Akkermansia muciniphila

Optimal range: 10 - 50000 Units

b-Glucuronidase

Optimal range: 0 - 2486 U/mL

Beta-glucuronidase is an enzyme that breaks the tight bond between glucuronic acid and toxins in the intestines. The liver and intestine bind toxins, steroid hormones and some dietary components to glucuronic acid. That is a protective process that limits absorption and enterohepatic reabsorption of toxins, and enhances excretion. A high level of activity of Beta-glucuronidase in the gut is not desirable. A low level of Beta-glucuronidase activity is not known to be of any direct clinical consequence.

Optimal range: 67000000 - 100000000000 Units

Calprotectin

Optimal range: 0 - 173 ug/g

Occult Blood - FIT

Optimal range: 0 - 10 ug/g

The fecal occult blood test (=FOBT) looks for blood in your feces. “Occult” (=hidden) means that the blood amount is so small that it cannot be seen with the naked eye. The bleeding does not change the color of the stool or result in visible bright red blood. Therefore, the blood is found only by testing the stool for blood in the laboratory.
