Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is characterized by chronic intestinal inflammation that results in clinical symptoms such as diarrhea, bleeding, abdominal pain, fever, joint pain, and weight loss. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, and may gradually and subtly develop from an initial minor discomfort, or may present themselves suddenly with acute intensity.

IBD is a prevalent cause of chronic illness in a large segment of the patient population. It can manifest itself in two different forms: Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn's Disease (CD). Although the two conditions can appear clinically very similar, UC primarily involves inflammation of the colon and rectum, as opposed to the upper GI tract. Crohn's Disease, on the other hand, impacts a greater area of the upper intestinal digestive tract, and is thus more likely to trigger malabsorption, along with chronic vitamin and nutrient deficiencies.

GSDL offers several assessments that specifically target the physiological mechanisms associated with IBD, allowing physicians to design focused and precise treatment strategies to help prevent development and halt progression of the disease.

IBD and GI Dysbiosis: IBD is believed to develop as a "gut" reaction to intestinal dysbiosis--chronic imbalances in the microbial flora that set off a chain of pathogenic events.

IBD and Intestinal Permeability: A damaged intestinal mucosa triggers and perpetuates IBD by allowing a steady stream of antigens and toxins to continually confront the immune system.

IBD and Parasites: Because certain infectious organisms produce symptoms very similar to IBD, testing for other possible causes is strongly recommended.

IBD and Fatty Acids: The chronic inflammatory immune response that produces many IBD symptoms may be significantly reduced by addressing key imbalances of fatty acids.

IBD and Oxidative Stress: Free radicals mediate the damage to the intestinal outer layer that underlies the progression of IBD.

IBD and Element Imbalances: Levels of zinc, iron, copper and other crucial minerals are often deficient in patients suffering from IBD.

IBD and Allergies: Allergic immune reactions to food particles may play an important role in the development of IBD symptoms.

IBD and Amino Acids: Low levels of important amino acids can provoke aggravated inflammatory responses and may a be a result of IBD-associated malabsorption of nutrients.

IBD and Bone Resorption: Patients with IBD have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis.
