Microbiome and Gut Testing
GI Effects® is a comprehensive assessment of complete gut health, assessing the root cause of most GI complaints. The combination of PCR, culture, and microscopic testing methods ensures that any and all relevant organisms are identified.
GI Effects testing might be right for you if you struggle with:
- Abdominal pain/cramps
- Food Allergies
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Genova’s GI Effects® provides a more complete evaluation of gut health.
The test results provide information on inflammation and how well you digest and absorb your food. This test can also uncover imbalances in yeast, parasites, and healthy and unhealthy bacteria that live in the large intestine. This bacterial population is called the microbiome.
Systemic diseases can be linked to the GI tract, and improving the health of your gut may improve your overall health. Identifying abnormalities through Genova’s testing allows you and our healthcare providers to develop a personalized treatment plan to improve your symptoms, all while being collected from the comfort of your home.
*Testing not available in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, or outside of the continental United States.
