GI EFFECTS COMPREHENSIVE STOOL PROFILE by Genova Diagnostics - (290)

GI Effects is an innovative stool test measuring premier biomarkers of gastrointestinal function, providing valuable clinical insight into digestive performance, gut inflammation, and the gut microbiome — areas affecting not only GI health, but overall health as well.


An advanced stool test to assess:
Digestion and absorption
Inflammation and immunology
Gut microbiome
Parasitology


GI Effects assesses three critical areas of gut health: digestive function, gut inflammation, and the gut microbiome. For patients with symptoms that may have gastrointestinal dysfunction as their root cause, comprehensive stool diagnostics provide an effective tool for gaining clinical insight into next steps.

In addition to performing critical digestive functions, the intestinal tract contains significant amounts of organisms — the gut microbiome. Imbalances in this internal ecosystem have been associated in the scientific literature with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

  • Diabetes

  • Obesity

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Celiac and Other Malabsorption Disorders 

  • Mood Disorders

  • Autoimmune

  • Autism 

Assessing and normalizing GI function can have profound effects on overall health, leading to improvement in these and other conditions. The GI Effects®Comprehensive Stool Profile is a critical clinical tool in the management of patients presenting with symptoms that can be associated with compromised gut health.
