This stool analysis evaluates:

  • Digestion/Absorption Markers
  • Gut Metabolic Markers
  • Gut Microbiology Markers

This diagnostic stool analysis provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the estimated 50% of patients seen by primary care practitioners who have gastrointestinal complaints. For greater insight into the clinical utility of the CDSA™, please read the Clinical Overview below.

  • Maldigestion
  • Malabsorption
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Altered GI immune function
  • Bacterial/fungal overgrowth
  • Chronic dysbiosis
