Functional medical testing for the gut and liver can provide valuable insights into your overall well-being. These tests go beyond standard diagnostics and help identify underlying issues.

For the gut, it can reveal imbalances in the microbiome, assess digestive function, and detect inflammation. Liver function tests assess the organ’s ability to process substances.

These insights enable targeted interventions, promoting a proactive approach to health and personalized treatment plans.

GI-Microbial Assay Plus Panel

$648 (Stool Testing)

This is the most comprehensive analysis (87 biomarkers) of gut health and almost every patient can benefit from this assessment - although it is critical for patients who have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.

Some conditions that warrant testing are those with autoimmune diseases, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), digestive complaints (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, discomfort), brain fog, skin problems like acne and psoriasis, joint issues, mood and nervous system conditions, and diabetes and weight loss issues.

This panel will test your stool sample and quantifies bacteria, fungi/yeast, viruses, and parasites using qPCR (DNA-based test). This is a leap forward from older methodologies that report only positive or negative.

Calprotectin measures gastrointestinal inflammation caused by infections, allergens, toxins, certain drugs, IBD, polyps, diverticulitis, or colorectal cancer. ($134 add-on)

Zonulin is a protein that opens intercellular tight junctions in the gut lining and increases intestinal permeability in the jejunum and ileum - it is a biomarker for barrier permeability. ($93 add-on)

Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity

$239 (Phlebotomy done in-clinic)

The Celiac & Gluten Sensitivity Profile helps differentiate between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity by evaluating the serum titers of IgA and IgG for deamidated gliadin peptide, gliadin, and gluten.

SIBO/IMO Lactulose Breath Test

$415 (Breath Test)

This test is used to help diagnose Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth (IMO). When bacteria normally found in the large intestine become present in the small intestine, the digestive system may produce excessive hydrogen and/or methane gas, which can cause many gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. This test comes with a LACTULOSE substrate.

SIBO 3 Hour

$469 (Breath Test)

The 3-hour SIBO assessment is a non-invasive test that evaluates bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine. This longer test is recommended for patients with slower gastrointestinal transit or constipation

Autoimmune Liver Disease Test

$138 (Phlebotomy done in-clinic)

This panel detects autoimmune liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, and primary biliary cirrhosis.
