Gastrointestinal

Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology (Stool)

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.

Advanced Intestinal Barrier Assessment (Plasma)

Precision Point Diagnostics’ Advanced IBA profile takes a deep dive into intestinal barrier function. Using a collection of innovative biomarkers, this test helps clinicians determine if their patients have intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut.” Intestinal permeability has been suggested as a root cause of autoimmune diseases, systemic inflammation, and food sensitivities. Healing the gut barrier is so pivotal for resolving chronic disease that if it isn’t addressed, other treatments will have little to no effect.

FAQs

Which medications should I avoid before testing?

Precision Allergy 88 & Precision Airborne Allergy

Steroids should be discontinued 72 hours before testing

Some examples of steroids include:

  • triamcinolone
  • cortisone
  • prednisone
  • methylprednisolone.

Intestinal Barrier Assessment:

  1. Zonulin- No interactions
  2. LPS

Antibiotics will not affect the test, but better to finish a course of antibiotics first to see how it alters LPS response. If patient is on long term on-going antibiotics, can be done at same time, but expect that LPS immune response would be higher if not on antibiotics

  1. Histamine

Avoid anti-histamines following medications for at least 24 hours

Some anti-histamines include:

  • Brompheniramine (Dimetane)
  • Cetirizine (Zyrtec)
  • Chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton)
  • Clemastine (Tavist)
  • Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
  • Fexofenadine (Allegra)
  • Loratadine (Alavert, Claritin)
  1. DAO
  • Tagamet and SSRIs will lower DAO

Adrenal Stress Test

Avoid Steroids for 72 hours

Do not take DHEA on morning of test

Thyroid profile

Do not take thyroid medications on morning of test

Oxidative Stress Test

No medication interactions

I am a Patient, can I order a Test directly through your Lab?

Laboratory regulations require that all of our Tests be ordered by a Healthcare Provider. If you are interested in finding a physician in your area that offers our testing please reach out to Info@PrecisionPointDiagnostics.com

Who can order testing from your laboratory?

As a CLIA certified laboratory, we are required to work with healthcare providers that are licensed and authorized by their states to order and interpret diagnostic medical testing.

Can you ship a test kit directly to my patient?

Yes we can! We will ship to any patient within the USA at no additional charge. You can dropship a kit directly through our portal. If your patient resides outside the USA, shipping charges to the patient will apply. You will need to contact us for estimated shipping charges.

How long does it take to receive results?

Turnaround times will vary depending on what test has been ordered by the physician. You can generally expect them between 7-10 Business days but upon occasion it may be longer.

What are considered normal reference ranges?

Every lab is required to develop its own reference ranges. For this reason, you should not expect ranges to be the same from lab to lab. At Precision, we look at the values over the hundreds of thousands of specimens we have run and then look at distributions. In general, the top 5% is determined high, and then the next 25% is moderate, and then the next 25% is lower. However, when there is epidemiologic evidence that the population, in general, has more difficulty with a food, such as wheat or dairy, we will consider % reactivity in populations in general, and consider research and data, alongside our distributions to create a range. 

What credentials are required to test with your laboratory?

Each state has different regulations which govern the scope of practice for the practitioner. It is the responsibility of the practitioner to work within the rules and guidelines of the state. You may check with your state board of health for clarification about the specific restrictions that your state may have with regard to laboratory testing. Precision Point Diagnostics accepts authorization from Medical Doctors (MD), Osteopathic Doctors (DO), Chiropractors (DC), Naturopathic Doctors (ND), Doctors of Philosophy in Psychology, Biochemistry, Toxicology, and Nursing (PhD), Doctors of Oriental Medicine (DOM), Licensed Acupuncturist (Lac), Physicians Assistants (PA), Nurse Practitioners (ARNP), Nurse Midwives (CNM), Certified Nutritionists (CCN), and Registered Dietitians (RD). All ordering Health Professionals must have an NPI Number to participate in our testing services.

Do you accept testing from anywhere?

Precision Point does not accept business from New York State. We do accept all other states as well as international business. For more information on International ordering contact international@PrecisionPointDiagnostics.com
