Microbiome Abundance and Diversity
The GI360™ Profile is a gut microbiota DNA analysis tool that identifies and characterizes the abundance and diversity of more than 45 targeted analytes that peer-reviewed research has shown to contribute to dysbiosis and other chronic disease states.
The Dysbiosis Index (DI) is a calculation with scores from 1 to 5 based on the overall bacterial abundance and profile within the patient's sample as compared to a reference population. Values above 2 indicate a microbiota profile that differs from the defined normobiotic reference population (i.e., dysbiosis). The higher the DI above 2, the more the sample is considered to deviate from normobiosis.
Among other things, this information can be used to consider and build an individualized treatment program.
The test is particularly suitable for use in the following intestinal diseases and chronic problems:
- Gastrointestinal symptoms
- Autoimmune diseases
- IBD / IBS
- Food hypersensitivity
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Joint pain
- Chronic or acute diarrhea
- Bloody stools
- Mucosal dysfunction
- Stomach ache
- Fever and vomiting
The study is performed for three consecutive days to obtain the most accurate result possible.
The extensive GI360 x3 gut analysis is currently the most accurate and comprehensive analysis of the total balance of the gastrointestinal system. The test is also used by numerous functional medicine physicians around the world.
More information about the test can be found on Doctor's Data's English pages.
