Who should take the test?

Are you struggling with lasting abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue and deficiency symptoms? Many people suffer from intestinal inflammation without being aware of it as the symptoms are usually very unspecific. Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, affect as many as 1.6 million Americans, most of whom are diagnosed before age 35. In addition to genetic predispositions, stress, nutrition and toxic influences play an important role.

Measuring the Calprotectin concentration in your stool provides fast and reliable information about a present inflammation in the intestinal tract. Calprotectin is normally increased only in the case of an inflammatory bowel disease, but not in the case of a non-inflammatory irritable bowel syndrome. Thus, this parameter helps to differentiate whether patients suffer from a (chronic) inflammatory or non-inflammatory bowel disease.

Both patients with an initial intestinal inflammation and those with a serious illness can be diagnosed by determing Calprotectin in the stool sample. In addition, the marker lysozyme provides information about the immune function of the intestinal mucosa. For an even more comprehensive picture we recommend our Enhanced Intestinal Inflammation Check, which analyzes Calprotectin and Lysozyme as well as other markers such as sIgA and Alpha 1-antitrypsin to determine the inflammatory status of your intestines.

The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:

  • Calprotectin
  • Lysozyme

Our Calprotectin & Lysozyme Inflammation Check measures the important parameters Calprotectin and Lysozyme in the stool. These markers serve to detect early stages of inflammatory bowel diseases quickly and reliably to then provide patients with efficient, advanced diagnostics and therapy. In addition, these parameters optimize the follow-up of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases.

How does it work?

You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will provide detailed information about whether your Calprotectin and Lysozyme levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?

Test measures
For the Calprotectin & Lysozyme Check we analyse:
  • Lysozyme
  • Calprotectin
Lysozyme

Lysozyme is a component of nonspecific body defense and thus significantly involved in the maintenance of the mucosal barrier capacity and integrity. Lysozyme is formed by granulocytes, monocytes and macrophages and released into the intestinal lumen as part of the inflammatory response.

Calprotectin

Calprotectin is considered equivalent to the activity of granulocytes in centers of inflammation. It plays an important role in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel diseases.

    It’s great to be able to afford such a valuable test – thanks Verisana for making this possible!

    The test itself is pretty good. But you still need someone to explain to you how to proceed with the treatment. The laboratory results alone didn’t tell me much. For the price, however, totally okay. Especially as Verisana offers the service of finding a therapist in your area.

    This test was very helpful and informative. Both parameters show whether an intestinal inflammation is present or not.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why do intestinal inflammations often go undetected for a long time?

The reason for this are the unspecific symptoms. In 2015, an estimated 1.3% of US adults (3 million) reported being diagnosed with IBD (inflammatory bowel diseases). The number of unreported cases is probably significantly higher due to the difficult diagnosis.

How do you recognize intestinal inflammation?

The symptoms vary widely and are often unspecific. They include typical gastrointestinal complaints such as diarrhea, abdominal pain and vomiting. But also symptoms that one would not assign directly to the intestine, such as: fever, general exhaustion, deficiency symptoms or joint and muscle pain.
