Why Should You Take a Stool Test?

GI symptoms are your bodies way of warning you that something is wrong.

If you have ongoing intestinal symptoms  that’s your body’s way of telling you that your gut is out of balance.

Yes, the signs and symptoms you are experiencing are your body’s warning system. These red flags are asking you to pay attention to your body. The very first step you should take is an easy to do, ‘at home’ stool test.

Did you know that Gastrointestinal or GI problems are usually the most common reasons that people look for medical attention.

Stool testing gives you invaluable information about what’s going on in your gut. Maybe you are experiencing symptoms like diarrhea, gas, constipation or bloating. If so, it’s a good idea to find out what’s going on in your gut so you know where to start in repairing it.

Without this valuable information it’s a guessing game and you can waste hundreds of dollars trying different protocols to heal your gut, without getting to know what the cause is.

We recommend Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis to help you understand the underlying reasons for your symptoms.

What Does a Doctors Data At Home Stool Test Help You Determine?

  • Reasons for nausea, vomiting and bloating
  • Why you have loss of appetite
  • Abdominal, cramping and diarrhea causes
  • Absorption of nutrients
  • Parasites
  • Infections from bacteria, viruses, or funguses
  • Liver problems
  • Pancreatic function
  • Digestive conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis

How is Dr.’s Data Test Different From Other At Home Stool Tests?

Doctor’s Data labs have been examining stool samples  for over 40 years. Doctor’s Data became the first lab in the functional medicine industry to introduce MALDI-TOF (Matrix- Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time of Flight) as a method of identifying bacteria and yeast in stool culture. MALDI-TOF works by measuring the unique “fingerprints” of our microorganisms. This spectra is then compared to a reference database for verification and identification.

What Makes the MALDI-TOF a Superior Measure for Stool Testing?

Doctor’s Data utilizes MALDI-TOF in combination with “high-complexity” culture for rapid, accurate and reliable identification of hundreds of gastrointestinal bacterial and yeast species, and even subspecies. The MALDI-TOF reference database is the most expansive and is growing by about 100 species per month. To date they have identified over 180 yeast species; 65 of these are Candida alone. This ability to differentiate is extremely important since some patients may have up to 6 or 7 different strains.

All of Doctors Data CSA tests use the MALDI-TOF technology. Heres what Sandra Richter, Director of Bacteriology in the departments of Clinical Pathology and Molecular Pathology at The Cleveland Clinic, had to say about it. “It is clear that this is a giant step forward in the accuracy and speed of organism identification routinely reported by the lab.”

Why Stool Test?

If you’re like most people, you know that your poop holds information that could very well be the key to good health. Collecting it and shipping it off could be the easiest way to gather helpful information that will put you on the right path for a treatment plan.
