We are privileged to work with Washington Gastroenterology (WAGI) on a unique and exciting research program whose goal is to reveal root causes of gastrointestinal diseases. While we currently treat gastrointestinal diseases, the underlying causes or triggers for these conditions are not understood. Even though this study is purely observational (there is no treatment provided), the knowledge gained should enable improved preventative measures in the future, especially those focused on nutrition.
Our diet and microbiome, and their interactions with genetic and other factors, play a crucial role in the onset and progression of many of these chronic diseases, including cancer. The goal of this study is to understand these complex cause-effect relationships, then develop treatments to PREVENT, CURE, AND ELIMINATE these conditions. To do this, we need your help.
This study only accepts current and upcoming patients of Washington Gastroenterology (WAGI).
To thank you, you will receive a $50 Amazon gift card for the first set of samples you provide. If we ask you to provide a second set of samples, you will also receive personalized nutritional recommendations based on your test results.
