GI MAP TEST UK

GI-MAP TEST UK

includes Zonulin

The GI-MAP test with Zonulin (Microbial Assay Plus) utilizes advanced techniques including qPCR quantitative polymerase chain reaction for accurate detection of parasites, yeast, bacteria, helicobacter and viruses and inflammation. The test will also analyse the DNA of all organisms.

Zonulin

The test comes as standard with Zonulin,  a marker for leaky gut.   Zonulin
increases intestinal permeability in the jejunum and ileum and is considered a
biomarker for barrier permeability.

 

The test is carried out by Diagnostic Solutions.

  • IBS
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation

Enteroinvasive E. coli / Shigella

Enterotoxigenic E. coli LT/ST

Shiga-like Toxin E. coli stx1

Salmonella

Vibrio cholera

Yersinia enterocolitic

What GUT health markers does the GI-MAP test for?

Symptoms may include:

  • Pancreatic Elastase 1
    Elastase 1 is a digestive enzyme secreted
    exclusively by the pancreas, giving a
    direct indication of pancreatic function.
  • Occult Blood Fecal
    Immunochemical Testing (FIT)
  • Steatocrit
    Fecal fats are normally emulsified by bile
    salts and absorbed in the small intestines.
    High levels of fat in the stool may be an
    indication of maldigestion, malabs
  • Beta-Glucuronidase
    High levels of fecal beta-glucuronidase can
    indicate unfavorable metabolic changes in
    the colon.

What ELSE does the test measure?

INFLAMMATION
Calprotectin

is the gold standard marker for the
diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory
bowel disease. It is used to differentiate IBD
from irritable bowel syndrome

Beneficial bacteria  including Bacteroides fragilis, Bifidobacterium spp Lactobacillus spp. Akkermansia municiphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzi and Enterococcus spp and Roseburia spp.

Bad bacteria  such as Klesbiella and Enterobacter Clocae, Streptococcus

Yeast/ Fungal Organisms  such as Candida Albicans, Geotrichum, Microsporidium and Rhodotorula. If these organisms overgrow they may cause illness in certain individuals.

 

 

How does the test work?
Patients need to send in only one  sample to the laboratory.

    • The presence of any Parasites, including Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium
    • Yeast/fungal overgrowth, commonly referred to as Candida albican
    • Digestion of food, which indicates absorption status of nutrients
    • IBD markers identifying underlying inflammation associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease including Calprotectin
    • Secretory IgA. Deficiency of SIgA is the most common immuno-deficiency marker
    • Occult blood
