This test also includes an add-on for the leaky gut marker zonulin.


Who Can Benefit from a GI-MAP +Zonulin Comprehensive Stool Analysis Test?

Because of its comprehensive analysis of gut health, almost every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. The GI-MAP is perfect for patients wishing to optimize their health, and it’s a critical test for patients who have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years. Some conditions that warrant testing are:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Digestive complaints (bloating, diarrhea, or constipation)
  • Brain fog
  • Skin problems like acne and psoriasis
  • Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
  • Diabetes and weight loss issues


GI-MAP +Zonulin Allows for Personalized Gut-Healing Treatment Plans

The GI-MAP +Zonulin allows practitioners to create personalized treatment protocols to address gut dysfunction based on which infections are urgent, which areas of the gut are already optimized, and which areas should be addressed after an infection is resolved.

Additionally, the quantification offers a remarkable ability to see how treatment modalities are working because a retest after treatment can show whether a parasite has resolved, dysbiosis has improved, and more.


Ordering the GI-MAP®+Zonulin- GI Microbial Assay Plus

The GI-MAP® from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory is a comprehensive stool analysis that measures gastrointestinal microbiota DNA from a single stool sample. Using state-of-the-art, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology, the GI-MAP evaluates gut pathogens, bacterial infections, yeast overgrowth, viruses, and parasites. Antibiotic resistance genes and virulence factors are also included on the test for unparalleled insight into H. pylori.

Recently, the GI-MAP has been enhanced to include an upgraded report with visual cues that allow for easier readability. Further, additional markers, including Roseburia spp., Desulfovibrio spp., and Eosinophil Activation Protein (EPX/EDN), have been added to include even greater insight into patient health.

The GI-MAP was designed to detect microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness. To complete the picture of overall health, the GI-MAP includes key markers related to digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.

An unhealthy gut can cause uncomfortable symptoms that are felt beyond the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In fact, the root cause of brain fog, fatigue, headaches, food sensitivities, and more can often be traced back to the gut.

The GI-MAP offers impactful, quantitative results that enable practitioners to create personalized protocols that address the underlying cause(s) of uncomfortable symptoms for even the most complex patients.


Why Is Quantification Using qPCR Technology So Important?

qPCR offers a much more accurate way to detect and quantify clinically-relevant organisms than standard PCR, culture, microscopy, or DNA sequencing-based methods. Accurately assessing how much

of an organism’s DNA is present in a patient’s stool sample is essential for helping practitioners to determine the clinical significance of pathogenic organisms and dysbiosis patterns.
