CDSA (Digestive Stool) Testing

Gastrointestinal Assessments

Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) Stool testing

The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) is a non-invasive test used for assessing the function of the gastrointestinal system.

Your practitioner will have chosen the most appropriate CDSA test for you, based on your presenting signs and symptoms. A CDSA can assist your practitioner to develop a specific treatment plan, which can help to address issues more quickly and effectively. It can also allow your practitioner to easily decide if further medical procedures may be required (such as a colonoscopy).

The various CDSA tests and the markers they assess include:

CDSA Level 1 – Assesses the appearance of the stool, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts and parasites (visual detection).

CDSA Level 2 – Assesses the appearance of the stool, digestion and absorption markers, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts and parasites (visual detection).

CDSA Levels 3 – Assesses the appearance of the stool, digestion and absorption markers, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts, parasites (visual detection) and sensitivities.

CDSA Level 4 – Assesses the appearance of the stool, digestion and absorption markers, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts, parasites (visual detection and chemical EIA detection) and sensitivities.

CDSA Level 4+ – Assesses the appearance of the stool, digestion and absorption markers, inflammation markers, tumour/ulcer markers, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts, parasites (visual detection and chemical EIA detection) and sensitivities.

CDSA Level 5 – Assesses the appearance of the stool, beneficial and other bacteria, yeasts, parasites (visual detection and chemical EIA detection) and sensitivities.

* Sensitivity testing reveals the most effective treatment for any pathogens detected in the stool. 

There are a range of other stool analysis screening tools we use, and others that are done through your medical doctor or gastroenterologist. Contact us for more information.
