Will anti-diarrheal medications affect the Gut Zoomer test?

It is unknown whether the presence of anti-diarrheal medications 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 anti-diarrheal medications 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.
