What is GI-MAP testing?

The microbiome is complex and highly individualized.

The GI-MAP tests for:

  • Normal bacterial flora and opportunistic bacteria
  • Bacterial, viral, and parasitic pathogens
  • Fungi and yeast
  • Inflammation
  • Immune response
  • H. pylori with virulence factors
  • Antibiotic resistance genes
  • Parasitic worms

Research overwhelmingly indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of multiple factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions.

The GIMAP test is the most accurate, comprehensive DNA stool analysis on the market and can help to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi and more by targeting specific DNA of the organisms tested.

Almost every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some patients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other patients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.

Some conditions that warrant testing are:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation
  • Brain fog
  • Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis
  • Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
  • Diabetes
