Get Comprehensive Information About Your Patient’s Health with This Cutting-Edge Stool Analysis
Gut health is inherent to optimal wellness. The gut, or gastrointestinal tract, is central to health and nutrition because without adequate digestion, nothing gets into the system as it should. While there is a clear connection between overall health and specific gut pathologies, such as irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, or Crohn’s disease, every health condition is impacted by the gut.
Optimize Gut Health for Brain, Immune, and Metabolic Benefits
The Comprehensive Stool Analysis is designed to test the ecology and physiology of the GI tract. Many conditions that are thought to be incurable can be corrected or greatly improved by assessing gut ecology and treating accordingly. Bacteria, yeast, and parasites that may be harbored in the gut can contribute to fatigue, gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. Also, infections in the gut weaken the immune system and create an environment that is more susceptible to systemic infections of all kinds. Harboring a chronic infection in the gut disrupts immune function so that it predisposes a person to autoimmune conditions. Infections in the gut can affect a patient’s levels of inflammation and histamine, or even neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and melatonin.
A Comprehensive Stool Test for Comprehensive Patient Care
All fundamental building blocks for gut health are included in this profile. While traditional stool tests only look for a few gastrointestinal pathogens, this test evaluates hundreds of different species of microbes to assess the impact on intestinal health. By analyzing parasites in three separate specimens, even hard-to-detect parasites will be uncovered.
Symptoms of Poor Gut Health

Precision Point Diagnostics’ Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology Includes:
- Beneficial, commensal, and dysbiotic bacteria
- Parasites x3
- Measures of intestinal permeability (or gut lining health)

For decades, this Comprehensive Stool Analysis has been a cornerstone in integrative and functional medicine because it provides a wealth of clinically relevant findings and actionable results. With the results, you can customize treatment plans and monitor patient improvements. Each major grouping of biomarkers in the stool test can be ordered individually as well, for more specific patient needs and follow-up care.
