EnteroScan® is a group of specialized laboratory tests that analyze the intestinal microbiome and its functions and, along with other innovative and conventional laboratory tests, shed light on the causal relationships and underlying causes of gastrointestinal diseases, nervous system diseases, allergies, and autoimmune diseases, obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and many other chronic diseases and conditions.
EnteroScan® Parasitology is a fast and essential test of the gastrointestinal tract for the presence of parasites. Intestinal parasites are often the cause of many chronic health problems, including diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and other organs and systems of the body.
The new EnteroScan® Parasitology v2.0 includes the testing of 6 Protozoa and 8 Helminths that infect the human gastrointestinal system, using the RT-PCR molecular methodology.
To whom EnteroScan® Parasitology is addressed
EnteroScan® Comprehensive explores and provides answers to:
Most people believe that parasitic infections are rare and limited to those who travel to tropical areas. However, there is an increase in the incidence of parasitic infections in much of the general population due to the following reasons:
- Contamination of water supply networks
- Increased travel to countries where parasitic infections are endemic
- Consumption of exotic and raw foods
- Use of antibiotics
Symptoms of parasitic infections vary from person to person. Among the most common symptoms are constipation, diarrhea, bloating and gas, symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, arthralgias and myalgias, anemia, allergic reactions, skin lesions, irritability and anxiety, difficulty sleeping, reduced energy and easy fatigue, poor nutrition and reduced immune function.
But while parasitic infections can be the causative factor in many chronic diseases, they often go undiagnosed because the signs and symptoms of a parasitic infection often resemble those of other diseases. Examining feces with EnteroScan® Parasitology is an excellent approach to detecting the possible causative factors for chronic disorders whether they originate from the gastrointestinal tract or not.
Testing with EnteroScan® is aimed at people who:
- They face chronic health problems
- They seek optimal health in natural ways
- They want to prevent the emergence of modern lifestyle diseases
It is an easy, painless, non-invasive way of assessing the intestinal microbiome and its functions as well as the total intestinal function.
With EnteroScan® you can discover the real causes of the problems that concern you and give an etiologic solution.
With EnteroScan® you can monitor and measure objectively the changes that take place in the microbiome and the function of your intestine, after therapeutic interventions.
