IBS Test – comprehensive digestive / gut health test

The IBS test is an in-depth test that gives you a thorough analysis of your digestive system and intestinal flora. We measure digestive function, digestive residues, bacteria and yeast in the intestinal flora, digestive malabsorption and inflammatory markers. Common imbalances in IBS are, for example, overgrowth of candida, pathogenic bacteria, lack of a healthy bacterial flora, leaky gut or digestive weakness.

Imbalance in the intestinal flora is very common in IBS and impairs the protective function of the intestinal mucosa and our immune system. It is often said that 60-80% of people with IBS also suffer from SIBO, which stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, i.e. overgrowth of bacteria. However, SIBO is considered a secondary disease that is primarily due to other weaknesses in the digestive system. Therefore, it is recommended to do a thorough analysis of your gut that can look at the underlying factors, which this test does. However, a SIBO test is still a complementary add-on to get an even more comprehensive overview of your gut health.

Who should take the IBS Test?

The IBS test is suitable for you who have IBS or similar stomach problems and so far have not received the right help. It suits you who either have had problems for a long time or have recently started to experience them. The sooner you find the root cause of your problems, the faster you can take action to treat the imbalances you have. If you suffer from IBS, we can recommend that you also test yourself for food intolerances and SIBO. The first step is to remove things that can disturb your gut and intestines, whether it is food you cannot tolerate, overgrowth of bacteria/fungus/yeast, or toxins.

The IBS Test analyses:

  • 13 intestinal flora bacteria
  • 4 yeast
  • The pH value
  • Digestive residues (fat, nitrogen, sugar and water)
  • Secretory IgA
  • Pancreatic elastase
  • Bile acids
  • Alpha-1 antitrypsin
  • Calprotectin

The test analyses the following 13 intestinal flora bacteria:

  • Bifidobacterium
  • Lactobacillus
  • Clostridium
  • Klebsiella
  • Escherichia coli
  • Escherichia coli Biovare
  • Proteus
  • Pseudomonas
  • Enterobacter
  • Serratia
  • Hafnia
  • Enterococcus
  • Bacteroides

These intestinal bacteria are what we, based on current research, know are the most common bacteria in the gut, or what should be the most common bacteria for a healthy intestinal flora. In the right amount, all the bacteria can have a beneficial function, while they can be directly harmful in too low or too high amounts.

The IBS test analyses the following 4 yeast:

  • Candida
  • Candida albicans
  • Yeast (positive or negative)
  • Geotrichum candidum

Candida albicans has become very well known in recent years. Candida is found naturally in our gut and is good for us in moderation, but if there is an overgrowth, problems can occur, which can happen after taking antibiotics, in case of incorrect diet, heavy metal poisoning, and/or after taking certain drugs. Since Candida is a completely separate genus, it can also be the case that you have overgrown another fungus. Therefore, we analyse not only Candida albicans but also candida as a species and also if there is a general overgrowth of yeast, as well as Geotrichum candidum.

How does the IBS Test work?

The test is a stool test that is performed at home and then sent to our lab for analysis. After you have placed your order, you will receive a test kit with everything you need to be able to perform the test. You will then receive the answer digitally.

    Been having digestion problems for years. This IBS test was really easy to use, results came back promptly, and I finally found out that I have IBS. It’s a relief to finally know what’s been causing my symptoms.

  2. Megan Howard

    I used this test due to recurrent bloating and discomfort. It was surprisingly straightforward, and the results came back quickly, confirming my suspicion of IBS. The test gave me a clearer understanding of what was going on, and I can now take steps towards better gut health.

  3. rachel

    I’ve been struggling with digestive issues for quite some time, causing a lot of worry and discomfort. The process was easy, the instructions clear, and the results were timely. The test confirmed my suspicion of ibs, which was a relief in a way because it means I can now work to manage it. Would highly recommend for anyone facing similar issues. 🙂

  4. Rebecca

    For years, my relationship with food was complicated. Regular stomach cramps, bloating, and unpredictable bowel movements made every meal a gamble. While IBS had been floated as a potential diagnosis, I’d never pursued it in-depth until I encountered the IBS Test. The convenience and comprehensiveness of this test appealed to me. The package arrived promptly, equipped with explicit instructions that ensured the sample collection was hassle-free.

    The results were a revelation. They not only confirmed IBS but also provided insights into potential triggers and sensitivities. With this newfound clarity, I engaged with a dietician who helped tailor a dietary plan specifically addressing my issues. I’ve since seen a dramatic improvement in my symptoms and overall well-being. This test was instrumental in guiding me towards a more harmonious relationship with food.

  5. Laura Armstrong

  6. Ahmad

    Navigating daily life with a fickle stomach was my norm. From abrupt urges to visit the restroom to debilitating cramps, I was at my wit’s end. The IBS Test seemed like a glimmer of hope. From ordering to sample collection, the process was seamless and straightforward.

    The ensuing results were detailed, offering clarity about my condition and shedding light on potential aggravators. Equipped with this knowledge, I embarked on a more informed dietary journey, making conscious choices that dramatically reduced my symptoms. The empowerment and relief this test brought can’t be overstated. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone in a similar predicament.

    Finally found answers to my stomach troubles with this test. A true game-changer!

  8. Evelyn

    The journey with my digestive system has been nothing short of a roller coaster. From the highs of enjoying a hearty meal to the steep drops of sudden stomach cramps, my day-to-day was unpredictable, to say the least. Multiple visits to doctors had yielded nothing concrete, apart from the usual “maybe it’s stress” or “try avoiding spicy foods.” With a mix of hope and skepticism, I decided to explore the IBS Test. From the get-go, the experience was more than I had hoped for. The kit, which landed on my doorstep faster than anticipated, was impressively put together. Clear, step-by-step instructions removed any apprehension I felt about taking a medical test at home. I appreciated the care and thought that went into making the process as smooth as possible for users.

    The real magic, however, was in the results. Detailed yet easy to understand, they painted a vivid picture of my digestive health. The confirmation of IBS was bittersweet – while no one wishes for a diagnosis, there was solace in finally having an answer. But the test went beyond just a label. It delved deep into triggers, patterns, and even provided guidance on potential next steps. Empowered with this newfound knowledge, I sought professional dietary advice. A few tweaks here, a couple of substitutions there, and within weeks I started to notice a difference. The frequency of my flare-ups reduced, the severity of cramps lessened, and I began to feel more in control of my body. In retrospect, the IBS Test was a turning point. It transformed a nebulous cloud of symptoms into tangible data that I could act upon. For anyone wading through the murkiness of digestive discomfort without clear answers, I wholeheartedly recommend taking this plunge. It’s truly illuminating.

  9. Tim

    A godsend. Not only did they pinpoint IBS, but they also dove deep into potential triggers, offering a blueprint to tackle my digestive woes. Taking these findings to my nutritionist, I was able to craft a diet that substantially diminished my symptoms. The peace of mind and physical relief I’ve gained since taking this test is immeasurable. 🙂 Thank u!!!!!
