IBS Clinics offers both basic and comprehensive stool tests. While both tests provide vital information for IBS sufferers, the comparison below highlights the differences.

Both tests:

  • Show the presence of yeast, bacteria or parasitic infection

  • Give an approximation of the volume and diversity of normal gut flora

  • Provide bacterial and fungal sensitivity panels

The most significant differences between the basic and comprehensive tests are that the comprehensive test provides

  • Inflammation markers which can indicate inflammatory bowel disease

  • metabolic markers which show if there is bacterial interference with detoxification. Metabolic markers help in assessing the risk of hormone related cancers, of the bowel, prostate and breast.
