My Most FAQs:
- Test Type: Stool (1-day single specimen collection).
- How: the test kit is shipped to you, you do the test in the privacy of your home and ship the kit back to the lab. Results are sent to me and I send to you.
- Cost: The test is $370 without the zonulin* marker, $425 with.
*Zonulin is an indicator for leaky gut. However, because it is not conclusive, I do not normally recommend this marker. There may be situations where it would be good to know so let’s talk about this option.
