In general, the CDSA test is useful for assessment of the digestive and absorptive capacities of the gut and for the identification of pathological states. Specifically, the test may yield useful information about the following areas: food allergies, gastric acidity, liver/gallbladder function, presence of inflammation or neoplasm and the microbial status of the colon.
The CDSA test is a very useful diagnostic tool that should be employed in the initial assessment of every patient. Clearly, all aspects of our physiology depend on the provision of the correct nutrients and co-factors. Therefore, a dysfunctional gut may be at the root of any health problem, either directly or indirectly. For example, a B12 deficiency due to insufficient gastric acidity may lead directly to neuropathy, and food allergy may indirectly aggravate an autoimmune condition such as lupus, by placing an additional burden on the immune system.
