Gut Microbiome Test Medium – a thorough analysis of your gut flora

Our Medium Gut Microbiome Test measures in addition to the markers found in Gut Microbiome Test Small, also the bacteria Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Akkermansia muciniphila, which have been found to be important for obesity, type-2 diabetes and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Studies have shown low levels of Akkermansia muciniphila occur in overweight or obese people, type-2 diabetes, inflammatory conditions and a weak immune system. By measuring your gut flora, you will find out how to build your health from within.

Another bacterium that often occurs in too low levels in people with intestinal diseases is Faecalibacterium prausnitzii. Testing Faecalibacterium prausnitzii can act as a biomarker to help in the diagnosis of various intestinal diseases. It is common for overweight people to have a low-grade inflammation in the body and this is often related to a low incidence of Akkermansia muciniphila. Therefore, it is good to measure both of these two bacteria in combination with the other most well-known and most common bacteria measured in our test.

Who would benefit from the Medium Gut Microbiome Test?

This is for you who want in-depth analysis of your gut flora, either because you want to optimise your health or you already have a problem that you think has a connection to the gut. Examples of such can be obesity, type-2 diabetes or various types of gut disorders. If you want to do a more comprehensive analysis that also measures  digestive function, leaky gut and more, have a look at Gut Microbiome Test Large or Gut Microbiome Test XL. Only in the last few years has research begun to see the links between leaky gut and a number of different diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, allergies, fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome and asthma. Therefore, it is very important to continuously review how your gut is doing with tests to prevent any future health problems.

Intestinal flora and obesity

Research has shown that there is a strong link between our bacterial flora and obesity, and specifically the bacterium Akkermansia muciniphila. It has been possible to successfully transfer feces from thin people to overweight people, which has led to weight loss. A gut flora test can thus provide the answers to the reason behind overweight and the solution on how to reverse this issue. It is important to bear in mind, however, that this does not mean that all people who are overweight have an imbalanced gut flora. Poor diet and lifestyle as well as thyroid disorders are other factors involved in obesity.

Akkermansia muciniphila

Akkermansia muciniphila has become known for four reasons so far: its importance in obesity; type-2 diabetes; its effect on the intestinal mucosa; as well as its role in inflammation in the body (Brahe, LK et al., 2015), (Zhang, X. et al., 2013), (Yassour, M. et al., 2016), (Li, J. et al. , 2017), (Liu, R. et al., 2017). Research shows that people with metabolic diseases such as obesity and type-2 diabetes have lower levels of Akkermansia muciniphila than thin people or people that don’t have diabetes. Strengthening the intestinal mucosa can lead to less inflammation and a better immune system, as the intestinal mucosa has the function of preventing bacteria and other harmful substances from penetrating the intestinal mucosa and entering the bloodstream.

Measuring your intestinal flora can thus be of significance, not only for gut diseases but also for problems such as obesity and type-2 diabetes.

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii

Faecalibacterium prausnitzii is the most important producer of butyric acid found in our gut. Butyric acid is known to protect against colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD; Christl et al., 1996; Archer et al., 1998). It can also reduce inflammation of the intestinal mucosa (Inan et al., 2000).

Inflammatory bowel disease is also referred to as IBD and is a collective noun for diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Faecalibacterium prausnitzii has been considered a bioindicator for our health, as when the amount of the bacteria decreases, inflammatory processes increase.

    I’d been struggling with bloating for a while when I came across this test… I figured I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised by how straightforward the process was, and the customer service was excellent. When the results came in, I was amazed by the depth of information provided. It not only explained my gut status in detail but also sugested specific dietary changes like more leafy greens and whole grains, less processed foods. It’s been a few weeks since I implemented these changes, and I already see a reduction in my bloating. I’ve also notiiced an increase in my energy levels, which is an added bonus. I’m grateful for the newfound understanding of my digestive health that this test has given me.

Upon a colleague’s recommendation, I tried the Gut Microbiome Test (Medium) from GetTested. From the outset, I was impressed with the kit’s clarity and user-friendliness. However, the real value came when I received the detailed report. It was an enlightening deep dive into the world of my gut’s bacteria, revealing areas of concern and offering explanations for my symptoms. Embracing the insights from the test, I’ve revamped my diet, favoring foods that nurture a healthy gut. The results have been transformative, with reduced bloating and more predictable digestion. For anyone seeking clarity on their gut health, this test is a worthy investment.

The waiting period for the results was a bit nerve-wracking, but it was worth it. The analysis was detailed and easy to understand, highlighting areas where my gut health could improve. I learned that I need to incorporate more fermented foods in my diet to promote beneficial gut bacteria. The test also suggested personalised dietary adjustments that could help balance my gut microbiome. It’s refreshing to finally have a clear path towards better gut health. Highly recommend this to anyone seeking to understand their body better.

    Cool test, simple to use. Got to understand my gut better. Looks like I need more whole grains. Time for a grocery run!

  9. Charlotte Dawson

    Navigating the maze of health and wellness advice online can often leave one feeling overwhelmed and unsure. As someone with a history of irritable bowel syndrome, I’ve jumped from one diet to another, trying to pinpoint the cause of my digestive woes. The idea of understanding my gut at a microscopic level always appealed to me, so when I chanced upon the Gut Microbiome Test (Medium) offered by GetTested, it felt like the right step forward.

    Upon ordering, the kit reached me faster than I had anticipated. This might seem like a minor detail, but for someone eager for answers, this promptness was much appreciated. The kit itself was thoughtfully designed, ensuring the sampling process was both hygienic and hassle-free. Comprehensive instructions accompanied it, leaving little room for error.

    But the true magic unfolded when I received the results. To say they were detailed would be an understatement. It was a rich tapestry of information, weaving together the complex narrative of my gut’s microbiome. I was introduced to bacteria I’d never heard of, learned of their functions, and more crucially, understood where my gut was thriving and where it was lacking.

    The data was empowering. It wasn’t just a passive report but a tool, arming me with the knowledge to make informed dietary choices. Under the guidance of a nutritionist, I’ve since embarked on a diet tailored to my gut’s unique needs. The difference? Fewer episodes of bloating, increased energy, and a general sense of wellbeing.

    Reflecting on the experience, I genuinely believe the Gut Microbiome Test (Medium) is more than just a test. It’s a deep dive into understanding one’s body, a tool for empowerment, and for someone like me, a beacon of hope in the often murky waters of digestive health.

  10. Leo

    The world of probiotics, prebiotics, and gut health has always intrigued me. To gain a deeper understanding of my own body, I opted for the Gut Microbiome Test (Medium) by GetTested. The entire process, from ordering to receiving results, was seamless. When I delved into the results, it was like unlocking a treasure trove of information. The intricacies of my gut’s microbiome, the balance, and imbalances, all laid out in a digestible format. Armed with this information, I’ve embarked on a journey of tailored nutrition and supplements. The subsequent weeks have witnessed a marked improvement in my digestion and overall energy. While there’s no one-size-fits-all solution in health, this test provides a custom blueprint that can guide dietary decisions.
