysis when looking for a specific abnormality, to monitor certain microbial balances, or to assess treatment efficacy. We strongly recommend the Comprehensive Stool Analysis as the initial assessment for a more thorough evaluation of gut function.
