CDSA Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis

A stool analysis goes beyond identifying digestive disorders. Find out how and what a comprehensive stool testing can do for you.

If your body absorbs nutrients poorly, or if the normal balance of bacteria in your gut is compromised, you are likely to suffer not only from digestive disorders but from a whole host of other medical conditions.

At the Health & Vitality Center, we take an integrative approach to wellness. Shiva Lalezar, a holistic doctor in Los Angeles and the Center’s medical director, is fond of saying  “In Functional Medicine, we know that most problems literally start at the gut level.”.

Recognizing this, Dr. Lalezar finds the Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology Test, or CSDA, to be one of the most valuable diagnostic tests available in her practice, because the information it reveals often uncovers the hidden root causes of her patients’ uncomfortable symptoms.

What does the Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology Test provide?

The comprehensive stool test gives us an in-depth view of your digestive system’s performance.

Here are some of the stool analysis tests that will be performed:

  • Look for abnormalities in color and for the presence of blood, mucus, or undigested food
  • Examine the sample microscopically for white blood cells – a hallmark of inflammation – and red blood cells (which may indicate occult, or hidden, bleeding), as well as for globules of fat and starch (indicators of incomplete digestion due to inadequate digestive enzymes or insufficient stomach acid production)
  • Test for beneficial and harmful bacteria (including H. pylori, the organism responsible for causing ulcers and certain types of stomach cancer), yeast, and intestinal parasites
  • Perform a chemical analysis for pH, pancreatic enzymes, bile acids, and other compounds important for good digestion

Note: Although digestive disorders are the most obvious medical conditions one would normally associate with the fact is the CSDA may reveal many other conditions that are less apparent, but still correlated with poor digestion, including:

  • Liver and gallbladder disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and other autoimmune disorders
