The Diagnostic Solutions GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis (GI-Microbial Assay Plus) quantitatively evaluates the gut microbiota including bacterial, parasitic and viral pathogens that can cause infection, disturb the healthy microbial balance and contribute to recurrent gastrointestinal disease.
By assessing the amount / number of the pathogens it allows practitioners to determine how relevant they are in your symptoms and health concerns.
Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory uses proven technology to provide accurate and reliable results.
When we receive your results we invite you to book a complimentary consultation with our Functional Medicine practitioner, Dominick Hussey, to discuss what they mean for you. This follow up visit can be in person, by phone or video.
