NutriPATH offer an extensive range of gastrointestinal test profiles to assist and provide a practitioner with the flexibility in deciding the most appropriate test analyses for the patient.
The CDSA test can assist physicians to develop earlier, more effective preventive interventions, improve the timing and precision of treatments and reduce the risk of clinical relapse in certain groups of patients. It will also allow physicians to better evaluate and document the medical necessity for more invasive procedures such as colonoscopy.
The CDSA Level 1 is a comprehensive assessment of the microbiological environment of the gut. It includes Macroscopy, Microscopy description, Bacteriology, Mycology (yeasts) and Parasitology. This test reports on pathogenic and imbalanced colonising organisms, as well as identifying the levels of beneficial flora.
The level 1 assessment is a cost effective option and can be requested when you suspect a gut infection or want to confirm/exclude dysbiosis. It is recommended to add a DNA Multiplex PCR (2002) test to any CDSA level if you suspect parasites.
