(Test Code 2006)
WellLab offer an extensive range of gastrointestinal test profiles to assist and provide a practitioner with the flexibility in deciding the most appropriate test analyses for the patient.
The CDSA test can assist physicians to develop earlier, more effective preventive interventions, improve the timing and precision of treatments and reduce the risk of clinical relapse in certain groups of patients. It will also allow physicians to better evaluate and document the medical necessity for more invasive procedures such as colonoscopy.
The CDSA Level 3+ is the second most comprehensive stool assessment which is the extended test of the CDSA level 3 panel with the additional advanced biomarkers that evaluate digestion, absorption, pancreatic function, and inflammation such as Transglutaminase IgA, Eosinophil Protein X, Calprotectin, M2 Pyruvate Kinase (M2-PK) and H.Pylori. The CDSA level 3+ offers a comprehensive look at the overall health of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It helps identify inflammatory conditions such as IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), food allergies and post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This profile also includes sensitivity testing meaning that when colonising bacteria or mycoses/yeasts are detected, they are tested against a panel of natural anti-microbial and prescription anti-fungal agents to assist the practitioner in selecting what treatment will be most effective for the patient. It is recommended to add a DNA Multiplex PCR (2002) test to any CDSA level if you suspect parasites.
