Doctors Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis (CSA) w/Parasitology x3

*Labs are not processed from New York state.

Doctors Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis (CSA) with Parasitology Test x3 stool samples (CDSA or CSAP) evaluates digestion and absorption, bacterial balance, metabolism, yeast levels and the presence of parasites. This test is used to evaluate the cause of various gastrointestinal symptoms, or systemic illnesses, whose origins can be traced back to bacterial imbalance, parasites, or intestinal dysfunction.

Gastrointestinal (GI) complaints are among the most common reasons that patients seek medical care. Symptoms associated with GI disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption. The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 may be used to assess digestive and absorptive functions, good and bad bacteria levels, the presence of opportunistic pathogens, and to monitor the efficacy of therapeutic remediation of GI disorders.

The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 by Doctors Data is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic assessment that objectively evaluates the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria, pathogenic bacteria, yeast/fungus, and parasites. Precise identification of pathogenic species and susceptibility testing greatly facilitates selection of the most appropriate pharmaceutical or natural treatment agent(s).

This easy to use CSA w/Parasitology x3 test kit by Doctors Data is sent to your home. The kit contains everything needed for collecting specimens, including shipping materials and pre-paid postage for sending specimens to the lab.
Results are emailed 7-10 days after lab receives specimens.
No lab visit is needed.

*Labs are not processed from New York state.

Doctor's Data includes state-of-the-art Maldi-TOF Detection in this test

Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients. The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, white blood cells and mucus.

These markers can be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires life long treatment, and less severe inflammation that can be associated with the presence of enteroinvasive pathogens.
Lactoferrin is only markedly elevated prior to and during the active phases of IBD, but not with IBS.
Monitoring fecal lactoferrin levels in patients with IBD can therefore facilitate timely treatment of IBD, and the test can be ordered separately. Since the vast majority of secretory IgA (sIgA) is normally present in the GI tract where it prevents binding of pathogens and antigens to the mucosal membrane, it is essential to know the status of sIgA in the gut. sIgA is the only bona fide marker of humoral immune status in the GI tract.

Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste. To obtain benefits from food that is consumed, nutrients must be appropriately digested and then efficiently absorbed into portal circulation. Microbes, larger sized particles of fiber, and undigested foodstuffs should remain within the intestinal lumen.

Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status, and nutritional deficiencies.
Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function (as in “leaky gut syndrome”) can result from a number of causes including: low gastric acid production, chronic maldigestion, food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces, bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis); pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants, and the use of NSAID’s and antibiotics.

Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload from substances that are usually kept in the confines of the bowel for elimination. Efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions incorporates a comprehensive guided approach that should include consideration of elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants, supplementation of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics, and repair of the mucosal barrier.
