Do you have a healthy stomach? Are you sure? Use this H Pylori test kit to check for the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers - you might not even have any symptoms!
Heli-C-CHECK is a simple and reliable self test that detects Helicobacter Pylori antibodies in the blood from a tiny sample from the fingertip. It is Helicobacter Pylori that causes most stomach and duodenal (small intestine) ulcers. People who are infected with this bacteria often show no symptoms at all - however for many, an infection can cause damage to the stomach lining which could lead to stomach inflammation (gastritis) or a stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer). Furthermore, Helicobacter pylori infection can also lead to diseases such as stomach cancer or lymphoma.
So what is a Helicobacter pylori infection?
A Helicobacter pylori infection is defined as a 'colonisation' of the stomach with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. If you are infected with Helicobacter Pylori bacteria it often shows no symptoms! For many however an infection can cause damage to the stomach lining which can lead to stomach inflammation (gastritis) or a stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer). Furthermore Helicobacter pylori infection can also lead to diseases such as stomach cancer or lymphoma. Interestingly Helicobacter pylori infection in humans is often dependent on nationality: It has been observed that in developing countries approximately 70% of 20 to 35 year olds are infected with the pathogen. In developed countries such as Germany or the UK, the bacterium is less common.
In addition, age plays a crucial role: the older the person is, the higher the probability a person will be a carrier of the bacterium.
Is it a stomach ulcer? Is it cancer? How do I take this home test?
Heli-C-CHECK is a rapid, sensitive, easy to use and evaluate home test for the detection of Helicobacter pylori antibodies using a small blood sample from the prick of a finger. This test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of a Helicobacter pylori infection, which may be connected to illnesses like peptic ulcer, inflammation of gastric or duodenal mucosa and other disorders in the upper gastrointestinal region.
A final diagnosis of any of the above mentioned diseases cannot be based on a positive test result alone but should be confirmed by a doctor.
The test requires only one drop of blood from the fingertip and it can be carried out and interpreted in only 5-10 minutes, so results are rapid, effective and private.
Heli-C-CHECK detects the germ in your blood sample using the tape test procedure; a procedure which is considered highly reliable and preferred by doctors and other health professionals.
