Clinically Optimized Stool Analysis
David Quig, PhD and Julia Malkowski, ND, DC
What to expect
The composition of microbes in our gut is a factor in the development of many illnesses and is affected by genetic predisposition, diet, state of bacterial colonization, and exposure to substances that may disrupt the microbial balance. Microbiological stool analysis provides an assessment of digestive and absorptive functions, detects pathogens or parasites, and identifies the presence of specific bacteria and yeast. The data provided gives healthcare practitioners the ability to identify factors contributing to acute or chronic GI symptoms and disease states and is essential for creating effective treatment strategies and improving patient outcomes.
In this webinar presented by Doctor’s Data, attendees will learn how the innovative GI360™ stool profile utilizes a complementary approach to provide a comprehensive overview of a patient’s microbiota.
Dr. Quig will provide a concise overview of the methodology utilized in each section of the GI360 profile report. The material covered will include:
Analysis of the abundance and diversity
of the microbiome
• The novel dysbiosis index
• Obtaining GI pathogen identity by PCR
• Obtaining parasite identity by microscopy
• Pathogenic bacteria and yeast species
• Direct susceptibility testing
• The specifics of stool chemistry
Dr. Malkowski will share a selection of case studies that demonstrate the application of GI360 in clinical practice. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with Dr. Quig and Dr. Malkowski in a Q&A session after the presentation.
An understanding of this laboratory analysis method can provide the shrewd clinician with a powerful tool to use in their search for the root cause(s) of a patient’s illness. Don’t miss this opportunity to join experts Dr. Quig and Dr. Malkowski to learn about GI360!
