Clinical Intestinal Microbiome

Clinical Intestinal Microbiome

The MIC is a metagenomic analysis of the microbiota present in the intestine. The intestinal microbiota is the community of living microorganisms that inhabit our intestines and performs vital functions such as nutrition and metabolism, protective and trophic functions.

The analysis we offer in Laboratorio Echevarne is performed using a stool sample to determine if there is an imbalance in the microbiota (dysbiosis). A dysbiosis can cause certain metabolic functions not to be carried out or that an opportunistic pathogen proliferates because there is no other bacterium that prevents it.

Which patients is it most useful for?

Patients with obesity and/or metabolic diseases: Diabetes Mellitus 2, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), etc.
Patients with gastrointestinal pathologies: gastrointestinal infections, diarrhoea due to the use of antibiotics, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer, etc.
Patients with autism, depression and anxiety.

Like a fingerprint, every person has their own unique microbiome. The aim is to find out what it is like and correct it if there is an imbalance with the diet.

This study is considered to be a very useful tool to help correct imbalances in the gut microbiota through diet, nutritional supplements and/or pharmaceutical products.

What does it analyse?

The genomic DNA of all the microorganisms present in the sample is analyzed by metagenomic sequencing.

Subsequently, bioinformatics analysis is performed to determine the taxonomic composition (abundance, diversity, etc.) and functional structure.

Knowing what function each species present is performing allows us to establish an association with different states of intestinal health.
