I am seeing an increasing number of people with IBS symptoms who are finding no beneficial assistance from repeated visits to their G.P. In order to find out what is causing IBS it is often necessary to carry out tests. Food intolerance is one and a stool analysis test is really useful to find out more precise details of what is going on in the gut.
A stool analysis test costs between £150 and £300 depending on which analytes are measured. Gut bacteria, cancer causing molecules, acidity levels, Candida, and digestive enzymes are just a few measurements that help to analyse what might be causing IBS symptoms. Once this kind of information is held more precise remedial action can be taken to rectify problems.
