Who should take the test?
Are you suffering from diverse stomach complaints such as gastric discomfort, heartburn or nausea? Too high helicobacter concentration in your stomach may be the underlying cause.
Helicobacter pylori bacteria pass through the mouth into the body and subsequently into the stomach, where they colonize the gastric mucosa. Infestation with helicobacter pylori is considered as the most common cause of gastritis and may also contribute to the development of gastric ulcers and duodenal ulcers.
The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:
- Helicobacter pylori
Our Helicobacter Pylori Antigen Test gives you information about the helicobater pylori concentration in your body, so that in case of the colonization of your stomach with this bacterium, a drug therapy can be initiated.
How does it work?
You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.
What will my results tell me?
Your results will provide detailed information about whether your helicobacter pylori level is normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Although we do not offer therapy service ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
