Functional Medicine Explained

Screening Technology in Gut Imbalances

Share

Our gastrointestinal tract hosts more than 1000 species of bacteria that work symbiotically with us to promote a balanced immune system, metabolize nutrients, harvest energy, fortify our mucosa, and influence the disease’s development. Microbiota is a term used to refer to and associate bacteria, eukaryotes, viruses, and at least one archaeon. It plays such an important role in human health that it is called “the forgotten organ.” Hence, the importance of screening gut imbalances.

The balance between our bacteria, what it metabolizes, and the end product is important to our health. It ultimately has an important impact on our skin health, immune system, autoimmune disorders, and peripheral inflammation. This day we can rely on the best technology to perform unique assessments and screen our gut health or gut imbalances. Gut Zoomer by Vibrant provides us with the opportunity to take a closer look into our gut and allows us to know how our daily functions get affected by our microbiota.

Gut Zoomer:
  • Detect over 300 microorganisms.
  • 99% specificity.
  • 98% sensitivity.
  • Uses whole-genome data.
  • One- time stool collection.

The Vibrant Gut Zoomer is the most comprehensive test available to date. This assessment measures the quantity of each species or genus that provides a relation between disease and inflammation. Besides providing a full array of gut microorganisms, the Vibrant Gut Zoomer determines enzymes and bile deficiencies that can promote inflammatory symptoms.

The Gut Zoomer can provide recommendations and lifestyle changes to improve the symptoms to a variety of conditions like:
  • Intestinal permeability (SCFA producing bacteria and tight junction integrity)
  • Intestinal disorders (IBS and IBD related bacteria)
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)- related bacteria
  • Cardiovascular health (inflammation influencing and TMAO-related bacteria)
  • Autoimmune health (celiac, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.)
  • Neurological health (MS, Parkinson’s, and more)
  • Liver diseases (cirrhosis, hepatitis, cholangitis, and more)
  • Metabolic health (Obesity, diabetes, etc.)
  • Nutrition (Vitamin production, oxalate metabolism)
  • Microbiome and hormone connections (Beta-glucuronidase and Beta-glucosidase)
  • 67 pathogenic bacteria
  • 24 Intestinal parasites
  • 8 viruses
  • 5 Fungal or yeast species
  • 5 worm species
  • 6 antibiotic resistance genes measured
Nevertheless, Gut Zoomer by Vibrant can deliver further information about our gut health because it measures markers of functional digestive status like:
  • Calprotectin
  • Pancreatic elastase 1
  • Bile acids
  • Cholic acid
  • Chenodeoxycholic acid
  • Deoxycholic acid
  • Lithocholic acid
  • Acetic acid
  • Butyric acid
  • Propionic acid
  • Valeric acid
  • Total SCFAs
  • ß-glucuronidase

Previously, it was thought that one microbe was the main factor to develop a specific disease, as well, as one enzyme deficiency would cause one condition. Now we know that we have to see the whole picture, a holistic perspective; diseases are not caused by one microbe, but dysbiosis promotes different conditions.

We recommend the assessment with Vibrant Gut Zoomer for patients struggling with:
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Liver and gallbladder disease
  • Neurological disorders
  • Mood abnormalities
  • Skin rashes (eczema or dermatitis)
  • Inflammatory symptoms
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Fatigue
  • Gas and bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Infections
  • Intestinal permeability (‘leaky gut syndrome’)
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • GERD
  • Food sensitivities
  • Malnutrition
