Stomach Ulcer Health Care Test

Why is this test important to me?
It is estimated that half of the world's population today is infected by the stomach bacterium Helicobacter pylori. Long-term the infection causes damage to the mucous membrane of the stomach and ulcers in 10% of cases. Those infected with this bacterium have an increased risk of developing stomach cancer.

How do I perform the 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. A positive or negative result appears in the window.

What does the result tell me?
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?
The stomach bacterium Helicobacter pylori is the main cause of stomach tumours and ulcers. However there is no cause for undue worry if your result is positive and your doctor confirms the condition, because specific antibiotic treatment can be prescribed for about a week.

What are my chances of developing stomach ulcers?
It is not certain how the Helicobacter pylori infection is transmitted. Often it is transmitted orally from mother to child. Transmission happens less frequently with age; poor hygiene promotes the spread of the infection.
An infection can go unnoticed for years. 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.
