GI-MAP Stool Test | Diagnostic Solutions | Canada



The GI-Map Canada Stool Test is a sort of all-in-one stool test for your gut health, it tests for: a range of parasites, disease causing pathogens like h.pylori, Fugal infections like Candida overgrowth, food sensitivities like gluten and overall the health of your gut microbiome. I recommend the GI Map stool test, as a foundational gut health test for clients who want to get a broad picture of the current health of their gut, but also have specific concerns such as parasitic infection, candida overgrowth or are worried about pathogenic infections like h. pylori being a possibility or just wanting to really cover all their bases.

GI-MAP Canada Stool Test by Diagnostic Solutions


The GI-Map stool test by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory uses advanced DNA probing technology to help give you the most accurate results. Traditional stool testing methods allow viruses and bacteria to die before being tested resulting in poor accuracy.

Knowing the health of your gut microbiome (good bacteria) is critical since imbalances can cause many long-term gut issues. The GI Map is perfect for understanding normal gut flora.

One of the most useful features of the GI-Map stool tests is the ability to test pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria in your gut and test their genes to determine if they are resistant to certain antibiotics. Knowing this can help you and your doctor choose the right antibiotic if necessary.
