A Complete Approach to Gastrointestinal Disorders
Dr. Kannankeril uses comprehensive testing to assess the underlying reasons for the following gastrointestinal concerns:
- Crohn's Disease
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease), Heartburn
- Chronic Diarrhea
- Celiac Disease
- Food Allergies and Sensitivities (IgE, IgG and IgA testing)
- Candida and Fungal Overgrowth
- Bacterial Infections (including breath testing for SIBO - Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth)
- Helicobacter Pylori
- Parasitic Infections
Based on clinical presentation, Dr. Kannankeril will often order a combination of blood work, stool testing, salivary testing and breath testing. This testing allows for a true picture of what is causing the issue in the first place. Dr. Kannankeril takes the time to explain how the test results relate to their symptoms.
Based on symptoms and test results, Dr. Kannankeril will formulate a complete treatment including dietary changes, specific herbals, amino acids and sometimes prescription medications when necessary.
