  • Dysbiotic or foreign bacteria
  • 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
  • Intestinal permeability, commonly referred to as leaky gut, which may be associated with food intolerance and immune responses
  • 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
