Will gout medication interfere with Gut Zoomer test performance?

It is unknown whether the presence of gout medication in a stool sample will interfere with the Gut Zoomer test. Test interference occurs when chemical compounds, materials, or agents interfere with the performance of a test, yielding an inaccurate result. Future research is needed to examine the effect of gout medication on the gut microbiome and human microbiome profiling. At this time the most practical approach would be to test under 'real world' conditions when a person is eating their typical diet, taking their typical medications and supplements, and living their typical lifestyle.
