Do you have recurring stomach problems? Suspect it could be an ulcer? Use this stomach ulcer test kit at home for quick and convenient reassurance
It is believed that more than half of people have the bacteria h pylori in their stomachs. This can lead to serious complications when the h pylori attack the lining of your stomach, leaving it vulnerable to your stomach acid. The acid can then burn a hole in your stomach, causing an ulcer.
Symptoms of a stomach ulcer:
- Recurring stomach pain
- Loss of appetite
- Feeling sick and vomiting
- Weight loss
It is important for stomach ulcers to be effectively treated as when they are left alone they can cause dangerous internal bleeding. In the case of a minor stomach ulcer caused by h pylori you will be given a course of antibiotics to clear the infection. Severe ulcers require a hospital stay and possible surgery. H pylori can cause gastritis and stomach cancer, which also cause symptoms like stomach pain, nausea and loss of appetite.
If you’re having stomach problems that you suspect may be an ulcer, you can narrow down the possibility at home with Care Diagnostica’s h pylori test kit. Around 90% of people with ulcers have h pylori in their system, so testing for these bacteria is a good way to determine if you may have one. The box contains everything you need to test yourself– a test cassette, lancet, bottle of testing solution and plaster. The detailed instructions are helpfully illustrated with photos so that you know exactly what to do. The included sterile lancet makes it easy and safe to create a small blood sample, which you then combine with the testing solution. After 10 minutes, the test will display either one or two purple lines; one line is a negative result while two means you have an infection. Once you have your result you can consult your doctor and access treatment to get rid of your h pylori more quickly. In the case of a negative result, you will be able to rule h pylori out as a cause of your symptoms and get closer to a correct diagnosis.
