The AlvusIBD test examines microbiome data that’s specific to people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and provides evidence-based information that may indicate changes in inflammation or disease status to help you and your healthcare provider monitor your disease.

Living with IBD can feel overwhelming
Once your gastroenterologist determines the best medical regimen to treat your symptoms, you are left to figure out a lot of things on your own. Issues such as what to eat, what not to eat or how to reduce your chance of flares can be continuing sources of confusion and distress.
Luckily, the microbiome in your gut can help provide some answers
AlvusIBD is a test that compares your gut microbiome data to the microbiome of people with and without IBD. This evidence-based information — that your naturopath or integrative healthcare provider monitors over time — may show you early changes in your health status.
Track your IBD score over time
The more information you have about your gut microbiome, the more you'll feel in control of your disease.
What you need to know
AlvusIBD is a fecal microbiome test you can easily take in the privacy of your home to help you better understand your IBD.
