New technologies are promising to develop biomarkers of gut health. The most important would be to have predictive biomarkers to anticipate gut health disturbance. Today, macroscopic (ballooning, tonicity, residues…) and microscopic (villi, tight junctions, …) observations help to better appreciate gut health condition but inflammation, immune parameters and microbiota are also important. Microbiota signature is associated with gut disorders, but microbial functional activity is even more predictor of such dysbiosis.
