CDSA 2.0 — Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis with Parasitology

Your Holistic Doc

Two out of every three people have had a digestive problem in the past three months. If you're one of them, CDSA may be right for you. 

Take control of you gastrointestinal symptoms, including:

  • Gas 
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal Pain 
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • IBS — Irritable Bowel Syndrom
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic Skin Conditions
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Food Allergies

This comprehensive test looks at specific biomarkers to help us:

  • Identify the root cause(s) of your digestive discomfort
  • Aid in differentiating between Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), or other GI conditions
  • Support identification of targeted treatments

The CDSA 2.0 test can help provide insight to imbalances in your gut microflora, the presence of inflammation, or infection that can impact your overall health. It also includes a Comprehensive Parasitology Profile.

What is included with the Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis™ (CDSA 2.0)?

The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis 2.0™ (CDSA 2.0) provides unique insight into overall and gastrointestinal health by assessing a combination of novel stool biomarkers. The CDSA 2.0 provides an informative and flexible screening of gastrointestinal function providing information on:

  • Digestion/Absorption:
  • Pancreatic Elastase 1
  • Putrefactive Short–Chain Fatty Acids
  • Additional biomarkers available
  • Chymotrypsin
  • Fecal Fats
  • Inflammation/Immunology:
  • Eosinophil Protein X (EPX)
  • Calprotectin
  • Gut Metabolic Markers
  • Beneficial Short–Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA) with n–Butyrate
  • pH
  • Beta–Glucuronidase
  • Secondary Bile Acids
  • Lithocholic acid (LCA)
  • Deoxycholic acid (DCA)
  • LCA/DCA Ratio

Gut Microbiology Markers: beneficial intestinal microflora, imbalanced flora, and bacterial or fungal possible pathogens

  • Beneficial Bacteria
  • Additional Bacteria
  • Mycology (yeast and fungus)

The Comprehensive Parasitology Profile is a thorough analysis to detect the presence of intestinal parasites:

  • Parasitology Microscopic
  • Parasitology Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for the identification of:
    • Cryptosporidium
    • Giardia lamblia
    • Entamoeba histolytic

Susceptibility to Parasite Infection

It is generally assumed that travel to a Third World country or the occasional camping trip are prerequisites for acquiring a parasite infection. Owing to a combination of extensive worldwide travel, increasing immigration to the United States, day care centers and other sources of easy transmission, anyone is now susceptible. Diarrheal diseases, in fact, (bacterial as well as parasitic) constitute the greatest worldwide cause of morbidity and mortality.
