What is a GI Map?



A GI map typically refers to a gastrointestinal (GI) map, which is a diagnostic tool used in functional medicine and gastroenterology. It is a comprehensive stool test that analyzes various markers in the stool to assess the health of the gastrointestinal system. These tests can provide insights into digestive function, gut microbiome composition, inflammation, absorption of nutrients, and presence of pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.

GI maps can be useful in identifying the root causes of various gastrointestinal symptoms and conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and food intolerances. They can also help in guiding personalized treatment plans and monitoring the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving gut health.

Overall, a GI map provides valuable information for healthcare providers to better understand and address digestive issues and promote optimal gastrointestinal function.
