Gut Flora Culture and Sensitivities

The Microbiology stool profile may be 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.

  • What Patients Might Benefit

    Many individuals experience dysbiosis, where an imbalance of microflora leads to an overgrowth of non-beneficial or even pathogenic microorganisms. This can be caused by factors such as exposure to toxins, antibiotic use, chronic consumption of processed foods, and high stress levels. Dysbiosis can lead to chronic symptoms like irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases, fatigue, chronic headaches, and food allergies.
