A home use stomach ulcer test kit which looks for the bug Helicobacter Pylori. H. Pylori is a major cause of stomach ulcers and is implicated with stomach cancer. You may suspect you may have an ulcer or have stomach ulcer symptoms in which case it may be useful to perform this test as simple, effective treatment for H pylori infection is readily available from your GP.
If you take low dose aspirin infection by H Pylori can make you more liable to stomach bleeds so testing to see if you are infected makes good sense.
Have you ever wondered; do I have a stomach ulcer? You are not alone. Stomach ulcers & stomach ulcer symptoms are very common. But most people don't realise that stomach ulcers are most often caused by an infection by a bacteria called helicobacter pylori which if diagnosed is relatively easy to get rid of. Our fast h pylori test kit confirms this infection. If you are having stomach ulcer symptoms or you think you may have a stomach ulcer (peptic, gastric or duodenal ulcer) it is worth trying our simple home h pylori test.
Why is this h pylori test important to me?
It is estimated that 50% of the world's population today is infected by the stomach bacterium h pylori. People often show no symptoms. It has been shown that long-term the infection by this bacterium causes damage to the mucous membrane of the stomach which gives rise to stomach ulcers. Those infected also have an increased risk of developing stomach cancer.
How do I perform the h pylori test?
Prick your finger quickly and easily with the micro-lancet. Place the drop of blood on the test strip. Add the buffer solution after 30 seconds (see picture 'How to perform the test'). A positive or negative result appears in the window.
What does the test result mean?
Two test lines tell you that you probably have a Helicobacter Pylori infection. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible for a closer examination and treatment.
Why is treatment so important?
If you test positive contact your GP because specific antibiotic treatment can be prescribed. Treatment for stomach ulcers is more difficult than treatment for the infection so finding it before a stomach ulcer develops is clearly a good idea.
An h pylori infection can go unnoticed for years and ulcers may never develop. Sometimes there are no stomach ulcer symptoms or signs presenting. Nor does the successful treatment of one episode guarantee a life free from stomach complaints. This test can indicate a significant risk factor for the development of stomach ulcers or stomach cancer, and enable you and your doctor to target the disease with effective therapy.
If you are taking daily lose dose aspirin as a treatment for another condition or as a precaution against heart disease or cancers infection by H Pylori make stomach bleeds three times more likely. A home helicobacter pylori test can tell you if you are infected, enabling you to get treated and cut the risk of such bleeds.
Our stomach ulcer test looks for antibodies. If you have already been infected with H pylori in the past and the infection was eliminated using antibiotics this stomach ulcer test may still yield a positive result for a year or more after successful treatment as antibodies will remain in your system
