Stool analysis-Anyone ever done it?

Has anyone ever done a stool analysis? Did you go through a private company or through your doctor? I have lots of food allergies and environmental allergies and was thinking about trying to heal my gut based on the analysis.

And here's some more info.: If you don't want to go through a doctor for the Metametrix test, you can order it direct here: http://www.labtestingdirect.com/test-kits/item/?pid=630 Their cost is cheap compared to going through a doctor. Be advised, my Blue Cross insurance did not cover the Metametrix GI Effects test, inspite of the fact that it found things that needing to be fixed. They claimed it was an experimental set of tests.

I went through a naturopathic doctor. I had some blood work done and on the differential blood count tests I had high eosinophils, which is white blood cell related as I recall. To the doc this indicated a low-grade fight my body was engaged in. The cryptosporidium that showed up on my Metametrix test was what was doing it. Once that was knocked out from my system, the EOS went into the normal range. The h. pylori was causing me gut issues, like loose stools, grumbling tummy, etc. Once under control, the gut issues resolved.

I did. It was the Metametrix GI Effects tests: http://www.metametrix.com/test-menu/profiles/gastrointestinal-function/dna-stool-analysis-gi-effects

I came back positive with h. pylori and crytosporidium. Both were treated and taken care of.

h pylori can be diaged with a blood test, it is the bacteria that causes ulcers, and can be cured with a pp inhibitor + levoflaxin , crytosporidium is a protozoa which normally only affects immune system compromised patients, in non compromised patients a person typically fights off the protozoa within weeks of infection (which may or may not cause any symptoms)
