Gut evaluation is an important component of overall health assessment. Gut disturbances affect almost anyone at some point in life. For some people, gut disorders become chronic and impact long-term health.
Typical testing includes tests for food allergies, evaluation for microbiome balance, sufficiency, inflammation and infection. Intestinal permeability test with zonulin antibodies is also an important component of gut evaluation and is done through stool or blood test.
