Comprehensive Stool Analysis

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

microbiome, dysbiosis, stool chemistry

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis can help assess digestive tract disorders like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, IBS, and malabsorption. The testing helps your Naturopath objectively assess the status of your individualized bacterial ecosystem, identify any opportunistic infections present, and determine the efficacy of your digestive organs.

This test is useful for:

  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms

  • Autoimmune Disease

  • Joint Pain


  • Inflammation

  • Food Sensitivities

  • Nutritional Deficiencies

  • Skin Conditions (Atopic Dermatitis)

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis (by Doctor's Data) helps us understand the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria in the gut, including any pathogenic bacteria and yeast/fungus. Furthermore, precise identification of infectious, or pathogenic species, as well as their susceptibility to natural and pharmaceutical therapies allows your practitioner to determine specific and targeted therapies to ensure you receive the greatest benefit from treatment.

Furthermore, important information regarding the ability of your gut to digest and absorb nutrients is determined by fecal biomarkers for these functions.

The stool testing markers include:

beneficial, imbalanced, and pathogenic flora

lysozyme, lactoferrin, white blood cells, secretory IgA and mucus

elastase, fat, muscle and vegetable fibers, and carbohydrates

% of short chain fatty acids​

susceptibilities of pathogenic bacteria

helps determine the status of the bacterial ecosystem in your digestive tract, including identification of any underlying pathogenic infections, like yeast

helps assess level of inflammation in the gut, aiding in differentiate between inflammatory bowel disease and IBS

helps determine efficacy of digestion and absorption of vital nutrients, including pancreatic enzyme sufficiency

a representation of adequate fibre intake
helps determine the ratios of beneficial bacterial populations, protecting against bacterial dysbiosis & healing from inflammation

using both PCR and culture, pathogenic bacteria are assessed for susceptibility to interventions, ensuring bacterial resistance is minimized and treatments are effective

* If suspected, parasitology testing can also be added to this test panel.

suspect this might be you?

let's explore the possibility that your microbiome might be the source of your symptoms
