Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (Code CDSA)

The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is the original non-invasive evaluation of gastrointestinal function. This assay helps pinpoint imbalances, provide clues about current symptoms and warns of potential problems should the imbalances progress.

Digestive complaints are among the most common reasons that individuals seek medical care. Recent evidence now confirms that gastro-intestinal abnormalities are associated with many conditions outside the gastro-intestinal tract.

GI Indications:
Indigestion
Constipation
Diarrhoea
Gas and Bloating
Infection/Dysbiosis
Abdominal Pain
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Extra-intestinal Indications:
Arthritis
Autoimmune disease
Chronic Fatigue
Fibromyalgia
Recent antibiotic use

This test reveals important clinical information about:

What the test looks at:

Digestion Markers
(Chymotrypsin, Putrefactive SCFAs, Meat Fibers, Vegetable Fibers) - An indirect evaluation of digestive function, these markers provide insight into inadequate digestive enzyme production and maldigestion.

Absorption Markers
(Long Chain Fatty Acids, Phospholipids, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Total Fecal Fat) - Abnormal levels of these Fatty Acids may indicate maldigestion, malabsorption, altered transit time, small bowel bacteria overgrowth and long-term risk for colon cancer.

Metabolic Markers
(Short Chain Fatty Acids, n-Butyrate, Beta-Glucuronidase, pH, Fecal Lactoferrin, Macroscopic exam, Occult blood) - These markers identify imbalances that are associated with increased toxic burden, small bowel bacteria overgrowth and severe inflammation.
- Abnormal levels of these markers are associated primarily with intestinal conditions, including potential risk for colorectal cancer.

Microbiology Markers
(Bacteriology, Mycology)
- Quantitative measures of the beneficial flora Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium
- Quantitative measures of additional flora, including strict pathogenic bacteria and potentially pathogenic and bacteria and yeast.
- An imbalance in GI flora is associated with Intestinal and Extra-intestinal conditions.

The Comprehensive stool Analysis can also include Parasitology. (Code CDSAP)
The Parasitoligy evaluation is also available as a stand alone test. (Code CP)

(EIA and microscopic evaluation)
- With the highest documented recovery rates (22% positivity rate), this Parasitology examination quantifies all ova and parasites identified.
- Includes microscopic evaluation for yeast and blood cells.

Food Intolerance Testing

The only intolerance test endorsed by Allergy UK.

How can you go round to a friend's house if you think an attack of IBS might strike? You might have to cancel a night out because your migraine means you need to be in bed. Not being able to wear that new top because you've had an eczema flare up. All of these are everyday considerations for a large number of people.

As food intolerance becomes more widely accepted and understood, lots of people are beginning to associate poor health with what they are eating. However, just because some foods affect one person, this doesn't mean that it will be the same for everyone, and trying to find out which other foods trigger your symptoms can be like finding a needle in a haystack!

Food intolerance, or sensitivity, has been linked to many chronic and persistent problems such as: headaches, intestinal symptoms, skin problems, behavioural changes and asthma - amongst others.

The LORISIAN tests measure specific IgG antibodies to identify foods to which you may be sensitive. The presence of IgG antibodies indicates a possible sensitivity to a particular food.

How does it work?

STEP 1 - A finger prick sample of blood is taken by your practitioner.

STEP 2 - The sample is posted to the lab on the same day.

STEP 3 - When your sample is received at the laboratory, it is extracted from the blood collection wand using dilutent and one of the qualified lab technicians will test the sample using one of the foodSCAN Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) tests.

STEP 4 - The results are returned to your practitioner in an easy to undrstand format which is a bit like a traffic light system - the foods in the green section are all okay to eat freely, the foods listed in the yellow section should only be eaten every 4-5 days, and the foods in the red section are those you should avoid.

STEP 5 - After discusing the results with your practitioner a guidebook that details the foods families, and vitamin and mineral information plus a copy of the results are forwarded to your home address.

Note: If you have been avoiding foodsbecause you think they are the problem they may not be picked up, as there will be no IgG antibodies for that particular food in your blood sample. It is therefore advisable to eat a variety of foods for 4 days prior to the blood test including those that you suspect a problem with.
