Akkermansia Test by GetTested: A Comprehensive Insight into Essential Gut Bacteria

The intricate ecosystem of our gut plays a significant role in determining overall health. Emerging research has drawn attention to two particular bacteria, Akkermansia muciniphila and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, and their association with metabolic and inflammatory conditions.

The Significance of Akkermansia muciniphila

Akkermansia muciniphila has gained research attention for several reasons:

  • Metabolic Health: Studies have shown that individuals with metabolic conditions, such as type-2 diabetes and obesity, often exhibit reduced levels of Akkermansia muciniphila compared to those without these conditions.
  • Intestinal Health: This bacterium plays a role in fortifying the intestinal mucosa, thereby aiding in the prevention of harmful substances infiltrating the bloodstream.
  • Inflammation: It has been linked with inflammation levels in the body, especially in the context of gut health.

Understanding Faecalibacterium prausnitzii

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, recognized as a prime producer of butyrate in our gut, offers multiple health benefits:

  • Anti-inflammatory Properties: It plays a part in reducing inflammation in the intestinal mucosa.
  • Protection Against Diseases: Elevated levels of this bacterium have been associated with reduced risks of conditions like colon cancer and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Given the rising prevalence of inflammatory bowel conditions, understanding the role of Faecalibacterium prausnitzii becomes even more vital.

Who Can Benefit from the Akkermansia Test?

If you’re curious about the composition of your gut flora, especially in relation to specific health concerns like type-2 diabetes, obesity, or inflammatory bowel conditions, this test might offer valuable insights. However, for those interested in a broader analysis encompassing digestive functions, leaky gut syndrome, and more, GetTested also provides comprehensive tests like Gut Microbiome XL.

The Testing Process

The Akkermansia Test is straightforward. After placing an order, GetTested dispatches a test-kit, complete with all necessary components for a fecal sample collection. Once collected, the sample is sent back to the lab for detailed analysis, and results are shared digitally.

In Conclusion

The intricate interplay between our health and gut bacteria is still a budding field of research. With the Akkermansia Test by GetTested, one can gain a deeper understanding of these essential bacteria, potentially paving the way for informed health decisions.

Looking for a more comprehensive test of your gut flora?

Before taking the test

  • Your test ID must be registered before it is sent for analysis (otherwise the lab will not analyze the test).
  • We recommend that you take the test on an empty stomach in the morning.
  • We recommend that you submit the test for analysis on a Monday or Tuesday.
  • If tracking code is available, please attach it to the front of the envelope (found on your test ID card).
  • Before you start, you need to register your test. Your test kit contains a sticker with your unique test ID. Register your test ID at my.gettested.io.
  • Wash your hands in hot water for about a minute. This will increase blood circulation in your fingers. Dry your hands. Doing a blood test without stimulating blood circulation might prove difficult, so please do not skip this step.
  • Disinfect your “test finger” with the supplied disinfectant paper. Wait a few seconds until the finger is completely dry.
  • Rotate the protective cover on the blood lancet to remove it. Use the extra lancet if you need to do another finger prick.
  • Place your hand on a flat surface. Put the lancet diagonally toward the test finger and press down the button. Make sure the lancet is pressed against the finger the whole time.
  • We recommend that you stand up at this stage to let the blood in your arm flow downward. Help the blood drops come out by massaging the finger toward the needle stick.
  • Transfer the blood drops into the test tube until the blood reaches the marked line. If it doesn’t reach the marked line, there won’t be enough blood for the lab to test. Please contact us if you have any trouble.
  • Place the sticker with your unique test ID on the test tube. Place the test tube inside the transport tube and seal.
  • Put the tubes in the enclosed envelope and send it to the lab the same day, preferably a Monday or Tuesday.

  1. Sara

    I have always been a skeptic of home health tests. But a friend’s recommendation and my growing concerns about digestive issues pushed me to try the Akkermansia test. The experience? Quite enlightening. The kit arrived promptly, packed securely and included detailed instructions. Taking the sample was easier than I thought. What impressed me more was the report. Detailed, yet not drowning in medical jargon. I realized my Akkermansia levels were lower than average, which made sense given my health concerns. It was the wake-up call I needed. I’ve since taken steps, changed certain eating habits, and I’m feeling better already. For the skeptics out there, sometimes a little clarity is all you need.

The accompanying recommendations were practical, guiding me on potential diet adjustments and lifestyle changes. The experience was enlightening, to say the least. It bridged the gap between generic health advice and personalized insights, allowing me to make informed decisions about my health. If you’re on the fence about understanding your gut health, I’d recommend the Akkermansia test wholeheartedly. It’s more than just a test; it’s a step towards enhanced well-being.
