Digestive Function
 
Standard Definition

The functions of the digestive system are to break down food into small components that can be absorbed into the rest of the body; and to act as a first line barrier to any toxins and infections in the food we consume.

A properly functioning digestive system is essential for optimum health and the prevention of illness.

 
 
Possible Additional Integrative Medicine Diagnostic Tests

If your symptoms or health concerns indicate a need to properly assess your digestive function you may be asked to do one or more of the following tests:

  • Stool Analysis and appropriate blood and urine tests for the detection of infectious organisms such as bacteria, worms, parasites, yeast, fungi and biochemical abnormalities
  • Breath Testing for the detection of helicobacter Pylori Infection, fructose, lactose and sorbitol malabsorption and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
  • Exclusion and challenge of foods and food groups based on clinical situation
  • Imaging or x-ray of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Visualisation of the stomach and upper and lower intestine (gastroscopy and colonoscopy)
