– People with intestinal disorders.
– People who want to know the status of their microbiota.
– People with allergies, dermatologic disorders, depression, etc.
More than 100 billion bacteria live in the intestines that have key functions in maintaining good digestive health. Knowing which ones are affected by lifestyle (diet, stress, and others) or by a health problem can help to make a diagnosis and take the appropriate measures to improve their well-being.

TestUrGut bases on a panel of 15 microbial markers which have been defined by a group of gastroenterologists and scientists with more than 20 years of experience in the field of intestinal microbiota.
TestUrGut has been validated in a clinical study and analyzed under a quality system certified by ISO13485:2016, required for medical devices.
Take a fecal sample following the instructions of the kit. There is a free pick up of the sample at home in 24 h.
Within 10 working days from the reception of the sample in the laboratory, you will receive a report with the status of your intestinal microbiota.
Schedule an online or face-to-face visit with a professional expert to receive assessment and, if needed, immediate treatment.
TestUrGut is a non-invasive test
For any adult, except pregnant, with intestinal affectations or not, who are interested in knowing the state of their microbiota and receive professional advice.
The test cannot be performed in case of pregnancy. In case of having had an oral or parenteral antibiotic, a colonoscopy, colon cleansing, or enema, it is necessary to wait at least 30 days. It is not advised to take the test during menstruation.
TestUrGut is based on a panel of 15 microbial markers defined by a group of gastroenterologists and scientists with more than 20 years of experience in the field of intestinal microbiota. It has been validated in a cohort of healthy controls and patients with different intestinal disorders.

Patients with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) present a microbial profile in TestUrGut with a high total bacterial load. Therapeutic measures directed to reduce this total bacterial load will help to treat the SIBO in these patients and in reducing the associated symptomatology.
Thanks to the study of your intestinal microbiota the specialist of your choice will be able to make a diagnosis and recommend a personalized treatment, from indicating medicines such as prebiotics and probiotics, to recommend dietary supplements or introducing changes in your diet.
Currently, intestinal permeability is evaluated by measuring proteins in the blood. However, with TestUrGut it is possible to observe if there is a decrease in the butyrate-producing bacteria of the intestinal mucosa, a factor that can increase the intestinal permeability favoring an inflammatory state.
Intestinal permeability is usually a consequence of alterations of the tight junctions between cells of the intestinal wall, which decrease leads to increased transport of components and or undesired bacteria into the bloodstream that can trigger chronic inflammation or immunity disorders. Several studies have analyzed the effect of butyrate on intestinal permeability, concluding that it induces the expression of junction proteins, hence keeping permeability (Hamer 2007, Peng 2009, Kelly 2005).
Therefore, dysbiosis or significant alterations in the abundance of muco-nutritive bacteria indicate incremented intestinal permeability.
