    I hope people with more knowledge could share their insights and discuss it.:thumbsup:
    All this time ive seen recommendation, superiority of MSA Redlabs over GI metatametrix comprehensive test.
    But what im confused about after I look at the result example from both labs I see that redlabs check only for bacteria though more specific/throurough than metametrix. But it doesnt include yeast/fungal, parasite and other things which is in metametrix test such as:
    Short&long chain fatty acids, inflammation, lactoferrin, immunology, fecal siga, elastase1, triglycerides, putrefactive scfa.

    (Although for parasite metamerix use opr method which is no good especially for overseas patient due to shipment anyway.)
    However I still dont get it. Is redlabs MSA better than metametrix GI comprehensive test? Could someone explain more throurough on this matter?
    Thank you. :thumbsup:

    R.E.D. Laboratories has a separate test for parasites and such.
