GI-MAP with Zonulin and Calprotectin (Price $575)

GI MAP (The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus)

This test was designed to assess a patient’s microbiome from a single stool sample. It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses and parasites.

The GI-MAP test measures pathogenic bacteria such as C. difficile, foodborne illness such as E.coli or calmonella, and common causes of diarrhea such as Campylobacter or Shigella. This test measures parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and Entamoeba histolytica. This test measures viruses such as Cytomegalovirus and Epstein-Barr Virus.

This test measures fungal organisms such as Candida, Microsporidia and more.

Finally, the GI-MAP measures standard markers of immunity, inflammation and digestion including calprotectin, secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA), anti-gliadin antibody, and pancreatic elastase 1.

Who Should Have the GI-MAP Comprehensive Stool Analysis Done?

Patients with the following conditions can benefits from GI-MAP assessment.

  • Celiacs
  • Yeast Infection (Candidiasis)
  • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • IBD (Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis)
What is Zonulin?
Zonulin is a protein secreted by intestinal cells that regulates tight junctions between the cells in the intestinal wall. Zonulin increases intestinal permeability, also known as “leaky gut”, which happens when the tight junctions between the cells become loose, and bacteria and protein molecules “leak” across the intestinal wall directly into the bloodstream. This process triggers an immune response, gut inflammation and tissue damage. Zonulin levels increase at the time of intestinal infection, dysbiosis (altered gut flora) and when people with celiac disease eat gluten. Elevated zonulin levels are detected in people with IBS, Celiacs, IBD (Crohn’s/Ulcerative Colitis), Diabetes and Autoimmune diseases.
What is Calprotectin?

Calprotectin is a stool test that is used to detect gastrointestinal inflammation. This test is the gold standard marker for the diagnosis and monitoring of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Calprotectin is a protein released by a type of white blood cell called a neutrophil. When there is inflammation in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, neutrophils move to the area and release calprotectin, resulting in an increased level in the stool.

This test is also used to differentiate between IBD and IBS. People with IBD and IBS can have similar symptoms likediarrhea, bloating, abdominal spasms/pain. The main difference between IBD and IBS is that IBD patients have ongoing intestinal inflammation where in IBS they don’t. The analysis of calprotectin in the stool is a great tool for establishing a right diagnosis in addition to clinical assessment, colonoscopy and  imaging tests.
