The test is for everyone who wants to get their gut tested. However, the gut microbiome is affected by changes such as antibiotic use, a bacterial or a viral infection, excessive alcohol consumption in last few hours and travel. The changes in gut microbiome are temporary and the microbiome rebuilds itself after you are back to your normal routine.
Hence, we recommend you not to take the test if you have:
- Consumed antibiotics couple of weeks prior to the test
- Had fever or had viral/bacterial infection 7 days prior to the test
- Had consumed alcohol/recreational drugs 24 hours prior to the test
